I won't go for the obvious teases, but instead swap an s for an a.

Well, I wanted to use PIGIRON but there seems to be general aggreement that it's two words, not one, so we'll have to find a Plan B:
POURING
change U to E
PERIGON
add another I
PEIGNOIR

...and now, we return to our regularly scheduled programming.
