Easy, but fun. I usually get them by thinking of the "beheaded" word first.

These are fun. I think they would be more challenging if we didn't know what letter each word started with.

I don't use the hints, and it was still easy. Love this kind of teaser.

Fun little teaser. Kudos to all of you creative, brainy types who donate your efforts just to entertain the rest of us.

I don't think frank is used often any longer. When I hear it I think of Rhett Butler's response to Scarlet O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind", "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!"

Yeah, I had to struggle on "frank", but the rest were dead easy, once I knew what I was doing!

These are fairly easy, but still amusing. I do not think "frank" has been abolished from the
dictionary as yet. I still use it, to be frank with you!

Number four took me a little while to come up with it - the rest were pretty easy, but I enjoyed it very much! Nice teaser!

Whether "frank" is in common usage or not is irrelevant. It is still a valid English word, with which most should be familiar.

I got 6 of the 8 - I could have spent more time trying to figure out the 2 I missed. Fun teaser - thanks!
Be careful today if people celebrate April Fool's Day in your area. I remember the crazy tricks we played on my parents and friends when we were younger!
