You may enter as many clues as you wish, and everyone is welcome. Feel free to explain your clue if you think it will help, or to ask another poster to explain theirs. As a courtesy to others, please do not otherwise comment on entries until voting has opened.
Clues should be posted by noon (UK time) on Friday, June 24 when voting opens. Entrants should vote for their favorite clue and include the name and post number. Voting closes at 8.00 pm (UK time) on the same day.
