Butt Jokes

Related:

Butts are the butt of many visual jokes, usually with sound-effects. Sometimes, Herbie falls on adversaries, butt first, resulting in severe damage.

In addition to the visual gags, there are some suggestive names such as BumBum in #6a and Coach Bumpo in #21a, as well as villains like Black Bottomley in #10a and Black Bumby in #19a.

Index terms: bottom, hiney, behind, read end, butt, Richard E. Hughes, Ogden Whitney

It's not a butt joke like the others, but the tiger says "Butt out, Herbie" and Herbie's butt is out.
