Word of the Week: Machicolation

MACHICOLATION

Does this have something to do with chewing?  Because I swear it was not me eating those Luigi Apple Sours.

“Wow, how did you find those?  I just bought it last night.  It’s not Luigi, but a 1up mushroom from Mario Brothers.”

Pardon me, I stand corrected.  Human, why are you just sitting there with that ridiculous grin on your face?

“I’m savouring the moment, you admitted you were wrong.  Ahh, it’s going to be a good day.  Machicolation is the gap between supports on a castle parapet, it’s where those defending the castle would throw objects down below to the invaders.”

Oh, and I always thought it was a Feng Shui thing.
