    That’s a neat, elegant comment, Lyn, but is it true?

    No, it's not like bath and path which are long in the south and short in the north.  arse is long a arse and ass is short a ass

    Maybe it depends on one’s figure. 

    Some people are long in the arse, some are short assed.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    But the sort of ass that has four legs, long ears and can be as stubborn as a mule may eat grass but it’s always pronounced with a ‘short a’  , no matter how much of an ar$e it may be being 😝

    surely arse to rhyme with farce? 
    I think  I'd use arse to describe a person, but ass to describe a bottom:
    He's an arse.
    Nice ass!

    Nice bum will do for me.  Asses have lovely long ears and gentle faces unless it's a 2 legged idiot being stupid..

    Apart from sticking bums to toilet seats, does superglue work on anything - at all?

    Many thanks folks, my education has been improved! Try as I might, I couldn't think of anything that fitted - I must lead such a sheltered life!

    Why do humans assume asses are stupid because they sometimes have an opinion.
