This is an excellent teaser. Easy for some, monentarily confusing for others, especially if you don't put on your Thinking Cap.

I spilled my coffee this morning all over the kitchen counter, so don't have enough caffeine in my brain to deal with this. Got half of them without thinking; the rest ... well, after all, tomorrow is another day.
