This week sees the return of The Apprentice on the BBC – a program which, I have to confess, I watch avidly. To celebrate, I have chosen PROFIT as this week’s word.
Your challenges are to create a definition that has some interest or deception, to construct wordplay that is accurate and fair and to write a plausible and smooth surface reading. To help you deliver these requirements I have arranged for you each to be given FOUR clues to write. I advise you not to use up all your clues at the start of the week, as the best ideas often come later. I will do my write-ups daily so don’t even think about deleting one after the day of submission.
I’ll see you in the boardroom at 5pm on Friday, where – sadly – all but one of you is going to get fired. Dram
PS Those of you in far-flung places need not be concerned, no knowledge of The Apprentice is required, this will still be the regular competition. The only change is the limit to the number of entries per person.
