i Cryptic Crossword 1207 by Dac

December 22, 2014

Well it’s been said before, but Dac’s just so good at writing clues!  He makes it seem almost effortless sometimes, and the end result is that it’s a real pleasure to engage with any of his puzzles, this one included.  The original bloggers here http://www.fifteensquared.net/2009/12/16/independent-7229dac/  were very taken with the Tiger Woods clue at 11ac, but it’s a bit dated now, so I’m going to pick a very simple little clue as my COD nomination, which somehow typifies for me what Dac does so consistently well:

8d  Discharge small rifle (8)
