It was Louis Ixolite's bedtime and as usual he wanted a bedtime story.
He was a bright young man and had managed to communicate in Rebuses before he could speak.
Daddy asked Louis which story he would like to hear and Louis scribbled down the following Rebus in crayon.

Soybeans "blah blah blah"
Jack "blah blah blah"
Kidneybeans "blah blah blah"

What story did Louis want to hear?




What Next?

Easy.


If Jack wasn't there, I bet it would have been harder, I guess.

I knew the answer was jack in the beanstalk but I didn't know how it came out to be that .

I agree with cheesepie. I knew the answer, but don't understand the rebus. Are there two answers to it: Jack and the Bean stalk, AND Jack and the beans talk?

Brandon, the answer is "Jack and the Bean stalk". The explanation of the rebus is "Jack and the beans talk".

I knew it was "Jack and the Beanstalk" without figuring out the rebus.

Rockstar, please explain yesterday's comment - "Buffalo, buffalo...." sentence. Thanks!

This one was SO simple, mainly because of "Jack" - to make it tougher, you could change the name to John, since Jack is short for John (somehow I didn't invent the English language, I simply utilise it).

Of course, just as many would then scream it's too hard since they don't know the John/Jack connection as you have saying it's too easy.

Gayle - that one's way above my level to explain in simple terms, but it basically revolves around buffalo being usable as a noun (the animal), verb (meaning to bully) and proper noun being used as an adjective (as in from the city of Buffalo). "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" means that some bison bully the bison from the city of Buffalo. The REALLY long sentence is confusing to explain, so I'll let wiki do the talking.

For those of you interested, rockstar1009 and gaylewolf are referring to my teaser #48628; Buffalo: Revisited.

Thank you, rockstar, for the added help.

Thank you, RockStar, and you also, BB02, for the explanation and the additional link. I really enjoyed and appreciated your help. I'm still a little baffled about how to read the Buffalo, buffalo sentence so it makes sense to me. But, thanks, anyway!! I guess that's called the buffalo baffle

Rockstar, I too thought that subbing John for Jack would make more challenging. Though it was easy it was still clever.

More old ones and too easy also. Are there no new ones around? I don't know how to do them or I would try. I have a hard enough time doing what I do now. Sigh!

Babe, do you need help finding teasers you haven't seen?
HABS2933Aca*
Aug 10, 2014

There are plenty of new ones - just look at the "recently submitted teasers" list to the right.
And given the first teaser appeared in 2001, and there are currently 1063 pages of teasers with 15 teasers per page plus two additional teasers on page 1064, that means there are 15,947 teasers on the site. There must be thousands that have never been used as TOTD.

I got it without realizing the logic behind it. Having seen the answer and the logic behind it, I'm quite amused and entertained
