Bahookie is a Scots word for your bum. Whether you’re idly sitting on your bahookie, or asking for a kick up the bahookie you can say the word with feeling.


You might well be sitting on the sofa, but you’re also sitting on your bahookie. It’s your bottom, your bum, your arse! It’s a fine Scottish word that everyone should use, much more earthy and expressive than bum… and don’t even get me started on what the Americans call it! That one starts with F and means something completely different in the UK.
