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.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

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.
