The Best Crossword Clue Ever?


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.)

  1. 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.
