Possible Title:  That's Not What I Meant

Theme: Reinterpreted words

Good Ones:
Buccaneer   TOPPRICEFORCORN [buck an ear]
Propaganda   RESPECTFULGOOSE [proper gander: in Brooklyn it would be “propa ganda” --- if we knew what a gander was]
IV-covered areas   ERS
Cow poke   PROD [note two words]
Big-grin borders   EARS [“grin from ear to ear”]
Pronoun that’s a homonym of a song   HIM
Under-cover duds   PJS [pajamas in bed]

By the Way:
Hilarious   ARIOT [generally articles are avoided in clues --- in this case a good clue would be “You’re ___, Alice”]

Some Nits to Pick:
Bury the hatchet   AGREE [Perhaps, but they are far apart.  The clue means to stop fighting --- there is agreement to stop; but would declaring war on each other also be “to agree”?  The clue should be “accord,” but not in the sense of “peace accord” because that means “peace agreement,” not agreement in general, which is what AGREE means.  If you understand this, please let me know what it says as I am now confused.

RATING:  ;D ;D ;D Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
