From Last Month's "GILBERT!" magazine.


I ran across this word recently: "Titivil". It refers to a devil that collects words mumbled or omitted in the recitation of the divine service and carries them back to Hell where they are held against the offender. Try using that effortlessly at a cocktail party, though you may be able to work it in by referring to its extension, "tattletale".
