prefrontal Spitzer lobe

noun phrase. The neurotallywhacker, buried deep in the brain's pants.

Real citation: "Apparently my brain—or the part of it I now refer to as my prefrontal Spitzer lobe—finds the sight of Edie Falco somewhat exciting."
(Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic, July 2008, "My Amygdala, My Self,"

Made-up citation: "The surgeon gently caressed my prefrontal Spitzer lobe with her provocatively shaped former-husband-brain-eating fork. The rest is magic. And a big boo-boo."
