This is cute. I didn't actually get the answer myself, because I honestly kept geyying hung up on the fact that you had named teo of the X-men in it. That was what caught my eye first, was Storm and Cable. And once my mind was thinking X-men, there was no chance I'd derail that chain of thought enough to solve the puzzle. I'm more than a little obsessed there.

I thought that you meant that the word that was already there and the one you changed it to were connected. Sorry, i must have read the instructions wrong.

Confusing instructions.

It also took me a minute to figure out what the teaser was about, but when I did, it was easy. Easy and fun.

Payable/parable jumped out at me and the rest fell nicely into place. I love it when I get something right for a change.

Once I got parable, I went back to story, than fable ... as I was going thru the vowels for the second letter in moth I said math, meth, mith ... mith? myth! That was fun. Thanks

I meant "thEn" fable. That misspelling is one of my pet peeves.

Fun teaser. I got the first one pretty quickly, so the rest was a piece of cake.

That was a wonderful teaser. It took me a while to get one of them but the rest were fairly easy.
Thanks for posting.

This was a cool teaser! I got it quiickly and it was easy for me, but I had fun trying to think of these words in a new way...It was interesting to see such unique words related in such a simple way...Good job on the teaser and keep more like this coming!

I started with Stork, couldn't get it off my mind and then went rapidly downhill from their...good teaser.

Very nice teaser - creative. More please?

The parable one is the key, I think. There aren't many other words you can make out of payable!

Good one, had to get to Moth, thought math? myth?...aha!

Sep 03, 2010

I would agree with those who said the instructions could have been clearer, but it was still understandable. I also thought Payable was the place to start, since you're options are pretty limited there. Nice teaser!

"since your options..." duh....

Funny, Sonny.
Cute, easy, but cute. Loved it.

I too did not read the instruction right. I overlooked the fact they had to be related and got entirel;y different words. Just thought you had to make new ones and so got "table" and "math" for two of them. Guess I should read the instructions twice before starting.
