Default [Dixonary] Round 3006 PULLIKINS Results

I decided to run with this word despite receiving two DQs and three rather
similar defs (trousers/breeches/pantalooms) which couldn't easily be
combined. Shani Naylor is our new dealer with 4 votes for her petticoat
breeches, while Chris Carlson is the real winner with 3 votes for his
frantic or excited activity - a good description of your dealer right now!
Guerri Stevens was the only one to guess that PULLIKINS are instruments for
extracting teeth, while Johnny Barrs and Dan Widdis both recognised the
word and were DQ.

Over to you, Shani.
