adj.— «I fled to Harry Ramsden’s for lunch, washed down with a bottle of the Black Sheep Brewery’s ale, Riggwelter. The label, decorated with an apparently dead ram, explained that “when a sheep is on its back and can’t get up without help, in Yorkshire dialect it is said to be “riggwelted.’”» —“Howard’s way with vowels woos the riggwelted faithful” by Simon Hoggart Guardian (U.K.) Oct. 6, 2004.
