I didn't think this was easy. It did take a lot of thought, and that's what Braingle is all about. Good teaser, would like to see more of these.

I got 2 & 3 with a little thought. I thought of chatter in 4 but it didn't lead me anywhere! The first I couldn't get, but also can't give it the time.

Very good teaser!

The sun came out finally (mid-Atlantic USA). Have a good day, everyone!
