Slang term for methane when used as a fuel source. Spotted
on an online discussion board about alternative energy
sources. [Note:  Obviously a stunt word, and one I've heard
used only in this forum.  Included here for comic relief.]


"Stunt word"! Perspicuous and concise. Have I just not run
into this expression ("stunt word") before?
