Good teaser! I thought it was a library. Postage stamp fits better, IMO.

Cool! I'm the first comment!

I thought of letter first, then with all the good clues figured it had to be stamp. I had lots of fun with this one. Very good job with good clues.

I got this one right away. But then I am a stamp collector. When I saw pony express I immediately thought of the mail and with all the other clues it could only be a stamp. Good one. I enjoyed it.

Aug 29, 2005

Come on, people! That was WAY too easy... Cougarose and jabdr hit it right on the nail! The "pony express" reference is a DEAD GIVEAWAY that the answer has something to do with mail! Then the rest of the riddle only leaves you with one possibility! And Lisha KC: yeah, we're being cocky. So what? We can back it up with our enormous intellects! J/K...

Gee, I thought I had come up with a bunch of new teasers in our church bulletin, only to find they were all from Braingle. But isn't it nice that our site is so family friendly that they aren't afraid to post our threads in a church bulletin? Here Here for Braingle!!

This teaser and most of the comments just prove what I have suspected for some time now. Most of the really intelligent minds have deserted Braingle.
The name should be changed to Braindead!

Like a lot of others before me, I thought the answer was currency. I guess I didn't really read it just skimmed it, so maybe I missed something. Nice teaser anyways. Thanks for posting.
breathesunshineAus*
Jul 27, 2008

I think there's plenty of brains around this site, and a few trolls, too!!!
I thought of camera for the answer and didn't bother to think any harder. Some days are like that!
emu77alu02us*

"pony express" gave it away for me good one!

avonmaAus*
Jul 27, 2008

I had to think for a little bit - came up with all sorts of answers - and then I guessed it! It had to be a stamp! Fun! Thanks!

Being a stamp collector for 50 years made this one simple. I loved it. Thanks.

Jul 28, 2008

Thought for sure it was MAIL.
The pictures are on post cards.

Fun teaser!

KronosAus*
Jul 27, 2011

Reading through everything it was either a stamp or a postcard. I went with stamp because it fit better. Good teaser. Easy though.

AROB? Sorry to steal your line Have a wonderful day KiPA!
PixitAse

A stamp can only have one picture. Maybe a stamp has been transported by a rocket, would be interesting to know when.

It took me a couple of seconds... but I got it!! fun. XD

Jul 27, 2011

AROB. I think it's time to put a FINAL STAMP on this one.
Hi GnMi

I instantly thought coin, as two or three weeks back the teaser-du-jour's riddle involved a coin, which claimed to be the greatest traveller, but reading beyond the title made it clear - Pony Express killed this one for me.

Currency could certainly work, however - especially US currency, since the state quarter rollout - beaches, mountains, lakes, geysers etc. have appeared on all our coins, and I've known plenty of people who send currency through mail rather than being wise and sending a cheque or money order.

However, most currency doesn't leave its native country (or continent, in the case of the Euro), so stamp is certainly a better fit. Great teaser!

Yesterday's teaser stumped me good, but this one I got immediately. Go figure. At first I thought picture post card and then changed my mind before finishing reading it. Thank you GAYLEWOLF, HABBS, and DOODLES for giving me support on yesterdays teaser. So good to have friends like you three.
