Brilliant work again from Blacksmith!

How about ...

McCannical Digger [psychology] A person with a disorder characterised by a specific form of repetitive behaviour, ie creating an increasingly large crevice in the earth's surface. Sufferers can be detected by the ever-present spade, the frequent mopping of the brow and the rubbing of the aching back. All such cases can be seen standing inside the hole as the furious excavations relentlessly continue, often to the detriment of the nearby flora and with no concern for any approaching water main.
This unfortunate condition has been traced back to a deficiency of imparted homespun wisdom during childhood. Therefore in maturity they have no understanding of the saying: "If you're in a hole, stop digging." In extreme cases there is no cure unless the person is physically restrained and incarcerated.
See also The Streisand Effect [New media]

NB.
This is not to be confused with McCannical Dirty Digger [Old Media]
This is a person characterised by an amoral pursuit of obscene wealth and a penchant for empire building. Can be easily recognised by his Dorian Gray death-scene appearance and traces of custard pie on his clothing. He is the propagandiser and keeper of secrets and cover ups for the aforementioned McCannical Digger(s) until death or prison. Whichever comes first, for any of them.

or simply

Mccanised - to be duped into believing a totally fictitious story

Mccanily - to act in a sly way

Mccanist - a gullible person

Most of all I would like McCann turned into McCan`t.

McStockholm Syndrome is an apparently paradoxical psychological phenomenon in which individuals express empathy and have positive feelings towards criminals, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the obvious lies believed by the victims, who essentially confuse bullshit with truth.

MacMunchausen abduction syndrome by proxy

MacMunchausen abduction syndrome by proxy is a form of child abuse in which a parent/s induces real or apparent symptoms of an abduction in a child.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

This syndrome almost always involves a parent staging the abduction of their child, then seeking police attention, press coverage and public funds for the search for the child. It is rare and poorly understood. The cause is unknown.

The parent may fake symptoms of abduction in their child by leaving the child unattended for prolonged periods whilst eating Tapas with friends, falsifying checks, secretly giving the child drugs to make the child placid, or using other tricks, such as interfering with doors and windows to make the child appear to have been 'taken'.

These children are often reported as missing with details that don't quite fit any known cases. Frequently, the public and police are made to suffer through unnecessary investigations, fundraising activities, summative overviews or other uncomfortable procedures.

The parent/s is usually very helpful in the public arena and is often appreciated by the media for the endless press oppportunities they provide. The parent is often seen as devoted and self-sacrificing, which can make law enforcement professionals unlikely to suspect the diagnosis of MacMunchausen abduction syndrome by proxy.

MacMunchausen abduction syndrome by proxy occurs because of psychological problems in the adult/s, and is generally a guilt and fear led behavior. The syndrome can be life-threatening for other child involved.


Symptoms

The child's 'abduction' does not fit a classical picture of abduction or does not fit together well.


The parent/s' 'grief' improves at home but reappears in public.


The parent/s overaact or are "too cold."


The parent/s is often involved in a large group of friends.



Signs and tests

Cadaver dog alerts used for investigative purposes do not make any sense.


The presence of discrepancies in the parent/s stories and those of their large group of friends cannot be accounted for.



Treatment

Once the syndrome is recognized, the child needs to be located and others removed from direct care of the parent/s. The affected parent/s should not be accused directly, but offered arguido status.

Because this is a form of child abuse, the syndrome must be reported to the authorities. Psychiatric counselling will be recommended for the parent/s involved, but since the disorder is rare, very little is known about effective treatment.

The cryptic meaning of macabre has only just sunk in! Yes, very good - a Scottish arbour (arbor in America) - a garden alcove with the sides and roof formed by trees or climbing plants.

To make it a good cryptic clue, I'd have added one word: "say."

Macabre : A shady area, say, to sit and dine at the end of one's garden

This tells the reader that the word being sought sounds like another word.

ETA: You could also play on Scottish pronunciation and the French word for tree by using a phrase like, "losing/lost a rolled letter."

Copied from the online URBAN DICTIONARY - 6 definitions

Post  comperedna on Fri 16 Mar - 14:57

1. McCann

To act with lethal irresponsibility towards one's children
leaving three children alone (7yrs and 3 years each) in a holiday flat in portugual whilst you swan off to sample a meal - just from the point of view of the well known problems that these holiday flats have with gas / fire safety standards and the number of gassings that have happened this way - let alone the fact one of the children was taken you'd have to be doing a McCann right?
buy mccann mugs & shirts
irresponsible lethal lethal idiots idiotic stupid morons

2. McCann

To make money and become a celebrity on the back of a tragedy. Using the newspapers for a purpose and then claiming to be hounded. To expose ones children/pet to dangers and then state that you are a good parent/owner. To blame everyone else for your errors for the purpose of 'damage limitation'.
Yeah they got cash coming in from everywhere and they still want more - they are pulling a 'McCann'

Jade Goody was crying on tv faking her sadness, she was trying to pull a 'McCann'

3. mccann

“To mccann” - is a new verb
” I mccanned my glasses” - means that I broke my expensive glasses by mistake, hid them and told everyone that my glasses were stolen from me, and now I suffer because I can’t see.

kitty:i'd got pissed and mccann it!

4. McCann

The act of ditching or leaving someone behind
Shit jade, Why did you leave me in the villa?

Because you are a cum dumpster jack, i had to mccann you.
buy mccann mugs & shirts
people places hobbies activity ideas


5. Mccann

Doing a mccann ( to do a runner from a foreign country whilst leaving an abducted child to their fate and claiming innocence whilst refusing to co-operate with the police)
The father claimed his sleeping child was abducted by a gang wielding guns and grenades as he was about to get into a taxi to fly home to the UK . The gang beat and tortured the family and then demanded £100,000 ransom. the father then left pakistan claiming innocence and cannot now be found. He did a McCann - legging it before the cops paid him a visit with shiny bracelets

runner abducted abduction child sleeping innocence legging fate

6. McCann

Doing something completely selfish which puts your children in danger.
Come on, hun, lets do a McCann and go to the pub. We'll lock the door, the kids will be fine.
