For a change...

I picked this up from the Hinduxword Yahoogroup. Let's try coming up with clues for words.

Something that struck me (I think I saw it once quite a long time back in The Hindu Crossword) as a standout clue was one for the word CHEST : Revolutionary way to align a trunk (5), the funda being Revolutionary = CHE (Guevara), way = ST (short for street), "to align" being the connector. The best part is there are no loose words in this clue, and every word has a defined role to play.

So we'll try the same. Here are five random words/phrases that came to my head. Let's coin clues.


Prestige

Stand and deliver

Vox populi

Measles

Carburetor


You're welcome to coin as many clues as you can. Anagrams are welcome, though wordplay and well-disguised telescopic clues would make for better clues.
