  • Obviously I've seen (and heard) this word many times, but never quite in its literal context:

    "'It was an exceedingly interesting experience, ma'am; we survived, thanks to an intelligent black, and we brought back an ass-load of specimens that will keep us busy for the next twelvemonth and more.'"
