Default [Dixonary] Round 2871 DROGULUS Results

Dave Cunningham is our new dealer with an unnatural 6 for his metrical foot
interjection. He was closely followed by the real winner, Efrem Mallach,
with a natural 5 for his extra copy of a bodily organ. Four of you guessed
that a DROGULUS is an unverifiable entity (Def No 7).

Takle it away, Dave!
