AFAIK never used in canon.   (Anything in the paq'batlh?)

Not canon, but Lawrence used the word in an email:

  *vay' SoplaH Saj 'ej tlhovDI' Sa'Hut yInSIp tlhuD.
   ["..he farts"  (Lawrence, 7/02/2011)]

taD wrote about qep'a' 10-DIch (2003):

  The introduction of the word {Sa'Hut} was rather memorable -
  just imagine a circle of Klingonists doing the hokey pokey
  (like we do at every {qep'a'}). If you aren't familiar with
  it, the song goes more or less: 
  [going around the circle, the first person shouts a Klingon
  body part] :
     You put your [body part] in
     You put your [body part] out
     You put your [body part] in and you shake it all about
     You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
     That's what it's all about
  As we go around the circle, each person naming a body part,
  we get words like {DeSqIv}, {jat}, and for laughs, {qIvon},
  {ngech}, and newer words such as {marwI'}. After Marc chose
  everyone's favorite word {'I'} the first time around the circle,
  we get to Marc again. Everyone quiets down to hear him say:
  "{Sa'Hut}". For a moment, everyone is dumbfounded, including
  myself. He later said that the looks on our faces was priceless.
  The neurons are firing in everyone's brains, obviously going
  down their mental list of body part vocabulary, or trying to
  figure out if they misheard Marc, or maybe they forgot one the
  obscure regional forehead words. And then when he puts his
  {Sa'Hut} in, everyone realizes that {Sa'Hut} is a new word,
  and we all follow suit with our own {Sa'HutDu'}.

Replaced the unofficial slang term {'o'} "aft".

PUN(1):  *tuchas* (Yiddish for buttocks) backwards
PUN(2):  "ass-sa-nine", i.e. {Hut} (naHQun)
