Interesting Words In The Dictionary....

Ever look in the dictionary and see a word that either looks funny or wierd? Or maybe you never even thought it was actually a word? I remember seeing this word on episodes of Batman (1960s) during the fight scenes. KAPOK! :shock: :lol: It's actually the silky down that covers the seeds of a tropical tree, used for the stuffing pillows and life jackets. Hmmm, interesting. How about you? :)
