I unfortunately forgot to write a post for Monday Mandarin Meanings yesterday, but I didn’t forget to pick up the Monday Michigan Daily – all of which I immediately recycled, except for the crossword puzzle. I was offended when I saw 67-down: “Picnic undesirable”, three letters. The answer? Ant.
The puzzle is from the LA Times, but that does not excuse the Michigan Daily for including this offensive clue in their newspaper. I don’t know who they’re assuming thinks ants are “undesirable”, but I know that both the LA Times and the Michigan Daily are seeming pretty undesirable to me right now!
