Default [Dixonary] Round 2875: CROOCHIE-PROOCHLES Results

If you’ve ever been stuck in the middle seat on an airplane, you’ve probably experienced croochie-proochles.* Six of you thought that discomfort from sitting in a cramped position deserved your vote, and definition 11 led the voting, leaving me with a D6. *Unfortunately, the Dictionary of the Scots Language can’t deal.



And so, the winner of round 2875 is Efrem Mallach, whose definition "[Yorks. dialect] goosebumps." received 4 votes, plus 2 points for guessing the correct def. **There were 4 players in coveted second place with 4 points each: John Barrs, Tim Bourne, Chris Carson and Tim Lodge.

*
