That was fast! LOL.

Hmm. Post your answer using the {hidden} {/hidden} tags. That way anyone else who wants to solve can't see it until they post to the thread.

The hidden thing didn't work... I'll use the spoiler thing maybe?

You are correct. (Though you've only solved part of it, you could easily look up the rest. Hmm. Will have to experiment with this game some, too. To make it harder...mwah ha ha) 

(The hidden tag hides whatever you put there from anyone who has not posted in the thread. Thus since you've posted in the thread it wouldn't appear to be hidden to you. It's hidden from others, though.)

It wasn't that I could see it, they showed up actually saying the words "hidden" and "/hidden"

People think it would be fun to be a bird because you could fly. But they forget the negative side, which is the preening.

Yeah, I was afraid that was going to give it away. LOL. But hey...was pretty much just experimenting with whether this would actually work on a message board. lol.

I don't see why not.  Ash will probably get tired of posting all of them. :)
