Posted by thimblenoggin on Jan 07, 2006

We've all noticed that these four simple wordss all have the same letters in common, but to put them in the context of an extremely well-known Boadway musical was smart.

I saw this is the "teasers without answers" section a while ago, so I knew the answer already. Don't know if I would have gotten it otherwise. Thanks!

Posted by auntiesis on Jan 27, 2007

Love cats, loved this teaser. Easy but made me smile.

Posted by phyllisa on Jan 27, 2007

Good teaser, didn't get it.
BTW you say SCAT to shoo away cats (but only if you want them to go away).

Posted by Pizzazz2u on Jan 27, 2007

A highly imaginative and entertaining teaser! Not too easy and yet hard enough to tease others! Totally fantastic! Keep these type of teasers on the daily routine. Keep up the great work!

Posted by Qrystal on Jan 27, 2007

Aww, that was cute! I love limericks, and what an ingenious way to bring those four anagrams together!!

Posted by jcann on Jan 27, 2007

I couldn't come up with an answer this morning, but this late afternoon it came to me right away! I'm glad I didn't just give up and look at the answer, as I sometimes do. I guess this must mean I do my best thinking in the afternoon. Good teaser!

Posted by bgil7604 on Jan 27, 2007

I sort of misread the instructions, but I thought it was a good, fun teaser.

Posted by jimbo58 on Jan 27, 2007

If memory serves, this teaser--or some form of it--has been on here during the past year or so.

Nice. I would never have gotten this one though, so I'm glad I didn't try!

Posted by vlerma on Feb 01, 2007

Swaff, that was really fun and neat. More please?

Posted by scallio on Jan 27, 2010


I didn't get the correct answer when I first read this a couple years ago and didn't again today. Slow learner, I guess.
NOTE, TONE? What was I thinking?!

Best I just go back to bed!

Posted by FatHead on Jan 27, 2010

That was cool. Too bad it couldn't be a true limerick, though.

Posted by sunnybonghits on Jan 27, 2010

Well done indeed

Posted by Maggiethe8th on Jan 27, 2013

Had fun searching the memory bank for the show-found 'Hair' first, then quickly changed to the correct one-The rest fell into place-Thank you for the fun!

Posted by allythebuterfly on Jan 27, 2013

Whoo! Yeah I got it! So excited to finally be getting better at these! At first I couldn't get any of the daily teasers, but now I'm starting to figure out every other one

Posted by catmom on Jan 27, 2016

I first tried Hair, then Mame, I did get anywhere with those, so the only other 4 letter title that came to me was Cats.......Bingo!!

Posted by catmom on Jan 27, 2016


Posted by Marple on Jan 28, 2016

What does Scat mean? I've never heard that word before!

Posted by FatHead on Jan 28, 2016

It means to scram or to leave.

To look up any word, just feed it, and the word definition, into Google.

Posted by Marple on Jan 29, 2016

Thanks Fat Head.
