And what a better puzzle to compare/contrast with than today's Themeless Monday offering? 1-Across certainly wasn't happening nine years ago. It probably wasn't happening nine weeks ago. By the way, tip of the hat to Francis Heaney (mostly) and Ben Zimmer (just a little) for that clue. Yes, it took a couple people to get that phrased just right. For the, uh, unfamiliar with that, uh, fad, I humbly offer this (probably NSFW) video.
Thanks to all who were able to contribute to last week's drive. And congratulations to Stephen Witthuhn of Manhattan as the winner of whatever he'd like from the BEQ.com store.
Share the puzzle. New one on Wednesday.
