The Art of Kissing Butt!


Find Out How the Loser Wins!

It was 1870 in Provence, a section of France, where the sport of pétanque (boules or bocce) was and still is a popular pastime. Who would have thought that this prim and proper little town would pretty much be the birthplace of the term of “Kiss my ass!’
Well, it’s not exactly KMA, but it is pretty close and the reason this term came to be is about as obscure as anyone could have imagined. Well, we have the all the lip smackin’ facts coming to you straight from a 19th century bocce court and the hapless mayor who was the first to put lips-to-butt on demand!
