: I'm looking for the origin of the phrase "flat ass" as in "flat ass calm".

I've not heard this phrase. Having thus confessed my total ignorance, I'm going to guess that "flat ass calm" is a riff on "flat calm," as in, say, no waves, real or figurative, "ass" being thrown in to provide color. Or I'm completely wrong.
