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.

Nice teaser ace but a little too hard.

Thanks stevie, sorry if some of mine are too hard, I'll try to make them a little more easy sometimes.

Don't people only have 1 aorta or is it my mistake?

Posted by eighsse on Mar 19, 2015

Yes, that's correct. And that's why I wasn't too fond of that clue/answer myself. But it's still absolutely a word; many aortas exist.
