Baby Got Back.

Callipygian: adjective meaning having a shapely buttocks. Here’s the pronunciation.

Arguably, this is the best vocabulary word I’ve come across to date. Seriously, can you imagine Greek dudes from the 1800s cat-calling ladies on the street with such fancy prose?

Clearly, it was Sir Mix-a-Lot’s loss that he didn’t know this word. I hereby propose a change to Baby Got Back:

Ooh, Rump-o’-smooth-skin

Girl, them curves are callipygian.

Happy Friday – this should get you pumped for the weekend:
