Posted by zigthepig on Oct 15, 2005

woiw i actually got it...... VERY GOOD THOGH!!!!

Posted by JudgeJosh on Oct 15, 2005

It's simple but takes a second to get.

Posted by solidgordy on Oct 15, 2005

I think this was the second one I got. But, getting them is so fun! So, I wouldn't say at all that it was TOO easy, just that it was hard enough to make you think a little, and easy enough for some of us to get it and feel good. Thanks. (If you did wanna make it harder, maybe you could give a different hint, like, what member of the royal family, also, if you said: what king is this, or what king does this describe instead of "what king can you MAKE..." because that was a big hint right there about how to solve it.

Posted by Aarghonauts on Oct 15, 2005

Zoinks! I got another one! Thanks for the fun riddle and the boost of confidence

Posted by chaskey on Oct 15, 2005

Easy but refreshingly clever. Good for waking in the morning.

Posted by sweetmama on Oct 15, 2005


Posted by jcann on Oct 15, 2005

Good one! I just about gave in--I, too ,was making a picture in my mind of the body parts, but as I clicked on "show answer" I thought of using the letters, so I got it just before the answer showed up.

Posted by Tangle on Oct 15, 2005

That was fun, i was trying to envision the thing, when i should have been thinking about what i was reading.. Wake me up! i need some coffee.

Posted by soccercow10 on Oct 15, 2005

Oh, nice. I re-read it just to make sure if I was right at first. Interesting.

Posted by iteachkids on Oct 15, 2005

ARRRGGGHHH! I should have gotten that. I just SAW "Lion King!" And besides, how many "kinds" of "king" are there? ... One I did come up with was "viKING," but here in Minne-SNOW-ta, Vikings just disgust us anymore ...

GO TIGERS! (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Posted by unConfuseMe on Oct 15, 2006

I failed.
GO JESUS!(Sorry, i couldn't resist)

Posted by unConfuseMe on Oct 15, 2006

By the way, that is really GROSS what "Old Cina Hand" wrote.

Posted by jabdr on Oct 15, 2006

Total brain freeze. Felt pretty dumbola after reading answer. Great job.

Posted by bradon182001 on Oct 15, 2006

I didn't get it either until I read the answer. Guess I should have taken a little more time with it as I probably would have gotten it on my own. It really is easy once you see what it is.

Posted by coachpisco on Oct 15, 2006

Enjoyed that a lot. Thanks.

Posted by Pizzazz2u on Oct 15, 2006

When you know what you are looking for, the answer falls in place. I will not rate the difficulty, because of my knowledge, but

Posted by skittle499 on Oct 15, 2006

Nice one, (of course I didn't get it)l and it is really gross what "Old China Hand"said.Ew!

Posted by nu_rob_roy on Oct 15, 2006

Fun and easy, thanks. Do more.

OCH is just passing along a humorous old Chinese saying.

Posted by flamehead on Oct 15, 2006

That was a good one!! Very tricky!

Posted by MalcolmReynolds on Oct 15, 2006

Very nice.

Posted by Firemoon on Oct 15, 2006

That-was- GREAT!!!>^^

Posted by FatHead on Oct 15, 2006

Too easy! But I liked it anyway.

Posted by scallio on Oct 15, 2006

Goodness gracious me, how did so many of you get that when it was totally random? If the letters had at least been in order (L first letter of Lamb, I second letter of Bird, O third letter of Dromedary, N forth letter of Fawn) I might have had a chance. I don't see how any of you got this one!

Posted by scallio on Oct 15, 2006

Goodness gracious me again! I get it now! Oh my, I am a bit slow today. Feeling very sheepish! Baa baa...

Posted by evan_0819 on Oct 15, 2006

HI.......Im EVAN from phil.

Posted by phyllisa on Oct 16, 2006

Cute, got it right away!

Posted by tdbrsun on Oct 16, 2006

I was stumped . don't know what I was thinking. I liked it though

Posted by luvdoritos706 on Oct 17, 2006

nice one....thats crafty

Posted by dimez_00 on Oct 18, 2006

i actually got this one right away because i saw one like this b4..... not saying you stole it (and not using sarcasm either because people tend to think that all the time) but i just saw it b4.


Posted by teasermaster on Oct 24, 2006

Good teaser. Thanks!

Posted by vlerma on Oct 28, 2006

opsUH1 Again right over my old head. Nice job and cute when you know the answre. Give me another chance with another one please?

Posted by Qrystal on Nov 08, 2006

Woohoo I got it, and riddles aren't my strong point! Somehow I knew you were talking about letters. But I was a little perplexed at "hind" vs "tail" ... I didn't realize that both could mean the end of the word, and so I wrote down some nonsense things like "LIFFON" and "LIALON" before I realized it must be "LION"!

Anyways, that was indeed cute and fun (and pretty easy, but in this case it added to the fun )

Posted by auntiesis on Oct 15, 2009

Very cute, very easy, very enjoyable. Thanks.

Posted by UptheHill on Oct 15, 2009


Posted by patiencewithaP on Oct 15, 2009

Fun! Thanks for posting!

Posted by quesadillaman12 on Oct 15, 2009

Nicely done! I love this wordplay, although I solved it without looking at the answer.

Posted by avonma on Oct 15, 2009

I got it. I am finally learning ways to work these out. YAY!

Posted by Babe on Oct 15, 2012

I got! I got it! I got it! I can't believe I got it! Finally learning how these things work. It is really fun when you know how.

Posted by cutebug on Oct 15, 2012

New and easy for me,but very old and wornout for the veterans.

Posted by supernova12 on Oct 15, 2012

It was really easy but it was an interesting idea. Great job!

Posted by ultimatecub on Oct 15, 2015

Posted by jaycr on Oct 15, 2015

Babe's comment made me smile.

Posted by raisin99 on Oct 15, 2015

a tad too easy, but a good way to start the day

Posted by thecatladycac on Oct 15, 2015

Cute! Easy, but still FUN!

Posted by gaylewolf on Oct 17, 2015
