It is Clueless time again – our informal weekly clue setting competition.
The idea is to compose a cryptic clue to a word or phrase which is submitted and judged by the previous week’s winner.
The judge’s decision is final - reasons may or may not be given at the judge's discretion. It is customary for the judge to donate a virtual prize to the winner.
Explain your clue if you wish.
To be fair to others, please do not make any comments on entries until after the winner has been declared.
Multiple entries may be submitted and new competitors are particularly welcome!
The Clueless 86 challenge is the Oxford Dictionaries UK Word of the Year 2012
Clues to be submitted by 18:00 Wednesday 14 November. I will announce the winner shortly afterwards.
