BELIEVE IT OR NOT, "I" LIKED IT.

AND YES BOWSPRINT IS A COMMON WORD.

Bowsprit was the first word that came to my mind also - had to look at the answer to see "newspaper". Wonder what that says?
jabdrAus*

Cute-cute-cute! I went 'arrghh! when I read the answer. MORE!
shawneeo*us*
Mar 09, 2006

That was good, although I would have liked a few like that together. I didn't get it, but didn't try because aside from searching with computer how do you find something like that? And newspaper is waaaaaaaay more common than bowsprit or whatever the word is because I saw a few different spellings above. Thanks!

not common either, but NEWSPEAK, deliberately ambiguous and contradictory language used to mislead and manipulate the public.

Mar 09, 2006

This was a great teaser! I didn't get it and had to look up the answer, and when I saw what it was... newspaper... I thought, "Well, DUH!!" And BTW... what in the world is a "bowsprint" or "bowsprit?" I've never in my life heard that word, and I've been around the block a few times...
AralditeAus*
Mar 09, 2006

How about newsprint? It's more common than bowspirit.
pat56*us*

Good job,even though I didn't get it I thought that I would still add my opinion.I think that people on here shouldn't say anything if they can't say something nice about people's teasers.I haven't seen one yet that someone hasn't said something negative.I think you done good so keep up the good work.

Assess

Banana

Dresser

Grammar

Answer:

In All Of The Words Listed, If You Take The First Letter, Place It At The End Of The Word, And Then Spell The Word Backwards, It Will Be The Same Word.

Guess I wasn't awake enough to think yet, 'cause I didn't get it!! Good one horseluver! Next time do more of 'em.

Smee.... that was a cool teaser (above in comments). Why didn't you submit it instead?

Congrats on getting teaser of the day! This one either comes to mind quickly or can be quite elusive if the brain doesn't take us in the right direction. We also saw some good alternative answers. Thanks for the tease!

(Side note: let's not use the comment area to chat amongst ourselves .. we have a great forum area and chat for that!)

Hope to see more of your teasers!

The hint "Read" actually confirmed my initial suspicion of the answer being "newspeak" - i.e. read 1984!
I did end concluding newspaper was probably the answer intended however.

very good it got me thinking!!

i did not get this but thought it was great...i think that people are way to petty in here though...it is a brain teaser it is supposed to be fun and alot of people only want to criticize...do you not have better things to worry about??
nightowl19*us*

Cool... Smee's was fun too. Keep it up, everyone!

Negativity can be creative and helpful, as long as it's not personal attacks.

'Newspeak' is almost 60 years old. 'Bowpsint' yields 34 hits on google. 'Bowsprint' a whopping 251. Get over yourselves, and nice tease!

I got 380,000 for "bowsprit" on Google. I liked this one a lot.

Mar 10, 2006

BTW... the reason I didn't submit my "teaser" above was because I haven't accumulated enough "points" to submit teasers yet. I'm not one of those "paying" customers, and I need at least 250 points to submit one. I'm glad y'all enjoyed it though, and I appreciate the nice comments!!

Enjoyed the heck out of this one. I did get it. And Smee, I really enjoyed your teaser. I've got some too, but am not a paying customer eaither. Have considered it, but will wait for a while.

It pays to read "THE NEWSPAPER",
I figured out the WSP>
Another good one, which will be added to my "FAVS"

I liked the puzzle a lot. But I would have liked to solve a few more at the same time! Thanks!

Cute but easy. I needed an easy one today. Thanks.

Mar 10, 2009

Oh my gosh I clicked on the hint and it said "read" but I thought that I clicked on the answer and I was like what the heck? Read does not have any of those letteres. I was so confused. But it's okay now. Phew. I'm not insane.
UptheHillA*

Right...
avonmaAus*

It wasn't that easy for me. I had to look at the hint and then I got it. Thanks!
precious1026Aus**
Mar 11, 2009

I looked at the Hint and still could not figure "Newspaper." I guess Newspaper is a common word, perhaps not a English Common Word. Something is amiss with this Teaser, even though I liked this teaser and it was Corrected on one or more points of accuracy.
perrygfAil*
Mar 17, 2009

Great puzzle! I got it after the hint. Do more!
wordmama*
Mar 10, 2012

Couldn't think of the common word until I read the hint. I thought of bowsprit first, and then newspeak, neither falling under the designation 'common', but the hint gave it to me, which doesn't bother me. Liked it.

I was lost until I saw the hint--was then able to rack that brain a bit & finally got it--thank you!! that was fun!! Btw, I'm thinking some of those comments would discourage entries--please don't let that happen!
tripleteam5*
Mar 10, 2012

nice. Had to use clue to get.. was workin' bowsprit til then
eamonca*
Mar 10, 2012

A sloppy old puzzler isn't it? I also thought of bowsprit first (we're not all reading at an elementary level) then newspeak which brought me to newspaper and so forth. It would be nice if the question was tweaked by giving "a 9-letter word" or whatever as part of the clue to rule out the other dozen and a half possible answers.

Aside from fun, the point of playing word puzzle games is to improve our minds surely, not to falsely praise ourselves over small mistakes.
