Whoops

I totally spaced this yesterday and I'm so very sorry.

Liripoop - The tail of a graduate's hood (an old feature of academic dress). The liripoop hung down the back when the hood was off, and it was wrapped like a bandage around the head when the hood was on. The liripoop is both intimidating to others and uncomfortable for the wearer.

I don't know what you would do with this word except possibly tuck it away from trivia night...
