In the poem, "The Owl and the Pussycat", based on an Edward Lear poem, a runcible spoon is used to eat fruit. It is shaped much like what we now call a "spork".
"They dined on mince, and slices of quince, which they ate with a runcible spoon.

Runcible is a word coined by Edward Lear in the late 1800's. It doesn't mean anything, but it has a rough, crunchy sound so it can be used to describe anything bad. The verb form is "to runcibate."
"I had a runcible time at the dentist's." and, "Stop runcibating, you're driving me crazy."
