    This must be one of those British-style crossword puzzles with puns and clever wordplay. I think you have to grow up drinking the same waters as Shakespeare to work them out.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    BAH! fine...fine...

    I was going for Jov as Jupiter and Callisto as the answer as she was transformed into a bear.



    <edit> oh yeah and Callisto is "by" Jupiter </edit>
