Word of the day…………




When food (a snack) is consumed in an accidental, often regrettable way. This can refer to accidentally eating food of a questionable quality and/or quantity. For example when someone consumes an entire packet of biscuits when they intended to eat only a few.

But on further investigation I discovered it’s a word in the Urban Dictionary and dates back to 2007 where it was first entered on 16th May.

These may also contribute to a severe case of goutbreak, fattening the curve, coronaspeck or corona bacon.
