Hey Peppa you are so awesome. I love your work. Most are just hard enough to make them challenging but easy enough to keep us coming back. Great job. LOVED IT!!! And by not using Lucy made one wonder if you were on the right track. Double whamy.

bradon182001*us*
Feb 13, 2007

Still eacy, but enjoyable. After several days of not solving any teaser, it's good to be able to get the right answer.

Easy teaser for me but so much fun!! Keep them coming!!

A+ to Peppa, I got Lucy first, got stuck on "block", B for me, I loved it

Feb 13, 2007

It was a very good puzzle. The typewritter font threw me since i am so used to computers now.
FatHeadAus*
Feb 13, 2007

I missed #7, but got the "Bonus".

I loved it!
AbsurdHero*us*
Feb 13, 2007

I guess the fact that I missed the typewriter reference firmly cements me as a member of Generation Y. I haven't used one of those since I was like 8 years old.
scallioAus*
Feb 13, 2007

That's funny, Hero, because that was the word I missed too! Didn't need it to know the final answer though.

Great teaser!
Pizzazz2uAus*
Feb 13, 2007

A definitely terrific teaser! The teaser did get you to think about the answers. Even though it was easy for me, it was still enjoyable to conquer. Keep up the superb work!
speedqueenkmwAus*
Feb 13, 2007

see, being a tad older helps sometimes. Learning on a typewriter helped me to get #7. This was easy but lotsa fun. Keep em' comin'.
cloughmeAws*
Feb 13, 2007

For once I am afraid I must agree with LMURRAY... way too easy.

dachshund2k3Aus*
Feb 13, 2007

Easy, easy, easy. I didn't need to get all of the definitions to get the celebrity name. I only got about four before I got the answer.
mumbojumbo1234A*
Feb 13, 2007

The point was the get all of the definitions, not to get the name of the celebrity. The celebrity helped with the words.

Fun, and not too difficult.
OhEmGeeA*
Feb 13, 2007

kinda long
jabdrAus*
Feb 13, 2007

Thanks peppa...the perfect teaser. Fun, semi-easy, but with an added twist. Great job
breathesunshineAus*
Feb 13, 2007

I liked that this was on the easy side. Some of us need easier ones to restore our faith in our brains after we stumble through the harder ones.

Who is lucille ball????
lrrbttrfly*
Feb 13, 2007

way easy!!!
QrystalAca*
Feb 15, 2007

Hrm, I didn't know #7, wouldn't have known. I'd call typewriter font "Courier" But I figured courier didn't fit the VIP thing. The others were all easy, though.

I missed the instruction about finding the celebrity! When I saw it in the answer, I was like.. huh? why is there a celebrity name there? And I reread the question and smacked myself in the forehead....

Pretty Easy, but I would really like more brain teasers like this.

Easy but also fun! Nice job!

Thank you.

doeheadAus*
Feb 13, 2010

Ditto my remark of three years ago.
wordmama*
Feb 13, 2010

As you can tell by my 'handle', I got the definitions right off the bat! Getting the celebrity after the first two pairs of defs. definitely made the rest of the answers even easier to get! Very easy but just as enjoyable!
wordmama*
Feb 13, 2010

BTW: Please tell me those who got only 1 ans. right are 10 or under, and those who got 'only a few' are 14 or under!!?

Not too hard, but fun!

Nice teaser.
Babe*
Feb 13, 2013

All you had to get were the first four and the rest came easy. You look down and see LUCI and you knew it was going to be Lucille Ball so all you had to do was write her name down and you had the first letter to every clue.
Fun and easy!
gaylewolfAus*
Feb 13, 2013

Babe said it all and I agree! Easy but fun!
cutebugAus*
Feb 13, 2013

Agree w Babe & Gayle

Aw what the heck, I'll agree with babe too.
