#196978 - 02/04/11 04:37 AM Voting has opened on TOOZLE
Loc: Middle Earth
Well this one has sparked a lot of comments! Have fun choosing between all of these wonderful daffys...voting closes next week (11th February).
I look forward to the discussions on these...have fun and, as always...

B toozle – in Scotland, with golf, when a tee-off goes awry
C toozle – to pull about, especially applied to any rough dalliance with a female
D toozle – n., [< Hung. ducel, leaf] a confetti particle with multiple bends applied to induce spinning as it falls
E toozle – to muss up playfully (var. of tousle)
F toozle – a South African drink made of fermented rooibos, (rooibosch), tea and local herbs
G toozle – Toozle Sticks are small sticks, commonly made of plastic, used to stir mixed drinks or garnish cocktails. The pointed end is designed to skewer fruit and the decorative heads are shaped like palm trees, flamingos and tropical fruits. The toozle portion of the toozle stick name originated from the Caribbean cocktail, Rum Toozle

Yes, and that's the Armil theory again...that just suffered two consecutive counterexamples...
Gotta think about this one a bit.

First, a confession: the one I submitted was actually suggested by my husband, as I simply could not think of anything, and he is very good at Balderdash. P'raps you all would be willing to allow a substitute player for this round? [batting eyes prettily e]
I vote for C.

Before I vote I would like to ask if it would be possible to keep the initial headline of the topic intact or at least keep it regocnizable. I've been looking all over the place to find the results. Curse, gnar, drat, woof toozle and all.
Great and difficult choice of nice ones!

Its puzzling how two daffynitions ended up with similar meaning...I'm guessing they are the original concept.
But I really like L its brilliant and should be a new word, well I'm going to use it....toozling isn't it.
