A healthy fifteen possible definitions of GLUME follow. One is correct. The others are the products of your collective minds. They have been edited for format consistency and are in order by character count, which might not correspond to visual length in your email display font. Please vote for two that you like for any reason (such as, but not necessarily, thinking that they might be correct) by public Reply to this message before the deadline that follows the list.

1. [Fr.] a potter's wheel.

2. grease or other lubricant.

3. [obs.] slime, esp. of tree frogs.

4. an edible, mild-flavored seaweed.

5. a portent of fortune: good or ill.

6. rough fragments of wood; splinters.

7. a hot spiced wine drink of Scandinavia.

8. supporting structure for a polyp colony.

9. twisted out of shape (said chiefly of trees).

10. a collection of parishes ministered to by one vicar.
