Would betting get stuck by a nasty stain? (7)
I believe the answer is:
'would betting get stuck by a nasty stain?' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.
'betting get stuck by a nasty stain?' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'betting' could be 'sp' and 'sp' is found in the answer.
'get stuck' could be 'lodge' (I've seen this before) and 'lodge' is found in the answer.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for splodge that I've seen before include "Irregular blot" , "big splash" , "Spot, splash, smear" , "Dirty mark" , "Messy spot" .)
