Missed Aches Were Maid

· By SporcleMirror · Published 4 months ago

Constructor's Note: Bad fill ahead. Always happens with these contest midis.
The themers come from r/boneappletea, which is a subreddit about people who THINK they know how to spell things but are veeeery wrong. Named after some guy trying to spell "bon appétit" in a post.

    Fun fact: my friend Beverly always thought that the lyrics to Cecilia were "you're shaking my coffin and skating"

        Sorry, replied to wrong comment and can't delete. Ugh.

            I have a friend who's a court reporter. She loves telling the story about a witness who once said the defendant had a "personal bandana" against her, and when the attorney questioned her she repeated it twice.
            Nice puzzle, btw.

              Awesome! r/boneappletea is one of my favorites too. :)

                  "Can you leave the keys under the plant ____?" "You mean the plant in front of the door? It doesn't have a ____" "No I mean ____. Like the French say" (This sounds more like it would be on a fancy dinner table than under a plant)

                  Canonized pope from the 5th century AD (seriously, with the title AND Roman numeral? How much bad fill is in this corner?)
