Didn't get the tennis guy or the university, but I sure enjoyed solving the others. I had CONVEYOR WORKER for the assembly line person. Conveyor belt therefore conveyor worker...

Thanks for a great teaser!

Good job, Fish! I got them all except world record and Fort Worth--I guess that's not toooo bad.... Thanks a bunch.

More, please. I love word games and puzzles. Got all but the university city (tried to make it Corpus Christi, but it just didn't work out). Got half of the first one, but couldn't make out the factory part. The others were a breeze. I don't know anything about sports, but I got the tennis one because I was a radio announcer during the years he was big on the courts, and I even knew how to spell his name!

aw crap I missed the hint... hate that. I should be more careful when I'm getting these through email, i see the answer before getting the chance to click the hint.

Anyways, I got 3,5,7,8 entire, I got half of 1 (didn't think of factory!) and 2 (didn't think of liquor!). No clue on the other two. I calculate my score to be 62.5%. Yay me.

Oct 24, 2009

well doehead congrats on finally figuring out that this is not the new list. now maybe you can figure out how to go to it instead of complaining that this isn't new.

NICE1!!!

Oct 24, 2009

Without the hints, I would have made a low score. But with them, I nearly made 100 (I came up with floor worker instead of factory worker). So I rated the puzzle in between hard and easy.

I could not come up with liquor for the corn liquor answer. This is a good teaser, I enjoyed it.

Like most everyone else, I enjoyed this one and did pretty good. I missed one and a half. Could only think of one name for the tennis player.
cutebugAus*
Oct 24, 2012

These constant old repeats must recORd bORing thoughts from the long time briangle followers. I notice that the shammo-doehead battle goes on.

For #1 I got "Bored Worker".
