A glorkum is the name that NetHack gives to a glitched item which has an unknown category.

The item name will be called "glorkum" followed by three integers (the object class, type, and charges/enchantment/special flags), which are useful for debugging purposes.

During normal gameplay NetHack will never generate such items, so the presence of a glorkum (or any mention of a glorkum in gameplay messages) indicates a software bug. Interacting with a glorkum item can lead to panics.

In code, the name "glorkum" comes from the function xname().

You drop a glorkum 1 0 0.
