  3. omg haha thats me and my friend’s favorite word too.. aha idk how we came to know of it, but once we knew there was actually a word for that.. well we had to make it our favorite. awesome comic!

  4. “Callipygous” and its antonym “steatopygous” are two “words of the day” that I teach my sophomores in college.

    In the comic strip, I would liked to have seen “definitely” spelled correctly. Even my eight-year-old grandniece (second grade) can spell that word appropriately! (She knows the word does not have an “a” in it.)

  5. I KNOW I spelled definitely wrong, and being a bit of a spelling nazi myself, I would correct it right away. But this cartoon dates back 3,5 years and changing it now would feel like changing history. So I won’t.

  6. callipygous (adj) – pertaining to or having finely developed buttocks; “the quest for the callipygian ideal”

    That’s really funny. Good use of the dictionary in the online comic world.
