What it should be named...

What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

Thankfully the above object is called the "codpiece" although it doesn't look anything vaguely like a cod and there do not seem to be other missing pieces. :D

A cod.

I therefore challenge the members of the forum to invent another, more descriptive word for this object and then use it in the following sentences without been immediately banned by Pyrrho. :D

"Darling my XXXXXX is a bit rusty. Could you polish it for me?"

"I have a very small XXXXXX so it doesn't get in the way during battle"

"I tripped over behind my horse and my XXXXXXX got stuck in the horse's....."

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=codpiece

codpiece (n.)
mid-15c., "a bagged appendage to the front of the breeches; often conspicuous" [OED], from Old English codd "a bag, pouch, husk," in Middle English, "testicles" (cognate with Old Norse koddi "pillow, scrotum") + piece (n.).

I find it mildly interesting that the Old Norse had a word that meant both pillow and scrotum. Those Old Norse were some whacky doodles.

I like Gord. Two days ago I didn't know "Cod" also evolved from an old Norse word. Now I do. :D

But not exactly. It's cognate with it. That means they came from the same root.

Wiktionary has this to say: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cod#English

From Middle English cod, codde, from Old English cod, codd (“bag, pouch”), from Proto-Germanic *kuddô, from Proto-Indo-European *gewt- (“pouch, sack”), from *gew-, *gū- (“to bend, bow, arch, vault, curve”). Cognate with Scots cod, codd, coad, kod (“pillow, cushion”), Low German Koden, Kon (“belly, paunch”), Dutch kodde (“scrotum”), Danish kodde (“testicle”), Swedish kudde (“cushion”), Faroese koddi (“pillow”), Icelandic koddi (“pillow”).
