New Word Sudoku (Swifty Sudoku!) Puzzles for Saturday, 1/24/2015

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.

Tom is watching this one from the prosecutor's bench...
