Thanks, Radd! The 'inspiration' for this came from listening to my wife (not Casey!) trying to spell our names over the phone. We live in a non-English country and she's usually very good ... but occasionally... Anyway, I'm glad people can enjoy it!

Most original and interesting teaser ever! I got it too. And it's funny because it's about clarifying something and muddying it at the same time... very clever.

I was on the right track, but didn't follow through. Very clever.

thanks. I enjoyed it.

I knew someone who used to do things like this. K as in Knowledge. P as in pneumonia. N as in Nary. I guess it helps to have twisted friends.

I guess I stand alone for not liking it.
It just did not offer a challenge and the answer was really far out, but glad everyone else liked it. Sorry! Just not my kind of teaser

great puzzler !!!!!!

Gave it TOPS for fun.

Well thought out and constructed.

It's great because it illustrates - so well - one of the idiomatic quirks of our English Language; the various "different" pronunciations of our letter-characters.



Oh ..... the initial intro of this Teaser drew 12 comments.

I'll wager anybody here that THIS reincarnation draws fewer then six.

Ante up, folks. We got TWO thus far.

So, Babe, did you manage to solve it or not? If you didn't manage to solve it, I question your claim that it didn't offer a challenge. In any event, there were many puzzlers who evidently DID deem it to offer a challenge. I am one such, although I also, after cogitating a bit (that was the challenge part) happened to solve it wihout consulting either the hint or the revealed answer.

Thanks everyone! Good to see it enjoyed on its second round - and, yes, I also liked it because it was original.

To add a little topical humour, I have a friend who amuses with his one-liners. I remember him explaining to a student, "It starts with a silent 'p' - as in trousers!"
