i Cryptic Crossword 951 Phi

February 26, 2014

Phi gave us one of his sort-of-themed puzzles again today;- fortunately I got all those intersecting two-worders in the corners on the first pass which made things afterwards a lot easier than they might have been…  All went smoothly until the last four which took a lot of head scratching and a bit of dictionary trawling. Was the clue for ‘zeugma’ itself a zeugma?  I’ve no idea!

With honorable mentions to 14ac, 4d and 16d, my COD goes to 17ac: Get back regarding voucher that’s not viable (6)

    Thanks for the blog today! It was 15ac that gave me real grief, holding out for a long time after the rest of the grid was complete.

    For once I was grateful that my sons are big Ben Stiller fans 🙂
