Entry: tektitic (adj.)

In context:  "The inappropriate found objects have had a tektitic and sinister aspect: none of the cheery odor of pranksterism; they're not funny.  To varying degrees they've given everyone the fantods."

Definition: Can't find tektitic, but tektite (n.): One of the small, roundish, glassy bodies of unknown origin that occur scattered over various parts of the earth.
