Hey, nice pyge.

I thought I'd share today's A Word A Day entry. You never know when you're gonna need a word like this.

Wordsmith.Org : The magic of words
A Word A Day with Anu Garg

callipygian
PRONUNCIATION: (kal-uh-PIJ-ee-uhn)

MEANING:
adjective: Having well-shaped buttocks.

ETYMOLOGY:
From Greek calli- (beautiful) + pyge (buttocks).

Yes, I thought so. I'm sure there's a bodice-ripper novel somewhere with a main character called Callipygia.

Or, you know, Callipygius.

Well realistically, any discussion of nice asses would be an appropriate place for a Mal icon.
