I got the first two. I thought it was good. Nice job!

I really enjoyed this one. Took me a while to come up with the first answer but after I did the rest fell in very earsily. Lamina is a form of laminate, you know, like putting a plastic covering on things like your driver's liscense or ss no. Anyhow, great job, cnmne. Keep them coming.

Tough one. Never would guess lamina and manila. Good work.
highlama
Feb 27, 2006

When I realized I was supposed to switch consonants for "lamina" rather than "animal" it got a whole lot easier ... Good fun!
iteachkidsAus*
Feb 27, 2006

Yeah, good one! I, too, got the first two words, but I couldn't get to "manila" ... I didn't think to put a consonant IN FRONT OF the first "a".

Very cool. I only managed to get this because I'm a Survivor fan.

as many i have never heard of lamina. i thought it was pretty hard but i didnt have my thinking cap all of the way on It was interesting and i'd like to see more of its kind
stm8r1us*
Feb 27, 2006

Highlama, the vowels for both "manila" and "animal" are in the same order so why would it matter which word you "started" with before moving the consonants around? You got it in the end, though, so good job!

Feb 27, 2006

omg!! i luved that 1!! it was the best i've seen in a WHILE!! gr8 job, whatsyourname!! lol. i'm so proud that someone actually submitted 1 that was worth reading and figuring out!

Nice one, and i got animal and manilla, but it's spelled with 2 L's, you know.
azbee123*us*
Feb 27, 2006

very very very cute. and maniLLa is spelled with two Ls.... just incase you were wondering...

its ok though.... still cute
cnmne*us*
Feb 27, 2006

manila or manilla? One of those words that can be spelled either way.

I didn't get it but i didn't know there was a name for a thin plate o well good jod
shawneeo*us*
Feb 27, 2006

I got it!!!!! But, the way you clued it, after getting the first word the rest fell into place, even though I've never heard of lamina; but I've heard laminate so that made sense and then manila wasn't hard. But that was a tricky one! Thanks!

Feb 27, 2006

An easy but a little tricky one. Not a thinking one.

In reference to the previous comments about spelling, Manila has only one 'l' in common english usage. It is named after the city in the Phillipines. While it may be able to be spelled with two l's, (I cannot find anything that specifies it is incorrect) it is less common and I can find very few official references to this spelling.
wordmama*
Feb 27, 2009

It was a good teaser; if only I could have come up with 'animal', the rest would have fallen into place.

Question: How does reporting something I find offensive work? I clicked on 'this is offensive'; THAT disappeared, but the posting is still there!! Can someone explain, please?
jcann*us*
Feb 27, 2009

Yes, wordmamma, I agree. I have done the same thing. Also just did it on one of these (probably the same one you did). As previous times, nothing changed. Does it have to have a certain number of reports, maybe?I'd like to know.
auntiesisAus*
Feb 27, 2009

I couldn't get this one. Just not my cup of tea.
dodgerh8ter*
Feb 27, 2009

Nice one. I got animal and that led me to manila but had to look up lamina.
I learned something new today.

A little obvious, though I had to assume lamina was a word (same vein as laminate). And I think Manila is far more comonly known as the plant/city/folder material, and not really thought of as a "paper type".

Feb 27, 2012

I never thought of manila as a type of paper either, but rather a type of folder. Learn something new every day
gaylewolfAus*

Well, I didn't get it, but I liked it!
Thanks for posting.

I can't believe that so many people didn't get this one,oop's I was one of them.
HABS2933Aca*
Feb 27, 2012

I too had to assume lamina was a word (though I've not heard it before) since the other two clues fit so well. Manila I have usually heard of in reference to an envelope, but knew it as a paper as well. Though fairly easy thanks to the Kingdom clue, I enjoyed this one.
