ANTIDISESTABLISHMENTARIANISM

Found that in Iggy Pop's "I need more" book as if he asked his schoolteacher about the longest word in English and she gave him THAT. Strange, he didn't ask the meaning of this word, looks like he understood it - a child of 6 or 7 years old. But is it 100% artificial as an example of something, or that abracadabra can really be used in some "natural" context? Well, the answer seems far beyond my Russian brain )
But anyway...

Wow! I heard about a famous song from Mary Poppins "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" (I mean that it is one of the longest word)
