A Confusing, Nasty DA Teaching (11th July)

21 across: Massive wombat turned lazy with excess, yet alert (10)

Google got me diprotodon = massive wombat, which is a fine piece of DA nastiness and a fine piece of DA-taught trivia, but I have not the faintest clue how turned lazy with excess, yet alert = diprotodon.

  1. well, turned lazy=torpid backwards=diprot
    not sure about how with excess, yet=od
    but perhaps
    alert=on?

  2. Yep, you’ve got it.

    with excess = OD as in overdose.

    Now go figure out the syllogism clue. We don’t even know where to start on that one.
