Simpsons features NY Times Crossword

Simpsons News — Posted 28 Nov, 2008 by Scott

OK, we're pretty late on this, but if you caught the latest Simpsons episode a fortnight ago, Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words, you will have seen the special crossword in the New York Times that Homer 'commisioned' to prove his love for Lisa. Well it's a real crossword that appeared in the paper the same day the episode aired!

One of our readers Anthony Covino was kind enough to send us a scan of the real crossword, which you can see below. You can see the secret message by looking at the first letter of each clue. There's also a message in the diagonal of the completed crossword: "Dumb Dad sorry for his bet".
