Front Bums

I thought I had more than a reasonable knowledge of offensive terms and jargon, but I had never ever heard the term “front bums” before John Tamihere used it to describe the Governor-General, the PM, the Chief Justice and the Speaker.

I assumed it was referring to women’s breasts, but as others have pointed out it is far more crude than that. The urban dictionary refers people to the definition for peenub, but anyway it seems it is not a term of respect and admiration.

I was somewhat bemused that the PM claimed to not know what a tosser is, but did appear to know what a front bum is, saying the term ‘front bums’ to describe women was crude” in the NZ Herald.

How many people had heard of that term before this weekend?
