Chain letters?   MTNS [clever but tough]

Some like em’ tough.  I do, but I have some questions:
Like protozoa   MOTILE [Isn’t this true of all living things?]
Pulp figure   DAME [In pulp fiction we find every titled personage, so I don’t see the particular connection.]
Tiny paper clip, e.g.   ICON [This is tough; it’s that annoying helper in Microsoft programs.  But there are so many icons that it seems the only way to get this answer is by answering those around it.  If I used “car” to clue “token” wouldn’t that be a bit unsporting? In Monopoly, of course, it’s easy.]
Mess up, as a punch line   MISTIME [Messing up the punch line suggests getting the words wrong more than mistiming.  I’d go with “Missing {or “Not hitting} a change-up.”]
PUTABIDON [Is that the expression or is it simply “bid on”?]
What is Trillian and what are IMS?  Guess I’ve allowed too much of the electronic world pass me by. (At least I knew Droid APPS.)
“Chestnuts roasting…” co-writer   TORME [Isn’t it wonderful that two of the best Christmas songs were written by Jews!  Irving Berlin wrote “White Christmas.”  Do you think today we have as much unity?]

Akkadian king…   SARGON [“That’s ancient history!”] :D

RATING:   ;D ;D Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
