It was not pretty the day I debated a butcher on WHY a "butt" was a "shoulder"?

I wanted to buy a 'butt roast" to make my FI'sL sausage per his recipe instructions. The butcher pointed me toward a "shoulder roast."

Up until that point, my entire culinary usage of the term "butt" had to do with the back-end of a body. A butt was a butt.

The butcher kindly explained to me SEVERAL TIMES that "butt" in this case was an anatomical term for the connection to the shoulder.
