- How To Build A Thingamajig (appears on a few sites)
- A Usenet post quoting from Digital Webster
- A Usenet post quoting from Encarta World English Dictionary
- A Usenet post with a fair bit of Aussie slang

- I had meant to leave you a note of apology for too-hastily removing the category marker. Just the sort of thing I complain about when others do it (though at least I did check google first) -dmh 17:17, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)
- Hmm . . . of these, only the last really supports the "metasyntactic" sense, but it's pretty strong ("the whole jigger cost A$30"). The first one supports the verb use, and the rest appear to be references. In any case, I'd consider the metasyntactic sense rare, but certainly valid. -dmh 17:22, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

This is an rfv-sense for the definition "a spliff". --Jeffqyzt 19:47, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
- The fact it was added out of order (as the primary sense, no less) by an anon IP is a pretty good indication it is just vandalism. --Connel MacKenzie 19:56, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
- Do we have "primary" senses (except as obviously, the actual order)? In any case, it seemed somewhat plausible despite the dodgy nature of the contribution. I don't claim to have any great familiarity with drug culture terms. --Jeffqyzt 15:21, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
RFV failed. Sense removed.
