That's why the world-renowned expert on buttocks, Sir Mix-A-Lot, has Cosmopygian (instead of Cosmopolitan) in his "Baby Got Back" thesis.

"My preference is for callipygian plenitude; prevarication is not possible. Mine brethren, it would be disingenuous for you to renounce the allegation that upon the entrance of a Nubian goddess with a diminuitive midsection, who then proceeds to present her copious orbs, your netherregions become tumescent."

Hm. Sir Mix-a-Lot's version scans better. :D

Or, as my then-six-year-old daughter rapped it: "when a girl walks in with a itty-bitty waist and you walk around and your face gets shrugged."

I never could figure that one out.

I once got several boxes of chocolate for that word.

A local radio show was giving away chocolate if you were the nth caller who could define their word of the day. The DJ said the word of the day was "sesquipaladian." I didn't care about being the nth caller, but I had to call to tell him he'd mispronounced it. :) He even argued with me! I said, "It has to be 'sesquipedalian' because it literally means 'a foot and a half long.'"

I think I was 14 or so.

I love this word, having learned it in my late teens after reading a particular buttocks-centric Penthouse Forum letter.

Wow, someone was aching for metaphors in his letter to Penthouse. Ha!

And footnote 4 there uses "callipygy," so it all comes round together....

when I was in college and online dating was still pretty new I answered an ad that was looking for "a callipygian beauty".

I ended up dating that guy for over a year :)
