I'm impressed. I needed the hint to figure it out, but I thought it was a great idea for a teaser!

Was about to look at the hint when I noticed Woodrow Wilson (probably the easiest one), and that gave the whole game away. Very clever and fun, though.

Good Idea. Got Answer.

Thanx, too tired to write more

Ha! got it without looking at the hint. Very good, keep them coming!

It seemed impossibly difficult at first. Then pronouncing "wren,war" as "Renoir" got me off to thinking about artists, then saying each aloud and backward to "Warren"....and the jig was up! Nicely conceived puzzle!

I LOVED it!! i would have never came up with that!!! that is sooooo cool!
teri12265us*
May 27, 2007

Almost had me. At first I was stumped, nearly gave up, but then I figured you hid within and started saying them out loud, moving one letter at a time. Once I got Truman, it was like "DUH!!!".

Thanks. I was starting to doze off there and you awoke the brain cells.
breathesunshineAus*
May 27, 2007

Wow, I couldn't figure out how to do this one at all, even with the hint. As soon as I read the first couple of answers though I couldn't believe that I had missed it!!! Good teaser!

May 28, 2007

The hint through me off. When i thought of a harry true man I Immeidatel thought of Abraham Licoln who had facial hare and was an honest guy. So i came to the conclusion that all of the things described Lincoln in some way or another. Oh well, I loved it anyway.

What a Fun way to help with remembering the presidents. Great one!

Ho Hum, another old repeat.
wordmama*
May 29, 2010

grrr, doehead--I'd never seen it before!

Before that detour, I was going to say: I never looked at the hint or even the answer b/c it was easy-peasy but way fun! I got it from yard rich, son nick, and the rest fell quickly into place. Very enjoyable; congrats!!

Australian Prime minister..

You-List-Us Grant? "Sees lice you" would have been closer, but still a bit iffy.

May 29, 2013

I agree with spikeplus4
bababawhompAus*
May 29, 2013

Ahhh didn't think of that. I agree Ulysses Grant was a little bit of a stretch but overall it's a really nice teaser.

Interesting teaser. I saw it with Harry Truman right away so found the puzzle quite easy to figure out. I did not read hint until after I solved it and glad I did not as it would have given it away immediately.

I was stumped, but once I read the hint, it was easy! It was also quite enjoyable. Thanks for a fun brain exercise!
