Nice one. Would never have guessed patch, however.

Aarrgghh! I'm just no good at this kind of puzzle. Don't know why. The answers seem simple and obvious enough once you see them.

WHAT IS A PUFF ADDER??

I got the first two immediately--after that..... 3 & 5 I should have gotten but didn't put any time into them. #4 I would never have gotten since 'patch pocket' doesn't mean anything here in the good ol' USA. Any compatriots beg to differ?

Excellent word selection. Got them all.
Puff adder is a snake found mainly in southern Africa.

I missed #2 - I couldn't think of "puff," so put "spread" - like spreading cheese - and spreading adder. (Isn't there a "spreading adder?"
I know, I know, it's a stretch.
It was fun, though! Thanks!

...oh, yes - it was "cream," not "cheese!"

nice quiz.... but what do you mean by patch pocket? I guess I understand it but don't think Ive ever heard the term.

patch pocket is a pocket made by sewing a shaped piece of material to a garment( shirt, blouse, pants) usually of a different material, color,or design than the garment.

I don't know how I managed to miss so many when they should have been so easy. Must be having some senior moments. I really liked it, just couldn't get most of them.

I'm with wordmama, a "Patch Pocket" and "Puff adder" aren't familiar terms to most Americans.

Just because your vocabulary doesn't have a particular word in it doesn't mean that's true for all or even most other Americans, it just means your vocabulary needs some work.

Never heard of a puff adder

Never heard of "Patch Pocket" either. My vocabulary doesn't need that much work...

The term patch pocket is familiar to me and I think it is very American. It's just a flat pocket on the outside of a shirt, jacket or pants. And a puff adder is a type of snake. Maybe they aren't too common, but they aren't words foreign to Americans.

A puff adder is a snake so anyone COULD know it, but a "patch pocket" seems like it's some kind of quaint regional term for something that nearly everybody else just calls a pocket.

A shoulder patch is more of a shoulder badge in my world but at least I'm fully aware of the alternate name. Patch pocket simply would never register as anything at all. Now that I've googled the term, the images all just look like what I'd call just pockets.
