This teaser was very interesting, I must say, but it was very difficult. I look forward to seeing more of these benevolent brainteasers.

That was a fun teaser. I found it fairly easy - at least I got all of them without the hint. 8) Thanks!

interesting, #2 gave me pause for a moment but was easy overall

After 3 weeks on vacation, I needed a extremely easy teaser to get me back in the grind. This one fit the bill. 8) :D :)

I liked this teaser as I had never seen one like it before. I needed the hint for #1, but I got the rest on my own--needed to think just enough for a Monday morning! :)

I didn't get the one with the horse movement, but the rest were doable without the hint. Thanks for a good one. :lol:

:evil: I love this Teaser. I like all Language Teasers I am realizing. I just don't have the patient to figure the problem out completely. I'll get one part correct and give up on the second part. Math is the only subject that gives partial credit. Good Teaser, very well done... :wink: :evil:

I could not for the life of me think what food skin was. It sounded soooo gross! Got all the rest though. Not too bad a teaser! :P

I had a bit of trouble with "food skin" as well I was thinking rind then was starting to get dinner together in my head and reaslised I had to peel the potatoes - and voilà! There it was.

Posted by auntiesis05/24/13
I found 3 easy, and one tougher. :D :lol: :D

Pretty easy - I missed the fact of using a 4 letter word to fill in until I went back and read it again. I need to read instructions more thoroughly!! :oops: Anyway - Nice teaser!! :D :lol: :D
