General Custer is surrounded by Indians and he's the only cowboy left.

He finds an old lamp in front of him and rubs it. Out pops a genie. The genie grants Custer one wish, with a catch. He says, "Whatever you wish for, each Indian will get two of the same thing."
Custer ponders a while and thinks:"If I get a bow and arrow they get two. If I get a rifle they get two!" He then rubs the bottle again and out pops the genie. "Well," the genie asks "have you made up your mind?"

What did Custer ask for to help him get away?

lol, Great Teaser!
Fasil*

How about to be scared half to death.

May 19, 2003

I was thinking with Fasil.
puzzled_puzzler
May 22, 2003

I also thought of Fasil's answer. Good one though.
dsquared*nz*
May 23, 2003

I also like Fasils answer, even still I love the teaser. I think the glass eye would have had a much more humourous result than everyone just dropping dead... can you picture it... they couldn't ;P .
puzzled_puzzler
May 23, 2003

On the other hand, if they all had glass eyes they ARE still able to kill you, via a lucky shot.

puzzled_puzzler, it doesn't ask what can MAKE him get away safely, it's asking what can HELP him get away safely. Oh, and sunnyfunny, you shouldn't post comment's like that, it might get removed. Gr8 teaser.

Jun 02, 2003

I thought it was that he asked for a second wish without the catch... Only because the Genie pops out in the beginning and then he's popping out again... That would give the Indians 2 wishes without a catch but then the Indians would run scared thinking it was some sort of sign from the gods !! LOL
Did I put tooooo much thought into this ??? ya think!
na-iem
Jun 02, 2003

Or what about having half of his body being paralysed for a few hours?
brainjelly
Jun 02, 2003

I would say he should of wished for a cowboy. Then each indian would have two cowboys to deal with. Fun teaser.
dadaedrum
Jun 02, 2003

he could also ask the genie to scare him HALF to death!!!
whyme*
Jun 02, 2003

i thought of a mild heart attack and the answer should be to have one eye replaced by a glass one because he could just hold it but it was good
Codammanus
Jun 02, 2003

I got the answer w/o much power used, but THIS WAS COOOL!!!
madmrriddle
Jun 02, 2003

Its really funny, because my 10 year odl sister thought of this... She said if he wishes for another cowboy, for each indian two cowboys would appear. Just thought I'd throw that in
Codammanus
Jun 02, 2003

....sORrRy, Wrong teaser. I DIDN'T get this one. But its still Cool!
stm8r1us*

He could ask for a day to rest and get a full day's head start on the Indians.

what about a kidney failure?
tissueAus*
Jun 09, 2003

How about a Mother-In-Law?
glenbo*us*
Jun 12, 2003

How about remove one of his lungs? Then the indians would die of suffucation of no air.
dsquared*nz*
Jun 12, 2003

Alrighty, so it looks like everyone's got the gist of the concept of the answer here ;). I am finding some of these extra answers rather amusing I must admit.. Tissue - tsk tsk! I love my mother-in-law ;). He could ask for one hand to be handcuffed

MysticGohan789

Good Teaser, I thought he asked the genie for a pile of rocks to fall on him
billybob_thorton*
Jun 02, 2004

He could always wish to sit through an opera.
jojocranky
Jun 02, 2004

GOOD TEASER!! like others i dint get the answer but came up with my own theory. He could wish for a broken leg, its still possible to get away wiv a broken leg. If the indians had two, it would be tooo much pain for them. oh wel i know what i mean!!
Daywalker
Jun 02, 2004

i agree with brainbelly. i was also thinking the same thing before reading the answer. why not wish for a cowboy to help him get away?
BrenBeadSP**
Jun 02, 2004

I like it just the way it is - it made me giggle to start my day, thanks.
thegermangemini*
Jun 02, 2004

Okay, since I read a joke with the same idea once, where the guy gets three wishes, but his arch enemy gets two times what he got, I went with the joke guys third wish...Beat me half to death. Oops, a tad morbid, but the joke was funny... Liked the teaser though.
witness**
Jun 02, 2004

