A dose of crosswords

My latest Onion puzzle is out today -- not sure how to describe this one except to say that it's a puzzle I'm simultaneously quite proud of wordplay-wise and not entirely proud of subject-matter-wise. But once I thought of 53-Across/65-Across, there was no turning back. Ben Tausig described it in his weekly Google Groups post as NSFTBT (not safe for the breakfast table). It's unsafe in a lot of ways, really.

(Download Across Lite for a happy solving experience.)

Wow. I'm a little amazed you got away with that one.

Well, this is the Onion, after all. (Scroll down to Aquarius.)

I liked the third theme entry best. Just something about that particular juxtaposition...
