Puzzle #122: “Escapades”

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 6:26 am

I’m flying without a safety net on this puzzle. Not only am I cheating on little details like not making the grid a proper “industry standard” 15×15, but schedule issues kept me from sending this off to be reviewed. Thus, you’re trusting in just my own taste in clues without any independent verification. Lets just hope that I didn’t reference the wrong variety of fringed Brazilian lizard or misspell an Etruscan deity in my impatience to get the puzzle published.

  1. A Wednesday-Thursday time for me. Had to chuckle at EVIAN and NAIVE being in the same puzzle. Cool theme entries, except that it’s “Tales FROM the Crypt”. ROADEO is cool. But what’s the “440 count” = ONE LAP? Something to do with auto or horse racing?

  2. Re: theme. D’oh!!! Alas, it’s a bit late to revamp it now, but the criticism is certainly accepted.

    440 yards is/was a standard foot-race length (i.e. quarter mile — it’s now pretty much been replaced by the 400M), and is/was also the length of a standard running track. Thus, if you count the laps in a the race….

    Evian and naive is fun, and of course I also had fun with the PETAs.
