I like riddles that make me think. I didn't get this one but both given answers are very good.

I wouldn't have thought of 'template' in a million years!

Hah, I got it, well done, well done!!

I got so hung up on 'profile' being the second word that I never could get beyond it. NIce one!
avonmaAus*
Sep 20, 2008

I couldn't get it, either.
Good one, though

I got con then I knew the two words combined had to be something to do with thinking. I was stumped after that, but when I saw the answer I had to hit myself (literally). Great teaser.

I had MAN, AGE and MANAGE too, but it doesn't really fit all that great Nice teaser.

Difficult but fun.
I wasn't able to solve it.

Template? You are kidding, right??
I like the one that says "man" and "age" a lot better. How many of us know or use the word template? Show off!

Contemplate is NOT a compound word, which is what your example implied...for this reason it is a poor teaser, in my opinion.

AROB. I still find this EZ. A to G & S
gaylewolfAus*

My thinking was the same as Babe's. I was thinking the second word was "profile" or even "mold", but I would never use the word "template" in reference to a person, only to a thing. Happy Sunday, friends
auntiesisAus*
Oct 02, 2011

Still didn't get it. Oh, well, Hi to G & K.

Just a nitpick, but shouldn't it be fit instead of fitted?
