Very interesting. As a crossword enthsiast, I found this to be quite a simple one. Stimulating though! Thanks.

Sorry for the typo in the word 'enthusiast' in my previous comment!

Should have known this was one of yours Jazz. Great teaser, a little on the hard side but still fun.

Nice one Jazz. Being a wordster, it was simple for me. A rebus or riddle, on the other hand.......... Thanks for your always interesting postings

That was pretty easy. The only one I couldn't get was quaff. I've never heard of the word before. Good, fun teaser!

great job again jazz!!!... i began looking for a word to mean "a flask for liquids" for canteen but couldnt come up with anything... then i looked at the letters i had and came up with cafeteria... i thought about it and then thought maybe you were refering to a canteen being a place of recreation for military personnel (my best friend is in the army) and that it could be considered misleading... upon looking up the word in my Marriam-Webster dictionary, i now know that it means a small cafeteria also... thanx for another great teaser and teaching me something new today

and the only reason i got quaff so quickly is that i had just used it last wednesday at bowling when i looked at my teammate and said "boy, you really quaffed that beer down" (yes, just like Snoopy ) and i got a laugh out of everyone for using it

I got 3 of them quite readily; canteen took a minute. Enjoyable teaser for someone with my handle!!

Easy. These are good teasers. I have to say, I found your example (figurine) more difficult than the ones you used in the teaser!

Nice job. Took me a few minutes to get the middle two, the other two were easy peasy. Thanks for the teaser. Loved it.

Found it to be rather easy except for canteen ,and I had to look for the answer . I had heard it used that way before but my mind was in a zone . Thx. I liked it.

Thanks Guys. I'm happy you all enjoyed this teaser. As for the word 'quaff', it's a little beautie! That was one of my uncle's favourite words, especially on a hot day with a beer in his hand!

Missed "Canteen" because I was only thinking of a canteen you'd drink out of. Didn't even occur to me to look at other meanings.

love these. I'm a crossword and Jumble addict, too, so these are easy, but I love them. Check out TumbleBees on Pogo.com and also WordWhomp.

This is the absolute WORST teaser I have EVER tried to do! This is a disgrace to the human race!

This was a fun teaser. I enjoyed it, and with a little thought I got them.

I too looked for some kind of container for canteen. I have never heard it called a cafeteria.

Fun teaser, but I must make a correction.
Snoopy used to quaff root beer.

Got them all. I found the "words on left" served to confirm the hidden words (which could be found w/out the word to left). liked it
