    I used that new Google Books search engine and found that "ass" is much more in vogue than "butt."  This supports your use of the former in your diary title.  

    But what was going on with the butt fetishes during WW II? Check out the data at the link below:

      I put in the link for genocide which was leftover from another, more serious search.  Notice that the word didn't really occur in print until after WW II.  There was a small blip after 1900 that could be associated with the US murder of more than 1 million Filipinos.  The US soldiers took  killed farm animals and destroyed crops to pacify the occupied Philippines during that period.  About 4000 US soldiers died.  Sound familiar?
