this too shall pass
I'm sure most of you remember the dustup we had over the (non)word 'zzxjoanw'. well here's another one to entertain you: jitqazzizx (jit-kaz'-iks), ostensibly a Maltese word meaning "he does not mind; he does not feel any revulsion." this gets one(1) google hit for a glossary that uses Mrs. Byrne as a resource. Do I mind that Mrs. B sticks these extremely eldritch words in her book and calls them English? Jitqazzizx!
