WORDY WEDNESDAY #80
PENT WORDS 16
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 below, 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 ____ and Jill (notorious 2011 movie) / Make tidy
2 Word of ____ / Drench
3 Main course / Four years, for Obama
4 One with a crystal ball, perhaps / Ravioli and such
5 Word in a John Stuart Mill title / Long period of time
6 ____ of Eden / Kitchen fixtures
7 It may be red or white / 60's cartoon hero Roger
8 Interfere with / Naked
9 Showed happiness / Richard of Pretty Woman
10 Magician Burton / Christopher of Back to the Future
