Why do some people add '-ass' to adjectives? To emphasize?
Like: 'that was a long-ass journey!'
Or: 'those are some big-ass titties!'
Are we tryna like say something about asses?

Somebody tell me.
:/

If you put the emphasis on ass it changes the meaning all together.

Friend: "That's a big ass nug"
Me: "What's an ass nug?"

This question will plague mankind for some time to come. Even the people who use it don't know why. If they can't explain it...who can?

I can explain it.
It's cause asses are great.
We all love ass to some degree.
And I'm not afraid to admit it.
Ass is nice.

That doesn't sound right.
It's better if you say "She has a big-ass butt."

my personal favorite: "i'm a grown-ass man"
...doesn't really apply to myself, but there's something about it that always makes me laugh
