Default [Dixonary] ROUND 3193 - COSHER - VOTE NOW!

a:link {color: #0000FF;} a:visited {color: #800080;} body { font-size: 12pt; font-family: Verdana; color: #000000; background-color: FFFFFF; margin-left: 10px; }



Here are 12 definitions for the word COSHER shared exactly as I received them — but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to the Dixonary group for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Friday, September 3, 2021, at 6 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.  http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition. 

 



Good luck!



 



Judy Madnick



 



@page {margin: 96px 96px 96px 96px;}body {font-family: 'Times New Roman'}p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, ul.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal{ margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-bottom: 1.0pt; margin-left:0cm;line-height:1.07; font-size:11.0pt; white-space: pre-wrap}

1. (Chem.) A white waxy or fatty substance obtained from castor oil.



 



2. (Cockney sl., poss. Yidd. der.) - A big eater, a freeloader; perhaps a conflation of Kosher and nosher.



 



3. A low ceiling support beam in a mine.



 



4. A piece of fabric removed from a garment to fit a narrow part of the body, such as the waist or ankle, more tightly.



 



5. a weighted cane that doubles as a weapon.



 



6. an attacker for hire [C19 London sl.]



 



7. Common street food originating during the mid-19th century which combines Italian and Middle Eastern culinary elements.



 



8. Gourd type vegetable, usually deep orange or red when ripe.



 



9. One who directs seine-fishing from high ground by the sea. Chiefly used in the Cornish pilchard fishery.



 



10 Small stones or gravel given to a hawk, usually to improve its digestion.



 



11. to live on dependents.



 



12. [Scot. Gaelic football slang] to pass the ball to yourself through an opponent's ankles [same as English slang "nutmeg" which may come from cockney rhyming slang for "leg" but more likely from the practice of deceiving importers by placing some wooden balls in sacks of nutmegs; from whence has come the reference to testicles, which gives an alternative meaning in football for a particularly nasty foul; this meaning is also included in the word "cosher" as used in Scotland].

I read them all: 11 and 12 please.

11. to live on dependents.

12. [Scot. Gaelic football slang] to pass the ball to yourself
through an opponent's ankles [same as English slang "nutmeg" which may come
from cockney rhyming slang for "leg" but more likely from the practice of
deceiving importers by placing some wooden balls in sacks of nutmegs; from
whence has come the reference to testicles, which gives an alternative
meaning in football for a particularly nasty foul; this meaning is also

Default RE: [Dixonary] ROUND 3193 - COSHER - VOTE NOW!

Judy – As usual, none are especially convincing. 5 and 6 are a little too obvious, so I discount them. Out of desperation, I’ll vote for 3 and 9.

Best,

Alan
