"Slangy", "colloquial", "earthy" or something like that would be a better description of the word. Regarding "butthurt" as an exaggeration of some other word seems (yes, that word again :P ) like missing the mark, and it definitely won't fit at all as another word for a two-dimensional, cone-shaped curve.

It's an exaggeration, given the overall effectiveness of gobshite's rhetorical program. For your information, a 'cone-shaped curve' looks for all the world like the profile of a dunce cap along its vertical axis.
