For those who like such things, I highly recommend today's Guardian Prize Crossword. It's top notch Araucaria and, of course, it's now free.

14 Across in today's Guardian Prize for [livejournal.com profile] f4f3. Made me chuckle anyway.

answer )

These two clues amused me today (again, it's possibly germane that the Guardian is involved)

1. Dubiously legal, if extraordinary, performance (9)

2. Town reportedly excluded a former dictator (8,5)

No one crossword should contain clues to which the answers are "Scooby Doo" and "Jogger's Nipple". Just saying.

From today's Grauniad prize crossword:

"New rich don't let Ladybird help in Thailand with gin and it - good cocktail - new, possibly his memento" (if anyone 22 I'm de-11-ing 16 across) (11,4,4,1,2,5,2,4,4,4,3)

the answers to the referenced clues )

I'll put the answer behind a cut in comments.

ETA: No I won't I can't get a cut to work in comments.

I hate crossword clues involving or appertaining to vegetation. I hate with a burning passion crossword clues that involve or appertain to stupid Tennysonian synonyms for vegetation.
