Note: All the crossword submitted to Puzzlers' Cave are designed, created, and submitted on the own time of our members. Our members are generally amateur crossword setters and as such their crosswords may contain factual inaccuracies and occasional spelling mistakes. The commenting and mistake reporting systems allow you to describe problems, to supply positive feedback, or to prove construction criticism to the submitter. The comments system is not for supplying abusive or unhelpful comments.

Reporting Mistakes: If you want to reporting a mistake with one of the clues or words in this crossword rather that leaving a comment then you should use the Report Mistake button. This will leave a message for the submitter prompting them to resolve the mistake.

"..."Nip in the bud" is derived from the practice of removing plant buds to prevent particular shoots from growing. "Nip in the butt" is meaningless...."
