Belly Button
 n.— «But the most significant, and bizarre, could turn out to be “Belly Button.” That improbable monicker was the name for a Swiss bank account containing $200,000 in Iran-arms profits that were set aside for the former National Security Council aide and his family.…The name Belly Button, Hakim said, was the result of a joke about North. He did not elaborate.» —“A Big Bonus for ‘Belly Button’” by Jacob V. Lamar Jr. Time June 15, 1987. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
