Earthshaking news?   QUAKE
Company in Germany?   ZWEI [as in two’s company --- good thing the number only went to two in German --- past three and I’m a goner]
Theme: boxing terms added to beginning of phrases
Talkative “King of Country”?   JABBERINGSTRAIT [George and the Bering Strait]

NUCLEI crossed with CHROMOSOME [don’t often get scientific terms: odd that two of them crossed]

While there weren’t many puns, there were some simple words with clues that didn’t immediately come to mind:
Knack   FEEL
Ask for   SEEK
Big bunch   BODY
Like Coolidge, famously   TERSE [“Silent Cal”]


;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
