TOO TOO EASY THIS ONE MUST HAVE BEEN FOR THE KIDS.

MORE DIFFICULTY PLEASE.

THIS WAS A FUN ONE, (ACCORDING TO THE OTHER COMMENTORS), BUT I THOUGHT THE TEASER FORUM WAS SUPPOSED TO STRAIN OUR BRAIN, NOT JUST AMUSE US.

well, there's all kinds of teasers .... and this is why we can rate them. I found it easy, but then again, I love the word pique, and I love leeks...

Anyways, this one _piqued_ my interest, but I didn't have to _stare_ long and it didn't make my _hair_ stand on end. Can I _hire_ you to _leak_ some more out of your head?
