Default [Dixonary] Round 3141: KRIMMER Results

As most of you guessed, the etymology of *krimmer* derives from Crimea.
However, twice as many of you guessed at Paul Keating's fur-lined hat (#1)

a D3 and Paul with 6 points and the deal. He may or may not enjoy a Basque
IPA with his newfound responsibilities.
