Happy, played *The Witness*? (9)

ddef

Happy = SATISFIED

Played The Witness = math joke. In math, a "witness" is a mathematical object that makes a statement true, or "satisifies" it. Played here is in the sense of "acted as".

Certainly not different etymologies but maybe the defs are different enough.
