Would you care for an abracock?

That's not nearly as dirty as it sounds. According to the OED, abracock is an obsolete spelling of apricot. I saw it when I looked up 'abracadabra', which in case you care is:

"A cabalistic word, formerly used as a charm, and believed to have the power, when written in a triangular arrangement, and worn round the neck, to cure agues, etc. Now often used in the general sense of a spell, or pretended conjuring word; a meaningless word of mysterious sound; jargon, gibberish. "

Aren't you glad you stopped by?
