Glutton for Pun #205 by Erik Agard

We’re back with another Glutton themeless! This one seemed to play harder for me, but I was able to finish without any Googling or guessing. There weren’t many gimmes for me here, so it took a while to make real progress. TISHA [Campbell-Martin of “Martin”] was my first entry, followed by the crossing of DATE and DOPER, and SIC. There was a lot of jumping after that, which I could expound upon, but my daughter is demanding I color with her, so we’ll keep this short.

Things I love: BLACK GIRL MAGICHAAGEN DAZSRESCUE DOGKOALAS. Things I don’t love as much: the partial SHAR, and abbreviations JUN on top of UTILOUEST [French direction] confused the heck out of me, because apparently as one word it means “west,” but as two words, “où est” means “where is.” I knew the latter from friends who took French in high school, so I was thrown off.


Awesome clues: [Candy bar that sounds like it should cost 1/5000th of a 100 Grand Bar] for SKOR, [Shedder of a few pounds, perhaps?] for RESCUE DOG, and [Jeremy who now plays in Brooklyn with a guy named Brook] for LIN.

Feel free to add anything in the comments. Right now I have to figure out why my three-year-old is running upstairs, grabbing my shoes one pair at a time, and bringing them downstairs to put them in a box on the living room floor. She says “Cuz I have to.” (She’s done with coloring for now.)

To the Americans reading this: have a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Don’t drink and drive, don’t drink and play with fireworks, and if you’re local, I will not turn down deliveries of corn on the cob or any sort of red, white, and blue dessert.
