Context: "Petrified Man", a short story by Eudora Welty. Setting: Louisiana, a ladies' hairdressing salon. A conversation between the hairdresser, female, and her client, also female. Topic of discussion: a 'freak show', and in particular, the "pygmies" or dwarfs. Leota to Mrs. Fletcher-- So...Questions are...is this term, bohunkus, which I assume to mean rump, backside, posterior, butt, etc, common in the South? Is it used elsewhere? Does it have a plural form?
