Clue doh!
« on: Oct 16, 2020, 04:13:28 PM »
 One of my crossword's clues that gave me a chuckle today:


'...Blundering with vajazzle in the wrong place..(8 letters.)'
A man said: You can always tell a lady, but you can't tell her much.. (Moliere maybe?)

I think I’ll gloss over that bit of worldliness, actually.
BTW what do you think of the three league idea for the county game next year?

I'm afraid that's passed me by Mike.. I rarely read the sports pages these days.. What's at the bottom of it?

I don’t really understand it, but the idea is that instead of two divisions, there will be three ‘leagues’ of six teams playing ten games on a home and away basis - first class, not pyjamas - with the top two sides from each ending up some knockout arrangement leading to a Lords final.
Must try and get my head round it better

first class, not pyjamas
Vajazzles must be discrete and preferably not on view then.

These crossword compilers must lead a more interesting life than I would have expected.
