    Nice one! I loved the theme. Got all the themers but somehow got stuck on PORKCHOPS
    38A PORKCHOPSLean cuts of meat
    🤦

      That was a tough one! But very fun, especially once I saw the theme. PS, in 28D
      28D ELRONDCouncil leader, in a Tolkien work
      , it's spelled Tolkien.

        For once, 'i before E' applies! Fixed now. Thanks Emma :)

          Liked most of it but ran into trouble at the bottom - can you take "name" out of the clue for 40A
          40A NAMEONE"Oh yeah? Bet you can't provide a single example!"
          since it's in the answer?
          • kieranjboyd constructor · 9 days ago
            Apologies! Thanks for pointing out this goof - I've updated the clue :)
            • sal17 13:57 · 9 days ago
