Nip it in the butt, or bud?

Butt vs Bud   11 members have voted

  1. 1. Which do you say?

Without looking it up, which version of the phase do you side with? Obviously only one is correct, but most I've asked in person haven't been.. so now I'm really curious.

 

Spoiler

Nip/nick in the bud is correct; you're stopping something before it advances/gets worse.

Oddly, this is familiar to you... as if from an old dream.

IT'S NOT A PHASE DAD! YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND.

Though I've heard it both. But only buds make sense to me since it sounds like snipping a flower bud.

Sheesh. If you're going to nip it in the butt, at least take me out to dinner, first.

 

 

Anyway, I think the wrong one was the first version I heard, but I later looked it up and found out the right version.

In my entire life I've never heard the term "nip it in the butt" used, until now :)

Butt must be a country thing lol I'd never heard it until recently. 

 

Someone at work tried correcting my "bud" to "butt", and so I explained bud, and it blew 4 of 5 peoples minds in the office. They were like "Holy ahit, that makes way more sense!"

I've always heard it said bud.

 

I don't think I've ever used that phrase though because only old people say it.
