Great, Now Mini Crossword Can’t Stop Thinking About Gay Blue Carrots

Excerpt Answer: Sneezy!

[Editor commentary: This joke actually doesn’t work at all — I mean if we follow the logic, the opposite of a cough is not a sneeze but like, some version of inhaling something through the mouth, or even just overall health, as a concept? — but don’t you sort of love the concision of the whole thing? Anyway, have a great day!]
