Puzzle 46 – “I Have Solved the Puzzles That Were in the Icebox”

The three long horizontal entries here were the seeds, and the title is of course a reference to 18-Across.

Favorite clues: 32-Across for the fun fact, 40-Across for the pure silliness, and 53-Down for the combination of the two. I fear that this one is leaning into some generally obscure references at times, but after all, these things are, to some degree, a glimpse into their creators’ minds, amirite?

Happy solving, friends, as always. Hope you enjoy. Comments welcomed.
