Default [Dixonary] Vote in Round 2989 (FLIFFIS)


Twelve definitions of FLIFFIS follow. They have been edited (very slightly) for format consistency and are in order by character count, which might not correspond to visual length in your email display font.

One of these definitions is, believe it or not, correct. The others are the products of your collective minds. Please vote for two that you like for any reason (such as, but not necessarily, thinking that they might be correct) by public Reply to this message before the deadline that follows the list. If, on seeing the definitions, you realize that you know what FLIFFIS means, please notify me by private email to emallach <at> verizon <dot> net.

2. grit, dust, or other fine debris.

3. strands of hair found on some legumes.

4. a coarse woolen fabric, yarn, or ribbon binding.

5. a woolly long-tailed nocturnal lemur (bush baby).

and other times in other places. Please check any time conversion that applies to you. That site is good, but nobody's perfect.
