The online Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Spike as the following:

Etymology: Middle English, probably from Old Norse spIk splinter & spIkr spike; akin to Middle Dutch spiker spike -- more at SPOKE

I think it has missed a definition. spike is also a damn good guy, and someone I consider a friend. It continues to lack to mention that today is spike's birthday!

Happy birthday spike, you hypodermic needle you.
