:cry: That is a real shame. :cry: His backside/ derriere/ rump/ fanny [U.S. slang]/ behind/ seat of his pants/ posterior/ seat of correction (where the paddle turns the skin red) guns were part of what made him so cute. Who else but a little kid would have a weapon in such an undignified place as that? :lol: A nine year old with the short round proportions of a toddler, a waistband that was nearly up to his under arms, and huge (tall and innocent) eyes, big round face, tiny nose and mouthImage Imagewas not cute enough for Osama, so he put a dual fifty caliber machine gun in his bottom/ rear-end/ sitting place, as icing on the 'cuteness' cake. ImageAlthough his fights were serious, every time he opened up with his machine guns, I found myself snickering. :lol: It was just plain silly, in the same way as little kids' store-bought Halloween costumes. Who else but a very young person would wear something so dumb? A one-piece costume with an action scene on the tummy, a vertical opening in the back like Denis the Menace' rear-entry blanket sleeper, and a cute mask. As silly as these costumes were, the kids wearing them would begin to act out the personalities of the characters, thinking themselves as being those characters. So, Astro Boy had a weapon in the most undignified place possible. Notice that the adult form of Atlas did not retain his own tail/ back side/ tush mounted machine guns. :lol:

I rencently took 6 semester hours in communication studies, and I know how words' meanings can vary even within a country. As for me, I speak regular American English. :D

It's a shame that he won't have machine gund in his butt/hips anymore. As silly as it looked, it actually comes in handy. Like if he's being chased or if he's carrying someone or something.

I think the silliness was the whole point of the bottom-mounted machine guns. :D
