  • $\begingroup$ Are you sure this is a cryptic clue? A cryptic crossword clue has both a straight definition (as you might see in American crosswords), and wordplay that leads you to the solution separately. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ Deusovi - I'd say it comes close to what you describe but the 'straight' definition would be pretty much impossible to fathom unless you first get the cryptic part. Therefore I've changed the tag. $\endgroup$ Dec 13, 2018 at 12:59
