Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Carrot"

The meaning of "Carrot" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does A carrot up the ass mean?
A: It's quite vulgar. I don't know if it's supposed to be literal or figurative. (@_@;)
I will assume it is being used figuratively, I searched it up and apparently this can be an odd mistranslation of a Romanian phrase meaning "you are guilty of doing something really bad or expect something really bad to happen and you’re extremely worried".
But other searches say that it is an uncommon variation of the insult, "[you act like you've got] a stick up your ass", as in "you are an extremely rigid and irritating person."
If it is literal, well......
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure because the usage of this phrase can be odd sometimes so it would need more of the original context.
Q: What does 'carrot sticks cut crosswise' mean?
A: "Crosswise" means "across the longest side." Carrots cut crosswise would be shaped like circles. "Lengthwise" is the opposite. It means "along the longest side." Carrots cut lengthwise would be long strips.
