Post by: magus on June 12, 2013, 08:48:02 AM
THEME:   actors playing fathers --- a propos for this time of year
Put in stitches   DARN   
Rite performed by a mohel   BRIS [I didn't know at first what mohel spelled until a got BRIS, which in my neighborhood was performed by a /moyl/.  (more sensitive breakfasters may not want to consider what a bris celebrates) ]   
Belief in one god   THEISM [It is conventional to use monotheism to distinguish it from polytheism, which would not see god capitalized; we do, of course, capitalize a monotheistic God.  Is it possible the editors don't know this, or are they trying to tell us something?]    
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
