Another great teaser, Jazz. Really glad you keep coming up with them. :o

Ouch Jazz- Thinking forward and reverse at the same time is a lot to ask in the A.M. Outstanding teaser.

Oh my gosh, this was HARD! But it was a cool teaser! I read it, and gave up after ten seconds because I knew I'd get nowhere with this teaser... Keep making more thought-provoking teasers like this one! I have just one thing to ask you to do: Please add a hint for teasers like this one!! :D I gave up because I knew the words would be a random selection...All I would like are clues as to what [some of] the words are about. Thanks for the awesome teaser!

:evil: hate those kind of teasers.and there has ben way to many of them :evil:

Ouch! That was wayyyy too hard. I also gave up quite quickly. I can't think about all the different ways to look a word. I guess that's why it's a teaser of the day. :roll:

Sampan: A flatbottom Asian skiff usually propelled by two oars

Word/language teasers are difficult for me, too. But I would still like to try... Thank you!!

Posted by WildCardAl10/12/07
A clue or two would have been nice ! :o

Posted by SweetPotato10/12/07
Too hard for me, although I did get the "sampan" one. I agree that clues, either for the 4-letters or the six letters, would have made it more fun. Thanks for this one ... it took some thinking to create it, I'm sure. Is it a sampan or a "junk" that's a Chinese family harbor boat with a sail? Or are they one and the same? :-? :D

I would have never gotten this on my own!!

Posted by jabdr10/12/07
Wow..a tough one :o I got # 3 (by accident or by mistake..not sure which) 8) Hard concept for my brain to grasp..but terrific teaser. This will be one of only a few in my favs. :)

Posted by scallio10/12/07
Too hard! Arghh :o I could not get the last two and haven't even heard of a sampan. You're killing us, Jazzy! Have mercy please. :lol: In all seriousness now, great job coming up with this one. Very creative. :D (But did I mention hard?) :lol:

I just gave up. :D It was fun trying anyway. Thanks for posting. Monday~ :lol:

Posted by SweetPotato10/13/07
Uh ... Mr. Walker? Uh ... this is an English teaser. :-?

Posted by jazzmusician4610/14/07
hahaha..there's always one! Thanks for the constructive comments! :D

Posted by s_o_s01/02/08
Wow that was really hard! Especially using such an obscure word like sampan. I know we're all here to be challenged, but still...

Posted by jazzmusician4601/03/08
Hmmm, it seems to me some people need to brush up on their basic geography. A Sampan is a common name for a small boat used throughout the East and has been in use for hundred's of years. :-?
