For Crossword Puzzle Fans

I rarely do crossword puzzles myself, but I know they’re a very popular pastime.  They were even the storyline of an episode on The Simpsons.

I mention this to share one of the most diabolical crossword-puzzle clues I’ve ever found.  I’m fond of using it in the classroom when I substitute teach and things get dull.

This is the clue for a five-letter word —

H I J K L M N O

 

 

The five-letter word is “water”, and if you didn’t recognize it, the clue is a play on water’s chemical formula — the letters H to O, or H2O.

Maybe it’s good that I don’t work many crossword puzzles.
