Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The singular form of this word is "buttock". One human has a pair of "buttocks". Am I safe in assuming that two humans have four "buttocks"? One and a half humans: three buttocks? —This comment was unsigned.

Certainly two humans would normally have four buttocks between them, but with one and a half humans, it really depends which half you have: the left and right halves each have one buttock, yes, but the bottom half has two and the top half has nary a one. —RuakhTALK 02:11, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Three humans would be 6 buttocks, 10 and 1/2 humans would be 21, 22, or 20, depending on which half you had. The equation, where a whole number n = the number of humans is 2(n). The only tricky part is with the fractional humans.
