Default [Dixonary] Rnd 2869 ZABERNISM - Def up - Vote

On this Superbowl night (night to me) here are 11 definitions - sorted
more-or-less by length - to distract you from the half-time show - or
the game, whichever is the most boring; or maybe during a add break -
whatever ..

It is only 11 defs but to make up for that here are a fair number of
words. Find some time to vote for TWO definitions, as a public forum or
group message (in reply to this one), before the deadline..
