I suppose I missed submitting a definition. Oops.

 

I feel like I’ve heard this before but don’t recognize any defs so I’m free to vote happily for anyone using Jackass in a def (4).  And I think I’d prefer maize beer (9) to raspberry tea.

4              Local name for the South African or Jackass penguin (Spheniscus demersus).

7              An organ stop of eight-foot pitch.
