LAT Thu. 8/17 Chuck Deodene

Possible Title: Bothersome Spasms

Theme: TIC added to random phrases yielding other phrases

Good Ones:
Berserk flutterer?   LUNATICMOTH
Trans-Alaska pipeline repairer?   ARCTICWELDER
Like one afflicted with {theme}   NERVOUS
Place with pint-size servings?   PUB
Pen name   BIC

By the Way:
Skewed   AWRY [In statistics, a skewed graph varies from the normal.  The heights of men in the world would create a normal curve, but a graph of Danish men would skew the graph to the taller side.  When awry indicates a twist to one side, skew would be a correct clue; when awry means something amiss (which it usually does), the clue would be wrong.]

Not sure SLIDECASE is a word found in most dictionaries; maybe it should.

Who knew?:
APU owns a Kwik-E-Mart. [I sound like a cultural snob, but I don't like references to cartoons.  I knew APU from the continual Xword references to The Simpsons, which I have never seen.  But I got to TV late in my childhood and never read the funnies, so ...]

Didn't know Rapa NUI either, so my geography is also lacking. 

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