    I’d only ever heard “callipygian,” which I think is way more common.

    Would’ve been funnier if you’d managed to spell “definitely” correctly…

    i felt kinda stupid when i had to look up the word…but knowing the definition made the comic SO much better. love it!

    He has a dictionary, but spells definitely wrong?

    “callipygous” it’s a perfectly cromulent word

  9. 9 Interesting...

    To the folks that are criticizing the spelling…

    Did any of you consider that it was misspelled on purpose?

    To ‘interesting’ – did you ever consider that the writer is not using his first language?

    “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.)

    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.

    well, callipygous is spelled right, so i wouldnt worry so much about “definately”

    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.
