Double-definitions are a good way of cracking open any crossword. The clues are often short - sometimes only two words - while the recipe is luminous. Besides that, most crosswords carry at least one example.
Yet far fewer puzzles can boast a triple-definition, let alone a quadruple. Yet I stumbled across both specimens in my recent solving adventures, and thought their excellence could inspire this week's Storm.
Here are the two clues, the first from Screw, the other via Bonxie:
Cares for more than one behind looms = REARS
Hit victim behind target = BUTT
Talk about bum steers! Derrieres aside, these are two fine clues, dabbling in that rare space of manifold definitions. 'Butt' - can we match the marvels? Who can conjure the best triple-header (or beyond)? Kick ass.
