With the little I thought I might guess, I was completely off track. Wacko

"stea" -> steady - stabil or something
to = to
"pygic" -> something in the direction of "pygmy"

There I got lost and checked the answer.
Completely wrong, but very enjoyable game...LOL

Maybe not Mariethe - they look like doughnuts (donuts) and believe it or not a special medical cushion, called a doughnut (donut) cushion, is well, used for the the same area of the body affected by steatopygia
 
so the thread is now back on track

LOLNow, Jayho, you ´ve done it! I can ´t shut my mouth! I am stuck ! What do you call this medical problem in English when you ´ve been laughing so much and you can ´t close your mouth? And most of all you can ´t try those beautiful doughnuts whose recipe I would very much like for my next English private lesson? Thanks for your quick and unequalled answer!Wink

... well Mariethe, then your problem is solved.  Recent research has proven that laughing burns calories, so, if one is laughing that much then it will reduce one´s steatopygia and then one can eat those scrumptious doughnuts
 
See, you can have your cake and eat it too and that´s a whole heap better than a virtual icecream

I must admit, when i posted the word earlier I thought, Jeez I ´m going to get slaughtered, but then I thought No! Men also get fat behinds. My cousin Joe is so fat that when he goes to the Gap the only thing he can fit  into is the changing room.
The answer is of course : Having a fat behind
Thank you all for making this such a fun post. I ´m going to scoot off now and have me some of those delicious looking doghnuts.
 
Oh! I almost forgot.... Virtual ice cream all around....
 
 
 
 
 
and a baked alaska for those who like their ice cream hot...
 
 another word tomorrow!
