unnatural! great!

It neither sports brown echidnas or koalas but it might have apples.

drunky, if you got baghdad, you need to go back to elementry school and redo the math. if you multiply a number from the set 1-10, by 9, your answer will always add together to get 9... 18, 27, 36... take off 5 and you are forced every time to get 4 or D. baghdad does not start with d, nor is it a country.

How did this get accepted? It's not even a teaser!
Oct 11, 2005

I also thought of Dominican Republic, but my animals were the Ostrich and Chinchilla??
Nov 17, 2005

I thought of Denmark but my animal was also an Emu. This is some sort of joke thats been on the net for years. Doesn't this violate some rule of Braingle?
Dec 24, 2005

It's so obvious how this works! Any multiple of 9 when the didgits added up = 9 and 9-5 will always = 4 and d is the 4th letter in the aplphabet. Then Denmark gray elephants and orangle kangaroos are the most common - ( i agree how did this get approved???)
Dec 24, 2005

I used Djibouti, jaguar (black), and spaced on the fruit. Yes, this is an old brain teaser, from before the days of USENET, let alone the Web. The Braingle editors do sometimes approve interesting conginitive tricks.

Also, keep in mind that the editors do update the rules and standards as necessary. They rarely maintain the site by retroactively applying new standards to approved teasers -- they have better things to do with their time, such as keeping up with the backlog of submitted teasers, PMs, and other, proactive site maintenance. Considering what they get paid, I'm not complaining.

I just sent in a correction to add a "note" in the answer. If it gets accepted you can read it.
Aug 02, 2006

I thought of an eagle..

Easy to outsmart

Just uses the general average. Up to the point it asks you to think of a country, it is completely controlled - anything between one and ten multiplied by nine will have one or two digits that add up to 9

I went right through it with nothing correct
Jan 27, 2008

I got Dominican Republic, ostrich, brown, cat, and apple. (Well, I wasn't quite sure what color ostriches are, but I'm pretty sure there are brown ones.)
Sep 10, 2011

I thought of Dubai. Then an urchin, although I wasn't sure what color urchins are. Then an iguana. Then a nectarine.

But then I wasn't sure if Dubai actually counted as a country.

So I went Denmark. Brown eagle. Koala apple.
