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')

(Other definitions for gag that I've seen before include "To silence", "Joke; restriction", "Palindromic muzzle", "Silence the joke", "Muzzle in palindrome form", "A joke to muffle?", "Joke; silencer", "Muffle with slang joke", "A palindromic joke or muzzle" and "Stop the mouth with a joke".)
