French term or phrase:l\'ou virou
Regional expression from France, between Cote d'or and Dijon.
Le couteau tourne autour de "l'ou virou" (articulation du femur dans l'os du sacrum). (from an essay on butchering pigs)
Explanation: ... An equivalent from the Appalachians, say, or from deepest, darkest Derbyshire, something quaint from north of the border, or something with a lilt from the Emerald Isle? Whatever, you're asking a bit much, I think. Leave it in French. You have the explanation in parentheses, and that's what matters.
