Asshat is a very confusing word. Exactly how do you pronounce this?
To me, it would be pronounced ASH - AT.
I don't think that's correct though, but that's how it reads to me.
I imagine one is supposed to think ASS HAT.
But that really makes no sense. What kind of an insult is that? Calling someone a hat? A hat would not stay on an ass anyway.
Side note - I'm an American and I could never understand why Britons insulted each other by calling them a "sod". Sod = expensive pre grown grass
which is used in landscaping. When you hear "sod" in the US - it's in reference to grass. Just a head's up for travelers.
(I do understand what the Brits mean by this now
