The obscure word of the week is callipygian

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThere are over a million individual words in English. Most of them are quite obscure and deserve better attention than they get. This week’s is callipygian.

It’s a borrow word from Greek and means ‘possessing shapely buttocks’. No really.

Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.
