Word Wednesday: Scurryfunge

On this weeks Word Wednesday, Kim has presented the word "Scurryfunge". She sourced it from a post by Maks Viktor Antiquarian Books, however both Cambridge and Websters dictionary doesn't recognize the word. We have taken the pending investigation definition from Collins Dictionary.


(commonly used in 19th-century England)

A hasty tidying of the house between the time you see the neighbour coming and the time they knock on the door.

(Collins Dictionary, Approval Status: Pending Investigation)

“I scurryfunge every time my mother-in-law announces she's popping round.”
