Great teaser. Very clever and even though I saw this one before, I never would have figured it out! Loved this one - thanks!

BB: "I brought TWO computers of my own ..03. My regular laptop and a new Zero Timerican. TRULY awesome. (very expesnsive but it's a loaner ... "

How can a computer you "bought" be a "loaner"? Either you bought it and OWN it, you leased it, or you borrowed it (making it a loaner).

BTW - no point in addressing Babe, she isn't visiting the teasers anymore.
She does however use other parts of the site (which would not be reflected in your teaser campaign).

I needed the hint, but I got it after a couple more minutes after that. Good one! And the last three words are made of THREE state abbreviations, like WI/IN/NE. I wonder if you can find any 5-letter words made of 4 state abbreviations? Or 6-letter words made of 3 separate state abbreviations?

Oh, and nice passive aggressive comment posting style, BB02

I do not see any comment from BB, and yet people are responding to him. Has he been deleted? I always enjoyed the back and forth banter.
As for the teaser it was hard and I never would have gotten it. I did not look at the hint.

I found this fairly easy once I decided I needed to think a bit differently. At first I thought maybe all the words were anagrams, and then I saw the pattern.

Very clever, and nicely done!

I would suggest phrasing the question differently, though, without using the word "strange," since what's strange to one person isn't to another. Perhaps just say: "What do all the words below have in common, apart from the fact that they are all four letters long."

Once again, very enjoyable. Thanks!

That's clever, but I would never have come to that conclusion. Even with the hint - I separated them into two vowels and two continents.

Haha - I meant consonants!
