Crazy Times

I'm so happy to bring you today's puzzle from the one and only Ben Zimmer, aka The Barnacle, aka the Wall Street Journal's language columnist, chief nerd among nerds, champion #grid-spotter, and all-around good guy I feel lucky to call a friend! Who doesn't love a super nerdy acrostic?? No one, that's who! 

Ben says, "I've been meaning to try out Alex Boisvert's super-slick Acrostic Generator on his Crossword Nexus site, so I thought I'd throw in some word salad that's been tossing around in my head for some reason!"

And, HAPPY LOLLAPUZZOOLA! please find me (and Ben!) and say hi!! :D
