Starting off a little early this week.
Welcome to Clueless, our informal weekly clue-setting competition.
The idea is to compose a cryptic clue to a given word or phrase.
The winner of the previous week's competition both sets the word to be clued and judges the entries for the current week.
The judge's decision is final and reasons may or may not be given at the judge's discretion. It is customary for the judge to award a virtual prize to the winner.
Multiple entries may be submitted and new competitors are particularly welcome.
Clues should be submitted by 7:00 pm UK time on Wednesday 4th December, with the winner to be announced shortly after.
A lot of recent contests have been (fairly) won by way of clever wordplay, of course it matters but this week I am going to pay extra attention to the definition element of your clues.
The answer to be clued is:
Have fun and please explain your clue - it may be obvious to you but I can be a bit thick sometimes.
I shall look in with interest !
