Following some discussion in the Beer Parlor I am renominating butt monkey to give the proponents another chance to show the value of this term. Go to town guys. - TheDaveRoss 08:31, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Current status:
  1. An annoying and irking person.
    • Mark Tarsi "I replied and called him a "butt-monkey" and reminded him that I had truly looked everywhere online and couldn't find it." (I think this is the definition this one supports)
  2. An object of ridicule.
    • 2000, Marti Noxon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 5, Episode 79: “Buffy vs. Dracula”
      Xander: I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis. [...] I'm finished being everybody's butt monkey.
  • The Butt Monkey (Used as a psuedonym for a client, I don't think it is a valid citation, but that is open to interpretation.)
    Used elsewhere within the page as well. ∂ανίΠα
  • XML feed of something or other
    "That’s what I want to know. Novack was the only one who published the information–why the heck isn’t he under the most pressure? But of course the answer is politics, he’s a Republican butt monkey and so won’t be punished. Too bad there’s no state laws under which he could be pursued by a Democratic AG." (doesn't use the phrase in either of the two meanings.)
    Well I've given you plenty of quotations now to determine the meanings for yourself. ∂ανίΠα
  • Beavis and Butthead Do America (um...?)
    It's in the movie (just Google "the title" + the word), but I've cited an earlier episode that I found. In fact it was in many episodes but they're generally not scripted online, so I'm wondering how to find the earliest mention. ∂ανίΠα
  • (Doesn't contain the phrase "butt monkey")
    Strange. Not archived either so I can't double-check. Contains "butt" and "monkey" separately, so it could have been a mistake. Doesn't matter anyways. ∂ανίΠα 17:58, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
All quotes on page appear to support first def. Removed second def. Andrew massyn 19:21, 19 July 2006 (UTC) Removed An object of ridicule.

Reinstated second definition, indicating which quotations do not fit "An annoying and irking person." The second definition might need some work, but the quotations do indicate a second meaning IMO. DAVilla 20:02, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Alternative usage - unwilling male homosexual sex partnerEdit

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 6 Episode 20, character Jonathan about a possibly homosexual fellow prisoner: "I think he wants to make me his butt monkey". --Kingboyk 14:38, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
