...well, what do you think it means?
I suppose it could mean someone who fur-fur-fumbles with their words.

I'll give you a clue: the blizzard here yesterday brought the word to mind.
Yep. That's right. Furfuraceous means resembling dandruff.
Hm. Come to think of it, that's a resemblance our greatest poets, oddly, seem to have missed...
The word furfur means dandruff or any scaly bit of skin.
And how on earth have we lived without it?
Word To Use Today: furfuraceous. This word comes from the Latin furfur, which means bran or scurf.
