Aarghonautsus*
Sep 08, 2005

That was fun and I got them all!! We used to make up things like that when I was a kid: We called them "stinky pinkys" (or "stink pinks" if they were one syllable and "stinkity pinkities" if they were three syllables). Where that came from I know not.
jcann*us*
Sep 09, 2005

I got them all--enjoyed it. Back in my college days (a long time ago) these were very popular. We called them "hink pinks","hinky-pinkies",
or "hinkitty-pinkitties." This brought back memories.

I really enjoyed this puzzle. For the last one I got "lock shock" as I read 'close' as in closing a door. Marie
marschie*il*
Sep 08, 2006

I got 'near scare' and was disappointed that it didn't rhyme precisely.

i did'nt get the first one "sly fly" but i got all the rest got glad lad first then strong song, sly fly was a hard one for me. this is an excellent teaser keep up the good work. i loved this ond.........
coachpisco*
Sep 08, 2006

It was fun. I like the teasers when they are "doable" and not impossible. Thanks. It was fun.
Badger*us*
Sep 08, 2006

Most popped right away. Number one was a little trickier for me. I had lots of possible answers including "trick tick" and "hider spider"! Stuck with it for a few minutes and got it. Fun teaser, and my winning streak is back! Uh, one... Thanks for submitting.
bradon182001*us*
Sep 08, 2006

Have to agree with Coachpisco.Fun and not out of anyone's reach to get at least some of them. There were certainly several different answers that would fit, so if you didn't get the same answer you woulddn't have to be wrong.
shawneeo*us*
Sep 08, 2006

Yes, I like seeing the "alternative" answer, many of which I think are valid. I got "joy boy", for "happy boy". Altho it didnt say you couldn't use the same word, I couldn't think of anything better. I never think of the word "lad", and that was the key to another daily teaser a while ago! Also, I got "fit hit" for the "muscular tune", altho I did feel that "strong song" was a better answer. Thanks!

Sep 08, 2006

Nice work! Easy but fun...Happy Birthday
rrn0rrnrrnY*us*
Sep 08, 2006

The preface was so right too. I got all but one instantly, but had to think a bit before getting strong song. I noticed the comments are a year apart mostly. Was this the daily on your bday last year too? Or maybe you submitted near your bday. Doesn't matter. Good teaser and have a very Happy Birthday!
Pizzazz2uAus*
Sep 08, 2006

Definitely fun! Totally, a mind stirring teaser! This should get anyone going in the morning. Not too easy, not too tough, yet witty enough to challenge ALL WTG!
zaya*
Sep 08, 2006

Great fun, need some harder ones though.
suganue*us*
Sep 08, 2006

I like this one. It was a little easy, but apparently not too easy because I did not get..strong, song.. . Great teaser, and Happy Birthday

Sep 08, 2006

Darn it, I could not get SLY FLY! Fun teaser.

For muscular song I had "built lilt'.
cleothemuse*us*
Sep 08, 2006

Easy!
Club33*us*
Sep 08, 2006

This was fun, we used to do these when I was a kid too, we also called them hink-pinks or hinky-pinkies...

Lots of fun and not TOO easy. I really liked sly fly!

Happy Birthday!!
MurfQ*ca*
Sep 08, 2006

Excellent teaser. Like someone else, I thought close fright was near scare and was really disappointed that it didn't rhyme like it was supposed to. Should not have assumed one bad apple and kept at it it a while longer and I might have thought of the correct answer. Oh well. Got the rest of em without a problem so it's not so bad.
MurfQ*ca*
Sep 08, 2006

Oh, and Happy Birthday!

largo40*
Sep 08, 2006

Great Fun. I got them all but I had to carry them around for a while and give it some thought over a coffee break. Sneaky insect was my most difficult. I wanted it to be some kind of pest.

Thanks for the fun!!!!
lindquist_25Aus*
Sep 08, 2006

Absolutely loved it!!!! I got all but one...
ifarwe99
Sep 08, 2006

I got them all except the first one - I thought of "incognito mosquito" instead of sly fly! Fun teaser.

Sep 08, 2006

i wish these things could entertain me as much as all of you... i'm easily amused, but ummmmmm.... no

WHICH ONES WERE THE MORE CHALLENGING ONES?
QrystalAca*
Sep 12, 2006

I personally struggled a moment longer than the others when trying to come up with strong song ... the alternatives discussed in comments above were great, though! Good job to all!!

and WOW on incognito mosquito!!! That's awesome!!!!
Badger*us*
Sep 22, 2006

I have to second that, Qrystal! "Incognito Mosquito" was great, and totally hillarious!

Sep 08, 2012

Well, that was a fun one! It made me laugh. I got scolded by cutebug when I was negative and now lately she has been negative, but I won't scold her. It just makes me smile also.
HABS2933Aca*
Sep 08, 2012

Got all of them but "sly fly" for some reason that one escaped me. This was a fun one to figure out.
cutebugAus*
Sep 08, 2012

Sorry BABE,I didn't know I was negative. And why did you refer to me as a female? Maybe I'm a male!!!! Now you are confused!!!!
Maggiethe8th*us*
Sep 08, 2012

I forgot to go back to figure out sly fly- I do love the feeling when things pop into place though!
iggy39Aus*
Sep 08, 2012
