Very easy, but clever. At first I thought hint was a typo.

Fooled me on that one. I guessed the L = well, I = I, B = be, N = in, MT = Montana or Mountain. So, Well, I be in Montana. Couldn't figure out the H or even the hint.

You totally put that one clear above my head. That would have been a "strike three" if we had been on a diamond. Very very cleaver!

Tricky! Loved it--a kind of "word" illusion (instead of optical). Great!

Excellent -- very clever. Kind of a "hide in plain sight" deal.

I almost think that was too hard! I sure didn't get it! But, very good teaser, maybe for the teaser masters, thanks!

Got me on that one! Excellent job. Like one of those pictures where you need to de-focus your eyes to see the hidden image... I never "saw" hint as part of the puzzle. I'll have to de-focus my brain next time. Thanks!

Love it! It was fun and clever and took me awhile, and I still got it wrong. I tried to unscramble the letters, untill I noticed there was only one vowel, so I gave up doing that! Good job! Very cool!

Very clever. You sure stumped me with that one. I was too busy looking for something much more complex to see the plain and simple solution. I believe it was Freud that used to say, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!"

Loved the teaser!! One thing that confused me was the way the HINT was given . . . "Hint: becomes a" . . . It still would have been difficult if it had been written . . . "Hint: becomes A". . . Maybe the way the hint was written was part of the "trick," but it would have been hard even if written correctly with the capital A -- at least hard for ME!!!!

Boy, did I get that one wrong!

I was sure it was "Hell, I be in Montana"

Great teaser! Totally stumped me!
By the way. 'learning chinese' has grudgingly acknowledged this to be a 'cool' teaser - speaks volumes for its quality! Thanks for the compliment, 'learning chinese'!

that was really creative, never saw any thing like it before. Didin't get it, but was really good
jlvsbeksAus*
Jun 20, 2006

I would think to replace the letters in HINT with one letter A not four since you said hint: becomes a.
oh well it was ok

I didn't figure it out like that, but Alabama poppped-up in my head as soon as i read state.

That was very clever.....I didn't get it because I accidentally went to the answer before I really got to work on it.....

How good was this one?? Way and very and too!!! My first thought was "Yipee! You got me! "Too out in the open for me to see.. Gr8!

That was intellectually stimulating.

You stumped me!! I was thinking it was like personal license plates, which made think it was "backwards empty hillbilly" = Arkansas... (no offense y'all!) Then I thought the hint was "becomes a _____" STUMPED! Read the answer and said OHHHH!! Anyhoo, great teaser!!!
tdbrsun*
Jun 20, 2006

I missed the a . I was trying to find something that becomes something else. I like scallio's Hell t b in montana. My how we all think so differently! Good one

i like the idea of hint being the "A" but in the hint you should have written it like "A" and that is all i need to say

i love to jumbal letters up in to riddels so i got it right away,but at first i thought the hint was a typo.

pretty easy...
cox_94*us*
Jun 24, 2006

O.K I got it AFTER i looked @ the answer. 2 thumbs up !!! But a piece uv advice... it was confusing when you put the colon : it looked like the word "hint" wasn't part of the teaser!
