  1. hahaha never have i been so bad at a mini puzzle- and i am pre-coffee but that’s not even why, i was just totally blanking on 60-70% of these and due to personal bias kept trying to make “high” a five-letter word

  2. I was missing one letter and thought The Chicks song answer was “y´all” (didn´t grow up with U.S. culture) so I spent a full minute under the impression that the answer to “vibrator setting” was “pussy” and was all “wow, love this bold crossword puzzle!”

    Bet there´s a dirty-crossword-solver/constructor subculture.
