During the Am. Civil War, boys under the age of 18 would enlist in the armies, standing on a piece of paper in their shoes, with 18 written on it; so they could swear they were over eighteen. Good teaser, fish.

Child's joke; not a brainteaser.

To those who liked it, thanks. To those who did not, sorry. To those who say I got it from a book, one of my kids told me, so I did not know where it came from.

This is plagiarized from the book Mensa Brain Twisters.

If you say so, I have never seen the book, nor heard of it until today, in your note. I got it from one of my kids.

Like someone else commented, I thought the answer was 'any word' because you said to write 'any word' on the paper. Still really good!

AROB. This one was so easy that my neighbors puppy figured it out in 4 1/2 seconds. A special hello to GnMi

Jul 23, 2011

I don't usually get "tricks", and even I got this one immediately!! And if it did come from Mensa Brain Twisters, then SOMEbody thought it was worth asking!!

hahaha love this one
katamaster*
Jul 25, 2011

I thought of the answer and said it is too dumb to be it. This is one of the worst teasers in a while.
kittygirl19tus*
Sep 15, 2011

You like mensa?
fishmedAus*
Sep 17, 2011

Sometimes an answer that is 'too dumb to be it' is really it, which is the basic jist of a trick teaser. Thanks to those who liked it, hope you find something you do like to those who did not like it and have a good day to all...

Jul 23, 2014

I have to agree with both of doehead's comments. 2008 & 2011. It was so easy it did not take any thinking at all.
I know things do not come easy for some people and a lot of time for me, but this one....

Picanumba .....

Pic-a-u-nose-a .....

HILARIOUS (and VERY creative) Teaser.

And .... to those of you (who didn't get the "gist" of it) and who manufacture ALL SORTS of excuses therefore .....

Pic-a-u-somethingelse-a



And check out the "Online Now" stats below. Fewer than 300.

Bad ... really bad.

So do we wait until Braingle goes on "life-support" ?????
