I don’t normally solve the Boston Globe crossword (and by “don’t normally,” I mean “haven’t since 2004”), but I did come across a blog post proclaiming that today’s puzzle contained the best crossword clue ever.
69 (across) – “The _____ mightier than the sword.”
Yep, that’s pretty good. (On the other hand, I own this book, so it’s not the worst/best I’ve ever seen. But it is the most suggestive clue I’ve seen in mainstream print.)
oh my gosh. tell me that actually got published! that is HYSTERICAL.
SWMBO prefers not to believe this possible, though perhaps cute. By contrast, I think it is one of those serendipitous items of moment that amuse heartily. Who would have thought?
Clearly, someone did.
Good mind that.
