chocolate leg
 n.— «“There’s even something like a ‘dominant leg’! You automatically try to take off from that one if attempting to jump. Try. You’d be amazed. There’s a phrase for that in German: ‘Schokoladenbein.’” “Chocolate leg? I’m going to assume that something was lost in the translation here.”» —“Re: Left-orium” by John C. Usenet: rec.games.roguelike.adom Dec. 29, 2002. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
