WORDY WEDNESDAY #305
PENT WORDS 61
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 Heedlessly casual / "Tinder Creators Developing Bible App To Enable Swiping ____ On Undesirable Verses" (headline from Christian satirical news site The Babylon Bee)
2 Cook in the microwave / Drool
3 Dr. of kiddy lit fame / Bank that prevents flooding
4 Suspend loosely / "Curses!"
5 Slyly disparaging / Actress Merman
6 Declare / Panacea
7 Bellyache / Lurch
8 19th century Polish pianist / Grow weary
9 You have one when you sit / A yellow shade of orange, or a spice
10 "New Unitarian Universalist Hymnal Just Contains John Lennon's '____'" (The Babylon Bee headline) / Short
