:::''Butt'' is used just like ''ass'' in these constructions. These are not set phrases inasmuch as adjectives (''sorry'', ''pathetic'', etc) can intervene. We have the following at [[[[ass]]]]: "''(slang)'' One's self or person, chiefly their body." and at [[[[but]]]]: "''(slang)'' Body; self." As the use of this as a subject and reflexively may be somewhat unexpected, perhaps such usage should appear among the usage examples at [[[[ass]]]] and [[[[butt]].
