Sectione (Tony)
for me, brevity is bliss.

Simple idea, but mudgi (Louise) works for me, as well. Perhaps needed to include "4x4" to rate higher points.

At a personal level:
anything that demeans 'beetroot'
(slimy, staining, smelly curse on Creation as it is) will earn points
Safijow, according to Pere.

(it seems entirely inappropriate to
include a definition whilst voting on others..
so, frotet will remain a mystery...for now. )

In general I found Pere's to be very creative. What that man knows!

Comeade: I have the perfect definition but this is a family show!

Actually, hesper almost made me fall off my chair. And I loved the terseness of sectione: the Italian bit.
