G sounds almost impossible to contrive, but...something about N is pulling me toward it. I'll take N for a hod of coal.

this too shall pass
well, let's see. a hogshead *is a large cask, equal to four firkins or two kilderkins -- so that leads to c, f, and g.
and the Brits call a young sheep a hoggerel(?), I think until it's been first shorn, which leads directly to o. then you got your Harley, which leads to d and l.

have I covered all the armilsŪ?

actually, I have a stinking hunch it might actually be o. <cough>

I ran this word by my David (as opposed to all the other Davids I know) and he unerringly picked out the definition I'd written, saying merely "I know you".
Me, I thought there were three definitions here that sounded like ones I coulda wroten.

I understand that if Hogwash had rules the rules wouldn't allow me to change my vote so instead I will bust the cabal that has corrupted this round of Hogwash. As follows...

(1) On a thread entitled "words that do not describe themselves"
tsuwm referred the illuminati to his website list of worthless words.

(2) tsuwm then provided a convenient link to the section "H" of his word list which focused on the word "herterological", which means "words that do not describe themselves".

(3) Then an unmentionable poster said "Don't let the cat out of the bag!" but tsuwm said "If there are 37 listings, I'll be number 37."

(4) And sure enough Hogwashers, if you count the "H" list from the bottom, number 37 is...

hoggerel : [Brit] a young sheep

Disgraceful!
