This is a great first teaser.

I always think that mine are too easy, but then I have gotten at least a question mark full, and most of the time more. (I have only gotten three approved, so its still too soon to tell for sure) But my point is that you think its easy because you thought of it.

Besides, even if it is easy, I like those too.....if they all were hard it would get boring for me, because I don't get many hard ones!

Sorry for the long comment, and GREAT JOB!! Keep it up!

i know what you're talking about, calmsavior - same answer, different rebus - but that's bound to happen sooner or later. Just enjoy the creativity of the different brainglers!

Saw the PALS...Just couldn't piece it together....Good One!

I was thinking "big slap on the back" -- since the big letters spelled slap backwards... admittedly, it was a stretch

I didn't know pinnacle meant high places but I did get the pals. Pretty good teaser.

Never would have gotten this in a million years. I didn't even see Pals. Guess I should have "taken a closer look." Great rebus. Very clever.
cassiemarkAus*

That was good - you got me!
starrychelxAus*
Mar 23, 2007

I normally don't get rhebuses... and I didn't get this one until I clicked to see the answer, and it clicked in my head (before the answer loaded)! Very good one indeed!
FatHeadAus*
Mar 23, 2007

That was easy! PALS was found in pinnacles, so that could only mean one thing....
zips5000Aus*
Mar 23, 2007

gots the pals .. wasnt thinkin high places. good one.
craniacAus*
Mar 23, 2007

I got as far as pals on a mountain, but the stretch from there to the answer was just too abstruse for me.
shawneeo*us*
Mar 23, 2007

Very great, bhs!!! I was thinking all around the answer, and also I got the "back slap" idea too, "slap on the back", "pals on the way up, slap on the way back" LOL, but for some reason, the popular phrase "friends in high places" NEVER occurred, at least not in the time I allotted, which was admittedly, not much.

btw, bhs, you WILL get negative comments at some point because some people ALWAYS make negative comments. DONT let it bother you one little bit! It was a great teaser, and I'm gonna send it to grandma, who I think will probably get it. But she gets them all!
auntiesisAus*
Mar 23, 2007

Got the pinnacle, even got the pals, but that was it... Just couldn't put them together. Great rebus, made me think more than I wanted to. Love these teasers, but I don't always get them.
speedqueenkmwAus*
Mar 23, 2007

ditto, auntiesis. At first I was reading pals backward as slap

By far, this is one of the best teasers. Now the question again has to surface...why are we duplicating teaser submissions. This was submitted way back in 2005
breathesunshineAus*
Mar 23, 2007

Fun one. Got it right away. And just a reminder, some of us are fairly new to the site so this is new to us!

Mar 23, 2007

Easy, but fun! Thanks for submitting. Like I've said in the past, the rebus category is definitely one that you can get better at with practice (at least for me). Didn't like them at first, now some of my faves!
Swordoffury1392*us*

Smart teaser!
bhssoccer23Aus*
Mar 23, 2007

Thank you everybody!! I'm glad I checked my email today, as I haven't checked it in a while (128 unread messages ), and saw that I had tons of comments, and that my teaser was teaser of the day!!! Yay! I can't believe it! Thanks for the comments guys!
MadelulabelleAus*
Mar 24, 2007

Good teaser, I got the words, although i hadn't quite pieced the phrase together when saw the first part of the answer.

And all you commenters; who doesn't know the meaning of 'pinnacle'??? I'm 12, and the fact that adults who have supposedly had a ful education would have such a pitiful vocabulary.
MadelulabelleAus*
Mar 24, 2007

*Sorry, I meant "full", I some how dropped my second "L".
bhssoccer23Aus*
Mar 24, 2007

Well, I for one am glad that some people don't know the meaning, because then more people would be getting the answer! I don't think it's that bad that some people don't know the meaning; it's not really something you say everyday. Oh well, thanks for the comment.

Great rebus. Keep up the great work. More please.
jamy400Aus*
Mar 25, 2007

I loved it!!! Once I saw the answer I laughed!!
QrystalAca*
Mar 26, 2007

Huh. I saw the pinnacles, and then the next thing I saw were ALPS, all mixed up ... and I couldn't do much else with that. I'm no good at rebus teasers, so I figured I'd consider myself "close" if it had anything to do with mountains.

And it wasn't. Phooey. oH Well. Neat teaser, just the same.
bhssoccer23Aus*
Mar 26, 2007

Qrystal, that's a good way of thinking about it. I probably would have said something close to that if I were solving it, because the first thing I think of when I see the word 'pinnacle' is Pinnacle 1 insurance, and its logo is a mountain, so I always think of a mountain.

Anyway, thanks for the comment everyone!Vlerma, I'll try to think up some more for you!

Wow! this is a really really really good one!
VERY nice. gonna have to check out more of yours.

Mar 23, 2010

I like this teaser. It makes you think. And, yes, I got the correct answer.

I am so amazed that such a common word as pinnacle flummoxed so many folks. I guess its not such a common word after all.
doeheadAus*
Mar 23, 2010

As we turn the corner; what do we see, another worn and old teaser. But I guess thats par for the course. Wake up editors and give us some new material!!!
TallTimberAus*
Mar 23, 2010

Not a bad rebus. Took me a bit, but I figured it out.
patiencewithaP*us*
Mar 23, 2010

Got it right away! Good one!
avonmaAus*
Mar 23, 2010

I saw "pinacles" and knew that word. Then I saw "PALS." But somehow my brain hiccupped and I started thinking "predicament" and came up with "A friend need is a friend indeed," and went with that without thinking it through. In too big a hurry.
Bummer. Good one, though.

I liked this one and got it rather quickly!
