I agree with craniac. Also, shouldn't abbreviations be noted someplace? (Vet)

Are they easier? Or am I just getting better at solving them? Either way they are lots of fun!

I loved this one - I got almost all of them. I couldn't think of "lasso" and I completely overlooked cameo! Thanks!

Wow. Knowing that all of the words end with "O" makes it waaay too easy...

Loved it! 6/8 right. I didn't know the second one of 7 meant that though... Even if I did know the first.

I had completely forgotten that O was the last letter in all of them--I just knew that I was dropping a letter!! Got them all with zero problem. but as you can tell by my moniker, this kind of teaser is my thing!

For some reason I was unable to come up with cameo/came until I looked at the hint (duh). The rest came easily. Though some of them are easy I enjoy the behead and curtail series.
