More parsing help please.
Order to import more of Italian drug. Ans opium. I guess I =Italian but where does opum come from?
Term of abuse for one losing control, maybe? Ans Teacher . I know a teacher may lose control of a class but can't see the rest of it.
Maybe too voluble to consider a metaphor. Ans Figure of speech. I know what a metaphor is and I know what too voluble means but I can't see how the answer fits.
Meeting for, say , a full rendition of Wagner? Ans Foregathering. I know that Wagner's works are not noted for their brevity but?
Basic application may provide education for man. Ans foundation cream. Education would be foundation but how does "for man" and "cream" work please.
Here's to a drinker. Ans toper. If per has to equal a , how does that work? Best I can think of is 6 oranges a £1 which is loosely the same as 6 oranges per a £1 though I can't imagine saying the latter.
Boys in Baywatch, perhaps and best Dallas parts. Ans stable lads which is an anagram of best Dallas. Stable lads aren't necessarily boys -they can be in their 60s and can't get the reference to Baywatch (I know it was a Tv series)
Thanks .
