Ussy refers to the suffix "-ussy," used to make portmanteaus with the word "pussy." The internet slang trend predates meme history, surfacing in LGBTQ+ discourse as early as the late 1980s with the word Bussy. Other iterations have since appeared like Nussy, Thrussy, Thussy and the meme template Who Need They Pussy Ate? Memes emerged in abundance in late 2021 about Words That End In -Ussy.
The first known portmanteau with the suffix "-ussy" was Bussy, originally added to Urban Dictionary on March 7th, 2004, by user four_stave_score, where over the course of eighteen years, it's received over 500 likes (shown below). The definition labels it as a mix of "butthole" and "pussy," but most definitions label it as a portmanteau of "boy" and "pussy," referring to the hole of a bottom.
Multiple definitions of the word note that the word had been used by the queer community starting in the early 1990s or late 1980s. An exact origin is unknown, however.
The word remained a fixture of the gay cultural lexicon but did not begin seeing widespread usage online until the mid-00s. On December 22nd, 2014, Twitter user @lohanthony tweeted, "i hate when people ask me if i'm a boy or a girl… bitch you KNOW i'm a boy…. now come over here and eat this bussy…" The tweet received more than 4,000 likes and 850 retweets, becoming the first tweet featuring the word to top 1,000 likes (shown below).
Words That End With -Ussy
Due to the popularity of the Who Need They Pussy Ate? meme and "-ussy" words like Bussy gaining notable popularity in 2021, a stereotype started to develop online about words that end in "-ussy." However, the first mentioning of this cliche in memes happened as early as 2017 on Twitter.
On May 26th, 2017, Twitter user takeourshots posted a tweet that read, "Please stop combining words with "pussy" and adding the "ussy" at the end of the word," which earned no likes after being posted (shown below). However, it is the first known instance of the concept being highlighted online.
On July 28th, 2017, Twitter user adamjmoussa tweeted, "people are out here writing actual clever commentary on current affairs and i'm just wondering what words I can end with ussy," earning seventeen likes in four years (shown below, top). On September 9th, 2017, Twitter user gabbomatic tweeted, "words that end in -ussy have been ruined. All of them," earning eight likes in four years (shown below, bottom).
Twitter user Skoog posted a tweet related to words ending in "-ussy" on July 28th, 2020, earning roughly 3,500 likes in two years (shown below).
Nowhere did the concept of words ending in "-ussy" trend more heavily, however, than on TikTok, starting in late 2021. The first user to post a Words Ending With "-Ussy" video was TikToker gabetinge on July 27th, 2021, who received roughly 3,000 plays and over 160 likes in six months (shown below, left). On September 20th, TikToker dc_williams123 posted a more notable example, receiving roughly 1 million plays and 225,600 likes for his video (shown below, right).
More TikTokers joined onto the trend going into the remainder of 2021 and into 2022. For instance, TikToker mikes.mic posted a video on October 8th that received roughly 232,200 plays and 57,400 likes over the course of three months (shown below, left). On January 12th, 2022, TikToker miles_tzu posted a video that received roughly 5.3 million plays and 1.2 million likes over the course of twenty days (shown below, right).
The next "-ussy" word to enter the lore besides Bussy was Thrussy, being a portmanteau of the words "throat" and "pussy." Its first use was posted to Tumblr on April 25th, 2017, by Tumblr user earthnation. In the post, they replied to a message asking "I want to fuck your throat", adding the reply "my thrussy!?!?" (shown below). Within 72 hours, the post gained over 26,500 notes.
Thussy / þussy / They/Them Pussy
Soon after Thrussy, the word Thussy was coined to combine the nonbinary pronouns "they/them" with the word "pussy." The first known mentioning of the word "thussy," which pre-dates the later term "þussy" and "they/them pussy" occurred on Tumblr in April 2017. On April 29th, 2017, Tumblr user pyrruby responded to an anonymous message mentioning the word "thussy" replying, "WWAHATS A THUSSY" (shown below).
The first use of the term "they/them pussy" came from Twitter user pigeonboyalex on December 19th, 2019, who tweeted "they/them pussy be grippin?? i had no idea please educate me," earning over 30 likes in three years (shown below).
Another "-ussy" word that garnered a lot of attention in memes is Nussy which combines the words "nose" and "pussy." The first use of this portmanteau was tweeted by Twitter user muuear on March 19th, 2017 (shown below). Unfortunately, the tweet has since been deleted.
Who Need They Pussy Ate?
Who Need They Pussy Ate refers to a series of Wojak comics in which a surreal version of a Doomer Boy or other male Wojak asks if anyone wants to receive oral sex, with a Doomer Girl or other female Wojak responding "omg me!" The format, initially spread in the form of "Long Distance Wojaks" memes, achieved popularity with post-ironic versions spawned by the Shroomjak meme in July 2021. As the meme progressed, more and more "-ussy" words were added into the mix, helping "-ussy" portmanteaus reach peak saturation towards the end of 2021.
On April 2nd, 2021, Twitter user koldkorporate posted the original Long Distance Wojak comic that would later turn into the Who Need They Pussy Ate? meme. The post received 100 retweets and over 1,500 likes in three months (shown below, left). On April 7th, 2021, Twitter user tillytildaa posted the first edit of the comic, changing Doomer Girl's location to Texas. The post received over 160 retweets and 2,000 likes in the same period (shown below, right).
On April 26th, 2021, Twitter user lushawnays posted a version of the comic with the dialogue altered to "who needs they pussy ate? / Omg me!" The post received over 1,400 retweets and 16,100 likes in three months (shown below).
Clussy is a portmanteau of the words "clown" and "pussy." The term came to prominence in late 2017 following the release of the film It featuring the character Pennywise the Clown. A Tumblr user first uttered the slang term in reference to losing their virginity to Pennywise.
Although "clussy" had been used by Twitter user Georgeous_Fox on August 22nd, 2017, to refer to the ARMS character Lola Pop, the term didn't receive mainstream recognition until September 2017 when Tumblr user slushi was asked an anonymous question by one of his followers. The question read, "Headcanons about pennywise taking your virginity???" and slushi responded with a long-form answer, ending it by saying, "But also like I feel that he can change his dick/clussy/etc.. So like idk,, it'd be very interesting." In one month, the post received six notes (shown below).
