Good Anagrams - but the April agony hint had me completely confused - I live in Australia and taxes are paid after June 30th...

The Nutcracker is not a great ballet. Tchaikovsky himself hated it.

fairly clever, but it seems like these were found somewhere, rather than created by a braingler. my two cents....

Good one! I'm starting to like anagrams more and more. The only one that stumped me was "Seek a phrase." How DARE you use a tricky hint to throw me off! Just kidding. I was thinking along the lines of a court jester and trying to remember another word or words for that. Anyway, great teaser!

A really nice teaser. I got the soup and income tax right away, but (my bad) didn't have time this morning to work out the rest. Thanks for a clever puzzle.

I did not try to unscramble because it takes too long and it is late, but I did get three without unscrambling as the clues gave it away.

Well I am number 3 and it is only 7:30 AM. I think they go up in what is the middle of the night for some of us. I am pretty sure BABE has said she is on the WEST COAST so so if it is "late" there, it is the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT on the east coast. And only getting on toward morning in Europe, where many Users will be too busy getting ready for work and /or school to bother getting on the site until later.
The comments are not what drives the site, I myself am on here several times a day every day (playing games, working on my own quizzes etc) but only comment on about half the teasers or quizzes I do.
We need to recruit new people, not worry about who is or is not commenting on things.
Why comment again on something I commented on 3 years ago?

Apr 29, 2014

Well said HABS. But as far as the teaser goes. It was very outdated. I don't think Bush and Gore duel anymore.
