I know the phrase "laugh my ass off", meaning "laugh at it a lot".
I checked with two American friends. One said "ass off" could apply to other verbs, but he didn't give me any examples indeed. Well, the other guy said "No, ass off only worked in the phrase laugh my ass off".
Question: Is "ass off" a common set which could apply to most of verbs in English? Or merely in laugh my ass off? In another word, can I say "I tried my ass off" or "I worked my ass off"?
