Is the past tense of "splinch", "splunch"? And, if not, why not?

That'd be a very good question for JK Rowling!

Meanwhile, I'm still angry that the British English past tense word for "sneak" is "sneaked". Seriously, just this one time PLEASE do what the Americans do and say "snuck"! It sounds so much funnier!

But in correct English, 'snuck' is the past tense of 'snick'.
