Default [Dixonary] ROUND 2995 - ABBOZZO - VOTE NOW!

Here are (lucky!) 13 definitions for the word ABBOZZO...but only one is correct. Please send your votes (by responding to the group) for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Thursday, July 4th, at 8 p.m.. As usual, I will let you determine the time in your time zone. I hope that the U.S. holiday doesn't create any problems.

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck!

1. a circus clown.
2. a cocktail made with a solid amount of absinthe and a champagne floater.
3. a porous volcanic rock much used in Southern Italy as a building foundation.
4. a preliminary sketch.
