Possible Title: The I’s Have It

Theme: phrases containing rhymes of /I/

Some Nits to Pick:
Idiom with “as” in the middle   SIMILE [As far as I’m concerned, the entry is too presumptive, as both you and I know.]

Penultimate planet   URANUS [why this clue when there is doubt about Pluto’s being a planet?]

Full of baloney   LYING [not necessarily.  The idiom connotes “incorrectness.”  Lying adds an element of deceit.  Someone is full of baloney not because he is deceitful but because he is in error.  So is a lying person full of baloney?  I say no because liars are not innocent whereas those who are full of baloney are just wrong.  But in the end it is subjective: if I'm wrong it's not because I'm lying; it's because I'm full of baloney.]

Triangular sail   JIB [Yes, it’s triangular as is the mainsail, the storm sail, and a host of others.  This is like cluing “Walking mammal” for COATI; most mammals walk.]

RATING:   ;D Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
