Who was the person who coined the phrase "Kiss my ass"

How was the phrase origionally worded?

This one is more interesting than you think if you look into it.

From the play "The Killing of Abel" ? Cain talking to Abel in hopes of having a homosexual encounter.

[LOL] No, but entertaining answer. Here is a short Bio of the person. 1480–1562, German knight and adventurer. The head of a band of free soldiers, he lost (1504) his right hand in the battle of Landshut and wore an iron one in its place. His forays against various cities earned him popular fame. He reluctantly agreed to lead the peasants of Franconia during the Peasants’ War (1524–26) but deserted them before their defeat. In 1542 he served with Holy Roman Emperor Charles V against the Turks and two years later fought against the French. His memoirs inspired a Goethe drama in (1773).

and I was so close The play was written in 1450 "Com kis myn ars, me list not ban, . . . Com nar, and other drife or hald, And kys the dwillis toute! Go gres thi shepe under the toute, For that is the most lefe." In normal English: "Come kiss my ass, I won't curse. Come near and kiss the devil's buttocks! Go grease your sheep under their buttocks, for that is dear to you" The stuff you can find on the internet.

Getting closer. He is rhomored to have not made this comment until 1525. It was durring the seige of a castle he was defending. It was part of his reply to unacceptable surrender demands IIRC. His name is one of an SS Panzer Grenadier Division. He may not have been the first to say the phrase, but is given credit with comming up with it.

ah , now you made it easier. Gotz von Berlichingen, though I should have picked up on your other earlier clues. When asked to surrender he said," "Who do you think you're talking to? Am I some robber? Tell your captain: I respect His Imperial Majesty as always, but as for your captain, tell him he can kiss my ass!" Actually McAuliffe was pretty close situation wise. I think you should give me and QCMGR both credit being day after Chrsitmas and all.

You got it. Just for conversation sake, who was McAuliffe, and what was his "situation"?
