That was very hard
Nov 21, 2004

Hard but not impossible, but I couldnt do it.

Hmm.. I wonder. After I got the answer, I remembered that I've seen this one before (on this site). So it makes me wonder whether I would have got it otherwise (those, I definitely wouldn't have remembered the answer.. I had to figure it out).

It was pretty easy.. though the first time i couldn't do it at all! lol..

Hey, that was a good one! Never would have guessed that. Mind you, I KNEW all that--well, except for the sea dragon thing. Oh well, it was a very good teaser. I added it to my favourites. The poem was very good too, even though you rhymed 'be' with 'be'. Hehe.

That was impossible for me. The title messed with me oh so bad. I was clueless.

Like the famous "fish that got away" this one swam right past me! The title really threw me. Good teaser.
