Steatopygia

After defining logomancy, I felt like relating a word I learned during December: steatopygia. Those of you who know me well know that callipygian means "nice ass" as typified by this photo. Well, pyg is the Greek root for "butt" and steat is the Greek root for "fat," so steatopygia means "fat ass" as typified in this photo. (You really have to see that photo to believe it).

Of course with our Greek root words we can construct the word: steatopygiaphile. Rather than defining this word, I'll just link to the world's foremost steatopygiaphile.
