 FROBNITZ, pl. FROBNITZEM (frob'nitsm) n. An unspecified physical
       object, a widget. Also refers to electronic black boxes. This rare
       form is usually abbreviated to FROTZ, or more commonly to FROB. Also
       used are FROBNULE, FROBULE, and FROBNODULE. Starting perhaps in 1979,
       FROBBOZ (fruh-bahz'), pl. FROBBOTZIM, has also become very popular,
       largely due to its exposure via the Adventure spin-off called Zork
       (Dungeon). These can also be applied to non-physical objects, such as
       data structures.
