Back in January or February the comic strip "Heart of the City" used the
word "stunod". The comic is set in Philadelphia. An Italian-American
neighborhood grandmother character rebuked a pair of mischievous
children, "Stunods!"

Is "stunod" actually used? And if so, what does it mean and what's it
from (besides "donuts" spelled backwards)?
