Saturday Word Play- Chicken Soup Souls Double Clues


For this week's Saturday Word Play, we look at souls targeted by the popular Chicken Soup series. I'm sure you've seen them: Chicken Soup For The Mother's Soul, Chicken Soup For The Teenager's Soul, etc. Surprisingly, in all their 100s of titles, and more than 112 million books sold, they've yet to do a Chicken Soup For The Blogger's Soul. Below are 10 souls that they have targeted. I've given you a number of clues to match the number of letters in that particular soul. The first letters of the answers will spell out the soul in question. For instance, if you had these clues:

- a social insect
- a type of make-up
- a mined product
- a phantom
- an adhesive
- a Christmas character
- a rodent

you could figure it out as (B)ee, (L)ipstick, (O)il, (G)host, (G)lue, (E)lf, (R)at to give you BLOGGER. I've made yours more difficult by using each clue twice. But then I've made it easier by giving you all the answers at the top.

Now, Name That Soul!

As always, feel free to answer all 10 at home, but please answer only one in the comment section so that nine more people can play along.

Pooker and Raidergirl: Great job. I was starting to think this one scared a few people away! Thanks to you two, it gets a little easier with your correct answers eliminated.
