Some bones and -mancy words in this one, as well as some animal-related ones. Personally, I think 'C' (Hard) and 'C' Insane are easier than 'A' and 'B' (Hard) and (Insane), but I still tried to gradient the difficulty as best as I could. Letter D comes out next Friday as usual. Have fun!

I thought the standard spelling for that type of bread was "challah."

Thanks, Thalia. Seems 'chalot' is actually the plural of 'challah', a singular loaf of the stuff. Changed the quiz a little to incorporate that.
