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
