I realise it's a bit early for the Peer Review, but I am out early tomorrow and back late, hope you don't mind.


This is a competition for clue setters. The idea (like CLUELESS) is to set a cryptic clue to a given word, unlike Clueless you will be judged by your peers and not the setter of the clue word.

Multiple entries are welcome. You MUST post a clue for your vote to count. One vote per contestant – please state the post number you are voting for.

The entry with the most qualifying votes wins and sets next week’s PEER REVIEW. In the event of a tie the setter chooses the winner.

There is a (roughly) one day time frame. Your clue must be posted by 1.30pm Friday, when voting opens. Voting closes at 8pm Friday, the winner to be announced shortly afterwards.

Early voting would be appreciated, if the result is clear prior to the voting deadline it may be announced before 8pm.

The setter donates an online prize. The setter reserves the right to change the rules in order to deal with unforeseen circumstances.

Feel free to include an explanation of your clue just in case solver-voters cannot appreciate your clue.

The word to be clued this week is:

pastille: We have snappers in my neck of the woods. They're built like army tanks and are among the ugliest, most vicious creatures on God's earth. Often, after a heavy rain, one of them will stray into my yard from a nearby swamp. I once approached one with a broomstick; it seemed oblivious at first, but then lunged at (and bit) it with such force that I went flying backwards- terrifying. They're the reason I'm apprehensive about fresh-water swimming.
