Default [Dixonary] Round 3118 - FOTCH Results

This was a tidy round, presenting no pesky tie for the dealer. The real
definition was 2: fotch is simply a regional variation on fetch. Judy Madnick
was the only player to vote for it, giving her two points plus three for her
malintent, and consequently, the next deal. Efrem Mallach is the runner up and
real winner with 4 natural points. John Barrs was DQ, of course, but he also
knew of another intriguing, somewhat slangy definition of fotch that I was not
familiar with. I hope he will elaborate on that for us.

Take it away, Judy!
