capstan (nautical) the rivet on a hook on the knob on the handle on the tap on a rim of a pipe from the funnel on a grate in a hatch in a panel on a door of a barrel, on which the captain traditionally hangs his hat during meals.

capstan the point at which you phone Geeks on Call.

Reaching her capstan on why the new wireless connection didn't work, Isabell broke down after two solid days of swimming through the same windows, hours with the help desk and dialed.

Wink Capstan (n)

capstan - The guy sitting in the cockpit seat next to the First Sofficer.

"Do you have our flight plan, First Sofficer Bob?"
"No, not yet, but I do have your vodka shot, Capstan Smith"

capstan -- an announcement habitually discounted, such as Sale or Going Out Of Business or Judging Tonight.

capstan n.

A ridiculous, obviously home-made, styleless hippy hat which is distinctive in that everyone else finds it risable other than the wearer, who truly believes it will attract the opposite sex.

capstan - an extra cleat on a pair of athletic shoes that gives the wearer just that much extra support

Capstan: The ACTUAL definition:
1. Nautical. An apparatus used for hoisting weights, consisting of a vertical spool-shaped cylinder that is rotated manually or by machine and around which a cable is wound.
2. A small cylindrical shaft used to drive magnetic tape at a constant speed in a tape recorder.


And the judging commences, starting with our big losers this time.

Dinzdale might have well not have bothered entering this vile and insulting, pigheaded, and intollerant insult to the judge's craftwork.
capstan n.

M.Bales (notorious double posting loser) had a great entry with:
capstan -- a wooden, Y-shaped support for porn actors on break from a scene in a porn film.

The fluffer made sure Dinzdale's capstan was just where he liked it before she resumed her ministrations, while the camera crew took a break. 'I wouldn't even need the damn thing,' muttered Dinz, 'if they'd hired the Nolan sisters like they promised.'

But lost again with this second disqualifying entry:
capstan -- an announcement habitually discounted, such as Sale or Going Out Of Business or Judging Tonight


12": Is seventh runner up due to simply being "Not funny enough".
capstan [geog.]

Region at the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan that proclaimed its independence in 2001 (not recognized until August 2006).


harrier is sixth runner up, and complimented on a decent first try at this game...but also encounters "Not funny enough" as well as "Misspelling does not a definition make" (for this judge).
capstan - The guy sitting in the cockpit seat next to the First Sofficer.

"Do you have our flight plan, First Sofficer Bob?"
"No, not yet, but I do have your vodka shot, Capstan Smith"



xfox: Is fifth runner up, but doesn't make the high numbers cuz of "Not funny enough".
capstan the point at which you phone Geeks on Call.

Reaching her capstan on why the new wireless connection didn't work, Isabell broke down after two solid days of swimming through the same windows, hours with the help desk and dialed.


Brynn: Is fourth runner up and complimented on the nautical theme, but doesn't make the high numbers cuz of "Not funny enough".
capstan - the last stanza of an unusually long whaling song.

FunkyTuba is third runnner up with this running related def that caused a small chuckle:
capstan - an extra cleat on a pair of athletic shoes that gives the wearer just that much extra support

Daver is second runner up with this Very funny entry that might have won if I actually watched South Park:
capstan

One stagehand in all episodes of South Park is required to put on, adjust, maintain, and store Stan's hat during filming. He is known as the Capstan.
They also employ a Capkyle, a Hoodkenny, and a Fattencartman.


Trisherina: Gets first runner up with this nice and timely entry (modified by judge just a bit for M.Bale's benefit)
capstan: An unwelcome yet extremely polite reminder.

Elliot cursed impotently at a capstan email from his boss encouraging him to check his functional requirements against the technical requirements to weed out discrepancies prior to the all-employee meeting Monday, and then he sent a capstan to Marcus Bales reminding him that Coffee always disqualifies double entries.


Hyakujo's Fox wins the "Nautical Nomenclature Hall of Fame" award and takes first prize with:
capstan (nautical) the rivet on a hook on the knob on the handle on the tap on a rim of a pipe from the funnel on a grate in a hatch in a panel on a door of a barrel, on which the captain traditionally hangs his hat during meals.

Take it away H.Fox.

whatever the next word is -- that one last comment that gets you sent to the vice-principal's office; that one last remark that gets you beaten up in a bar; that one last Dictionary Game Entry that gets you disqualified from winning.

oppignorate swine-like opposition to the status quo where room for improvement is usually needed.

Satisfaction gained from the new toy quickly faded as realization that making a silk purse from a sow's ear was not as easy as first thought.