Cheesy. this is not a teaser...it's a joke--the original joke is about getting beat half to death.
shortstopsmile
Jun 02, 2004

Awesome teaser! I thought it was just that he was blind in one eye!
shortstopsmile
Jun 02, 2004

Oh, and Witness, don't be rude!

i love brainjelly's answer!! this was a really great teaser!! it was too hard for me, but still really great!! good job!
cnmne*us*
Jun 27, 2004

I found the comments more enjoyable than the teaser itself. Oh, by the way, Custer could wish for one leg iron and a lake with four feet of water. The Indians would get 2 irons and eight feet of water. Custer could slowly walk out of the lake, but the Indians would drown.
crystalstar*
Jun 28, 2004

Well I was thinking he could ask for "50 more people to help him." because it never said that the Indians get 2 TIMES more than him, it just said that they got "2 of the same thing". So I guess he could ask for 50 people and they would only get 2 more

Jun 07, 2005

i thought it was cowboy also
something*us*

Yeah... A Cowboy would be good.

Very funny twist to the old genie joke to give it and Custer new life! I liked the variation .. too late for Custer though..
tennistripleXXX
Jun 07, 2005

I loved that one. favourite one so far! but i thought he would have wished for a cowboy then the cowboys the indians get are on his side. Hang that's stupid!
skimela*
Jun 07, 2005

i was thinking "a bear trap stuck to his leg"...i suppose there are loads of answers to this. but still, fun teaser!

Thanks for all the nice comments .
gummbypal**
Jun 07, 2005

I was trying to think of something to encapsulize them (not kill them). Maybe half a jail cell, he can walk out of his. Way to much thinking this early, good teaser.

This is Great!!!

onlyeeyore**
Jun 07, 2005

Does he need to wish for an object? How about, "I wish I was moved two miles east?" That would put the Indians two miles away from him and he could keep his eye! Whoever said earlier this teaser was bad because it had too many answers is wrong- it just makes it more fun!
Curtis*
Jun 07, 2005

'A broken leg' was my answer.

another answer would be, bad luck.
a glass eye was better though. loved the teaser the first full happy face I have EVER given.

btw: the only comment that I loled, was redneck womans.

I also liked "half dead" but glass eye works too.

BTW, Custer was a soldier not a cowboy.

Wow great teaser!
Note to people: I noticed at the top, somebody was telling somebody else not to say something because it will get deleted anyways.
Well, guess what I just discovered last month?
I can report bad comments! Woohoo! I can clean up the braingle world!

ANYWAYS.... THAT WAS SUCH A GREAT TEASER!!!!! AAAAUUUUGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...eheh...... I thought he was going to ask for a non-movable wooden leg.
Trickster1992Aen*
Jun 07, 2005

uuummm..... does anybody else here have that feature? Can anybody here tell me why before it was "this is a negative comment" and now it says "this is offensive"??
Anybody? Hello?
*sigh*
Man I wish I could come up with teasers that greight. oh wait... *great. I did get one through, but it sucks. May I ask you a few questions?
1: Whats the best type of teaser?
2: How many teasers have you submitted?
3: Do you think they should allow you to put drawings into your teaser, so people could make "visual" teasers?
4: How many points do you have?
5: Ever played a fun little message board game?
6: Why on earth is your teaser so amazingly great?
7: What else should I ask you?

Jun 07, 2005

I was also thinking of wishing for 1 cowboy, so the Indians each get 2 cowboys to deal with.

great teaser, especially because of all the different answers. i am new to this site so if anyone has any pointers, i'd love 'em.
phildunphyAen*
Jun 08, 2005

Trickster, if you click on someones name it tells you most of those things, and Ayelk it's easy to criticise when you haven't submitted a teaser yourself
Neferjeane*
Jun 08, 2005

I was thinking of a cowboy, too. But a glass eye is much more funny! Great teaser!
yagaloot***
Jun 08, 2005

Fun teaser. Don't care if it's from an old joke. I like how many answers work also. Such as, 'to have one foot in the grave.' Sorry. Fasil's seems to be best for Custer.

