I totally read "puny" as "punny" and was trying to think of a synonym for someone who says a lot of puns. D'Oh

Nope. It is a style of beer but it's not hoppy. That's an IPA. Porters are generally darker and maltier, sometimes smoky, with flavors of chocolate and nuts.

Never heard of the food "Banger". Also, is it possible to be more clear about the toilet paper question? Unit makes it seem like you mean one square of TP.

Units could mean a number of things. For example, if you wanted units of distance, that could be measured in meters, inches, miles, or even light years, so the type of unit is for you to determine.

And as Erikthev's comment reminds us, it is not unusual to add filler to sausages in tough economic times, when it is hard to make both ends meat.

Can "sage" be used as an adjective? Because if not, then I think you need to change the clue to "wise man" or something similar to comply, because the difference in word forms threw me off

Erikthev--just to make things more confusing, GOAT (all caps) is also used as an acronym for Greatest Of All Time. There's a book about Muhammed Ali by that name.

I've heard the term all my life, but not only in sports. I think it comes from scapegoat.

I've heard goat in other contexts as well. not just sports. to me it just seems to be a shortening of scapegoat. but I guess in that context the person who gets the blame doesn't actually deserve it, in the sports context it's more like the person who actually is to blame for the loss.

I too am an American sports lover, and have never heard of goat in this context. I wanted the answer to be "dick"; a lot of American athletes really are, and I hear you Brits have some mysterious food known as spotted dickā€¦

Also as well as not being very well known even by US sports fans, "goat" isn't food. Like "cow" and "sheep" are not food names.

In my region, barbecued goat is a popular food. Just because it is sometimes marketed as chevon or cabrito doesn't mean it isn't also called goat. We also eat deer instead of venison.
