A bumpkin of a sort (3)


I believe the answer is:


'a bumpkin' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'of a sort' is the wordplay.
'sort' indicates anagramming the letters.
'ofa' with letters rearranged gives 'OAF'.

(Other definitions for oaf that I've seen before include "A clumsy or stupid person" , "An ill-mannered lout" , "Clumsy fool" , "Stupid or clumsy man" , "Boor or lout" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
