When someone says "fanny" do you think of that as the US version or the UK version (i.e. back bottom, or front bottom of a lady)?

Rear end. I've only heard the other fanny mentioned by people from the UK.

Oh weird! I have NEVER heard fanny in that context. So fanny packs must be hilarious in the US.

Well really, when I was a youngster any time an American said fanny meaning arse, we thought it was hilarious because didn't they know what fanny really meant? It doesn't have quite the same impact now, after having taken in several decades of imported popular culture.

To a French Canadian... "Fanny" is a common enough girl's name...
