I'm just waiting for him up north with the penchant for long distance running to say he's had that.

I've just realised, that sentence is an anagram of pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

What were the chances?

pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis

This is a noun used by the Sentinelese people who live on North Sentinel Island. They are very reclusive and avoid all contact with civilisation. The word is used to describe prepared meals ............. so, for example, it could be applies to a full English or an Indian Take Away the latter being the more likely as the Island sits in the Bay of Bengal.

How do we know what this word means? Well it is true that, because of their complete isolation, nearly nothing is known about the Sentinelese language, however, bottles have been found floating in the sea with the word recorded on materials sealed inside. It is thought that these are attempts to order meals which offer some diversity to the people's usual, limited diet.
