comment Origin of the idiom “butt of jokes”
As an addendum, I would also like to point out, that in the English language, 'butt' meaning something blunt derives from it's original meaning of a large barrel rather than the human posterior. Hence the infamous lane in the UK 'Butthole Lane' which made the news when take-away companies refused to deliver food there, thinking it was a joke, rather than named after a damaged vessel!
