good one, I was also thinking part of a shoe could be tounge or heel

May 17, 2003

Lots of fun thanks Got all but the shellfish---- duh !!!!!!

May 17, 2003

I said tongue on the shoe one. For the builder one I said hammer, ya know the malleus, that tiny little bone in your middle ear....

May 22, 2003

Question 7, "Part of a shoe" can also be correctly answered "tongue" as well as "heel" and "Soul" (sole).

For number nine, I also thought "cracks." It was incredibly easy, but very fun. I give you props.

please dont make braingle a joke... wake up.

good teaser i liked it muchly . i got tongue for the shoe one. and i got bum for the builder one, but i can't be blamed for thinking that!!

tongue wd work for "part of a shoe"
guts for what a soldier must have

Toe = what you do to a broken down vehicle (well, tow, actually)

Knee - what Monty Python knights said in "MP and Holy Grail" ;-)

Mouth - where the river meets the bay

Ear - response when roll is called ('Ere)

Finger - feeling something


These can be fun!

May 17, 2004

i think on the "part of a shoe" another answer should be "toungue". you said the 2 possible anwers were heel and soul. those are good, too, but a lot of people might think of toungue. it was a good teaser, though!
GidgieAus*
May 17, 2004

Ok, at the risk of embarrasing myself, I'll tell you what I honestly answered for 8, 9, and 10.

8. Tool
9. Crack
10. Sack

Honest Injun! That was all I could think of! LOL

May 17, 2005

Very well played out! I enjoyed figuring it out ! Though a bit on the easy side, for me, I realize that not all people who visit this site would find this teaser easy. None the less, my overall grade for this one is A+ GODD JOB and kudos to you!

Glad to see I'm not the only tainted mind I too thought "crack"

I also thought "brains" for scholars!

Great Teaser!

Very good teaser.

However, a no vote in Congress is a Nay, not a No.

Good one. It was fun.
(user deleted)
May 17, 2005

I agree about the congress one (how the answers heard are ayes and nays)- my only answer was "eyes." I did use the body part "nose" for the scholar one, i.e. "knows." I did just dandy on the others.

Very fun teaser, by the way. Thank you for sharing!

I too thought crack. It was the only answer I could think of for that one.
I am sending this one to a friend.

BU HAO!!
OldChinaHand**
May 21, 2006

I see the 'little emperor' is back in form, as usual a CWT. However, not all builders would use nails, but carpenters would be more likely to use them. And I go along on congress voting. The teaser did require a little thinking, which for me made it a good teaser. Thanks.
nu_rob_roy*sx*
May 21, 2006

A few were easy a few were hard and a couple I guessed wrong, over all good one and good on you.
vlermaAus*
May 21, 2006

Very enjoyable I also got tongue and brain, but believe it or not I tried to use an accent and made Nays into knees. Sorry folks, no offense intended. Keep up the good work and keep them coming.

There's always at least one person who has to pick a good teaser apart.
I liked this one. I liked it a lot.

Both clever and fun. Good job!

May 21, 2006

Great teaser! I have to agree with a couple others that "nay" is the actual response when voting no in Congress, but everything else was top notch.
salepriceAca*
May 21, 2006

I also had `brains` for scholars and `hammer` for builders so its nice to realise how different we all are and yet the same (?)

I don't like politics, so #2 was a bit difficult.
Wingsfan**
May 21, 2006

This one was fun to do! I got "brains" for #6 as well. I missed #9...duh!
kman613**

Smudgeza*
May 21, 2007

for the one about the whips, I thought the answer was "crack" *blushes*

Nice teaser!
Hungrygiten*
May 21, 2007

I guess you'd added that 'tongue and soul were acceptable' since the early posts. A perfect teaser! (Shamefully, I only got three!) Keep 'em coming!
HScott13Aen*
May 21, 2007

OK I admit it, the best I could come up with for the shellfish was 'winkle'. Not a problem on the shellfish front, but I suspected that part of the anatomy wouldn't be the answer on a family site. Just in case it doesn't translate into American I'm not going to explain otherwise I'll look like this: .

"Toe" is also a part of a shoe or boot... (Example: you can buy work boots with steel tipped toes).
I also got "brains" for scholars (common idiom in the US).
phyllisa*us*
May 21, 2007

Great teaser, loved it, went straight to my favorites
katamaster*
May 21, 2007

I said Brains for scholars
2ndhandroseca*
May 21, 2007

Hi , I enjoyed this one. Missed #2

A lot of comments on the shoe one, it mentions, tongue is also acceptable & others. I put "arch"
part of a foot.
#6 could be "brains"... I counted that correct.
6/10 Could not figure out #10.

GREAT TEST !!!!!!

Fun-thanks.

wayy cute

May 21, 2007

I thought 7 was brains, 8 was hammer (a bone in the ear), and 9 was crack
jodysueus*
May 21, 2007

Alright..my take is #2 is crap(as an answer)# young human, what else are baby calves?#4 GOY it Mussell..#5 feet..#6Chelsea...I'm thinkin BRAINS TOO!#7 Heel..#8MUSCLES,,, hey I REQUIRE THAT..#9skin????IT IS HUMAN...WHIPS ..LEATHER=skin............#10 SOULDERS CARRY ANY HUMAN PART,S THE LAST TIME , PRESENTLY,,,,EVEN HEADS..SAD. Hey not to be a DOWNER,,, this was fun,,, but alot could be miscontrued
aerdramaqueenAie
May 22, 2007

Fun, but I'm thinking the scholars one could also be brain and for number 2, I think voice works too. Technically it should be your voice being heard in Congress! (Even though you hit it on the spot in thinking crap...)
HOLLYSPRINGS200Aus

Jun 06, 2010

Doehead--now I see that you can be creative, too! I do agree with you some. I enjoy the new and fresh material when it appears. Repeats may be o.k. for new people and sometimes I enjoy seeing them again, too, but maybe not quite as often?
bear01Aau*
Jun 06, 2010

hehe!! I may be a few years late but gidgies post on 17th May 2004 is hilarious!! that is exactly what my head kept thinking.. haha..
I have only been braingling for a short while- so repeats are not an issue yet..
elentirAus*
Jun 07, 2010

The body part of the foot is actually spelled 'sole', not soul. Would submit correction, but another correction is currently submitted.
katamaster*
Jun 07, 2010

I came up with tongue for part of the shoe and brains for scholers.
Babe*
Jun 06, 2013

I too said hammer for #8. I thought of the hammer in the ear.
Good quiz.

Hands could also be used for number 5. It's a measure of distance used to measure the height of a horse.
HABS2933Aca*
Jun 06, 2013

I also thought of hammer for the builder one. And I am among those who take slight issue with eyes and nose as the actual terms they use are Yeah and Nay. But, whatever, overall it was a good teaser
auntiesisAus*
Jun 06, 2013

Cute one. I didn't get lashes. I don't know why I missed this one again.
Marpleen*
Jun 09, 2013

Good but you spelt soul wrong. The bottom of your foot is a sole.
