William Tunn’s submission of “Densa” tied for first in the popular vote, however this was the fourth submission of the same word.  The judging panel ranked it against the others in a separate exercise and applied a correcting factor according to the results.  The original submission in 2013 was universally adjudged to be the best, with one of the judges commenting that it was a case of “always the bridesmaid”, William’s definition having come in second.  As a matter of interest, here are all four submissions, judge for yourself.

An international organization for not-so-bright people (Paula Day – 2013)
A group of people known for their lack of intelligence when it comes to picking up on human body language and innuendos (Name Withheld – 2015)
An organization for the intellectually challenged who don’t qualify for membership with the other organization (Andy Quinn – 2017)
An exclusive club for the not too intellegent (William Tunn – 2023)

The Original Word with the most variations (13) is “Colorectal”, all by Geoff Williams in an inspired burst (if that’s the right word for it), followed by “Oxymoron” (5).  Since 2010,  “Condominimum” has been defined in six different ways, followed by “Idiotsyncracy” and “Meanderthal” (5 each).
