  1. I got the first one. I feel stupid for not getting the second. And the third is cute although I never would have gotten it myself.

  2. I felt so clever with number two, thinking it was too easy…
    until I saw the answer and realized that I fell for the obvious. haha! >w<

    Luckily, as a language-learner, I'm used to being humbled countless times a day, so I'm already recovered and ready for the next dose of humble pie. Bring it! (ノಥ益ಥ)ノ ┻━┻

  3. The first and second one I figured out after some thinking. The third one I was unable to answer, but it certainly was really clever.

    That aha-moment when you realize what the question is about is fun, and I really enjoyed these.
