Default [Dixonary] Round 2861 results!

Hi all

According to the OED, gofe is an old name for the pillory (that's a wooden
contraption that held people in a public place so rotten tomatoes could be
thrown at them). Tim Lodge and Dan Widdis were neck and neck in the voting,
but Tim pulled ahead at the end with 6 natural points for his def which
made a verb out of the movie industry slang term 'gofer'. Dan was the real
winner with 5 points with his indistinct image.

Take it away Tim!
