Default [Dixonary] Round 2992 vote for FUGELMAN


Twelve definitions of FUGELMAN follow. Eleven were created by an expert panel after great expense of time, energy and Internet bits. The twelfth is correct. They have been edited (very slightly) for format consistency and are in ascending order of 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. If, on seeing the definitions, you realize that you know what FUGELMAN means, please notify me by private email to emallach <at> verizon <dot> net.

2. [Rare] a scarecrow.

and other times in other places. Please check any time conversion that applies to you. That site is good, but nobody's perfect.
