New Word Sudoku (Swifty Sudoku!) Puzzles for Saturday, 11/22/2014

Mutton makes men macho," bleated Tom sheepishly.
A Tom Swifty is an adverbial pun that simultaneously describes a speaker and refers to the speaker's statement. The name comes from the Tom Swift book series for young readers. The authors were roundly criticized for overusing adverbs and descriptive phrases, so that Tom rarely said anything without a qualifying adverb. A Tom Swifty pun is a parody of this style that will make you groan out loud.
