Among the reasons why stupid/silly people shouldn’t attempt difficult crossword puzzles is that conversations like this can ensue:
Me – For 69 down the clue is “Bilingual Muppet”, and it’s a five letter word. The only bilingual muppet I can think of is “The Swedish Chef” and he’s not really bilingual either. He only speaks…
My husband, rudely interrupting me – Gibberish?
Me, feigning defensiveness – That’s not gibberish! It’s real Swedish!
Here I do the accent to the best of my ability and say, “Bork, bork, bork – bork, bork.”
After that, I can’t stop laughing and am no good for anything for a very long while.
PS – Muppets rock.
PPS – Any ideas on a five letter word for “bilingual muppet?”
