    Over here, it's called Bischof (bishop) or Bischofsmütze (bishop's hat).
    It means the ass of a chicken which looks exactly like a bishop with his
    hat.

    The tail, the triangular thingy on the turkey's rear,
    not a "flap of skin." If the bird is carefully cooked
    it becomes very crunchy and great with fat; really
    delicious. People have died fighting over it, and
    they exist on all the birds: cornish hen, chickies,
    duck, goose and of course turkey, best of them all.

    Yes, I know but wasn't really thinking when I wrote that! Not my cup
    of tea tho- I'd rather have the first slice of white meat with a
    little skin attached. It won't be too long now until we have the
    obligatory turkey feast!

    It's the term I grew up with. I've since heard a lot of others. It's
    the bird's tail actually. It even has little pieces of backbone in it.

    Religious terms seem common for that part; it was "Parson's Nose" in my
    family but you can keep it :-)

    Yep. My grandfather used it and passed the expression on down the
    family. We come from a long line of people who left The Church. His
    grandfather had been a priest.

    I don't call it anything except one more part for the broth/stock made from
    chickens or turkeys.

    I call them butts. They are great either deep fried, smoked, or
    roasted with the rest of the bird. Had some just recently:

    right of plate)

    Soon they should be selling packages of just turkey butts. They're
    also good teryaki marinated then grilled.

    IMO, they are disgusting, nasty little fat bombs. You're welcome to
    any and all Pope's Noses I will ever have.
