what you may call it


what you may call it
   any taboo object
   The lavatory for many females, or a part of the body associated with sex or urination.
   Often shortened to whatsit, less often to whatzis:
    The whatsit is through there if you want it. (B. Forbes, 1983 — a woman was indicating where the lavatory lay)
    ... you'll probably use it to shoot off your whatzis. (Sanders, 1982 — it was a handgun)
