Every so often, we encounter a word we've never seen before. Today, we thought we saw "punctuate" on the home page of The New York Times. Our eyes deceived us. It was "puncicate."
Puncicate: An Italian slang term for buttock stabbing – usually associated
with soccer fans in Rome.
Thank you, Schott's Vocabulary. We'd say this vocabulary enhancement is a real shot in the arm, but, well, that might be missing the point.
