Lara, who listens on KAZU from Escondido, CA, discovered that there really is a word for everything. Now, when she asks someone to pass the “aberuncator,” they respond, “the what?” and after a moment of doubt, how did I marry such a loser? she sighs, “the long-handled picker.”
Thank you Says You for telling me what my dad and I for years was calling a long-handled picker was really called aberuncators. Did not know we had one until we heard your definition. Can you repeat that round in your look back. Thanks, Lara
We’re sorry for the wasted years calling aberuncators “long-handled pickers.” You’re welcome, for a word nearly as long as its description. Keep an ear out for “aberuncator” in an upcoming spotlight round.
