WOW! This must have been very time consuming to create! Wow! I could tell, at least I think, that you looked through the dictionary for words that worked, but to find all those words that all took the same four letter prefix, wow! I GOT THEM ALL, YEA!!!!! But I had a hard time with 4 and 8, cause longhorn and longbow are so, um, antique, and something about 8, each so different. Love it when it's hard but I finally get them all, thanks! (I added evil here because he doesn't get used much, and it's all good)

Once I got the hang of how it worked, most of them were easy to figure out. I was stumped by #1 and #4 for a minute , but then they came to me. I enjoy these types of teasers. Great job!

Great one!! I got them all, but they seem vaguely familiar Anyway, keep up the great work and I will go have deja vu somewhere else!
iteachkidsAus*
Nov 05, 2005

Yeah, the term "prefix" in the directions threw me off, too, but once I saw the first answer, I went back to also think about adding 4-letter words to create compound words. Some of them were VERY tough. GOOD WORK!

got 4 out of 5 woohoo
shawneeo*us*
Nov 05, 2005

A fire sale is technically a sale after a fire when you sell whatever is not totally burnt up, but it's used to mean , you know, like, low, low, low prices, etc. The header said it could be a word or PHRASE that was formed, and I agree, maybe the ONLY improvement could have been to say something besides prefix, or something in addition to prefix.
Peace

Interestingly enough, the first 5
word groups that I was able to
solve, all had 4-letter words that
started with the letter "H". After that I started to get stumped.
Good one!

6/9 ... shoulda got long, foot shoulda been easy too, but I don't think I would've gotten fire... just because of fire sale (although dictionary.com knows that one).

I just tickled my brain until it could take no more tickling, and then I gave up and wanted to see the answer. I've got 28 more teaser emails before I catch up to today's Teaser of the Day....

Jun 06, 2007

For some reason, my brain wouldn't come up with the last one. Got the rest though. Guess I should feel good about that. Only took a few minutes too for 1-8
