Default [Dixonary] Round 3702 results

Google tells us that OG can stand for “original gangster” or the Biblical
king of Bashan, but I have used the more ordinary meaning, “a shilling”,
which the OED says is “chiefly *Australian* and *New Zealand* *slang* (
*disused* and *historical*)”. I had never heard of it before spotting it
online.

Top place goes back to Paul K (7 unnatural points) with his young def, and
the Tims share the coveted real winner position.

Take it away Paul!

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].
Paul K, who voted *1* & 3. Score: *7*
Votes from Tim L, Mike S, Ann D, Johnny B & Efrem M 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".
Johnny B, who voted 10 & 11. Score: 2
Votes from Tim B & Dan W.
