Default [Dixonary] Round 2840 PUCKFOISTED Results

I congratulate all of you for being able to make up fake defs for what I
thought was a difficult word. Efrem Mallach takes the next deal with 5
unnatural points for his sailor's opinion of an order. Shani Naylor, Tim
Bourne, and Ryan McGill tied in coveted second place with 3 points each.
Johnny Barrs knew or worked out the meaning of the word and declared
himself DQ.

Over to you, Efrem.
