Less specific than general
the golden ones are chosen then crushed,
With the heart of a cane
they are then matched.
Rub salt in the wounds
of this refined group,
Then, most importantly,
recruit some fun guys to the troop.
After some time spent together in the presence of drink,
a partnership is formed and our needs met, we think.
You may now turn up the heat
to submit us to the test,
and we will arise as one,
to be the best!

What are we?





What Next?

Hi:
That was a handsome teaser. I thought it to be something edible. You know I do not spend much time on these teaser. After the first or the second reading, if I do not get the answer - which almost always I fail - I click on the answer. With regards quack - quack

Good teaser.
don't care much for the "less pecific than general" clue...how would one get colonel out of that?
The others are good.

Wow, you stumped me. Great job, keep 'em coming like that!

Hey Vikingboy. Fair comment ... I was going through it after submitting, but only picked that one up a bit late. Should have been "below the General" - colonel is one level below general in rank

nice one, but i remember seeing that one in a book i read. it was really easy for me because of that. keep it up though!

I didn't like this one too much. Some of the clues were really stretching it. I was thinking the answer was bread, but the clues were so confusing, I started second-guessing myself! Sorry, just my opinion... don't take it to heart...
FulanitoGM*sv*

Also, the last question, "What are we?" doesn't match up with the actual answer. I was thinking the answer was going more than one of something, and it turns out to be a recipe for bread... I know, ticky-tack, but again, just one guy's opinion...

Thanks for the comments, that was my first teaser. Sorry Elvenb, that wouldn't have been in a book, I made it up. With some more practice, hopefully they'll become a bit more clear and to the point.

I know there are a few loopholes. Was a bit too hasty in getting it submitted ... first time and all! Will patch up the holes better in future.
Thanks for the comments
