Awesome Obsolete Word of the Day: Callipygian

Language evolves as time passes, and part of this process includes the addition of new words and the removal of others, sometimes to make room for new words, and sometimes because it just isn’t popular to use these words anymore for whatever reason. Every once in a while, this process causes a truly awesome word fades into antiquity, and in this information age, I feel it is our responsibility to bring some of these now-obsolete words back. Like today’s word, “callipygian,” which is hands down one of the most awesome words I have come across so far. Honestly, can you think of a better way to describe someone’s rear, dear reader?  I sure can’t.

    • Your wife is officially awesome in my book. She can upgrade to epic if she uses callipygian in conversations in public settings and/or in conversations with strangers.
