I agree with Babe. I liked that teaser, but would have appreciated about a dozen examples. Thanks!

Like others, I enjoyed the teaser, it was fun.. But with only two of them, not very challenging. I am actually surprised the editors allowed it, have submitted teasers before and was told i had to have AT LEAST FIVE for it to be approved. Maybe that is a newer requirement as this is an old teaser.

Extremely easy; two seconds of fun!! Must have been hard to create, the reason only two. More would have been great fun!

Usually I see when I've already commented ('09) and don't do it again. This time I totally missed myself, and didn't remember doing it before! (But easy and fun first time too!!)

I agree with everybody that it was fun and easy, and more would have been even better.

To BB-BB02- LGM. We all know you are the same sick person, so why don't you do us all a favor and visit the EXTERMINATOR. And disappear forever.

Sleep for over 1/3 of our lives - you mean you sleep more than 8 hours per night? Must be nice!

Enjoyed this one very much.

Excellent teaser.

"dumbbell" - who has not been on for about six years - was a contemporary and a friend of Dad's (the original BadBunnee) - and was quite prolific. She was an editor, had over 60 teasers published, and was very helpful to new presenters.

Here's some more facts:

Today's TOTD:

Eleven (11) comments in 2009
Eight (0 comments in 2012
Five (05) comments thus far (2015)

Can anybody spell t-r-e-n-d ??

And newly published teasers are not getting comments. You have to go back as far as October of last year to see any comments over single digits.

Don't just cavil (don't bother to look it up .. you won't like it) at my publishing of the facts.

Go to "all" - to the left on your screen - and check it for yourself. Most newly submitted teasers have fewer than four (04) comments.

And ... to doodley ....

I have reported your comment as "offensive". I think to suggest that I be "killed" (synonym for "exterminated" - and you CAN look this one up) is totally offensive and inappropriate.

We CAN do something about avoiding demise of Braingle - if only all of you would take a serious and candid approach. There ARE answers.

(in the meantime) ... KEEP

Nice teaser, easy and fun. Thnx for the message Babe, glad you're here.

I stand by my previous comment. Fun, easy, and not enough.

LGM, Please take the long(and often off topic) diatribes to the forum pages where they belong. This way they will perhaps get the attention you seem to feel necessary.
