WORDY WEDNESDAY #325
PENT WORDS 65
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 Meat-roasting rod / "'Celebrities Should Stay Out Of Politics,' Says Man With Framed Portrait Of Ronald ____" (headline from Christian satirical news site The Babylon Bee)
2 Hill of sand / A deceptive type of malware
3 Protective sheet of waterproof canvas, say / Some estates
4 A three-dimensional shape / A two-dimensional shape
5 Undue speediness / Substance in varnish
6 Common nightwear / Color
7 A type of printer / Parks of civil rights activism
8 Number of different pentominoes that exist if rotations and reflections are counted as the same / Ill-mannered child
9 Seagoing vessels / Martini garnish, often
