Ditto what bear said. For #5, I got clean/lean, but chaste/haste is much better.

This teaser was perfect! Didn't need any hints, but I did have to think 2 seconds about 2or 3 of them, the rest coming immediately. The clues were spot on! Thank you for this teaser!!

Where is everyone on this teaser? Only 8 comments. I thought it was pretty good and got all but two. Some could have had better words for clues, but fun anyhow!
