    Question Dishy as thing OR person ???

    I wish to use the word "dishy" within my domain name of my nearly finished website. I'm seeing the word "dishy" as being "attractive" (be it be any THING or PERSON, whatever), however, the definition I checked from the website below ONLY mention the use of word in the sense of "attractive PERSON".

    http://dictionary.cambridge.org/defi...2317&dict=CALD


    If the use of word "dishy" is ONLY limited to be used for a PERSON ONLY then it wouldn't make much sense to use it so, I wonder if anyone around could confirm the use of word to describe "THING" as well ???

    Default Re: Dishy as thing OR person ???

    I looked it up on http://view.byu.edu/ and they had some other uses (smile, haircut), but they are still close to people. They do have 'dishy mels', but I am not sure whether that counts.
