Oh, what a lovely collection of links and words.

I have always loved the word "callipygian". But I am fascinated with some examples from your bonus list, too. Karezza. Molrowing. Sevidical (BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!). Yantra. Wow. I DO love words.

Lubency also has promise! ;) And I think I spent five hours looking at words today; the Internet is not only for porn!

Well, okay, it is because all that counts as word!porn. *snorts*

P.S. If you've got stuff to do, stay away from The Phrontistery!

The Phrontistery is without doubt one of the most famous black holes for word-lovers...it swallows you up and spits you out hours or days later. Talk about procrastination...

I think Xenagogue is such a fabu word. It sounds evil, but it's so pedestrian.

That 'Hamlet Was Nuts' link is the best.
