Is this a rerun? I have definitely seen this in a blog before. Just can't remember where or when.

Not here, anyway.

I work for a business-tech publication, and one of the writers there used it in a blog post this week. I had to look it up to make sure it was spelled correctly and it stuck in my head.

Ah, I'm not crazy. It was Sullivan.

How on earth did you find it again??

I saw it in the blog post here the other day. I had to look it up. I knew (roughly) what it meant, but I had no clue if spelling was right.

It's now my second-favorite word, after kerfuffle.

Original title of that famous Foghat song....

changed at the last minute in the studio when they figured out nobody would get it....

I'm older than ya'll. I remember it from my misspent youth, in my own defense from an old type person. I think it was actually spoken and written in the first half of the last century.
