IF IT HAS TO DO WITH LANGUAGE, ENGLIS THAT IS, I FIND THEM EASY AND BORING, BUT FOR SOME REASON, I LIKED THIS ONE. AND IT TOOK A FEW MINUTES TO COMPLETE.

GOOD JOB.



A TEAL IS A DUCK

Imurray actually misspelled a word! Pshaw! Hey, the teaser was great. I appreciated the work you probably had to put into it. Thanks.

All the comments are marked "This is offensive" again. What's with that? Interesting teaser but I'm too impatient. Either that or just not bright enough.

This was a good work out for the ole noggin. Didn't get them all but had fun trying. Good teaser.

Usually I'm terrible at these, but the structure made it more fun, nice job. Never heard of a teal before though.

No sale! These always give me trouble

I missed TEAL- and learned from IMurray that it's a duck. Cool.

Thanks for a great morning brain workout!


RHMaustin: Regarding the "offensive" links at left: I too was confused when I first started seeing them and even clicked a bunch to try to figure it out. Apparently, if you find any comment in these comment sections offensive, you click on that link. Perhaps they evaluate the comment and decide whether to delete it when they get enough people complaining. ?? You don't have this option until you earn a certain level of points on this site.

I did not understand the directions correctly.so i did not get it , but now I see it give me another chance

Oct 20, 2006

In spite of the fact that the instructions were not clear, I managed to get several, just based on context.
Yep, I even got the teal (their pretty shiny blue-green head feathers are TEAL green - get it??? That's where the color teal originated).
Told you I was a word freak. Can't help myself. Sometimes it's a burden. More often it's a blast. Thanks for the opportunity to challenge my brain daily!

I don't see any "offensive" marks on the side of the comments -- so maybe you who do are having internal problems with your own setup.
And teal, as I remember from my Army days, was a particular shade of BLUE, not green. I was in the AMA and our colors included TEAL. Nice teaser, BTW.

hey... immuray liked it... it must have been good!

I really liked this one, and yes a teal is a type of duck.

Except for 'inlet' (which word I know well, but failed to construct this time), got all the others correct. This teaser would have taken quite some effort to produce, even if many find it simple. Thanks for the teaser - I love anagrams.

nice!

I enjoyed this one. As aforesaid, I presume it took probably more time to construct this teaser than it did to solve it. Consequently I find you have done an excellent job. Besides that, it was fun. More please!?

Wow.. I struggled with this for awhile, and only managed to TAME the TEAM, STEAL STALE MEAT, and LISTEN to TALES, MATE.

(I wonder if I am just feeling creative, or am feeling the need to prove I'm clever even though I couldn't get 4 of the 12 blanks filled. )

Really well written; thanks. I wish I'd persevered to complete it.

Blew me away. Couldn't get the brain working today. Guess I need another cup of java.

Tough one for me. Got a couple, but wasn't sure of them. Really well thought out teaser. Kudos.

This was difficult for me - but very clever. Congrats to all those who
got them right!

Way to early in the day for my brain to work that hard.
Maggiethe8th*us*
Oct 20, 2012

I don't know if I'd have gotten them, as I, too, misread directions....I liked reading the positive posts, though!
iggy39Aus*
Oct 20, 2012

I always do this wrong. I think it is in the same line and not the others, if you know what I mean. First in all lines is 6, 2nd in all lines 5, 3rd in all lines 4
maybe if I type it out I will remember this one.
