Friday Foxer #72

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

The honeycomb below is a fancy form of wordsearch in which every cell is used, and words can curl and zigzag but never overlap. Each hive foxer has a theme (some past ones: rugby, human migration, Egypt…). Identifying the theme is a vital part of the defoxing process. Today’s puzzle is composed of 16 answers.

  1. B8 – BOHEMIAN

    It would be a very Friday 13th move of Roman if the obvious red herring on the K row turned out to not be a red herring.

  2. Something to do with Flowers?

    BLODEUWEDD – means ‘Flower-faced’
    LAKSHMI – usually shown holding a lotus flower

  3. Wednesday could yet be a red herring – Minerva, Parliament and Wednesday would leave an orphaned NE
