WORDY WEDNESDAY #55
PENT WORDS 11
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example above, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.
ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 Japan's and Canada's are red and white / O'Hara who voiced Belle in Beauty and the Beast
2 Rick of Saddleback Church / Nuisance
3 Employ / Acceptable
4 Emulates Romeo, perhaps / It hangs off a roof
5 Word on a wanted poster / What a closed fist might represent
6 Lynde of The Hollywood Squares / Mistake-accompanying interjection
7 Be a temptress / Trendy
8 New England team, colloquially / One in a bank, perhaps
9 Move a large piece of furniture, say / With The, film starring John Wayne as Davy Crockett
10 Mock, as an opponent / "God ____ the USA"

PENTOMINOES:
* HALF OF THE FINAL ANSWER
* THE OTHER HALF OF THE FINAL ANSWER
* ____ 2000 (short-lived game show with The Creature instead of Bankrupt)
* Robin Hood's weapon of choice
* Ganders, for example
* Walk casually
* Arduous journeys
* Sag
* Tear producers
* Destruction and chaos
* Weapon with a spiked ball on a chain on a stick
* ____ Chocula
* Posthumous Janis Joplin album
* Santiago is its capital
* "The ____ that refreshes" (old Coca-Cola slogan)
* A sheriff might have one
* Nation bordering Portugal
* Sum
* "____ in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?"
* Macaroni, for example

PATREON UPDATE!
With 11 patrons giving $52 per month, I have reached my first Milestone Goal, and now I will start posting an extra Wordy Wednesday on the fifth Wednesday of every month with five Wednesdays! Those of you keeping score at home might note that this means, for the first time in this blog's history, there will be two Pent Words puzzles in the same month! Patrons also gain early access to the Wordy Wednesday puzzles and exclusive monthly Patron Puzzles, so if you want to make a monthly contribution to my tip jar, don't be shy. And if you don't want to make such a contribution, don't worry, I promise to keep these sales pitches minimal and only mostly annoying. :)


COMING NEXT WEEK. . .
* A very special puzzle that I hope Ryan Faley gets "around" to solving. (Speaking of Ryan Faley, his latest puzzle is a second Charadagrams inspired by one of my previous Wordy Wednesdays, so you may be interested in it.)


Until next time, yappy solving!
