Could you please paraphrase the underlined part in the following quotation:
"There may a judge out there stupid enough to emancipate you but until you find him I retain all my parental rights. One of which is to ground your sorry behind until kingdom come."
Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation!
(1) You probably already know this, but "behind" in this sentence
is referring to the "buttocks." For example, sometimes an angry
person might say:
Get out of here, or I'm going to kick you in your behind.
(2) And "sorry" in your sentence means something like "pathetic"
Just to add to TheParser's helpful comments, such expressions as "your adjective ****" (when the asterisks represent some term for buttocks that might be considered offensive by some) is often used jocularly or offensively for 'you'.
