WORDY WEDNESDAY #140
PENT WORDS 28
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 Ray of stand-up / 4 years, for Obama
2 Shorten, as a dictionary / Kerfuffle
3 Loose rope / The Atlantic, for one
4 ____ depravity / Peter of Casablanca
5 Antagonistic / "I ____ with my little eye. . ."
6 Singer with the albums 19, 21, and 25 / Sicko director Michael
7 It might be transmitted via a snake bite / Pleasant sight to a desert traveler
8 Jamaican music genre / Claw-like appendages
9 Item for a football player, but not a soccer player / Barbara of I Dream of Jeannie
10 Disinclined, as to risk / Replete (with)
