Here's The Catch...

Question

Posted · Report post

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

level measure = steady rate

Mediterranean fair = Venetian blond

slow freeze = Creeping chill

Asian bow = Chinese/Japanese noodle?

fruit slice = lemon wedge? (too literal, I think)

purchase order = climbing rank?

beyond weary = Past gone

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.

that's the ticket. have a different one for your second guess above but think the connection between total and worth is as valid as some of mine.

Buy the rule?

Berry the hatchet?

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

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...

hmm - had not considered that. can see the connection as in order/reserve/... not my intended but would say qualifies as an alternative.
