callipygian

cal·li·pyg·ian - ka-l&-'pi-j(E-)&n
Variant(s): or cal·li·py·gous /-'pI-g&s/
adjective. Etymology: Greek kallipygos, from kalli- + pygE buttocks

I heard a friend use this word and I went through all the Ca entries because I didn't know how to spell it. Then quite soon after, I heard it in a song, "Fanny" by the Asylum Street Spankers. Can also been said as callipygious, I believe.
