Is it possible to fire off a defun by typing a specific
keyword? Sort of like the way abbrev works?

For example, I have a defun like this

(defun date ()
  (insert-shell-command "my_date") )

where "my_date" is a script to format output from

Now, my idea is to hook it to a keyword, say "thedate".

Again, it would work just as abbrev, only instead of a
table lookup and replace, it would trigger a defun.
