Word of the Week: Spondulicks

with one comment

“Get yourself another tasty helping, as long as you are in possession of the requisite spondulicks.” Salman Rushdie; The Ground Beneath Her Feet; Picador Books; 2000.

This word just came out yesterday at work, or rather it’s shorter form sponds did. I don’t think I’ve used the word in years but it seemed appropriate at the time. Of course one reason for not using it is a general shortage of spondulicks, hard to talk about what you don’t have.

Ok, if you’re really too lazy to go google yourself…. it’s a (popular?) British slang for money, cash, moola, etc…
