slumry commented on the word bassackwards
I'm interested in this--I have a hunch that the term fell into disuse for a while. It seems to me that when I heard it in the 1960s it sounded somewhat old-fashioned. Perhaps it is having a revival!

Really??? (I've been saying that a lot tonight.) I hadn't heard it until a few years ago. Maybe people just don't use it around me.
Humorous euphemistic spoonerism for assbackwards. Goes back to the 1940s or 1950s, or before.
