Is it

(a) hiney
(b) heinie
(c) ______ (other)

for "toucas," that is.

This has always bothered me, and as a professional editor it bugs me to no end that I don't know the right answer. It's not in any of my dictionaries.

To me it is "hiney". Short for "behind".
To me, "heinie" is a sip of Heineken beer and I'm not sure I spelled the beer name correctly.

Oh... and is it a hiney or an hiney?

I've always spelled it "hiney". I remember in Kindergarten, one of my classmates names was Dave Hindman. We all called him HINEYman. ;D ;D ;D

It begs the question, what publication are you editing that requires this knowledge? :D

I think it's "heiny."
