Happy Tuesday! If anyone happened to see my Twitter recently, I teased about today's puzzle originally called "Attack of the Llamas!" Well, as I was getting ready to write this post, I went and checked that grid and saw that there wasn't a single word that hasn't been used in the NY Times crossword before. I like having new/unique/obscure words in my puzzles, so I tossed out the clues, words, and grid, and started anew! Instead, you're getting a VERY pop culture heavy puzzle. Okay, the pop culture stuff is only ~24% of the puzzle, but it sure feels like a lot more than that. Otherwise, as usual I hope you enjoy the crossword!
