I believe pipik is Yiddish for navel, although I'm not sure about the
spelling.

Extra Credit Question:

A few of us were discussing the meaning of "Pippic" (which could
be spelled "Pippik, Pipik, Peppic" or some other variation). The
quote, which was attributed to FDR, was "He was up to his
pippics in snow." (One of us thinks it means "collar". Another thinks it
means,
"testicles.").

The word is not in the the American Heritage dictionary. And I haven't
been able to find a definition online, which was my original challenge from
a coworker. I'm admitting to defeat. What are your guesses?
