Too much for me this a.m.! I would not only have needed more coffee, but I would also have had to pack a lunch! Great teaser. Thanks for your hard work.

This one took a lot of thought, both on the part of the submitter and the one trying to figure them out. A real work-out!! Thanks for the super great teaser. It was fun.

Hooo boy, these were hard!! I was only able to answer 1-4, and number 6 correctly. The rest were too difficult. However, it was fun and interesting... and very nicely put together!!

I missed several as well!

Impressive! This teaser was very well written. It was obvious you had put a lot of time into scrambling the words to make a mini definition of the job. Very high quality teaser!

This WAS hard! I missed 7 1/2 of them! I figured out seamstress (how could I miss tailor after that!) but I never would have gotten it if you hadn't put that it was two words w/"and"!

EXCELLENT WORK!

I'm with Badger. Coffee and toast wasn't enough.

Very good! I came up with arborist for #2 and mid-wife for the obstetrician. Fun.

Whew!! Those were hard. You did a great job w/the anagrams. Thanks for the mind bender today.

Outstanding teaser, Marc. I had to give up before finishing. Maybe next time you could turn thirteen clues into six or seven as many people did not seem to devote as much time to this teaser as it deserved. More points for you, more fun for the puzzle solvers!

Thanks for a fun,taxing teaser.

That was a great teaser. Really well thought out, it must have taken ages to come up with.

Wow... I am really impressed... and I am a tough customer... very good level of difficulty, VERY fun... well done

I must admit I was overwhelmed. I got the first two, then the 4th, then decided it was too much work to continue. Love anagrams, but too late on a Friday for my brain to work so hard. My bad Marc, not yours! Good job.

This is an irresistable teaser for an anagram lover like me! I had to try this again after my first attempt in May 2006, and got them all, including # 10 to 12! This surely goes into my favourites. Great effort has surely gone into the making of this teaser! Thanks for the challenge and fun.

Very fun, some more difficult than others. Oddly enough I thought the bonus was easier than some of the other ones.

WOW DUDE THAT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!! i LOVED IT KEEP IT COMING.

Wow, these would take a professional anagram-solver to tackle them all! ...or someone who had attempted them in a previous year, and who is coming back to them for this teaser of the day...! ;) (Sorry I just thought that was funny.

Seriously though, I got all but #10 and #12, and decided that had to be "good enough" .. and that's a good thing, because after looking at the answers, I'm not sure I would've gotten them. For caustic, I was thinking literally burning, and I the poles and report one I simply had no idea. Mixing up and rewriting the letters, the way I tend to solve anagrams, was getting me nowhere close to the actual answers either.

Good job, excellent even.

This was really hard I wish I had the time today to figure them out. Too busy but I thought it was one of the best one posted. Thanks I did get some of them very quickly but just didn't have the time, like I said to figure the rest of them. Really really great teaser in my opinion.
