Fake Etymologies

Interesting is better than true.

boo‧ty, n. /buːti/

In the sense of a slang term for an attractive human rear end, unrelated to the “treasure” sense. A shortening of the mating metaphor “to knock boots.” It may even have begun as a diminutive form, but sources are not definitive one way or the other.

This makes the colloquialism “booty call” actually closer to the original intent of the word than current usage would otherwise indicate.
