If Newfoundland had given the world nothing else, then it must be forever covered in glory and garlanded with laurels and gratitude for having dragged up from who-knows-where the word scruncheon.
Which is obviously too gorgeous a word not to use on every possible occasion.
Isn't it satisfying?
A scruncheon is a small crisp piece of fried pork fat, and I admit this means it isn't going to be easy to ease the word into ordinary conversation, but, hey...it'll make the world a better place if we can, won't it.
The sun was so hot I practically got fried to a scruncheon.
The snow the dogs had weed on was exactly the colour of fine scruncheons.
On your fork.
Okay, I'm getting a bit desperate, here.
Scruncheons with fish and brewis.
It's just lovely, isn't it.
Word To Use Today: scruncheon. This word comes from Newfoundland, but otherwise it is a mystery.
