Default [Dixonary] Round 3013 WOOFITS Results

Oh, well, you can't win them all! I thought 6 and 15 were sufficiently
different that I didn't need to combine them, but that's not what the rest
of you thought. The real definition was 6, the unwell feeling, and Paul
Keating's version of depression was 15, and that combination was the *vox
pop* vote. Paul even voted for his own def to throw you all off the scent,
although of course that vote doesn't count towards his already magnificent
score of 10*. The real def got 9 votes, and Chris Carson is the real winner
with an unnatural 5 points.

Over to you, Paul.
