Tip Our Hats: Guys That Can Complete A Crossword Puzzle In One Sitting

Watching this whiz kid go to town on the Times' crossword is a sight to behold. He barrels through it with ease, only stopping every tenth clue to work out a tricky one, which he figures out in about ten seconds. We just sit there, stunned at his skill. When he finishes, he reads the lame punchline to the puzzle's theme out loud to us with satisfaction. Is there anything this guy can't do?

It's even hotter when he fills it out in ink. That's some crossword cojones, right there. That level of recklessness is the normal dude's equivalent to doing a handstand on a moving van or getting a jokey tattoo on a prominent place on his body; it's just crazy to us!

So, guys who can compete a crossword puzzle in one sitting, we tip our hats to you. You're the samurai of the Sunday paper and that definitely blows our hair back. For serious.

Somewhat diminished, I'm guessing, if the guy does it on his blackberry.

I do multiple sudoku puzzles daily but in pencil. Is that impressive?
