Default [Dixonary] Round 3262 ULPIC Results

I've got back earlier than expected from today's event, and all those who
submitted a def, plus three of those who didn't, have voted, so I'm closing
the round early. First and last was a popular voting choice this time, and
that not only zeroed in on the real def - the kind of leek - but also
awarded Shani a magnificent 8 votes for her Icelandic fermented shark.
Shani takes the next deal, leaving Paul Keating as the relieved runner-up
with an unnatural 5, and me with a D5.

Over to you, Shani.
