WORDY WEDNESDAY #NUMBER
PENT WORDS 25
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, 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 Nash played by Eddie Murphy / Grid of multiplication results
2 Bring upon oneself / Soup-eating utensil
3 Lindsay of InAPPropriate Comedy (2013) / Singer-songwriter Bowie
4 City in which S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders is set / "____ my soul!"
5 16th century council site / They're spent in Spain
6 Land area / Victoria's Secret offering
7 Microsoft Edge, for one / The ____ Bully (2006 film)
8 Common salad dressing / "White & ____" (Weird Al song)
9 Fairy tale shoemaker's assistants/ ____ Mario Run (upcoming smartphone game)
10 Similar / Irish or English bird dog
