There just aren’t enough people around to make the games fly. If just a couple of us get caught up in real world things then there will be too few entries to continue. Fwiw I’ll send a couple in the next few minutes.

Thanks, Kalleh. That makes three submissions of one or more daffynitions. Hardly sufficient. B35? Anyone else?

No more daffynitions, so here goes:

1. The male organs on hermaphrodites such as snails

2 Small quill pens

3 infant penguins

4 the class of animals with feathers

5 repentant novices in a nunnery, during their period of atonement

6 infants born with a penis

7 A system of exercises to develop meditation, flexibility, and self-defense skills

8 General word for swans or swan-like birds.

9 An order of medieval monks in Northern Europe.

10 A group of Roman senators who were expelled from the senate and exiled for attempting to organize opposition to The idea that Caesar was a living God.

11 Spoked, ultra-large, urethane wheels for scooters

12 Roman household deities

Take your pick; one's for real.

Literally nothing sounds remotely likely so I'll just choose number 1.

Well sorry I missed that, Geoff. Good choice, & I would never have picked the real one. I was thinking, maybe the "thing with feathers" (apologies to whats-er-name).

Where have you been, bethree5? With so few of us left, we REALLY need you!

I'm guessing Haberdasher knew the correct definition. Maybe he even has a couple! Wink

Actually, I didn't. But I grouped the entries by attractors and and discarded most for their recurrence: No newborns (neonates), nothing sluggesting penises (overlap with newborns), no birds (overlap with penguins), nothing with feathers (pinna), nothing with Latin (overlap with latin (pilates, senates) monks and nuns)). That didn't leave much, and urethane scooter-wheels was just too bizarre...

Gamesmanship is usually nice-but-no-cigar, but this time it was on target.

Actually my "swanlike birds" definition was because a female swan is called a "pen" and a male one is a "cob".

Good critical thinking, Hab! I imagine you did well on exams.

Sorry, Geoff, that I missed this one! I think I would have chosen #7, mostly because I thought it had nothing to do with penises or being repentant, etc. Ah well.

Who's got another word to toss in to test Hab's mettle? Or Hab, have you got one to test the rest?
