I have listed the following as Happy Words. What is it about these words that suggests that they are "Happy"?


There are two hints. The second might give it away too easily so it is a few lines down the page!


The words all contain the letters S-M-I-L-E in order. They all have a smile, so they must be happy!

e.g. SeMicIrcLE


What Next?

A good cheerful teaser that I like a lot. And I did get it after the second hint.
Aug 05, 2010

it made me smile! i don't think I would have gotten it without the first hint though. Once I read that, I got it
Aug 06, 2010

Great! It's good to focus on cheerful things, and

Miles of smiles! Great teaser! And you were right, the second clue does kind of give it away.
Aug 07, 2010

Nice! I got it without the hints and it made me smile. Clever and very nice of you to focus on the positive!

the smiles just popped out at me ! nice job
Sep 05, 2010

Nice teaser!
Interesting, because I would never have associated the words. Made me smile too! Thanks!
Sep 05, 2010

Haha, I did not get it even with the second hint, but it was a cool, and nice idea
Sep 05, 2010

Great teaser!
Sep 05, 2010

grumble grumble grumble grumble

Really great teaser, but I needed the second hint. Good job.
Sep 05, 2010

I got it right away without the hints. When I saw the "ile" on the end of smowmobile I immediately thought, "I wonder if the word smile is in every word?" This teaser made me smile!
Sep 05, 2010

You spelled smile in the hint wrong. You put simile.
Sep 05, 2010

I think that was intentional. It says "one" of the shortest happy words. Why would you give the answer away in the hint?
Sep 05, 2010

totally my kind of puzzle! So I got it right away. Loved it!
Sep 05, 2010

After discovering the word "smile" I started looking for other emotional words that meant happiness. But look at what happens. Smile is in all the Answers...
Sep 05, 2013

I did not get it and that does not make me smile. Thanks for the good effort.
Sep 05, 2013

It was a happy thing
Sep 05, 2013

you spelled smile wrong.
Sep 05, 2013

Twains, it's supposed to be simile. The hint wasn't meant to give you the answer.

Glad this is still a happy teaser!

But I'm a bit at the moment - someone has made a "correction" without consulting me. The HINT is NOT supposed to be the word itself, as several of our more astute Brainglers have noted. The hint says ONE OF the shortest, not THE shortest! It should be SIMILE - I'll ask for that to be returned!

Keep up the good work and Fun Levels, everyone.

I must be getting smarter with age as I got it this time with only the first clue. You had to get it with the second one as it spelled it out for you. If you did not....Hmmmmm!

I liked this puzzle and noticed the word "smile" in one of the words, and then found the others. Thanks for posting a good one.
