In Lord of The Flies, the author refers to the "twister."  This was described as a log that the littleuns sat on during meetings.  The log was uneven and the boys had not thought to wedge it so that it didn't move.  It never failed that during the meetings someone would sit down, lean back too far and the log would "twist" and throw the boys off backwards and sideways.
