Welcome to our weekly competition to compose a cryptic clue, to be judged by your fellow contestants.
You may enter as many clues as you like and everyone is welcome. Feel free to explain your clue if you think it will help, or to ask another poster to explain theirs.
Entrants should vote for their favourite clue - please include the post number and please also refrain from commenting on entries until voting has finished. The entry with the most votes wins and its composer sets next week's competition.
Your clue should be posted by 1:00 pm on Friday 8th December when voting opens. Voting closes at 8:00 pm. The setter has the deciding vote in the event of a tie and may change the rules if necessary.
The setter will declare the winner and award an online prize.
