David Astle compiles the crossword in The Age. Astle is reviled by all for his idiotic clues, but this one pilfers the baked confection.
By the way, people who do cryptic crosswords do the crossword. On the other hand, people who do quick crosswords just do the crossword. They are oafs. There are crosswords and there are crosswords, as I’m sure you are aware.
Update! Some good eggs in comments. It turns out Astle's so-called answer was "If you want to make an omelet you have to break some eggs". That's a bit rich for me. The Phrase Thesaurus version is closer to how things should look; "You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs." It's ridiculous to butcher a phrase to fit the crossword. And since when do us Strayans (Astle is one, too) spell omelettes sans te? Next we'll be changing tires and picking our favorite colors.
And it's not just me. Here's a letter to The Age. Mind you, it's a wussy affair, what with the self-esteem whine. Better to grab Astle and force-feed him the crossword page.
