The original seed for this puzzle is at 17-Across (believe it or not, it wasn’t 1-Across, though that was one of the seeds). You probably know what they are, you’ve seen them all over the place, you’re probably familiar with the concept, but you may or may not know that they had a name.
The night before this post, I actually saw a (very well-acted) “Shakespeare in the Park” version of “Romeo and Juliet”. When I heard the line at 16-Across, the light bulb went off in my head because I remembered that I used that line in the clue. What’s more is that this wasn’t even the reason that I picked that puzzle for this post. It’s always whatever grid I have in my queue that strikes me the most at that particular moment, unless I have a more time-sensitive topic. So it really was pure coincidence.
My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is at 6-Down. Well, it wasn’t from this puzzle, it was from a feature I watched a while ago on one of those science stations with the high channel numbers. That fact I included in the clue isn’t the only fascinating thing about that parrot by far.
As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?
As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Tuesday!
