Understanding Today's Crossword Puzzle

The clue "Hake tart served by Spooner? Cheer up!" leads us to the answer "TAKEHEART." Let's break down the clue to understand why this answer fits perfectly:

  1. "Hake tart served by Spooner": This part of the clue refers to a wordplay involving "Hake tart" and "Spooner." William Archibald Spooner was known for his tendency to mix up the initial sounds of words, creating wordplay known as Spoonerisms. If we take "Hake tart" and apply Spooner's style by swapping the initial sounds, we get "Take heart."
  2. "Cheer up!": The phrase "Cheer up!" in the clue is a hint to the solution. "Take heart" is an idiomatic expression that means to be encouraged or find hope in a challenging situation, which fits the idea of cheering up.

By combining the Spoonerism of "Hake tart" with the encouragement implied in "Cheer up!," we arrive at the answer "TAKEHEART," which encapsulates the essence of finding hope and resilience in difficult times, just as the clue suggests.
