WORDY WEDNESDAY #200
PENT WORDS 40
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 Mercury, for one / Emcee

7 Down the wrong path / Make coffee, perhaps
8 Me, Myself & ____ (Jim Carrey flick) / "Life's Been Good" singer Joe
