This puzzle:

Rows: 21, Columns: 21 Words: 138, Blocks: 72 Missing: none. Spans: 1 This is puzzle # 124 for Mr. Berry. NYT links: Across Lite
Jim Horne notes:

Each rebus square is "normal" in one direction but in the other direction, you have to pronounce the letters individually. So, for example, 24 Down is BED KNOBS but 31 Across is TOOTH DK meaning TOOTH DECAY.
