Jentacular Confabulations

Many thanks to my friend Seth for the word JENTACULAR, which was new to me. Here is the entry from the OED

Obs.

[f. L. jent{amac}cul-um breakfast (f. jent{amac}re to breakfast) + -AR.]

Of or belonging to breakfast.

1721 AMHERST Terræ Fil. App. 318 Nothing more..can be expected from those jentacular confabulations. 1811 A. KNOX in Corr. w. Jebb (1834) II. 44, I therefore wish to close at this ante-jentacular hour.
