Sweeps on in its heedless flight
Where the street's black funnel pours its tide
Out into the deepening night.

That we waited one night till the tide was right
And the funnels was right for a blow.

With shot-'oles in 'er funnel which were not there before;
Yes, she's 'ome, dearie, 'ome, an' we're 'alf the sea inside!
Ought to 'ave sunk, but couldn't if she tried!
"The Ballad Of The Resurrection Packet" by Cicely Fox Smith
'Er funnel's like a chimley, 'er sides is like a tub,
An' pay is middlin' scanty, an' likewise so is grub;
She's 'ard to beat for steerin' bad, she's 'ard to beat for grime,
An' rollin' is 'er 'obby — oh, she's rollin' all the time!
"The Ballad Of The Eastern Crown" by Cicely Fox Smith

But I prefers the paddles an' a funnel set well aft.

As blushin' red— in other words, a funnel same as mine!
"Song Of A Tug" by John Joy Bell
She wasn't big, nor fine, nor fast—she had no fame at all,
Excep' her funnel, which was most surprisin' thin an' tall.
She never got a lick o' paint unless it was required
To keep her hull from rustin'— or, perhaps, from gettin' tired.
"Number One" by John Joy Bell

In science:

We begin with a complete surface M0 , and consider a conformal compactification of M0 , consisting of one circle for each funnel and a point for each cusp.
Isoscattering on surfaces
The strong magnetic fields (B ∼ 106 - 109 G) of white dwarfs and the superstrong magnetic fields (B ∼ 109 - 1012 G) of neutron stars may be capable of funneling the flow of accreting matter onto the magnetic polar caps of the compact ob ject (Lamb, Pethick, & Pines 1973).
On Validating an Astrophysical Simulation Code
In simulations of the accretion to the inclined rotator, we observed that the flow also establishes during the first several rotations, so that as presented in this paper simulations which lasted 5 − 12 rotations are valuable for understanding of 3D funnel flows.
Three-dimensional Simulations of Disk Accretion to an Inclined Dipole: I. Magnetospheric Flow at Different Theta
We observed that during the first two rotation periods, matter of the disk moved inward, but later it stopped at the magnetospheric radius rm ≈ 1 − 1.2 and went up/down out the disk plane, forming magnetospheric funnel flows.
Three-dimensional Simulations of Disk Accretion to an Inclined Dipole: I. Magnetospheric Flow at Different Theta
Here and in subsequent plots we show only the inner part of the simulation region, R ≤ 3, in order to resolve the funnel flow and the inner region of the disk.
