Don't Talk Behind My Hiney!

In Mandarin, Chinese say  "back-biting" just like we refer to talking behind someone's back in the English language.  However, in the Taiwanese language, which I continue to study part-time in order to be able to work more effectively among the people here, I just learned backbiting is referred to as talking behind someone's buttocks! This is not considered rude or crude, just the way the language works. So after you've read this please don't go say anything bad about anyone behind their hiney!
