Andrea Carla Michaels notes: Another partners theme, but with threesomes...but since WYNKEN, BLYKEN AND NOD was longer than 15, I thought it might be fun to list one of the trio and have the solver come up with the other two. I envisioned this as a call and response between constructor and solver.

Snap!
