NYT Sunday Puzzle - August 9, 2015

Title: Help Wanted

Theme: Each theme clue begins like a “Help Wanted” ad seeking to fill a position for a particular profession. Answers are familiar phrases that complete the ad by describing the job in a silly way.

23A. Need rural real estate investor to… buy the farm.
25A. Need retail marketer to… fill the gap.
45A. Need cocktail waitress to… call the shots.
56A. Need bakery assistant to… take the cake.
80A. Need cruise ship band to… rock the boat.
89A. Need orchestra leader to… face the music.
114A. Need blackjack dealer to… hit the deck.
116A. Need magician to… do the trick.
37D. Need stunt pilot to… flip the bird.
41D. Need control tower operator to… clear the air.

The theme was quite obvious, and I didn’t have much difficulty coming up with the answers. Overall, an easy Sunday puzzle.
