Subject: RE: BS: How Many Spatulas Do YOU Own???
spatula (n.) Look up spatula at Dictionary.com
    1520s (from early 15c. as a type of medical instrument), from Latin spatula "broad piece, spatula," diminutive of spatha "broad, flat tool or weapon," from Greek spathe "broad flat blade (used by weavers)" (see spade (n.1)). Erroneous form spattular is attested from c. 1600.
