Hints/Tips re: most paired up,- except the redundant ones | Comment 2 of 3 |
(In reply to most paired up by Charlie)

Your solution is perfect, - my puzzle is not.

Initially I've created 20 mismatches and in the process of eliminating

the marginal/dubious pairs those two somehow were not filtered out.

Regarding my intentions - "stick (in the)mud" and Amy Tau- should be withdrawn: 1st is not a "couple of words" and the 2nd is not famous enough.

So, considering  the puzzle as "15 mismatches"- your solution is impeccable.

Btw, how long did it take to match the pairs? Had fun?
