Not sure if this is uncommon or not, but as I've just used it in an email and suspect the non-native English speaker may not know what I'm on about, I thought I'd post it here:-
Fettle

After a few drinks on Friday, me and the girlfriend put our surnames into urban dictionary, to my joy mine came out as;

"a term used to describe one with great influence and great natural charisma"

hers (Penk) came out as;

"The fluff that get stuck inbetween keys on a keyboard"
