In this teaser, you will be given rows, each with three clues. The answer to the second clue of any row will consist of the letters -- usually rearranged -- of the answer to the first clue in that row, minus one letter. The answer to the third clue, likewise, will consist of the letters from the second answer, minus one. If you put each dropped letter into the box following the word from which it was dropped, reading down the two columns of boxes will give a phrase, or two terms that are somehow related.

The iceman cometh!!! That's just brilliant that you put that batman reference in there, that batman film is so cheesy and bad but you can't stop watching

Haha, funny you should mention it because I've never even seen Batman. "The Iceman Cometh" is originally a play from the early 1900s. Don't ask me what it's about, cause I have no idea I have only heard of it because there was an episode of Digimon by the same title, so I looked it up once to see why it was called that.
