Im an idiot, for about a minut after reading it, i went to "Dictionary.com" too see what deef means...........then i read deef backwords, and understood the answer!!! Whoopie!

Classic, thanks for sharing.

Dang, everytime I read one of your rebuses, I think there is no way it could get any better! But the next time I see one I say the same thing! Great rebus!

Explain this, please. Someone explain
halfmoonscott*
Oct 22, 2005

Kind of lame. The word feed spelled backwards is feed spelled backwards, not feedback. I mean it's similar, but a rebus should be more exact.
solidgordy*
Oct 22, 2005

I actually got this!!!!!!! I was about to give up, then I read the hint, which didn't exactly tell me, but gave me a little more time, then it clicked. Now, now, naysayers, deef could be a million other things too, reverse feed, deep minus a p, I mean, I don't think they can be that exact, or it would be more like a math problem. I enjoyed this, I would have liked it even if I didn't get it, Thanks.
medster99*

i agree with half moon

Where do U get these things?!!? I have never been able to understand these until I see the answer; then it seems so clear. Good One!!!

It was ok, but it didn't make very much sense.
dede*
Oct 22, 2005

great job I think the point behind teasers and such is a little imagination can go a long way. To be perfectly exact would make this a science not a fun way to excercise ones brain. Thanks to all of you who make your own and to all who try them. Congrats

victort21*ca*
Oct 22, 2005

I got the DEEF part, but the + part threw me. All I could think of was "plus" or "add". I couldn't think of a phrase with the word feedback. Good one though!

i should have tried harder.....i was too quick to just see what the answer was. very clever!

EXCELLENT TEASER
and nick, check the bible, everything god did was GOOD
anyway, this was very clever and fun
dsquared*nz*
Oct 23, 2005

Thanks so much for all the DEEF +, and - . It's rare that you can make a teaser that will makey everyone happy. I will say for all those who had some - DEEF to give and issues with clarity that it's possible you may not have been through all that many rebus teasers. using the 'deef' and it's meaning of 'back' is a fairly simple and common way of representing a word with a rebus. Sure, it could be feed backwards or feed going back or whatever as with any synonyms. However finding the correct one is what solving any teaser is about. Thanks for all the comments
lorelle_b*us*
Oct 23, 2005

YES!!!! I'm soooo bad at rebus...and I finally got one! YAY!!!!
FulanitoGM*sv*
Oct 24, 2005

Okay, first off, let me just say that getting the daily teaser e-mailed to you can be a mistake sometimes, because something gets lost in the translation, so to speak. When I got this e-mail, it didn't even have the "+" in front of "deef." I figured the answer had something to do with "feedback," but I was a little confused. Then I clicked on the link to see the answer, and right before I read the answer, I saw the "+" and I solved it.

Second, and lastly, I liked this teaser. I agree with the author: it doesn't have to be a literal translation for us to figure out the saying. I figured it out, and I'm about 40% on all teasers. It ain't that hard, people.
Haylie1506*

This was a GREAT teaser! Loved it!

Oct 26, 2005

Thanks so much and thanks for sharing your thoughts FulanitoGM.

Dec 07, 2005

i can't believe i didn't get that :/
i saw the answer and i'm looking at it going where on earth did you get "feedback" from for that :/

Thanks Magnum. It's been rather a while since I submitted one, I must throw another one together soon.

Oct 23, 2006

CUTE, BUT ANOTHER RE-RUN. IF THERE ARE NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT THIS "TEASER," WILL THE AUTHOR BE OFFENDED? (HE MAY BE LONG GONE, ( 2 YEARS AGO)

HOW ABOUT MY SUBMISSION, I HAVEN'T HEARD A WORD, IT MAY NOT BE WORTH MUCH, BUT IT ISN'T A RE-RUN THAT I AM AWARE, BUT THEN I DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING, I JUST GIVE THAT IMPRESSION (hehe).
BeckyD*
Oct 23, 2006

