Fun, fun, fun!

The last three had me stumped though.

Brilliant teaser, I couldn't figure out the second to last one
Jan 19, 2010

Fun, but kinda easy, even without the hints
Jan 19, 2010

thanks again e-marc

I found the E words were easier than the C words.

But they were both still fun to solve!

Although it was on the easy side. I'm elated that it was not an old repeat.

Thank you all for your comments!
There are several others in this series so far (Behead A - H), but also a Curtail series where the last letter is removed - those are a bit harder.

I loved this one even though it was fairly easy. I missed #6, but got all the rest. Thanks
Jan 19, 2010

I got them all easily; you can tell by my handle that this is my thing. Much, much fun!!

It was a nice fun one to work out and not too hard. I enjoyed it. I also enjoy Garfield cutebug which is not a child's cartoon. It is in the comic's page in the newspaper for adults..but even so, why would it be a waste? Anything you enjoy is not a waste. Some of us are in our second childhood anyway. It is a waste to be so critical.

Easy and enjoyable Sorry BABE,but I wholeheartedly disagree with you.
Jan 20, 2013

Another great teaser Marc.
Jan 20, 2013

easy but i really liked it, thx.
Jan 20, 2013

Just the right amount to get my neurons firing!
Jan 20, 2013

I usually don't like these kinds of teasers, but I saw that it was teaser of the day, and decided to give it a try. I loved it! And I got it all right too!
Jan 20, 2013

Great fun. Love word games.
Jan 20, 2016

Fun. but I admit I had to use the hints for the last 2.
Jan 20, 2016
