A fun Sunday theme today of clues that pretend to start a job listing, and are finished by ordinary sayings that are reinterpreted in a punny way. My favorite might be 80A: Need cruise ship band to ... ROCKTHEBOAT, but 89A: Need orchestra conductor to ... FACETHEMUSIC isn't bad either. And, well, 114A: Need blackjack dealer to ... HITTHEDECK is funny, too. Wait, wait... I forgot about my real favorite - 37D: Need stunt pilot to ... FLIPTHEBIRD. HAH! Hi-larious. And speaking of that one, it's nice that a couple of the themers go vertically. And did you notice the Easter egg (CANDYEGG?) bonus theme at 106D: Fill a position (HIRE)? Heh.
We are not BESET by much junk today. There's the dreaded ELHI, the odd ALGA (16D: Bit of marine life), and the suffix ETTE. BLATS (39D: Calf cries) is missing an E, and DODO isn't quite what I think of when I hear "109D: Dullard," but I'm not going to get all HETUP about it. Overall, this is pretty clean. Especially for a Sunday. I say thumbs up.
