Hear ye, hear ye, gather round all you Hogwash workers I've got a conundrum to be solved.

But first


Have you heard this one before.....

On a beautiful summer's day, two English tourists were driving through Wales.

At the town of, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogoch they stopped for lunch, and one of the tourists asked the very blonde waitress, “Before we order, I wonder if you could settle an argument for us… Can you pronounce where we are, very, very, very slowly?”

The girl leaned over and said, “Burrr.... Gurrr.... King.”

Well that's just a little joke, but it shows the importance of understanding the question before we can formulate an answer. But with this game, you are being asked to give meaning to a word, you may have never heard before. What could be easier?

Now you have entered, relax and read through these daffynitions. Hidden somewhere is the real meaning, but pay it no mind.....chose the one you like best and PM it to me. Points will be awarded and counted to find the winner. The winner is the one with the most points, not necessary the one who guesses correctly, in fact, I believe I get more points if you don't guess the real answer.
