TOSSEDSALAD! Yes, I love this kind of theme, even when I had it figured out about half-way down the grid. Great to have five solid theme answers with different anagrams of "salad". Four of the five have the anagram across two words, all except PINACOLADAS - I'm inclined to let that pass. Turns out there are 60 possible permutations of this letter string, so it would definitely be too much to include all possibilities.
Plus also we get DOUGLASADAMS in full, one of my favorite authors of all time.

- "What's so unpleasant about being drunk? Ask a glass of water."
1A: Funny Groucho or Harpo (MARX) didn't need the first word in the clue. I give it a B-.
I don't have too much else to say on the matter. I think it was a good Monday puzzle. Happy Memorial Day!
