Default [Dixonary] Rd. 2988: ANTA results

Hi all,

I am thankful for a relatively drama-less round. I'm not sure Efrem
Mallach will be thankful for his runaway win, an unnatural 7 for his eave
decorations. Runners up, with 4 unnatural, were Johnny Barrs and his
mushroom and Dave Cunningham and his theater entrance. Chris Carson earned
4 natural for his ridge and so it the real winner.

The first three all voted for the real def, the architectural pier, below.
The As point to the antas.

away, Efrem!
