Using the same setting as this question: Is there an adjective that means 'fruit-like'? (the setting isn't paramount) I would like to know if there is an appropriately 'posh' word for 'stick-like'.
Is there a word for stick-like that could be uttered by an aristocratic gentleman of the 18th Century in a club such as Boodle's without sounding anachronous or ill-befitting of his class?
The only word I can find is sticky but it is too connected to the age-old joke:
What's brown and sticky? A stick! / Poo!
The use of adjective sticky also makes the word sticky useless. (Etymologically, they are connected)
Obligatory Example Sentence:
My dear fellow, let me question you thus: what is brown and [sticky]? A stick!
Obviously, this ruins the joke
Is there a suitable adjective like 'stick-like'?
