When you put yourself in an unnecessary situation or position causing hardship to yourself that you could have easily avoided with the easiest of solutions already known to you, or if you had of just used your head.
Also if someone else puts you in that situation or position
-If someone borrows your diesel truck and fill it up with gasoline to save 20 cents a litre, you have been Bassetted
-If you bring a knife to a gun fight you have Bassetted yourself

A member of the scent hound family of dogs. They are known for their very long ears, adorable sad expression, and talentled nose. A basset's sense of smell is second only to the bloodhound. They have very long ears, a prominent haw (which gives them droopy looking eyes), and short little legs. They usually weigh 50-70 lbs. The basset hound was initially bred for hunting rabbits. Basset means "low set" in french.

Bassets are very sweet, kind-hearted dogs. They love everyone and everything and will drag you to say hello to everyone they see (or smell!). They have the traditional hound stubborness, but owners love them for it! This determination to get their way is often comical. They are not the dog for you if you demand a dog's undivided attention or obedience, but are the perfect dog for someone who will love them to pieces and have a sense of humor about their antics.

Beware- You will become addicted to this wonderful breed!

Roast basset is what happens to basset hounds who misbehave.
"This roast basset is delicious," said Mrs. Pevensey, "was he very naughty?"

"Ooh yes," said Mrs. Penzance, "muddy feet, you know,"

"Mmm, terrible," said Mrs. Pevensey, "but to be fair, this roast testicle is scrumptious."

1. BASSET HOUND = Mountain lion a male 45 -55 yo. 2. A Basset Hound is similar to a Wolf Hound, only it refers to an un-attrative past his prime man seeking younger women. 3. The only difference between the terms Basset Hound and and Wolf Hound are that Wolf Hounds are usually somewhat attractive and Basset Hounds are usually quit wrinkled, worn out and loose.
What happened to Charlie Sheen he is such a Basset Hound.
