199T(eaneck): Update

This crossword puzzle was created by Side Bar.

It is very clevah - test your '90s Teaneck trivia (click on the image to enlarge to legible size).



If you want to print it, it might be easier to download the PDF.

Click here for ChuckJerry's answer key (side note: link temporarily disabled). I haven't consulted Side Bar as to the accuracy of my answers, but I'm pretty sure these are right. The one that I could not get (that I claim is ungettable) is 16 down.

Seeing as how this has become a group post, I am italicizing my comments. I think Max should have gotten 16 down, and I am pretty sure my brother will get it too. I have received a lot of criticism for 19 across, which may be mis-spelled. If you think you have the correct answer to 19 across but it doesn't fit, remove the "h" from your answer. I spelled it without the "h" and many have suggested that was in error. I was planning on putting the answer key up in a few days, but I thought Chuck gave it a bit prematurely, so I have disabled it for now. Hope everyone enjoys this . . . I thought I had given a nod to everyone, but Open Bar may be right . . . I think his clue got deleted before I published because it was screwing up the rest of the puzzle. The clue was: There's one in Cali, and he's friends with all of them. Answer: "hollywood"

Damn, yo ... a decade worth of my crazy sound-bites and I don't even merit one clue? :(

Perhaps it's the use of sad faced emoticons that got you two snubbed.

Open Bar said...

Maybe it's because that crossword sucks. And so do you.

you're breakin' my heart, asswipe.

Joe, you are referenced in at least 2 clues.

Incidentally, I got every clue except for one, which I claim is ungettable by anyone. I asked the person the clue referenced and he didn't know the answer.

I thought I might have been 6D, but nothing fit. Are we gonna have an answer key coming?

My humble contribution: 199Teaneck #3: Max, Momo, Mike Barzilay and More

Each iteration I got fewer, I think. #2 and #3 were both roughly 50%.

I'm tempted to make one now. If one pops up here in the next little while, don't be surprised.
