Default [Dixonary] Round 2838 And the winner is.....

Our new dealer is Keith H who scored 5 points with his ancient knot. In
second place, with 4 points, was Efrem M.

A mountweazel is named for *Lillian Virginia Mountweazel* (1942–1973), a
fountain designer and photographer who appeared in the 1975 New Columbia
Encyclopedia. Supposedly, she was born in Bangs, Ohio, and died in an
explosion while on assignment for Combustibles magazine. There was only one
problem - she never existed. The entry was put in the encyclopedia to
detect plagarism (if it was used elsewhere).

Take it away Keith!
