Suppress a joke (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

gag

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'suppress' is the first definition.

(thesaurus)

'a joke' is the second definition.

('gag' can be a synonym of 'joke')

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for gag that I've seen before include "Prevent from speaking freely", "Joke (colloq.)", "Silence the joke", "Funny", "Joke; silencer", "Joke; choke", "Muffle with slang joke", "Stifle; joke", "A palindromic joke or muzzle" and "Make quiet".)
