It would have made a lot more sense if the other three said "no comment" or "no answer" ... I didn't understand what the teaser was getting at.

Feb 24, 2006

Well I get some and some I don't. This one went right over my head. I didn't look at the title or I wouldn't have thought that Herb did it. Needed to figure out "the phrase." Good one

I liked this one.Took a lot of thought, and actually made sense.Good JoB!!
shawneeo*us*
Feb 24, 2006

This was good, and funny! I didn't try very hard this morning, which, *clear throat*, is quite rare for me...

However, even though I do like it a lot, I agree with the person above that "no comment" or something would have worked better than "...", because that doesn't mean "nothing", and it seems like you're saying the first three said the same thing. But I do think its very clever to use the thyme as time in the parsley sage rosemary thyme group, that was a GREAT idea!

For me, this one was a toughie... when I saw the answer, I thought, "Duh!!" Excellent teaser! I never would have got this one in a million years! (Maybe it's because even though I've heard that phrase before, I personally hardly ever use it.)
bootscooter58*us*
Feb 24, 2006

Good job -- very well done. I too was thinking of the old song Greensleeves, and when that got in my head I could think of nothing else. So needless to say, I didn't get it Thanks so much and keep them coming.

Feb 24, 2006

I new it immediately after I read it, and I thought it was very cute. Some teasers are just "thymeless"!
Good job!

I didn't get this one, poor me.
It was very clever and fun though!
precious1026Aus*
Feb 24, 2006

I loved this Teaser. With the answer right in my face, I was unable to answer correctly. Only thyme will tell. Keep them coming, as long as they're as good as Talking Herbs..... Ha, Ha, Ha.

Feb 24, 2006

at 1st i didn't get it but then i read the answer and i did
nasanerd13**
Feb 24, 2006

I didn't like it that well kind of boring would have been better if you had the other herbs saying, "I'm not telling" or something like that it was ok I guess after I got the answer I found it kinda funny...

Good teaser!! I got it but my husband had no clue. He always gets stuff right and usually it is me that has trouble so I am happy.

I really liked this teaser. Great job!!!

This one really stumped me! It made me think but I gave up to easily.
Badger*us*
Feb 24, 2007

Ditto Shawneeo, et. al. but I still thought it was a fun teaser! I jumped a little too quickly and went with "Time is against me" for my answer. Thanks for submitting.

Feb 24, 2007

A very entertaining teaser! You did a fantastic job on this one, and only because I have heard this one from a song, have I recorded it in my memory for future use. Keep up the fantastic work! I enjoy teasers of this nature.
karenokupniakus*
Feb 24, 2007

Good one. Not sure why it invoked thoughts of "Greensleeves" for some readers, but Simon & Garfunkel would get a huge kick out this if you could email it to them.
marschie*il*
Feb 24, 2007

I realy liked this -- and I got it right away!

Feb 24, 2007

Uh, oh! Really is really spelled really! Sorry for the typo.
bradon182001*us*
Feb 24, 2007

I still think its cute and a good teaser.
GobyDude*
Feb 24, 2007

There should have been more directions. I thought I had to fill in what the other herbs were saying.
phyllisa*us*
Feb 24, 2007

Great one, didn't get it. I thought of Simon & Garfunkel too.
LeafFan4life*
Feb 24, 2007

Excellent job! Took some thinking, and "spiced-up" my morning.
peeve30*
Feb 24, 2007

This was a cute one! Keep em coming!
craniacAus*
Feb 24, 2007

Would have been clearer if the other herbs (besides thyme) each said "No comment" or "I'm not tellilng" or something like that.
katjojoAus*
Feb 24, 2007

That was cute!!

Feb 24, 2007

"whoever did the rhyme did the crime" i thought... it rhymed with thyme so yeah

interesting yet fun... good teaser
breathesunshineAus*
Feb 24, 2007

Once I got the Simon and Garfunkel song in my head it was all I could think of! Aghhh! Dandy little teaser!
jimbo58A
Feb 24, 2007

Hasn't this one been on here before? I remember it from somewhere...
(user deleted)
Feb 24, 2007

I thought i was suposed to fill in the dots, you shoud really put, I am not saying, or I don't know, not..... which suggests a piece that you have to figure out.
Otherwise, it was a great teaser, but the bigger teaser was finding out what the teaser was.
speedqueenkmwAus*
Feb 25, 2007

what does "Who stole the gold" have to do with this teaser? I was confused-as usual.
cassiemarkAus*
Feb 26, 2007

Very cute! Got it right away!
QrystalAca*
Feb 28, 2007

I'm with breathesunshine .... the song's in my head, and that's all there was room for as I was puzzling over the teaser. I'm also several days behind in the TOTD emails, so I'm just trying to hurry through....

Very cute teaser though! kudos!

I was thinking something to do with "Scarbourough Fair"!

lol GW, That was the first thing that popped into my head (and is still there) which is unfortunate, not because I missed the teaser, but because I cannot stand Simon and Garfunkel.

A little corny,but it SPICED up my morning.
