    DavidI love learning new words. Especially new words that make me giggle and are totally unnecessary, like this month’s micro fiction challenge word, callipygian.

    Callipygian comes from Ancient Greek: “kalli,” meaning beautiful, and “pugḗ,” meaning buttocks.

    That’s right, gang. We have a word in the English language to define beautiful buttocks. Because why say “He/she/it has beautiful buttocks” when you can say “He/she/it is callipygian.”

    (Seems an appropriate choice, coming just a few short weeks after we took a (too-) deep look at break of poop.)

    Accepted alternative: callipygous, which you’re free to use instead for this challenge.

    The challenge being: Write a short story, in twenty-five words or fewer, that includes callipygian/callipygous.

    Be funny, be creative, be bold. Make us laugh, make us cry. Make us do both, if you can.

    Leave your micro fiction in the comments section below. Use a pseudonym if you’re shy. Click “Notify” to follow the competition. Enter as many times as you’d like.

    And there’s a prize! We still have a whole heap of books to give away, so the winner of this game gets to choose two titles from our list.

    So settle into that callipygous indent in your chair and get writing!

    I don’t have a story yet, but two things:

    1) First!

    2) I note that you use a statue of David, David, to represent callipygianess. Well-done.

    Diplomacy

    They sent a callipygian emissary to diffuse the situation. It was not a success. Discussions were characterized by distraction, thus little was accomplished.

    Bananas are usually eaten without cooking them. Callipygian. However, some people like eating them cooked.

    When the girl was leaning over a wall to throw up, a drunk guy called her callipygous and left. She was confused.

    Callipygians for you.

    The cake broke in two halves when a woman jumped out of it. The man had just one though: She is really callipygian.

    Nana

    I’m staring at the female. Her big, red buttocks. She’s really callipygian. I’m staring without shame.
    Next to me a sign reads: The Wildzoo – Baboons

    “You are *really* callipygian,” he said.
    “What?’ she said. “Call a pigeon?”
    “Coo,” he said.
    “Coo coo,” she said.
    “One o’clock,” he said.
