Back by popular, um, indifference? dismay? … a themeless where, to paraphrase Whose Line Is It Anyway, almost everything is made up and your time doesn’t matter. The rules are simple:
– All 3- and 4- letter words are defined straightforwardly
– Longer words may be:
(1) Normal words clued with little or no regard to their usual meaning. For example, in my first Goofy Themeless (posted 6/21/21), the answer to the clue “’It’s a boy; I can ___,’ said the geneticist with the supersensitive nose,” was SMELLY; or
(2) Made-up words or phrases. For example, in my first Goofy Themeless, the answer to the clue “self-referential, laxative cereal” was METAMUESLI.
If you like this puzzle and didn’t solve the first one, now you’ve got a head start!
Please enjoy and share. Next up (10/24) will be a “normal” themeless.
