    Probably the easiest way to get this is to either use a USB keyboard or the Xbox chat pad (unconfirmed as to whether this works -- I don't have one). The in-game interface for entering letters is too tedious and time-consuming to give you a realistic shot at this achievement.

    Anyway, start up a Timed game on easy difficulty. If you're stumped on a clue, you can always pause the game to give you time to think. Once I started using a keyboard, I got this on my first try with a few seconds to spare.

    Edit: According to SuperEboy, the chatpad does work too. Thanks!

    Easier to use the x-box chatpad for this achievement. Start up a timed Monday puzzle. Pause the game at the beginning and use this website for the answers.
