Default [Dixonary] Round 3090: BUTTOCK-BALL Results

Votes were very spread out this round, a sign of either a great woid, or a very bad one.

There is an 5-way tie for the win, with Efrem Mallach, Debbie Embler, and Chris Carson all receiving 3 votes, while Alan Mallach and Ryan McGill achieved scores of 3 by correctly guessing the ball attended by prostitutes.

Among the leaders, Efrem has a clear lead in the rolling scores, and earns the honor of the next deal.

I originally found this woid in A New English Dictionary on Historical Principles while looking up something else, but thought the substitution of "dance" for "ball" sounded better in A Dictionary Of Slang And Unconventional English.

My apologies to John Barrs, who hazarded a (accidentally correct) humorous guess at the woid while submitting his def.┬* I interpreted it as a DQ. Goes to show you that dealers should probably refrain from commenting on not-clear DQs.

Take it away, Efrem!

1. in cricket, when a┬* fielder catches the ball before boundary line and reckons that he is going to cross the boundary, then he can throw it away into the field which can either be caught by any of the other fielders or he himself by entering into the field. In this case the batsman is deemed to be out.
