I like anagrams - a couple were very easy, making the category easy to figure out, but a few took a few minutes. Liked it - thanks!

Lots of fun! Great teaser! Almost thru in the towel on "in place", but stuck with it and it finally popped. Thank you very much for submitting.

Unlike Badger, I threw in the towel on IN PLACE. I lived in Louisiana for 2 1/2 years and still couldn't get pelican!! I enjoyed this teaser! Very Good!

I love anagrams and could get all except polar bear! Silly of me. The story was quite good, and it must have been hard work to think of all the links. Great job done, and I appreciate that.

As everyone said Phrebd, you did a super job of putting this story together and the two part thingy made it just that much more fun. I figured out the animal part as I did get some of them right, just not all of them. This was fun. More, please!

yep I couldn't get pelican either ..... i just toyed with the letters, mixed this way and that, and gave up after 49 variations. The one that sounded closest to actually being an animal was: "lepican", which, now that I know the answer, was painfully close.

Anyways, I had fun, and I enjoyed actually GETTING the rest of the anagrams! I think I may go seek out the rest of the storigrams just because....

This was fun! I figured out half of them rather quickly, and came up with animal as the category. But I didn't have time to figure the rest, so I had to cheat and peek at the answers. Thought Polar Bear was Boar something! Great fun!

Easy and good.

Once I read the hint I started to make headway. Without knowing it was all animals I was stumped. Even with the hint I missed giraffe. Great quiz, made me think.

I really enjoyed this teaser. I didn't look at the hint until it was mentioned in some of the above comments. Didn't need to. GOAT and LAMB were easy to figure, which gave the category. After that, it was pretty easy to finish.

I got CAPELIN for the last one ( a small fish like a sardine) instead of pelican.

I love these stories. The concept is fun, and the stories are entertaining. They remind me of mad libs, where you can make the story funny without making real sense. Now if only I could actually solve these''' Anyhow, thanks for the entertainment.
