Default [Dixonary] ROUND 2906 - eellogofusciouhipoppokunurious - VOTE NOW!

Here are 14 definitions for the word eellogofusciouhipoppokunurious...but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to this email with what you believe are the two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Monday, July 9, at 8 p.m. As usual, I will let you determine the time in your time zone. :-)

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck!
