Pastime:

If you see another child with money you yell- "Butts on you." He then must share anything he buys with that money with you. However, when he pulls out his money, if he yells - "fan butts" first, then he doesn't have to share his purchases.

Submitter comment:

Bill used to play this as a child when he was given money, or if one of his friends was given money. He said it was common to yell this.
