Brilliant! It was fantastic the way you wove the title and the hint together. I actually thought the third clue was about drawing the short straw. (Come up short).

Oh and PS I forgot to mention I like the rhyme as well!

Good teaser. But I think the greatest thing was "post this 2 two teasers"! It would have been simple and faster with less characters to say 'to 2 teasers'. Nasty chat speak. lol
