Good teaser, Took a lot of thought and that's why I do teasers. Thanks for posting.

As usual, I was too impatient to get them all, but I got more than 50% of the correct answers. Not good, but not bad either.

I got stuck because I was trying to make them rhyme like the example. Realized after looking at the answers that it didn't necessarily rhyme. Oh, well!

I'm not entirely happy with the definitions of #3, they're a little loose.

I couldn't quite get #2 - I got close, but my brain just wouldn't zero in on the right words.
I did get all the rest, though. FUN! Thanks!

I liked it and thought it was just fine the way it was, but I got them all right too. Thought it was very easy but fun.
