    Scrimshaw is the name given to handiwork created by whalers made from the byproducts of harvesting marine mammals. It is most commonly made out of the bones and teeth of sperm whales, the baleen of other whales, and the tusks of walruses. It takes the form of elaborate engravings in the form of pictures and lettering on the surface of the bone or tooth, with the engraving highlighted using a pigment, or, less often, small sculptures made from the same material. However the latter really fall into the categories of ivory carving, for all carved teeth and tusks, or bone carving. -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrimshaw

    Scrimshaw - sounds like a lil town in Tennesee..

    or maybe something you'd find spilled on the  floor 
    "Look out  dont step in the scrimshaw there..."
    or maybe something on a chinesse menu-
    "Scrimshaw with lobster sauce"  - "Scrimshawwith rice"
