I may tend to explode (8)
I believe the answer is:
'i may tend to explode' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.
'i may tend to explode' is the wordplay.
'to explode' is an anagram indicator.
'imaytend' anagrammed gives 'DYNAMITE'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for dynamite that I've seen before include "dangerous stuff" , "Tiny dame (anag)" , "High explosive" , "Jelly" , "Powerful explosive" .)
