A Chairde: I enjoy puzzles of all sorts (perhaps that is one reason I am studying Irish!) I just finished an anacrostic puzzle whose answer is the following: "The subjunctive is a linguistic back breaker, a parallel zone used to indicate that whatever is happening is hypothetical and might happen in the future or might not because maybe it's only what you want or demand or desire and not actually what's real." This was merely interesting until I got to clue G, and the answer was 'Irish Stew." I'm still chuckling.
