Agreeing with doehead again--omg!

But I still found it fun!

American phonetics uses a soft s /s/ for cease (actually two /s/'s!) and a hard s /z/ for tease.

No cognitvely intact adult should be patting him/herself on the back too much for solving this teaser, which was easy to the point of being like being the first player to move in a game of tic-tac-toe on a 2 X 2 matrix.

Maybe it's just how I say it I say cease and tease like fleas.

To the above person if they are still around. You say cease like fleas then it should be spelled seize. The two are very, very, different.
Even though it was easy as can be it was still fun. Hardly worth grumbling about.

Yes this teaser was easy, but fun. I wish there had been more than 4 lines! Thanks for posting. Have a nice day all!

Agreed on the easy side, but I was in the mood for a teaser just like this one so it's perfect! On the other hand, this requires some imagination which not every brainiac possesses.
