Default [Dixonary] Round 3156 FASKIDAR Results

Having spent some time in the Outer Hebrides, I know a few Scottish names
of seabirds, but I hadn't come acraoss FASKIDAR, the Northern Gull (5).
Johnny Barrs, Paul Keating, and Efrem Mallach guessed correctly, leaving me
with a D3. Johnny also got 4 votes for his Bengali Lance-Corporal, making
him the new dealer. Judy Madnick, Paul Keating,and Efrem Mallach tied as
the lucky runners-up with 3 points apiece.

Over to you, Johnny.
