    i was looking for the meta box to type in banana... i wanted to feel smart for once 😛

      Took me a second to catch the theme but nicely done! I believe there's a typo in 4D
      4D MOESName of a cartoon bar or Tex-Mex franchise
      - should it be "cartoon" instead?

        I always seem to have that one that sneaks through. Thanks, nice catch, and fixed 😉

            Fun fact at 1A
            1A WWFConservation org. that forced a wrestling league to change its name
            ! Not sure who falls into the category of a "bodybuilding hipster rabbit" but I know that hipsters love hoppy beer! I appreciate that you didn't circle or highlight the banana-words, and left it up to the solver to figure it out. Clean grid!