I liked this teaser very much! It was cute and appealed to all ages young and old. I think BABYBABE1 can keep her negative and offensive comments to herself! I'm eagerly awaiting her teaser!

Comments sure do get out of hand. I think this is a joke, but what does a Scot know of cowboys and Indians. But it was funny.

Who keep playing with these comment.
BeckyD*
Jun 07, 2006

This was a really fun teaser, and I like all the additional solutions posed here in the comments, too! My first guess would be an hour's sleep. Then, the Indians would be asleep for another hour, while Custer (being rested) could get away unnoticed. He'd keep his eye, and wouldn't endanger the lives of any cowboys... Still, I give this one five stars!!*****
bambam*

I would wish for an American Soldier.

So many possible answers but the glass eye answer is funny! Good wake up, get your brain going, fun!

Thanks!
kimnbri
Jun 07, 2006

There are hundreds of possible answers if you think about it. He could have wished himself half dead, to be half lame, to have partial memory loss, how about wishing for an american soldier. the possibilities are very intriguing.
BRIAN
shawneeo*us*
Jun 07, 2006

Yeah, that's pretty good, although it's on a thin line between a joke and a teaser, but I guess still a teaser. Custer wasn't really a "cowboy", he WAS an American Soldier. He was in the military. I don't know where this cowboy notion came from. Except that you always hear about "cowboys and Indians".

Racist? I don't know. The Indians did win the last one with him. But if I was Native American I might not be very happy about this. Yes, I know, "it's just a teaser, blah blah blah" Fine, but like I said, maybe IF I was "just" an "Indian" I wouldn't like it much.

cool & clever teaser.
katn255*
Jun 07, 2006

Custer didn't ask for one of his eyes to be replaced with a glass eye, so wouldn't the indians just be holding 2 glass eyes, with their normal ones still in their sockets? Then they could throw them @ him and he would die from severe injuries to the head. Nice scenario, isn't it?
miss_mary_bus

I thought he asked for a day of blindness...

Fun teaser.

The comments are definitely as amusing as the teaser itself!
auntiesisAus*
Jun 07, 2006

I must be very morbid or sick, I thought he should wish one of his hands would fall off. Then the Indians would lose both hands. Bloody mess. What was I thinking? Any way, I liked your answer better thanmine, or anybody elses for that matter. Keep up the good work.
scallioAus*
Jun 07, 2006



That's hilarious! I was thinking along the lines of 1 broken leg or to be shot in 1 knee.

Loved this fun teaser!

vlermaAus**
Jun 07, 2006

So many comments, some good, some not so good. I thought this one was another real groaer. Funny, enjoyable, whether it was a rewritten joke or whatever. The answer was a hoot! Nice job. As for racist, this is a fun family site and if you can't laugh at yourself then you don't belong here I don't like the poorly shortened reference in that particular quotation. How did this slip by without someone else objecting? Keep it clean folks!
hamsterchc
Jun 07, 2006

this really was a joke
tho i heard it a couple times and it was normally something along the lines of
a ___ man found a lamp and rubbed it
a --- genie came out and went u get 3 wishes but whatever u wish for my race gets 2
so the man ask for a car a mansion and then to be beaten half to death
its a mean joke but ive heard like atleast 3 different races use it so it evens out right?

You are right, Kweestyaye got away with something way over the edge. I wanted to report the comment to "the authorities" whoever and wherever they are, but I couldn't figure out how.

Fasil's wrong anyway. If you were to be scared half to death twice, you'd be left with a quarter of yourself.

I went with "cowboy" - and liked the "scared 1/2 to death" suggestion - but definitely a good one.

I thought of striking hime blind
and then running like stink. It's sound even sillier written down. But close with the eyes.

When I saw the answer I cracked up. EXCELLENT

Jun 07, 2007

Fun teaser I'd have to disagree with the others that said "to be scared half to death". The Indians would just be scared half to death twice. I've been scared half to death many times. I think he really had to ask for someTHING. BTW, I like the "wife" answer, too - or maybe "mother-in-law"...

