Here's The Catch...


Question

former jerk

level measure

Mediterranean fair

slow freeze

forward women

fruit slice

Asian bow

punch clock

total mass

beyond weary

purchase order

utter crap

Think this one might be quite the challenge. Similar to some others from before and picking up where left off...kinda

EDIT: added italics

hey hey WOD - feel the need to apologize and offer a tidbit of advice - consider holding off posting that post-Xmas-party-word-puzzle until morning. anyway, this one's similar to the one linked to in the OP and the two others linked to in that OP's OP. my head hurts. three word answers to evey line of the puzzle with the common word in between. there is a little twist to this one tho which is also hinted at in the title and affects those now italicized words of the clues.

While it isn't correct, I wanna point out 'Jew's Time' for punch clock. =P

you just had to sqeeze that in, dintcha

Buy the rule?

Berry the hatchet?

Think I'm really pushing the second one but might as well give it a shot.

hey Tha - no, it was me who was pushing that second one and you saved the dei. well done. no hard feelings? as for your first guess, that's not it (both cluewords are italicized)

Mediterranean fair = sea the light

former jerk = past the buck

punch clock = Awl the time

slow freeze = brake the ice

yes4 :thumbsup:

More guesses:

total mass = all the weigh

forward women = fore the birds

purchase order = buy the sort? (sword)

Or, hmm, sometimes someone "bawls" out an order...

you almost had me there on that last one *cough* - too funny. the other two are spot on.

purchase order - Bye-bye

utter crap - Bull s*** (utter --> udder?)
