Hinges are works mechanical that permit of a door to be opened, yet to remain attached at one side. Of hinges, there are three sorts; those being strap, pintle, and butt. Of these, the butt is formed of cast iron, and is the largest of the three. I like big butts and I can not lie. You other brothers can’t deny, That when a door swings out on an itty bitty hinge, And a round thing in your face, It gets sprung, You wanna pull it out rough. ‘Cause you notice that butt was stuffed Deep in the wood and it’s wearing. I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring. Oh baby, I wanna re-hang you. And take my hammer and bang you….
