Puzzle #43: “Jawsomeness”
Difficulty: Not the most diabolical cluing, but still pretty difficult
Good morning, solvers!
I almost wonder if I should’ve just put this puzzle up last Monday…but I ultimately decided against it because I had just posted one on Saturday, and I didn’t want the spotlight to be stolen from Puzzle #42! Anyway, this puzzle was inspired by last week, one of my favorite weeks of the year (mini-spoiler if you click, so be warned!). I’d racked my brain to try and find some theme I could make about it that wasn’t too simple, and eventually came upon this one, so I hope you like it! Particularly pleased to get 15A, 18A, 3D, and 46A into this thing…the wacky design of the grid, which truly was necessary given my intense constraints, allowed for a lot of good non-theme stuff. Let me know what you think; I look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible!
