This one appeared in the Savannah Morning News crossword puzzle for 8/21/06. The clue was “Baffling” and the answer could only be “mindbobbling.” My Webster’s Unabridged doesn’t list that as an alternative for “mindboggling,” but it may in a few years; Google gives about 35,000 hits for “mind bobbling” as opposed to over 6 million for “mind boggling.”
