Dec 07, 2004

In the UK , the boot is part of the car. What the americans call the trunk.

thought that teaser was fairly pointless. y dont they have ne good teasers on this site????

Jan 15, 2005

It was good but instead of being , but it should have been 'Sticker Bum Sticker Bum' instead of 'Sticker Sticker Bum Bum.' I liked the thought of the teaser though. The ending was funny too!

that was very good, ix. all of you posers (or the more "hardcore" poseurs) that don't realize the genius of ixi need to not participate in the feedback.

Jan 15, 2005

it was ok, but i've heard the same teaser before with a different answer. the answer then was pin the tail on the donkey. an asss is a donkey, and bum is another wierd word for your but or your asss. o well, it was pretty good i guess.

UK idiosyncrosies aside, what the heck does "the boat" got to do with bumper stickers? Even if you meant 'trunk', you sure can't put stickers on it, unless you're into a new paint job.
shawneeo*us*
Jan 22, 2006

hA ha ha haaaaa!!!!!

Very funny! I wish you could take the same idea somehow but not use the two words that make the answer, because once I saw bum and sticker I knew what it had to be. I didn't even read the clue.
But, it was good, very funny, Thanks!

I thought this was a very very very good one, and it made me LOL!!
For those who think there aren't "ne good ones" on this site, or don't have anything positive uplifting to say, perhaps you need to find somewhere else to go to smother others with your negativity? Just a thought. Don't mothers teach that Golden Rule anymore? "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all".
smee*
Jan 22, 2006

WTG, Speediebean! Ditto! You just took the words right outta my mouth! I thought this was a bit easy, but cute and funny. I'm just trying to ignore the fact that some people are just annoying, with all their negativity.

BTW... how's your day going, Speedie?

Hee, hee I liked this one ALOT Very funny. Even once I saw the answer I had to think for a minute and then it was, like, HAH!
mnl4312
Jan 22, 2006

Das good. I thought the answer should be 'One bumper sticker' instead of 'A bumper sticker' since there was, really, one Bum per Sticker. Later.

I Liked it a lot! (how do you come up with the ideas? I wish I knew)
crzyness4lyfe**

good one! i liked it! =D
formation007*
Jan 22, 2006

same here really, as soon as i saw bum and sticker without even reading the clue, it was obviously going to be "bumper sticker."

i was thinking "the boat", too. i didn't know you were british.
i liked it. to all you negative people, come up with some lame teaser and put out there and then we'll all be sure to rate it stupidestestest teaser in the whole wide world and then you'll know how it feels. really, you all probably still live with your mothers, too.

Lucasgal**
Jan 22, 2006

That was a good one!
iteachkidsAus*
Jan 22, 2006

Totally HILARIOUS! Luckily, I had not actually read the title, "Das Boot," or I may have been thrown WAY off. But now that people are asking - doesn't it refer to "the bootie," otherwise known as "the hind end," otherwise known as "the bum"?
By the way, Mean People, go rain on someone else's parade!!!

MrIxoliteAen*

Thanks for all the comments guys! Even the negative ones make me smile . Just to clarify, in the UK (where I hail from) the trunk of a car is known as the Boot. Glad most of yoyu liked it

I didn't get it but saw the answer then oh duh I think I still have to get used to these teasers I don't have much practice
vlermaAus**
Jan 22, 2006

Boy oh boy! What a hoot! Again I was lost, but LOL at the answer. And please, all you nay sayers, maybe someone should use high plains deplomacy with you. When you can do better, step up to the plate. In other words someone should tell you to go to Hades in such a nice way that you will look forward to the trip. I, myself loved the treaser

some of u poeple on this site r obviosly mean and un thoughtful i happened to think this was a good one but just because some of u r PMSing does not give u the right to atack poeple because u arent smart enough to get the teaser they made!!!

cherrie0110 i think thats who i meant i kno ive been very critisizing myself but i hate it when peeps go out of their way to be hateful im not trying to be hateful and im sorry if thats the way u took it but i hate haters!!!!!

okay...it's one thing to criticize...it's another to put someone down....

