  • My mom would occasionally mutter something that sounded like "mucā audzis pa spundi barots." When I finally asked her what it meant, she told me that in the old days (in the old country) folks might keep a pig in barrel next to the kitchen door as a sort of living garbage disposal and that if a person was being uncouth, you'd say he or she was "raised in a barrel and fed through the hole in the side."

    See bunghole.
