[Dixonary] Round 3702 time to vote!
 
Hi all

We have before us a dozen carefully (or not) crafted definitions for our
word OG. Please vote for two before the deadline.

1. A shilling.

2. Bland and mushy.

3. An island (fr. Gaelic).

4. One who quibbles over trivia.

5. [Austral. Aborig.] A dingo pup.

6. Odd-shaped rocks used as filler in stone walls.

7. A company of secret and irresponsible advisers, as of a king; a cabal or
clique.

8. The name of a castle featured in the motion picture, "Monty Python and
the Holy Grail."

9. Fictional country in the book “Edmund’s Astonishing Adventures in Og” by
L. Frank Baum.

10. In Irish folklore, a mythical land lying to the west of Ireland and now
submerged in the Atlantic Ocean.

11. *Ireland*. The younger: used after a person’s name to denote the
younger of two bearing the same name in a family, *esp*. a daughter of the
same name as her mother; informally, used alone as a nickname [Ir. *óg*
young].

12. OG was a king of Bashan who was of enormous stature - his bed was about
13 and a half feet long (nearly 3.5 metres) according to Deuteronomy 3:11.
The word OG then became used to define the "Original Giant" and has passed
into our language as kind of acronym with the meaning of "Original".

The deadline is 10am Sunday 7 November my time (NZDT) or:



Los Angeles, USA Saturday 6 November at 2pm

New York, USA Saturday 6 November at 5pm

London, United Kingdom Saturday 6 November at 9pm

Paris, France Saturday 6 November at
10pm


Happy voting!

Re: [Dixonary] Round 3702 time to vote!
 
I vote for 1 and 3. I considered 10, which could describe *T*r na nÓg
(*loosely,
'fairyland'), but I only have 2 votes.
