Pannus

As I have stated in previous posts, the pannus is the part of your stomach that, if you are fat, hangs over. This is also known as an apron.

i've always heard it referred to as a "dunlap" (as in, "it dun lap over").

The correct medical term, I believe, is "panniculus," as used here. "Pannus" is to "panniculus" as "peppercini" is to "pepperoncini": if you can't pronounce it right, shorten it.

Personally, I call mine:
"Panninni Breadus Basketiculus"
