I think that it is an oblique spheroid. And No, I didn't Google it.

I was commenting about the world not being perfectly round, Kenee.

Money may make the world go round, but I’ll happily put up with the shape it’s in if I could pocket a million. Who am I to criticise Mother Nature?

I'm sure you're not oblate Jo anne.

The oblateness is because of the earth's rotation. A point on the equator is spinning at over 1000 mph.

It is an oblate spheroid. My error. As I said I hadn't Googled it and obviously got my oblate confused with my oblique. My apologies. I shall wear my dunces cap (yet again).
