Very fun but not all too easy. I missed OpinION and COwarD. I could not for the life of me remember what the lion with no courage was always called in Wizard of Oz.

Anyways, great teaser. Keep up the great work.

Though it was easy, this one was a lot of fun to do. I had a moment of uncertainty with opinion/pin as I hadn't read the hint (rarely do until after I've solved the puzzle). I had thought it was cameo but couldn't make that work. I did eventually arrive at pin, but not as quickly as I would have liked