I think this is a really cute, and fun teaser!! Although it was pretty easy to solve after a couple of minutes of thought, it seems like SOME people, WHO WANNA TYPE IN ALL CAPS WITH NEGATIVE ATTITUDES want to put it down.... I give it 5 stars ***** for being one that doesn't frustrate an old fart like me!!
dsquared*nz*
Oct 23, 2006

lmurray. I've had too many negative comments on teasers by now to be offended and to answer your question with my comment here, I have been sighted more recently than 2 yrs though that was only on some documentary about Big Foot . Not sure what you mean by this being a re-run but rebuses are a bit like that anyway, a lot of the trick to solving them is knowing which rules to apply to get the answer - thanks for stopping by .
dsquared*nz*
Oct 23, 2006

BeckyD... I'm very pleased you liked it... from one old fart to another . Oh and I was wondering why I was getting a bunch of comments on this teaser and then realised it's TOTD ... yay for it! .

This was not only a good teaser but represents something there just too little of... Enjoyed it and thanks.

Easy for me this morning, but I really liked it! I think that this is one of those categories that you get better at with practice. Thanks for submitting!
dsquared*nz*
Oct 23, 2006

Thanks Badger and you are sooo right about getting better at it with practice. It goes the other way too... I haven't submitted one of these for a long time and I have tried to come up with some recently... complete blank

dsquared, since you're responding to so many comments today -- can you tell me why the phrase "this is offensive" appears with each comment? Thanx

Oct 23, 2006

I just want to add one more thing. I love reading all the different and diverse comments on here. It's fun to see what people think. Heck if all of us agreed,it would make a very boring world!

Oct 23, 2006

I GOT IT, I LIKED IT, IT WAS CUTE.
I just wanted to typed in ALL CAPS like so many others in the comments.

But really, it was a good teaser. Made me think, but not too hard. Just the way I like them.

Oct 23, 2006

We have an expression hung in this office, with this expression on it. Honestly, this is an Awesome teaser, and there is return feed back at you. Have a totally Awesome day, ALL!
dsquared*nz*
Oct 23, 2006

Wow... timezones are funny things. It obviously became a new day somewhere in the world rather recently - let me guess, the US maybe? . Yet again, thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know what you thought. rhmaustin the 'this is offensive' link is to report those who would choose to post something that resembles unthought out abuse as opposed to + DEEF or - DEEF. It's on every teaser's comments on the site. I have no problem with people saying they didn't like it, anyone is entitled to their opinion but freedom of speech doesn't equate to freedom of tongue which I is the main reason Jake set this feature up.
dsquared*nz*
Oct 23, 2006

I loved the clever comments that some posted, thank you and Pizzazz2u all I can say is Wow that's amazing that some teaser I wrote is part of something hung in someone's office cubicle somewhere in the world - thanks you've made my day

Got this fairly easily, but it was good fun. Mybe if it had
been -DEEF, I might have taken a little more time. All the same, this goes into my favourites.

Another Rebus TOTD (though I'm over a month behind in my Braingle emails) to make me feel unworthy....

I'm sure practice will help, and perhaps more patience than I'm willing to give -- maybe if I stop thinking I can't do these, I actually will be able to do more of them.
xsmx
Dec 24, 2006

hahah whoa i was SOO off with that one lol. but GOOD JOB!
dsquared*nz*
Jan 07, 2007

Thanks for the comments. Yes, Qrystal, rebuses are classic 'practice' types of teasers and definitely require patience. They are the sort where the answer will kind of just fall into place either immediately or after moving things around in your head a bit and considering it from different angles... kind of like deciding the best way to arrange furniture in a room
princessptAus*
Sep 28, 2007

haha i looked at this teaser twice in the same week and STILL didnt get it.... wow i'm slow......
dsquared*nz*
Oct 03, 2007

That's a good one princesspt, thanks for sharing. I've done the same thing myself, struggle to solve a teaser, then come back to it another time and you've fogotten the solution.

I did not get it, but seldom do. I thought it was clever and wish I had figured it out. Good teaser. So many people, so many different takes on it and so many unpleasant remarks by unhappy people who need to figure out why they are so grumpy! It feels better to laugh about it! SMILE!!!
