i Cryptic Crossword 926 Morph

January 28, 2014

Inventive, funny, groan-worthy as ever from Morph. Lots of excellent clues, but my COD goes to 23d – ‘What did the man on ‘orseback wear? (5)’.

The 2009 blog is complete:

    I can’t remember; is Morph always this good? So many crackers here! As good as a good Punk – and did I read 8d correctly? Pretty racy for Crosswordland!

      Morph is almost invariably excellent. 8d’s to be expected from him. 🙂

    • So much good stuff! Pretty tough, though – I had a few unfinished. Cornick, you may have over-read 8d, where ‘sex’ is ‘such activity’ (from 7d) coming under SUS, as the … imply.

      There is also a top-notch puzzle by Eimi in today’s Indy. Clue of the day there: “Boy one associated with private saving account (4)”.

        Yup. I was looking for a sex synonym within the clue!!
        Scratched my head for a while before getting my last one in – the delightful address: Dresden, China.

    I was okay with those ones but took a long time to fill in the top-left corner … primarily because Patrick was the only Moore I could think of. Got there in the end though. My COD would be 25ac, just for the definition part.
