excellent! Can't hope to beat that but here goes:


The nickname of the, now famous, italian fan of cheesy 70's american country rock band Poco
She got her 15min of fame by sending polaroids of herself covered in carbonara sauce to lead singer Richie Furay. Richie however, was a big fan of Italian cuisine and fell madly in love with her... they've been making sweet meatballs ever since.

pococurante a small accumulation found in a bedchamber from which dust is derived.
