◆◆ · By will nediger and ariel haymarket · Published by ariel haymarket · Published about 2 months ago

Constructor's Note: You get the sense something is very wrong here.
Thanks to Frisco, Will Eisenberg, Hoyt Arcane, Christopher Adams, Hoang-Kim Vu, and I legit forget who else did test solving for this absolute hell version.
If you enjoyed solving this puzzle, or not, please consider sending a tip to help me turn this into a separate income source so I can afford estrogen. [Puzzles often sweary and themeless]
