What fun. I had a friend who worked on IPC women's magazines. He was a graphic artist but due to staff cuts he ended up with the job of compiling the crossword for 'Girl' magazine (back in the 80's). He set up a crossword so that all the answers were 'Kylie Minogue'! :D

Lemme guess. One down, one across. "That Aussie bint that gets all up in that Welsh prick's dreams".

Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Well it wasn't worded quite like that...but you've got the gist.

2 across: I should be so lucky.

I'm impressed. I guess that means the next one will have to be more difficult. :twisted:

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

This puzzle is evil. :x

I've nearly finished. I even got most of the foreign ones (like the very tough American ones). :?

I am stuck Image on three across clues (and five of the accompanying down ones) which are driving me mad!

Speed matters not...I shall pour myself a grog...open my cabin window to let in the sweet sea air...and let my mind wander across the Downs and Acrosses of the vast Ocean of Crosswordness.

This is a link to the crossword as I have filled it in, so far. Spoiler alert, obviously.

There are at least 8 letters filled in incorrectly, at least two of which are crossed letters - you have both the across answer and the down answer filled in, but the letter they cross on is wrong. PM coming.
