Distressed at being made mincemeat of? (3,2)
I believe the answer is:
'distressed' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
I cannot understand how the remainder of the clue works.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for cut up that I've seen before include "Distressed - dissected" , "Very unhappy" , "affected by separation" , "Abrupt change; pace" , "Happy? No" .)
