AID ALLIGATOR

gladitorial

A STOIC ARCHER - two words

(interesting that CAESAR is in here too. Along with OSTRICH, but that's just a red herring)

Addendum: Sorry, that should have been "gladiatorial". My error.

The "lub-dub" of blood through aortic arches sounds like a MUTANT OPERA.

Nice, but...I'm going to invoke the doctrine of "the right answer is what's written on the paper in my upper-right-hand desk drawer" and ask you to put MUTANT OPERA on hold for the moment while you look for the (other) right answer.

(Besides, there's nothing about gladiatorial or Caesar or archers in the aortic arch!)

Yes, indeed. It hadn't struck me that you would spell it differently.

Speaking of emu's...leavings, if you'll allow German I can construct
"SCHEISSMUT," a person with very little valor or courage...

or if you maybe misread an H as an N we could have
MUSTINESS...

or if you venture into non-adult vocabulary I give you a way of judging how pliable your mud or clay or Play-Doh is, and then you can say which is
SMUSHIEST...

What's that you say? That's not what you had in mind? Why am I not surprised?

Surely you don't mean Panama or the middle section of the thyroid gland and such like -
ISTHMUSES? Is that a real plural?

edit: According to Onelook.com it is. Oh well. I like SHEISSMUT better as the answer, only I don't think I have the nerve to say so...

Because "isthmuses" reminds me of platypus, another word ending in -us with an English plural, not a Latin one:

ALARMIPUS -- a platypus who has been trained to wake you up in the morning
