Great hints there, folks! Look like the answers to me!
You following the OP again, Llanfair? Out of order, this is a free to all Q&A site.
Out of order, Captain? lol. You're a comedian!
11 - BE + I + a cricketing term for 'on' 3 letters reversed (def roll = bread).
36 - 'wearing' is the def (your 'd' is wrong - you need a 4 letter word for 'painful' reversed) it ends with 'NO 1' = 'chief' [reversed].
8 'it' is sexual (and your 's' is wrong) - it starts with 'O(ver' and it ends X = 'times' + ED = 'journalist'.
26 - (your 'a' is wrong) it starts with '(fo)RE(st)' and it's 'floor' as in KO [reversed] inside a 3 letter word for 'dread'/ ('shock and...').
No, totally straight faced Llanfair. You have a bee in your bonnet about the OP, who hasn't done anything wrong by the rules of this site.
Oh dear, Captain! Do try reading, there's a good chap!
18 def is 'Best' - starts with 'T(raffic)+H(eads)' + E + a 4 letter word for 'place' [reversed]
If an OP specifically asks for hints....
Please don't patronise me Llanfair.
If you mean 'Some hints' in the question, there is nothing wrong with putting that.
If other members of the site prefer to answer the clues, that is their prerogative, not the fault of the OP.
All I was saying that the 'answers' were hardly hints! If you feel patronised, suck it up, Captain!
You certainly have a way with words and attitude, not to my taste though.
Well, ain't that tough, Captain!
Question Author
Many thanks for the hints and answers, all! I'll be looking to wrap this up tomorrow. Good evening!
Thanks, Matakari. Good luck with the 'wrapping up'! It'll be great to hear if you get it all done.
