Word Ladder 7

Constructor's Note
Some rather strained fill, but hope it is fun nonetheless. Feedback very welcome! Note: I inadvertently dropped the circle in 15A15ALaugh, in Lima (last letter should have a circle)[----] — it should be around the last letter Vector optical illusion illustration image courtesy of depositphotos.com.

    Tricky one! Still always enjoy the challenge of these. A little switch-up in terms of thought process

      Glad you enjoyed!

        Glad you enjoyed, even with glue like BIAN18ATubular club designed to inflict blunt damage, _aka_ "Chinese whip"[----] and DISA12ADo**D** **a**gency that handles **i**nformation **s**ystems[----]

          The great part about word ladders is that you can backsolve the entries you don't know easily :)

          Things got really tricky towards the bottom of the grid. FYI 15A15ALaugh, in Lima (last letter should have a circle)[----] doesn't contain a circle, which didn't help in combination with me not knowing 14A14AComputer architecture that is faster by having a smaller set of instructions[----] either. Fun puzzle though.

            Thanks for the flag @dooiemus! Sorry I missed that. Unfortunately I don't think I can edit now but I'll put it in the Constructor's Note.
