Websters says heinie, which just looks weird to me.

I use hiney...and always wondered why it was Happy Heiny's (not as in plural, but as ownership: Heiny's not heinies, kwim?)

no offense Linda just an observation. And ALL those spellings are starting to look wierd the more I look at them:LOL Like when you're writing a document long hand and the words 'and' & 'what' start looking like they're spelled wrong...

I found this in a slang dictionary for "hiney"

Quote:
noun the buttocks or backside. Also, heiny. [originally US, from hindquarters or hinders]
But i spell it "hiney". Does that date me as a CD'er, since I see HH and STILL think Heavenly hineys, not Happy Heinys?

I gues ihave never written it I was sure I had an opinion but once I got to thinking about I had no idea how I spelled it. I don't think I ever have.

Wow, I guess that "i before e" rule just doesn't apply when you're talking rear-ends.

Too funny

I spell it Heiny
Kind of reminds me of Heineken

The actual name though was a recommendation from members of a different cd board and that was also how they spelled it.

Actually (sorry, it's the homeschooler in me), the phrase, "i before e except after c," is only PART of a rule. :LOL You can go here to see the whole rule. When it sounds like long i, it's supposed to be spelled ei.
