Not sure that 'this and that' was a good example compared to answers

Nice little language teaser. Easy but fun and it did take a little thought especially the last one. Thanks for posting.

Example was misleading,but answers were easy once I knew what I was looking for.

I liked it. I got the first two no problem, but the last two stumped me.

Thank you

Keep them coming

The directions on this were very confusing. Maybe you can add a relevant example? I don't think most people immediately associate the words "snake" and "hiss" like they might "this" and "that."

I was completely snowed by this one ... like so many others, I think the introductory example misled me.

i thought you were only supppose to mix up one word, for ex, you mix up dark by itself and bog by itself

The theme was part of the puzzle, folks. If the example had been "owl hoot," it would have given away half the game.

Not too hard, but directions could have been better.

Anyone who does word jumbles knows the word 'unscramble' is a jumble direction. Form 2 words from the letters given....Good job

I got the first two easily...in fact I thought the first one actually said "Bark Dog"...but the other two were beyond me.

First two were fine, but then I went to the hint and felt misdirected. Who associates a snake with a farm? Even a donkey is a bit of a stretch, and everything I've ever seen says the "hee-haw", not bray. Great idea, poorly executed.

I thought that each word would be scrambled on its own ("dark" and "bog" would be separately mixed) This + that was a horrible example compared to the actual answers.

Awesome!

I realize I can not do any type of puzzle until I've had my first cup of coffee! Got the first two fairly easily... I like this type of puzzle - but I need to be more awake! Hello to Sis and KiPA!

Got 1,2 and 4. Three eluded me. I kept trying to find farm animals. The only one that I could get out of that was hen but the rest of the letters didn't make any sound that a hen would make. Snake is not considered a farm animal.

A good one except for the terrible example. It was misleading! Finally figured out the first two and then seen the way it should be.

Hi Gayle and doehead. AROB

I already did this one in 2011 and still feel the same about it.

Not very well explained.

Direction was sketchy, but easily solved.

Got the first two quickly, looked at the answer for the last two - Like it!
