Who or what is a wherry? PM your daffynitions - or the right one if you know it.

Bob and Haberdasher probably know it, but at least it'll get this game going again.

Oh, my. I haven't thought of that word for sixty years! Thanks for bringing it back to mind, Geoff :-)

I appear to be wrong about getting the game going again. Just two people have submitted daffynitions. Several former players have died, but that's not the case for those of you who can read this! Please respond with a PM full of daffynitions!

Do not despair too much. The Wales limericks may have numbered 15 but they all came from only five people. And only three have voted in a three way tie.

Since nobody else wants to play, I'll declare this game deceased. A wherry is a boat.

As I am 50% of the active participants may I request that you publish my suggestions as i was quite proud of them?

1. (archaic) A word like "whence" (from where) and whither (to where): wherry = beyond where

2. An undersize piglet - the runt of the litter

3. A drink popular about two hundred years ago consisting of a 50-50 mix of port and ale.

There's also

4. WHERRY - Onomatopoetic word for the sound made by a water wheel as the water pours off it into the spillway

and the more whimsical

5.WHERRY - "SpellCheck" corrects this to Harvey's Bristol Cream

Hey! What am I, chopped liver? Sent these 8/16:
1. An early-20thC “land yacht,” or wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail.

2. An amusement park ride introduced in the 1940s, a variation of the Tilt-A-Wheel.

3. Feeling tired and hungry, especially as a result of staying up too late. “They talked until 2a.m., and began to feel a bit wherry.”

Chopped liver you're not! Probably more like filet mignon. Per Bob's suggestion we self-published. Now you have too, so this game is now officially defunct.
