I suppose I missed submitting a definition. Oops.



I feel like I’ve heard this before but don’t recognize any defs so I’m free to vote happily for anyone using Jackass in a def (4).* And I think I’d prefer maize beer (9) to raspberry tea.

African... or not? I'll go with one of each, 4 & 7.

4 Local name for the South African or Jackass penguin
(Spheniscus demersus).

7 An organ stop of eight-foot pitch.
