I like that one.
Apr 30, 2002

nope - didn't like it - too generic.

I am often amused as much by these ludicrous comments as the teasers themselves. This teaser was fun. It was clever to have come up with 4 examples to ponder. If you think the teaser is stupid or generic... maybe you might find it more stimulating to think of additional examples.

Not bad. I did not even think about the spellings. I was just anlyzing the verbs. Good job.

I really enjoyed this one. Good job.

The letters of the word have to be in order from left to right, like, for ex-ample, hop. H comes before o and p, and o comes before p. With jump, j comes before the other letters in the alphabet, and u comes after m in the al-phabet, yet it is before m in the word. I hope that kinda clears up any confusion that anybody has. If my ex-plaination didn't help you or made it harder to understand, go ahead and say so, because I know I stink at explain-ing things.
