A medieval torture device which consisted of a two-sided fork
which would be strapped to the victims neck so that any movement of the jaw caused extreme pain.
The victim was then forced to say the word "abiuro" which is latin for "I recant" or else they were hung or burned at the stake.
This device qualifies as a funkatron

Bill: "STFU or Im gonna tell the pope
and he will strap a Heretic's Fork to your neck!"
