And here’s the longest list of confusion yet!
5, 18 down: Outer kiss wasted? An instrument of conflicted love (7, 8)
The answer is eternal triangle, so triangle = an instrument, but outer kiss wasted = eternal? What?
11 across: Heard a prompt snarl in 18-down (triangle) (5, 5)
Acute angle = in triangle, but the rest?
14, 29 across: Case for surgery field continues stunning turn-out! (9, 7)
I managed to guess based on cross clues that case for surgery = caesarean section, but I had no further explanation for it.
19, 10 across: Design principals dispatch documents (5, 4)
I’m wondering whether or not this one is a mistake, but before doing so, I thought I’d make sure I haven’t missed something. It seems to me here that dispatch document = order form, so design = order, but I can’t see how principals = form, although I would be willing to accept principles = form. Did DA make a boo-boo, or am I just confused?
22 across: Seeing that article about rock music covering the Wings release (8)
Is this where I lose all respect for DA? Has he really made reference to McCartney’s Wings? I don’t really know because I don’t have an explanation for how seeing that = inasmuch = article about rock music covering the Wings release.
24 across: Sweet baker once rejected some mutton rations (6)
Sweet baker = Arnott, but other than mutton containing a fair whack of Arnott, I ain’t got nuthin’.
27, 16 across: Computer coterie offering American fish, tail first (4, 5)
A computer coterie = user group, and American = US. After that, I need help.
2 down: Backstab as much as you like (1, 4)
A gogo = as much as you like, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how that could mean backstab.
21 across: Jam courier swallowed rum, cap off (6)
Jam = muddle, and rum cap off = um, but that’s all I’ve got.