I LOVED IT! And becuz so many ppl are meanies (haha i luv that word) i'm adding it to my faves. 5 stars, two thumbs way up

paul726Aus*
Jan 22, 2006

I thought it was excellently done. I decided that my brain power was sufficiently depleted today and looked at the answer before I solved it, but I did get the 'boot' meaning before I read your comment on that. I found it entertaining all around.
WJSMama**
Jan 22, 2006

That was cute and pretty easy. I liked it a lot. I guess I'm lucky that I don't usually pay attention to the title of the teasers. To all the people saying nasty things, if you don't like the teaser, just don't comment and go on to the next one. There are some here that you probably would like. Or if you must criticize, be constructive

When an indian makes a trip to 'mystery spot' in CA they give a bumperstcker which they immediately stick to the boot of their new honda/camry. This is what this reminded me off !

pretty cool.

I laughed out loud when I saw this teaser! This site is getting to sound like a bunch of little kids fighting with each other over nothing. After 38 wonderful years of teaching I'm ready to leave behind from that aspect of it. I think I'll quit reading the comments (although I've often gleaned some interesting information from the intelligent ones). I'll just go on enjoying the teasers, which is why I've come to this site in the first place.

MrIx as usual is just a little harder for me to figure out. Is it the fact that we are from diff. countries? I dunno. Good one, it should have been so obvious, but it wasn't . I really liked it, even though it made my brain sweat. Keep up the good work.

Yes it was punny, but "The Boot" would have been okay - NOT "The Boat"??? That was really confusing.

I actually don't know whether I like or dislike this rebus... Even worse, I got the answer without understanding why... I was at a complete loss and the only thing I could think of was the answer without understanding it.

I eventually read the answer and groaned... not sure whether to be pleased with getting the answer or at the silliness as to why it was the answer and not understanding it for a couple minutes.

I knew a trunk in G.Brit. was a trunk but I still didn't get this one.
Made me think tho.
The title stumped me.
Can we all get along here, I think some people could use a Boot , Oops! I meant Boost !.....

Good Teaser !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I meant to say I knew a BOOT in Great Britain was a trunk. My 1st thought tho was "Sticker Bum"
The old trick of the sticker on the but "saying KICK ME"

"Boot" means "Boat" and is pronounced "Boat," not "Boot,"

Thanks for all the comments. Even the bad ones. (Keeps me laughing)
Strange that the title has caused so much debate, when the titles are hardly important. I could have just called it Teaser #356 but that would have been dull. My teasers are written with fun in mind and are not supposed to be University entrance exams. If you can't have fun in life then what's the point Keep smiling

I think the Americans in the crowd don't understand the 'tongue in cheek' nature of Das Boot...but you could easily have the sticker on the 'trunk' of one of their elephantine cars...of course if it was on the back-end of a U-boat and you tried to read it you'd get screwed !..BTW I live in Dallas, so don't think I'm anti-merican...i just think this site should be fun !

I knew this one already, but my daughter laughed pretty good. I can't believe that if you think it was a waste of your time the first time that you would go back through the comments to find your comment from lst time and spend the time to put it down again. Just doesn't seem too smart to me.
elentirAus*
Apr 26, 2010

I thought I would throw in my thoughts about the title and why it seems to be causing so much trouble. Das Boot is a specific and popular german phrase referring to a submarine. It doesn't translate at all in english to a trunk or boot regardless of what version of english you speak. When I read the title, my mind instantly focused on the submarine relationship and the rebus stumped me as a result. A little frustrating, but I'll get over it. I do get the point you were going for over having a generic title. But the confusion it's causing is likely from mixing three different cultures and a puzzle all at the same time via a simple title. I'm now curious if I would have had solved the rebus with a generic title.

The comments are funnier than the teaser. People complain about someone else'a comment and then do the same thing themselves by puting the complainer down. Round and round it goes. Now that is funny!
gaylewolfAus*

I like puns, so this teaser was cute! A little bit corny, too!

Apr 24, 2013

As far as the comments go, I get a kick out of the people who complain about a teaser being repeated then they repeat their own complaints years later.
