runcible...

in other words....a Spork....

runcible
1871, a nonsense word coined by Edward Lear; used especially inruncible spoon "spoon with three short tines like a fork," which first took the name 1926.

We like to do our own word search. Found this word in a poem. Via a blog....of course!

  1. I am amused. I could swear I saw a similarly-spelled word, perhaps a homonym, used as the name of a "deep space" communication device in one of the space operas I used to read.
