mummichog.
It's not really obscure, I saw it in some dictionaries. I just would like to know who knows without the use of dictionaries the meaning of the word. Guesses are allowed, dictionaries not. Bless the return of the dropdown menu. I can be bold again.

I've never seen it. And can't even guess at its meaning.

I have no time to do the full rituals. Just see who comes closest to or knows the word. I thought in stead of well defined-nitions it could run till one guesses or appears to know the meaning. Which gives a winner without all the editing counting etc. to do.

A game of guess.

I have no idea either, never come across it.

Bran...I'm upset you didn't run it as hog word mad

(but I'm glad you got your boldness back).

It sounds as though it should be the diminutive maternal parent of a CHOG

Ha! The shrewd answer of a old routineer. Now for the chog...

Candy, any one willing to do the work could take over.
I can deliver a false definiton, but for the whole work I suffer from typotoxicosis.

A hot drink sold by street vendors at old mummers plays in England and Scotland.??

Come experts of the obscure, I was so sure olly or tsuwm would know the word right away. If not Faldage. I'm not disappointed, just a wee bit melancholic.. laugh
I esteemed your knowlegde so much!
