Sun., 8/4
« on: August 05, 2013, 08:35:17 AM »
THEME:   X removed from phrases yielding new phrases
   
GOOD ONES:     
Unexpected affection {& theme}   STOLEN-KISSES [X, removed from phrases, is a sign for a kiss; hence, "stolen"]   
All theme phrases are clever, especially HEAVYWEIGHT-BOERS for its extra dimension of sound.   
One making bread   EARNER [I'd go with "Bread maker"]   
Mane character in Narnia   ASLAN [lion's mane]   
Much-kneaded treatment?   MASSAGE   
Stick in a box   MATCH [not the verb]   
   
BTW:   
Amen   TOO + TRUE ["too true" has a negative connotation ("life sucks") while "amen" has a positive connotation ("life is grand")      
   
ELEVE and ELLAS ("they" in Spanish) are never used in English, but ELLAS could be clued "Fitzgerald and Grasso."   
   
   
RATING: ;D    ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
