I missed nag. I thought a nag was a fussy woman. . .ha ha

btw, I don't think of people as animals, so 'man' didn't compute

The teaser was fun - thanks!

Missed cat. I probably would have gone back and found it, but for some reason I was thinking I only had to find 11, and I thought I had found an extra one with man, and I was gonna leave a comment saying that man is an animal too.

AHh, I HAD FORGOTTEN HOW THREE LETTER WORDS COULD BE INTERESTING, FASCINATING, AND STIMULATING NOT TO MENTION MYSTIFYING.

Hey what about the word person. That would be an animal as well. Hmmm. So i guess we can rename this one 14 animals. Although i'm still not quite sure what a nag is.

May 29, 2007

Loved it! I got ape, ass, ewe, doe, fox, ox, man, pig, cow, and ram.

I, too, only missed nag...For those who were asking what it was, nag is a name for an old worn horse.

Good teaser.

Imurray, please explain to me how 3 letter words are "mystifying" and "intrigueing"!

May 29, 2007

Actually, you used the phrase "interesting and stimulating". I hate how you can't see the comments as you post.

May 29, 2007

I like the idea of this puzzle. It's on the easy side so it doesn't strain the brain too much. I would have liked it a little better if the poem actually made sense.
BrockAus*

Pretty good. I didn't get very many but o well. The poem was pretty weird and I agree that it would have been better if the poem actually made sense. But good job!
omgitsashAus*
May 30, 2007

i didnt like this one...sry, the poem just didnt make sence and most of the words were kinda not the way you expect

Wow, I think Braingle's made me good at finding words within other words... I found all 13 first time through!! Even nag, and man, and both ox and fox. Before I finished, I was starting to think that maybe I'd be finding more than 13! But then when all was said and done, there were only thirteen, and the same thirteen that you listed in the answers.

And HEY! Today's Friday the 13th!! And it was about 13:13 when I finished the puzzle!! WOOOOT!! Lucky me~!
