Elphaba is increasingly ostracized as the story develops, holding views opposed to the norm of her society (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  Triple W – aka Elphaba – being tended to by one of her flying monkey minions.

CLONUK  =  UNLOCK,  ZAEDAM  =  AMAZED,  ETEDNC  =  DECENT,  LAWTEH  =  WEALTH,  ICNIOC  =  ICONIC,  PENYHH  =  HYPHEN   —   Giving us:  CKAADDEWEICHHE

Clue/Question:  After a long day of casting spells and wreaking havoc, the evil witch had a . . .

Answer:  WICKED HEADACHE

(Excellent!  A nice long – 14 letter – answer, making for a great pun!  All the clue words were jumbled really well, although I didn’t have trouble with any of them.  I was a little surprised that there were three new clue words that ralis95 can add to his database.  They are “wealth”, “iconic” and “hyphen”.  The guys very carefully danced around the word WICKED, which was a clue of omission.  However, if you needed further clues, all you had to make note of was the crystal ball, her flying monkey, and her mountain lair, to distinguish her from your run-of-the-mill witch.  Striped socks are standard witch issue.  Furthermore, the answer letter layout was marvelously cryptic.  I can easily see how some people might have had some trouble getting today’s answer,  Be well and do good, not evil, my friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Margaret Hamilton absolutely made The Wizard of Oz the great movie that it is!  All the Margaret Hamilton shots come up as Non-free, so you’re getting one of the lovely Wicked stars instead.    —   YUR
