    So fitting for today. The Grumbletonians are obviously upset about the state of our Kakistocracy.

    Wonderful! Where are these from? I recognize at least a couple from Mrs. Byrne’s Dictionary of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words.

    Callipygian turns up in a song (ca. 1961) about Vikki Dougan, a model and actress who became famous for wearing gowns that were extremely low-cut in back. The Limeliters sang, “Vikki, turn your back on me,” and praised her “callipygian cleft.”

    the only people who use these words are blatherskites.

    Cacapygian is a good word, very descriptive.

    Steatopygian would be another excellent word and that is one you can use every day

    Callipygian (callypigos) is actually a greek word: cally=good and pigos = butt. Same goes for cacoethes caco-ethes = bad ethics- morals.

    We live with a kakistocracy led by a ultracrepidarian snollygoster who spends as much time every day fudgelling as he can while his closest followers of grufeling in the flag grumbletonians perendinate the day away.
