Buns of Steel


Buns of Steel
n.
Jocular physical trait required to sit through an extremely long meeting.
Example Citation:
Here's a statement you probably never thought you'd hear: There's a real barnburner going on at the Illinois Commerce Commission.
The ICC? Home of the bureaucratic boredom Hall of Fame? Isn't that the place where "Buns of Steel" describes what's needed to sit through interminable arguments about penny-ante increases in electric and telephone rates?
— David Greising, "Trained Sitters Stand Up to Pair of Bulldozers," Chicago Tribune, June 11, 1999
Notes:
This phrase borrows from the title of the Buns of Steel exercise video that was a bestseller in the late 1980s. Buns is a slang term for the buttocks, which are what one sits on during a long meeting, so having Buns of Steel would be an asset, indeed.
