@TerranSwett I guess anything I wrote
but they're not very good :(
I guess that means you'll find them easier to solve
Lad leaves you speechless, cutting off middle finger??????
ok this is not a CC at all
but I was playing around with (-you)TH
THUMB
and (-m)UM

I thought I might be close with lady=MAAM, 2 Across leaves you speechless...but this gives MMU, not MUM

12:41 AM
hmmmm
can we use "Across" literally

It's a bit self-referential, but I think we talk about D and A as common abbreviations for down and across, e.g. 1D, 2A.

2 Across = 2 A = AA?
hence, AARDVARKS

I was an owner of selling coffins in a shop . One day a man comes to me and says :- "Please give me the best coffin or the most expensive one to me , for I always wanted the best coffin for my wife.

CCCC hints: (0) I feel slightly guilty about the "bags" part, for two reasons. (1) First letter is K.

10:28 AM
clearly the enumeration should be 1... the word "chum" bags H, which is a drug

11:06 AM
@GarethMcCaughan keta mine, but bags=mine seems to be a part-of-speech mismatch unless I'm missing something.

11:46 AM
@msh210 You are missing something (I think), but it's a fairly obscure something.

chambers says bags - (children's slang) i want to do or have, etc (the thing specified); i lay claim to it - "Bags I sit in the front"
so it's like saying "(this is) mine"
keta is some sort of fish?
ah, keta salmon = chum salmon

12:02 PM
Right!

@jafe I guess that's what I was missing, but it only works if "bags" works as a clause by itself.
@jafe yeah, that much was clear

I think one can simply say "Bags!" to mean "I claim that", but it's a little unusual.
And one can say "Mine!" to claim something, too.
But both are a little odd, and the conjunction of those two oddnesses is the main reason why I feel slightly guilty about the clue. (The other is just that "bags" in that sense is really quite obscure, especially outside the OK.)
But I liked the clue so much otherwise that I couldn't resist :-).

Slightly disappointed it wasn't an &lit.

I'm not a big &lit fan.

Anyway, I think that one goes to @jafe who filled in the missing piece.

12:06 PM
i think you got it, i was never getting any part of that :)

If I post one now, there'll soon be 24 hours I can't monitor chat for a reply. So if you have one, then go ahead, @jafe. Otherwise, I'll

i've got nothing prepared

You could say my prefix aims for the top. My infix with my suffix sets a strong foundation and just like here, seldom used on its own. But my suffix really sounds like it puts it all together.

A Riley riddle: My prefix is a unicorn, My infix is not better. My suffix is the first to do teamwork, My $whole + Boyz$ is hip-hop. Can you solve this? Sorry, you can't just go to a mathematician and ask him to solve this. Only a Puzzler can solve this😉 Hint 1:
