jacksy

n
the arse, anus, buttocks. A fairly inoffen-sive working-class word, particularly pop-ular in the north of England, jacksie (the form jaxy has also been recorded) dates from the 19th century. It is probably an affectionate diminutive form of the com-moner nickname jack. Instances of the word in American speech point to a recent borrowing from British usage.
► 'The jewel in the jacksie of South London, this place is.' (My Beautiful Laundrette, British film, 1985)
► 'I've got ten minutes to spare. If you like I can redecorate the front room. A better idea still, why don't we shove a broom up my jacksie and I could sweep the floor at the same time.' (Moonlighting, American TV series, 1989)
