Morning dabblers – hope your holidays are still rolling, or did the trick, if you’re back at Dunder Mifflin. Some odd snippets to consider. The first is a clue from Arachne the other day, which has me stumped every which way. Your help please:
Capital’s articulate observer of squid? = NICOSIA
Another challenge, if you’re in the mood, is the comical combining of two Hollywood surnames (as cinema banners will do). I must admit I’m pretty chuffed with my own pairing: HAGGIS/ WITHERSPOON, but thought we could ‘cook’ some other fine fusions. Feel free.
Last up, the British stuff awaits our savouring. Loroso in the Financial Times (14213) was on fire. Well worth chasing down, just to relish two container clues like these:
Deep pockets are not for finance (8)
Churchman in very good form (8)
Tell us what other lovelies you locate, or mehs that niggle, here in the Comments. Have a verbivorous week.
