    Isn’t it your own filthy mind that has suggested the answer? It’s the poor scrabbler who blames the clues… :P

    Katydid whatnow?!

    Seriously, though, this needs to be reported to the NSA.

    And now Allied High Command may have to cancel Operation Buttsex!

  5. risser says:

    You know, the bottom one can be arranged to say “depoops”. That’s kind of dirty.

    Also, #2 could be a “tad diky.” Or a celebration of “Dikt Day”.

    Hooray for dirty anagrams!

    Prufrock451…That’s a great link.

    Loose lips…what is it that they do again?

    “The real answer, of course, is entirely G-rated”

    And how exactly do you know that “subtext” is the “real” answer?

  10. minamisan says:

    now, for the rest of my life, every time i hear someone use the word ‘subtext’…

    Antinous, just tell me you get the joke, so I can die happy.

    JCNemchek, that’s admirably tidy. Thank you.

    Also, #8 Prufrock – Bwahahaha!

  14. Antinous says:

    Some people think that no matter what’s being said to them.

  15. musicpsych says:

    #25, that was awesome. I like how you didn’t explain it, either – I earned my treat…

  16. Matthew Miller says:

    I don’t get it — what’s naughty about “Best Tux”?

  17. boukenpurple says:

    Remember: You can’t spell subtext without buttsex.

  18. pffft says:

    boingboing has some of the funniest comments in the blogsphere. why is that?

  19. Antinous says:


    You can almost sing that to the tune of “Have an Eggroll, Mister Goldstone” from Gypsy.

    The NY Magazine’s crossword editor, who’s great, will once in a while use the clue ‘poop out’ for a 4-letter word. The real answer is ‘tire’ but I always think of a certain transitive verb…

    Oh THANK you! I saw this in my local paper (work copy), and no one else I mentioned this to had seen the paper that day. Now I have a link to prove that this actually exists.

    I saw “buttsex” right away, and couldn’t for the life of me get past that to work out the “real” answer.

    Specifically, Salvia divinorum cut with mushrooms from Helsinki.

  23. Sowey says:

    This is where the “rack” boxes are making sense.

    Boxes, that you need to…. fill.

  24. jonathan_v says:

    I think the author was trying to use subtext to talk about buttsex.

  25. cronopio says:

    This sketch from ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’ (that’s Hugh Laurie, now known as House MD) is about a similar predicament.

    You, sir, are no Trey Parker.

  29. ehkca says:

    Now that I’ve seen the dirty answer I can’t for the life of me see the proper one.

  30. acohn says:

    I think the correct answer is “subtext.” Not that that doesn’t make the incorrect one funnier…

  31. gerta says:

    Ha! I first thought the dirty answer, then realized it was supposed to be subtext. But that makes the dirty answer even funnier.

    Sad it isn’t spelled with the “secks” suffix (or sufficks?). Scrabble doesn’t roll with the new kids.

  32. jcnemecek says:

    Ahem…I went back and fixed my math. You’ll see it in any image that someone takes from my site from now on. Thanks to those who noticed it.

    I was waaaay too busy laughing and waiting for my husband to show up so I could show the puzzle to SOMEONE that I must have lost my ability to add :)

  33. macisaguy says:

    and they say video games are a bad influence on kids…

    The first I thought of was SEXBUTT and now I can’t stop tittering.

    I recall a Jumble cartoon where the word solution was supposed to be “spine” but that’s not the word I came up with. I’m still laughing, but then, I am easily amused.
