◆◆ · By Aaron · Published about 1 year ago

Constructor's Note: This puzzle and came out of an effort to work on easier (I hope) clues and clean fill, and the theme was devised as an excuse to make a puzzle around the clue for 24A. Feedback is always welcome.

    Really nice puzzle Aaron, I loved the theme 😂. I struggled a bit in the NE and NW, but otherwise it was all quite smooth for me!
