    14A14AIt gets laid[---] and 3D3DGot laid[------] 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Great puzzle!

      Haha, thanks! When your mind's constantly in the gutter, writing crossword clues is easy😅

          Another fun one. I liked the two (four?) crossed answers.

            Thanks. Don't discount the connection between TAB8DKey hit with the left pinkie, to a touch-typist[---] / DROCTOPUS7ASpidey foe[---------], either.🤔
            • Grant Kennell 🤓3:24 · 2023-02-23T21:01:02.542Z
              Okay, I may be dense but that one escapes me.
              • Brian Callahan constructor · 2023-02-23T23:25:53.034Z
                No, you're not dense. I was trying to find two answers that were pretty absurdly different, but the joke didn't land. However, if you can find something that these have in common, I'd definitely adjust the cluing. Who knows, maybe Doc Oc likes to drink diet soda?😂
                • Grant Kennell 🤓3:24 · 2023-02-24T05:34:59.930Z
                  Eh, I’ll take the L here. lol I had to look up Doc Oc. I think Coca Cola missed a great product placement opportunity.

                    Coke missed out. "SPIDERMAN. POP?" is actually an anagram of "PEPSI PRO? DAMN."

          Thanks!

            Triff! Just FYI: I stumbled over 7A7ASpidey foe[---------] because I'm more used to Doc Ock, or Doctor Octopus. Super puzzle!
            • Brian Callahan constructor · 2023-02-24T07:05:46.123Z
              Ha, thanks! Went with "Spidey" vs. "Spiderman" to try to hint at the shortening of "Doctor" to "Dr." But you're right, I think he is more traditionally referenced as Doctor Octopus or Doc Ock. Even though it's somewhat imperfect, I love putting a Spiderman reference into the puzzle. Appreciate the solve!

                    Nice puzzle, risqué but not risky.
