We love the words that everyone loves, like defenestrate, callipygous (#2 Is that the one about having a beautiful butt? ‘Cuz whatever that word is, my sister loves it. Even though she isn’t and doesn’t. #1 I don’t know about beautiful, but definitely shapely. Having shapely buttocks. #2 It’s ironic because she has no butt at all. It’s just flatness.
