Words Thing: Fangle

Another word that, if it were a word, would have given me a handsome score in Words With Friends. Also one of those words which should be a word. As George Carlin said, the concept of chalance exists.


To fashion something,
but not in a pioneering, innovative or iconoclastic way.
A product engineer might fangle a kitchen mixer
with slightly better blades
or a razor that stays sharper a little longer.
The thing may be said to be fangled,
but certainly not newfangled.
