Gayle has already asked whether or not this week’s is an April Fool’s Day joke. I’m not sure what that means — us Melbournites have to wait until tomorrow, when it’s not April Fool’s Day, so it might just be that I’ll never really know what Gayle means — but here’s where you can talk about it.
Enjoy the cryptic (and perhaps foolish) talk.
Update: TT tells it as it is: DA appears in today’s paper in Melbourne! Not sure if that is a permanent feature — does anyone know? — but I’m certainly happy to see him back on a Friday (I like perusing crosswords while I’m working).
Further update: Have I just been April fooled? Just bought the paper and discovered DS inside. Needless to say, a disappointment.
Further further update: And here it is:
I hardly did any of it (the crossword comes scanned in by the ever so kind Jonathan), so I can’t say much about it.

DA is in today’s Age.
Done. Tough in parts today…
5D very cute…
Nyuk. Nyuk. Nyuk.
Ha! Good one Gayle!!! You have up-ended TT.
At the risk of dropping myself in it, if there is something for me to be dropped in since I have no idea who Gayle is and what she said (unless “she” is Chris Gayle), how did Gayle up-end me? I thought I up-ended AS.
I like that you’re immune from up-ending by default, TT.
AS too easily becomes SA.
Question: Are cruciverbalists naturally prone to dad jokes?
According to my students, that would be a resounding “YES!”
I am often accused of making “dead” jokes by my kids. So I guess that is as good as dad.

Or is this now groundhog day?

: ) or TT’s inuit chuckle
Loved 5,11A, and any DA with a mention of the Roosters has to be good!
Also tickled by 24A and 29A.
Mmm 8th April and two frustrating ones left. 15D and 24A. And clues,people?
