continued again:

Bizzare would run over Gary Payton while eminem fakes out Shaq

>>"fake out" --> using his dribble skill and fake action to cheat the man who is duty for defense, right?

Laughing a lot. It's a way of saying you found something very funny. ;-)

Could it be offensive?

I talk my ass off. Does that make sense? Can I can put any verb I want?

I don't think it is offensive unless you put ass(crack) after fuck...

No, it is not considered offensive. You can laugh your ass off, you can talk your ass off, and you can, I suppose, work your ass off, but you cannot, I think, swim your ass off. (But I could be wrong.)

And don't forget that in the UK, we have 'arses', not 'asses'.;-)

"ass" is not considered proper in Chinese though.

No, it's not proper. But it's not improper either. That is, it depends on the situation. It certainly would not be considered appropriate in formal speech situations.
