origin

  • The term "astroturf" is a play on "grassroots". "Grassroot movements" arise organically through the people. "Astroturfing", then, is artificial grassroots.

as useless as tits on a boar hog

expression

  • absolutely futile; pointless, worthless, inept or absurd; good-for-nothing or idiotic. More commonly used in the southern US. See also worthless as tits on a boar hog.

    Refers to the effectiveness and biological necessity of nipples on a boar hog; "boar" being the general term for an uncastrated male pig therefore implies that because a boar hog lacks dairy-producing mammary glands, the nipples are rendered pointless and of no use.
    To convey a person's ineptitude, pointlessness or perhaps work ethic, one might say: "His teenage son is as useless as tits on a boar hog!"
    A two-wheel drive in the mud is as useless as tits on a boar hog.

ate up with the dumb ass

  • First of all, dumb doesn't mean retarded. I see it as meaning that you're so sure of yourself that you take others for granted. Cockiness of a 'winner' toward a 'loser' would be considered "ate up with the dumb ass."
