NY Times Puzzle - Thursday, August 2, 2012

Theme: Duck, Duck, Duck… Goose

A rebus where five squares get the duck and one square gets the goose.

This puzzle was fun. I got a little hung up thinking there would be more than one goose square. But once I realized that it was all about the ducks, I got those answers quite easily.

1A. Vulnerable one = Sittind Duck
8D. Something short found in an alley = Duck Pin

14D. Kind of session = Lame Duck
26A. Dish often served with hoisin sauce = Peking Duck

22A. Make like Chuck Berry = Duck Walk
22D. A cinch = Duck Soup

36D. Toast, with “a” = Dead Duck
53A. Disney character with long eyelashes = Daisy Duck

50A. Platypus-like, in a way = Duck Billed
50D. Centerpiece of many a park = Duck Pond

56D. Animal in a Kipling story = Mongoose
68A. Relatives of currants = Gooseberries
