Puzzle 89 – “I’m a Fool to Do Your Dirty Work”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Okay, so title aside, this one isn’t really super Steely Dan-centric. It’s not a full-on Grid Charlemagne (though he does get a shout-out at 2-Down). But it’s been a little while (39 weeks, actually) since we’ve had much Fagen-Becker presence here. Matt can have a little Dan, as a treat.

Seed entry here, actually, wasn’t 45-Across, but 22-Across, which is also my favorite clue of this one. I also realize I’ve been slacking on the Muppety presence in my crosswords lately, so 1-Down should help make up for that.

As always, yall, happy solving. Comments welcome. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Good one.

    I had trouble in the bottom left corner. My fault though. I threw the wrong word in for 50 across and it took me a minute to recover.

  2. Really nice. Thank you

  3. Another educational and somewhat tough puzzle!
