ordure

(noun)

excrement; dung.

word’s encounter: a Matt Price article from The Australian (interesting aside: typing ordure and price into Google brings up the aforementioned article as the first result, which is something I think the dearly-departed Matt Price would have found great humour in).

word’s use: ordure would perform a euphemistic role as a stand in for shit so well, that before reading Matt Price’s article, its utterance would have left me none the wiser.
