Merriam Webster did a whole blog entry on the history and growth of the word "asshat" which I find interesting because I already kind of regard it as sort of archaic. I never heard it before going onto internet forums in the early 2000s and I've heard it very rarely since then.

@srol a good read, thank you

I try to do my part to keep the word alive, unlike those joyless asshats over at Oxford. it's a nice word for specific situations.

@srol informal survey of the one other person in the room:

"when's the last time you heard the word 'asshat'?"
"a couple weeks"
"when's the last time you heard the word 'asshat', not from me?"
"I don't know, maybe a year?"
