Default [Dixonary] Round 3008 Results

I have the honor of passing the deal to Shani Naylor, whose taffy collected
two votes, and who was one of two players (along with Mr. Barrs) to guess
the wry-mouthed man or woman as the true definition, sourced from the 1811
Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue (Grouse).

Runners up with 3 votes apiece were Mike Shefler's wicked imp and Tony
Abell's kind of clamp.

The winner of round 3008 is Shani Naylor, whose definition "A type of salt
water taffy known for being extremely hard and chewy." received 2 votes,
plus 2 points for guessing the correct def.

There were 2 players in coveted second place with 3 points each: Tony Abell
and Mike Shefler.

The true definition was 6: "A wry-mouthed man or woman." (The 1811
Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue), which 2 perceptive players guessed.

1. scissor-like implements used to remove fully-threaded bone screws during
