American's overseas? American's WHAT overseas? WHAT American's WHAT overseas?

Or do you perhaps mean:
Americans overseas?

What on earth is that apostrophe doing there? How can we expect people to get this sort of thing right if people like you don't!?

Good teaser for the most part. I was confused by the American's overseas also, so didn't get that one. Otherwise, good teaser.

I sadly have no brain teaser talent. But it was pretty creative of you to think of it like that. Keep up the good work.

Good teaser, very creative. Thank you for a brain workout. Also didn't think the American's overseas was a good clue, I'm sure you could have gone after a description such as 'pulls sharply', or something of that nature. But still clever.

That was good

I see Anagrams and find them
difficult (for Me) so I didn't really try. It's a hodiday here 2day do I took an anagram vacation.

Kudos to everbody who got the answers.

I only couldn't unscramble the beaver thing. That apostrophe in number 6 threw me off, too.

Also was thrown off by
American's overseas...

I loved this teaser. It took me a minute to try and solve it while at work. But I got them all. Eager beaver made me chuckle. I too was originally thinking of the animal. Thanks for the fun!!!

Thanks for a great one! Really keeps the neurons exercised.

It may sound picky to point out the misused apostrophe, but it did matter to a lot of us old-fashioned grammaticians...

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful! I'm not even an anagram person and I loved this teaser!

Got them with just the right amount of figuring, but beaver had me thinking of the animal . Again-loved it THX

I loved that one, too! Thanks
Hate to admit I missed 2 because that's

Enjoyed it again. With my terrible memory the reruns seem new to me.

The first time around, I didn't like this teaser because I hadn't had my coffee yet and was in a grumpy mood, so didn't even try to solve it. Just rated it difficult and went on. But this time, I was more willing to apply a little brain power and got them all after some cogitation. Thanks for a good teaser.

Eager Beaver? Really? -.-

Aug 07, 2013

That took a bit of doing, but it sure was fun and I got them all. I guess you have to be older and through some wars to have gotten Americans overseas. That came to me right away. I remember the "Yanks" Thanks for a very good teaser.

A big hand for BABE. She amazes me. HIP HIP HOORAY !!!

Great teaser! Thanks for posting.

Very fun, I got them all, and "eager beaver" was the last one I figured out, so it was kind of a surprise ending because the whole time I kept seeing "type of beaver" and thinking "I don't think I even know any species of beavers..."

I gave up on hinge, but got the rest. I think I sometimes give up too easily, but I still enjoyed this very much!
