Default [Dixonary] Round 2936 - FLOB Results

A few players from the UK may be familiar with flob as a synonym for spit, but
the meaning here seems to have an American origin. Only John Barrs guessed it.
The scores range from 0 to 5 with a mode of 3. Mike Shefler's clumsy person
definition--a noun rather than a verb--pulled in 5 natural points, and gives
him the deal.

Take it away, Mike!
