A very nice set of punny clues today.
Ladies and gentlemen, one of our newest cruciverbalists has stormed onto the scene, as she and I put in a near-perfect performance. TT, take a bow. This poolroom’s for you!!
She kicked it off by getting the theme, unassisted. I did have to chip in with a few 007 references, as she grew up without the disturbing influence of TV, but took the honours again with some of our final clues. Unfortunately there is no one known as JIMMY COCKBAR, but it hardly matters!
Feel free to comment here about your own DA moments that need to go straight to the poolroom!!
Have your confusions resolved right here.
Get your LR on today in the Fairfax papers.
Have your DA confusions sorted out for this week right here.
Head’s up: LR is out today, and Rupert is calling it almost as difficult as DA’s on Friday.
I think LR has a four-week stint before swapping with RM. Might be time we pay him more attention here he’s that good.
I’m a little confused by Australia’s first innings, but am loving it at the moment. And I’m assuming cruciverbalists all over the commonwealth are cheering too: AGAR I’m assuming fits into quite a few tight cryptic spots.
Anyway, have your cryptic confusions sorted out here too.
