Manage episode 334127422 series 2927391
A super Sunday crossword, with an ingenious theme, deft cluing, and while a challenge, about 1,000,000,000 times easier than yesterday's Mt. Everest of a puzzle.
From clever clues like 120A, Tipsy trips, BARCRAWLS; to treats like 9A, Reward for sitting, say, TREAT; and TIL's such as 27D, New York resting place for Mark Twain, ELMIRA, and the artful 23A, Where some stable relationships form?, STUDFARMS, there was something in the grid for everyone to savor.
As mentioned in today's episode, there was a slight issue with Emojis. The one in 1A, 😂, is named "face with tears of joy", whereas the answer to 1A, ROFL, presumably should have been associated with 🤣, "rolling on the floor laughing face". So, a mistake? The inscrutable editors are not saying 🤔 ("thinking face").
Regardless, the crossword was terrific, definitely a 5 squares on the JAMCR scale, DAGNABIT!
