Hey everyone, and welcome to Week 101! This puzzle is coming to you while I’m at Myrtle Beach for Labor Day weekend.
This week’s puzzle has a lot going on. I think it’s pretty damn funny. Hope you think so as well. If you don’t, you can get your money back.
Be sure to check out the Eclipse puzzles that were #100 here on the blog! You still have time to finish them!
Also, I want to thank friend-of-the-show Ben Smith for the glowing review he wrote about me for Crossword Fiend, which can be found [here].
Thanks everyone! Enjoy the puzzle!
ETA: The problem in the clue for 6D has been fixed. I actually noticed this mistake last Friday, but couldn’t do anything about it. I am in fact at Myrtle Beach for Labor Day weekend, and the campground I’m at does not feature wifi at the campsites. So, I’ve been unable to make the update. I finally was able to travel to a spot that did have wifi, and now the problem has been updated.

Shouldn’t clue for 6D be “gets” caught, not “get” caught?
Also, I don’t understand 27A.
Loved the tripling of the rebus and its link to 30A.

Clever puzzle for Labor Day. Took me longer than I’d like to admit on figuring out the rebus. I was ready to throw in the towel, when 1D suddenly came to me. Then I pondered for another minute whether SPERMSON meant “Incites.” Nice AHA when the solution came. Quickly wrapped up the puzzle then. Thanks! BTW, don’t think I’ll ever see 41D in a NYT or WSJ. Daring!
Can’t believe I hadn’t thought of “labor day” in that way before. Good find and very fun puzzle!
