Well you got part of it right, arrogant. I have yet to see anyone so negative on here. But on to the neat Teaser, Peppa, you did it again. It was sweet and fun. Did get them all with very little difficulty. Keep them coming.

I didn't get any of them. I didn't understand, because I didn't read the "intructions"

I liked this one. But master (2) could have been men tor instead of ex pert. Pretty good though. I'm sure there are lots of alternatives.

Did you really say kiss my eggs, Chupa?
luckybrown
Feb 03, 2006

I guess that makes sense since you apparently like to suck them. Do you like eggs a lot or something?

Nice job, PPatty.

I enjoyed this teaser. Took a minute and a paper and pen but I got it. I enjoy teasers that are not so difficult but that do stimulate my brain at the same time.

Excellent job!!!

Quite easy and fun to do. Copied the puzzle into Notepad and then cut and pasted the syllables alongside the words - so now I'm a computer expert too!

I don't have much to say about the teaser.... maybe I've done too many of this style, or something.

But the COMMENTS! Hilarious. It's neat seeing the conversation from previous teasers continuing in on this one. Although I can't help but wonder: isn't there enough teasers here that the TOTD shouldn't need to be the same as last year? Not that I've seen them before, but it just seems odd that we keep getting TOTD's that have a wave of comments from approximately a year ago.
