The Daily Post: “Mad Scientist, Boo”

Today’s Daily Post asks for a definition and usage:

Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post. 

If you are a Bugs Bunny fan, you may recall the fabulous episode “Water Water Every Hare.” If not, you have missed it and must go watch immediately. Go on; I’ll wait: c’mon back when you are finished.

There. Wasn’t that great? Anyhow, did you notice that the title of my post here matches the marquee on the castle? Clever, I know. The reason is because I needed the mad scientist to help me define this word. In fact, I called upon him to show me a flangiprop. Here it is:

Flangiprop. Well, not really. It's actually a solder mount or something, with a few miscellaneous bits that found their way onto the little shelf...

Definition of flangiprop:

/flangIpraup/

n. instrument used by lilliputian mad scientists to hold their victims in place during examination

E.g:

Dr. Zorba hated the fact that his flangiprop was older than the ones the other scientists had. He kept it oiled and used it quite regularly; it was fortunate that his laboratory was in one of the busiest gnome shopping malls in town. He set up shop in an unused security area he had discovered quite by accident and began experimenting on the night workers since it was relatively quiet at those hours and no one was around to hear their cries for help when he got them into the pincers. Eventually he was emboldened by the success of his intricate work and began snagging day workers  and shoppers as well. He hoped one day soon to have enough money from the sale of his biological diagrams and remedies to purchase a new flangiprop, one that had fewer manual parts and more technology, which would make it easier to examine larger specimens.
