"Egotestical" - I like that. And if you had an egotestical man waving his hands aggressvely in the air to emphasise what he was saying, he'd be testiculating.

Here's today's obituary from the Guardian.

Note this sentence to put it in context, and remind people of the world in which Lomax worked, and the way things were then: "In 1935, in search of music from the Georgia Sea Islands, near Florida, he darkened his skin with walnut juice to avoid the attentions of local racists." That took guts.
