Friday Foxer #112

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: owls, rugby, Egypt, UFOs…). Identifying the theme is a vital part of the defoxing process. Today’s puzzle is composed of 16 answers.

  1. I must be peckish as I’ve got E4. STILTON and H12. NUTELLA
    Aaaand H6. HONEY

    Things you eat on other things ?

    Answers that can most likely be discarded as they read across (by & large):
    i3. FROOME, Chris – cyclist

  2. Unusually, none of the 16 answers have been fully or partially IDed yet. Realising this was a potentially tricky one, Roman made one 10-letter answer “pretty obvious”. Clearly, it wasn’t obvious enough!

    • I was just about to give up, but there is one:
      The only proper anagram for Fawlty Towers, seen in Series 2 Episode 5 ‘The Anniversary’

      Leaves K4. ICE
      Puzzled me for a while, but I guess it’s meant as building material not the substance that American TV/films comically seem preoccupied with the obtaining/provision of.