That one was kinda confusing but I

LeonRes-Evil2*us*

I was thinking he would ask for "a wooden leg". They would all get two, and he could get away faster.

khedronAus*
Jun 07, 2007

I want to add my voice to the people bringing up the fact that Custer was not a cowboy, he was a soldier. Also, he was not a general, as stated in the question, he was a lieutenant colonel. He was temporarily a brigadier general during the Civil War, but this was a temporary rank that was rescinded at the end of the war. At the time of his death, he was, as I said, a lieutenant colonel.
oxymoron
Jun 07, 2007

doehead, last time I checked. comments were not used to slam or diss other people. It's to praise or to criticize in a nice manner. Yes you can tell the truth, but do it respectively!
oxymoron
Jun 07, 2007

Oh, && AWESOME teaser by they way! I loved it! But I too thought that he wished to be beat half to death!
zaya*
Jun 07, 2007

I thought bullets (Custer used guns, Indians used bow & arrow so bullets would be useless). Either way a bad teaser with too many possible answers.
breathesunshineAus*
Jun 07, 2007

I thought I had it right away when I said he should wish for another soldier of course! I had to laugh at the answer. Good one!

Won't do a bit of good if they are all holding a glass eye in their hands...no one ever said the glass eyes would replace their existing eyes. And I wouldn't get so hot and bothered about being "plagerized" I'm betting the "original" was just as lame.

The answer wasn't too good. I've heard many variations on this riddle, and my favorite answer by far is a 100 degree temperature.

If they Indians got scared half to death, then half to death again, they'd still be 25% alive!

The half-to-deaths would have to be simultaneous and not overlap

Theres like, a gazillion answers to this... My friend told me this one before, but his answer was "I wish to donate a kidney." His sounds more reasonable.

Zaya, the Native Americans that Custer fought actually had better guns than his soldiers, one of the many reasons for his loss.

This was a Wonderful Teaser, and so many comments, but there is only one perfect answer to this teaser.

I of course got the perfect Answer. That is: A Day of Rest....
A Cowboy trained to kill Indians. He would have ONE day of Rest, giving the Indians TWO days of Rest. He would get One Cowboy trained to Kill Indians and each Indians would have to fend off TWO cowboys trained to kill Indians.

Excellent Teaser. I just wished he could have created a different subject matter and not Indians.

I was thinking he wanted to be a mile away from the place. That would place him at least a mile away from any indian.

I second shannmo. Tissue and Trickster, you guys are hilarious. I thought of the broken leg thing but I like the answer that he wishes for a cowboy better.

LOL, Good teaser, old joke. Gen. Custer was a General, not a cowboy.

That glass eye answer is bad. I thought of wishing for a cowboy too, that answer is much much better.

Meh. Too many possibilities. Plus I don't understand why Custer's in India.

This is an old one with a new variation. Custer was a General, but not considered a cowboy. Any way I can see why there are so many repeats. Not enough people try their hand at it because of all the bad comments. If I was younger, I would try!

The version I know - in a rich neighborhood a person gets an offer from e Wizard : .. anything you want provided your next-to-door neighbors get double what you've got...

Your version is less "politically correct"

Not only does the creator of this teaser claim it as their own, but there are several commenters that claim the teaser was stolen from them ("I made it up over a year ago") - well funny how a teaser that is only a few years old was told to me 30 years ago! lol
Of course the characters have been changed the one I heard featured a man and his bitter soon to be ex wife and and he got three wishes. After wising for great wealth and expensive "toys" he asked to be scared half to death, not only ensuring his coming out on the winning end of the divorce, but as her legal husband, most likely inheriting all the things she just obtained too.
I did not care for this teaser, never have even in the versions past as there are WAY too may possible answers. I am surprised the editors allowed this to pass, I have had teasers rejected for that reason even when in reality there was only 1 answer.

How about a strong desire for peace?

The Indians' would then have a doubly strong desire and they'd all live happily ever after
