Pure genius. A true thing of beauty!

good teaser, i only got 20% of this one right

This one is so hard I almost killed myself trying to solve it! Great job coming up with this one.

Tendencies was not a problem. Sewer was reasonble. Sidle was difficult because who would really think it is among the synonyms of creep. But the hints were useful. Very creative.

Thanks all.. it was a bit of work to get it to do what I wanted and it is tough to always get it completely watertight... I'm pleased you enjoyed it though - thanks for the comments.
Feb 23, 2003

That's so amazing! How did you come up with something like that? I wouldn't have the time!!
Feb 23, 2003

Tricks of language and my brain tend to go hand in hand Jiminy... honestly I scare myself sometimes with some of the things that come out of my noggin. I do enjoy spending time on a teaser though to try and get it as tight and 'clever' as possible. Thanks for stopping by ;P .

As an editor who has read every one of Dsquared's submissions, I would like to add that it frightens me, too. ;)

LOL!... Now they know the truth Bob, you didn't have to go tell 'em that .

I agree, this one was pure genius!!
I had the 'tendencies' part pretty quick, but that last part had me quite stumped!! Beautiful!!
Mar 10, 2003

Very clever!!!
Mar 10, 2003

Mar 10, 2003

Nicely done, but quite challenging. I couldn't solve it ...

Thanks everyone for stopping by and adding your thoughts .

Really well thought out, but don't wolves live in lairs and foxes live in dens? I would have got it quicker but was wondering what lairseas was representing
May 28, 2006

Pretty sure wolves live in a den as well... Den of wolves is an expression I've heard. I can certainly see where your confusion came in though
Aug 26, 2006

That was really hard. Great teaser.
