(Late) Friday word: solenoglyphous

Solenoglyphous, adj.: (Sol-e-NOG-li-fus), having fangs that fold into the mouth:

"Your solenglyphous fangs are spectaculah!
They are awesome (to use the vernaculah)
'Cause they fold up inside
Till you open up wide--
I asp-pire to be like you!"

Signed: Dracula

(from the Washington Post's Style Invitational contest in July 2016; the challenge was including one of the words from the list of words used in the 2016 National Spelling Bee in a funny poem)
