sardonica bone

noun. I think it's connected to the trenchant bone and the laconic bone.

Real citation: "3. 'My novel is x thousand words but it reads longer'. If you don't know why this is funny, need to sharpen your Sardonica bone."
(April 27, 2007, Miss Snark, the literary agent,

Made-up citation: "There's no treatment in the world that will repair a damaged sardonica bone, local doctors deadpanned."
