Could a boofhead be lazy and on fire? (6)
I believe the answer is:
'on fire?' is the definition.
('ablaze' can be a synonym of 'on fire')
'could a boofhead be lazy' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'a' is present in the answer.
'boofhead' could be 'b' (head letter of 'boof') and 'b' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'laze' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
'and' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for ablaze that I've seen before include "Fiercely aflame" , "filled with anger" , "On fire, burning" , "Bright" , "being toasted?" .)
