the seamless blend of calf into ankle. accomplished by inflammation, obesity, athleticism or a combinaiton of the three. the affected leg takes on the shape of a summer sausage with a human foot at the end. there is no defintion of the calf because it is obscured most often by fat which spills down over the ankle, hiding it, and causing a cankle to form.
im glad maggie doesn't have cankles anymore, although now im the only one left in the cankle support group
