It's English and it means a cigarette for which they use meticulously shredded larch wood in stead of tobacco.

It might could still be a hogwash word. It has a onelook index of zero.

first saw it in a cartoon of Moses parting the Red Sea. Faglork was the Sea talking? responding? burping? don't get why this is supposed to be funny. Thanks for all the posts.

from the Don Martin (MAD magazine artist) Dictionary:

RUMBLE ROR FAGLORK SWOOSH Moses Parts the Red Sea MAD #186, Oct 1976, Page 16

dem other words is big water noises; faglork must be the command Moses gave to part dose waters. huh.
