Subject: Re: ?Earliest Citation of "Bite Me"
I recall "Bite my ass" in teenage male speech from the 1940s and 1950s
in South Texas. Could have connections to North Texas or Arkansas. It
could be a way of "telling off" someone who had done something mildly
or greatly offinsive to the prospective "bitee." Though salatious to a
degree, I don't recall it being fellatious. One could also say "Well,
bite my ass" to indicate low credibility upon hearing something someone
said. Or one could say it upon hitting one's thumb instead of a nail.
Somehow it scares me to think that "bite me" is "fellatious" (is this your
coinage, Don?). I also thought it meant "bite my ass"--a possibly painful
but less seriously damaging kind of bite, I imagine.
