Looking for Clues

Fantasy Bob stimulates his few remaining brain cells through a mild addiction to crossword puzzles. This is a sadly abused activity – already he senses his worldwide audience conjuring up a mental picture of a cardigan with leather patches, slippers and a well sucked pencil. But FB assures his readers that crosswords are a young person’s sport. Indeed the sport will become the epitome of chic once following the imminent launch of a new range of crossword performance gear specially designed by Stella McCartney.

FB mentions this because earlier this week the Guardian crossword intersected with FB’s other preoccupation. Here are the clues. FB hopes is sure the intellectually powerful cohort that is his worldwide readership will work them out easily – even though he accepts it is more difficult without the grid and the other clues which give some letters.  The answers link to the first answer - get that and you're laughing.   Enjoy.
