The Nip - The nickname of Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) on the sitcom SEINFELD/NBC/1990-98.

Once Elaine wanted to send a Christmas card with her photograph on it and so she got her friend, Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards) to take a snapshot.

Unfortunately, Elaine (and Kramer) didn't realize her blouse was not fully buttoned and that her breast nipple was exposed to the camera lens.

When Elaine first saw the mistake, she cried "Oh my God, that's my Nipple!"

For this little photo faux pas, she was nicknamed "The Nip" by her coworkers at Pendant Publishing. Elaine later cropped the nipple part off the photograph and used it for her health club ID.

TRIVIA NOTE: On the episode "The One with the Boobies" on the sitcom FRIENDS/NBC/1994-2004 Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) accidentally viewed Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston) breasts when she left the shower. As a "tit" for "tat" compromise, his friends recommended that he show Rachel his pee-pee. Chandler responded, "Well, I'm not showing you my tat."
