From "How to Talk Trash In Cherokee", by John Oocumma.
Every culture has this policy and Cherokee is no exception.
"Ook" is a word that means "donkey" or the part of your anatomy that
you sit on and which you cover when something you've done gets blamed
right on you. Call it you posterior or your rump or your butt or your bottom
side... it's still your "ook" as far the Cherokee are concerned.
There is another Cherokee word that means "hole in the ground."That
word is "shan."There is nothing wrong with the word but when you combine
it with "ook" it describes a despicable person.
We don't have to draw you a picture, now do we? Well, maybe we
should. Take the word "OOK" and follow it with the word "SHAN" then have
him kicking the crutches out from under a cripple and we'll throw his "ook"
out the window into some "shan" outside. Got it now?
You've only got one "ook"so protect it.
