    butchers shop.....rib roast? rump roast?
     
  9. Are these cryptic clues? Is there a shared theme to the answers?

     
  10. gudrun

    gudrun New commenter

    No they are not cryptic there were 10 sections with a theme and 10 questions in each. Still unsure about the WorcesterWarwick/Tewkesbury/Evesham - think they are all on the Avon.......and stlil unsure of RR

    Millais. The others are baroque composers, Millais is turn of the Twetieth century.

    Didn't read Cosmos' reply sorry. I think hers is more likley, as some of the composers have the same surname that would be your first thoguht but then dates don't fit. Sorry - did try to edit and delete but no go.

    Have you considered rhyming slang? Sometimes it goes full circle. Here's an example:
    "Sitting on his aris"
    To get to the bottom of this you need to understand that "aris" is short for Aristotle...
    Aristotle= bottle
    Bottle and glass=****
    A butcher's is the shortened version of butcher's hook, i.e. look
    So:
    Butcher's=look
    Look and think=have a drink
    Drink and toast=rib roast

    thank you so much - but i really don;t think it is quite as deep as that - the questions relate to what you can buy in a butchers shop [VC=Veal Cutlet0 KOP(Knuckle of Pork) PT(Pigs Trotter) but i think RR might be Rib Roast


    only other one unsure of is Worcester/Warwick/Tewkesbury/Evesham thinks its either to do with rivers or battles still googling
