And here I was going to say it couldn't be B because that's not anything like the sound a peacock makes. It's more like 'help!'
I also don't like A because it's too much like a real definition to be the real definition.
I'll go with M

That's exactly why I didn't go for it either - it sounds more like "ooh-ah, ooh-ah." But on the other hand, it's often the simplest most unlikely definition that is true, so we may yet regret that decision...
That's it.!I always wondered what it is that makes the sound of peacocks ominous. But it is nothing foreboding,
they just cry: "Help!"
There are several that seem correct to me, but I must choose, so it'll be m.) for me.
Yes, sometimes a.) definition can just seem too good. Going with A.'s single-letter cousin, k.) .
Happy Thrappling. I'll go for J
Since my definition will, I'm sure, be voted for at least once (if it hasn't been voted for already), I'm going to return the favour and go for "n". I'm sure it tastes wonderful.
Nobody going for b,c,e,g,i,k, or l?? Only half the definitions have been voted for. Jackie's chances of getting points are looking good so far. And whoever made 'f' is laughing, unless it's the real one in which case Jackie is crying.
Pook, hold your horses. It ain't over till it's over.
Hey, Jackie, when's it over?
>Nobody going for b,c,e,g,i,k, or l??
actually, b and k do have votes; let's consider whether the others are worthy..
c) thrapple.. supple.. probly not
e) I'm having problems *picturing "light, hoofed animals on a gravel track", much less hearing them
g) I'm sorry, this doesn't look like a real def'n to me (so this is probly it!)
i) "sound made by an outboard motor in brackish water" - points for imagination
l) one of those that almost looks *too real
even paring it down to these, I still can't decide -- but I've made a case for g and i, haven't I?
having typed all that, I guess I'll plump for i.
