Default [Dixonary] Round 3143 SYSSITIA Results

I was faced with a dilemma when Johnny Barrs submitted a def very similar
to the real one, meals eaten together in public, so I combined them. Two
people voted for that def. The winner isJudy Madnick, with an unnatural 6
for her trailing purple plant, closely followed by the real winner Paul
Keating who got an unnatural 5 - Paul voted for his own def, but I haven't
counted that.

So it's over to you, Judy.
