See what happens when you hang around these type of people?!? you become a nut expert!!! The only one I didn't get was #4, which is not really a nut anyway (is it??)

Aw, NUTS!!! I missed "pecan"!!!
OldChinaHand**
Aug 10, 2006

Well, I hope we can get group rate, I see I not the only certifiable one. And looking at the calendar shows that basic long, long shelved white is still in season, so we'll be in fashion. Good One and Fun 2.

4/7 not a total nutcase, hurray!
Good teaser thx
bradon182001*us*

This was fun. I got 5 so here's another one for the certifiable group.
Badger*us*

Very fun and clever! 7/7... Helped my ego this morning, and extended my daily teaser winning streak, ever since the dreaded Chimera beast stomped me a few days ago! Thanks for submitting!

I disagree with Shanniesue....I am definately a nut!!!
QrystalAca*
Aug 10, 2006

niiiiice! always great to wake up and get told I'm nutty. 5/7. Missed pecan (groaner on that one!) and coconut, but I really must say I like the answer given by Dezarae better: butternut, since butter is probably in a lot more confections than cocoa.
IMCUL4E*us*
Aug 10, 2006

Brilliant!
IMCUL4E*us*
Aug 10, 2006

i loved the witch hazel one. (seeing as i'm a wiccan...)
zaya*
Aug 10, 2006

I got 6 of 7, and protest the one I missed, Coconut. Its a fruit, not a nut.

Aug 10, 2006

OMG! This teaser just proves I am a certified *Nut case* A very imaginative, yet brilliantly worded teaser to locate ALL of the nut lovers, coming in here. Keep that imagination in gear, and you will find other interests, we love to go nuts over.
kman613**

I'm beginning to worry about myself! Great one!
bhssoccer23Aus*
Aug 10, 2006

Great one! I only got 4 right. I kind of got pecan, but not really.
tonjawithaj*us*
Aug 10, 2006

Good one Zona!
poffles
Aug 10, 2006

I thought I had done fairly well. I thought I had 5 out of 7 until I realized that I had missed #4. I wrote almond, the ingredient of Marzipan, a MAJOR confectioners delight. Not mine personally though. I shouldn't have second guessed #2 peanut which was my first answer. But I started thinking Cocoa "pod" and put that instead. Good one with "wall"-nut.
extra3641
Aug 10, 2006

i got 5! i didnt get #5 or #7. now that i saw the answer it was obvious. oh well... still GOOD JOB! that was really fun.
googoogjoob
Aug 10, 2006

Like many of you, I got all but coconut -- I had gessed doughnut!

How about one more?
-- explosion of a tickled nose = cashew
Sarah5225766
Aug 10, 2006

YES 3!
i just barely made that normal line.
nice teaser
Wingsfan**
Aug 10, 2006

I go 6/7 right. I missed pecan. I was thinking "cashew" like catch-you (peeking)...you know...well, nevermind! I agree though, "wall" nut clue was great!!
jaydecoAus*
Aug 10, 2006

Loved it! Great teaser!
phazt*us*
Aug 10, 2006

very good.. made me think!
RRAMMOHAN*in*
Aug 10, 2006

Got 5 easily except # 5 and 7. For # 5, though I could get 'peek on' couldnt link it with pecan! That's stupid of me. # 7 , I was stumped!..A nice teaser, though. Thanks for making us think.
jabdrAus*
Aug 10, 2006

Like many, I missed 5 & 7 but loved this one. Great Job!
thimblenogginus*
Aug 10, 2006


Yeah! I got 11 answers right!!
freedomgirl*us
Aug 10, 2006

This was great! I got 5 ! Didnt get the cocnut one -- felt dumb when I saw the answer. Good job Zona!! I love all the brain teasers!
zonahoboAus*
Aug 11, 2006

Looks like another round of teaser of the day turned up a whole new crop of nuts. Thanks all who enjoyed. I can see I am in fine company here!

Can't believe I got #7 right. It was a guess, but I got lucky and figured out where it was going. Missed # 5 though. Thanks for the fun!
4demo*
Sep 15, 2007

Four right! I guess I'm still borderline normal. Strangely, though, I don't even like nuts (in "normal" state, that is - I do like peanut butter). Well, fun teaser and interesting psychological element!
doeheadAus*
Aug 10, 2009

Very nutty.
emu77alu02us*
Aug 10, 2009

Very cute and funny. I always knew I was nuts!
auntiesisAus*
Aug 10, 2009

I didn't get #7, but the rest were easy. I guess that makes me a nut. I was called a nut last night, so I guess it fits.

Great teaser!
nikitafullmoonAca*
Aug 10, 2009

W00T! I am an expert nut!

... oh, hang on; that's not quite right.
KarateGirl098tus*
Aug 10, 2009

Great teaser! Only problem I could find in it is that peanuts aren't actually nuts.
avonmaAus*
Aug 10, 2009

Great quiz! Lotsa fun!
I did miss 2, however
UptheHillA*
Aug 10, 2009

That made me hungry...
hubbamutt777tus*
Aug 10, 2009

i dont get that one. no offense, but i didnt like it. not just because it wuz hard. im just not into nuts.
grayelf812us
Aug 10, 2009

Great teaser. I missed coconut. How about; hiding money in your footwear.... " cash shoe " ha ha ha
dalfamnestAnz*
Aug 10, 2009

Got them all eventually. Was just about to give up on three when another ... then another came to mind ... and finally pecan. Satisfying Tnx

Brazil is a nut?

Aug 10, 2012

I got 6 and a male friend of mine said he got 2.
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 10, 2012

Hi everyone! I got 5 - should have gotten hazel nut. NEVER would have gotten coconut by thinking cocoa is a confection ingredient. A "hula" clue would have helped me! Have a wonderful day!
ffffgal*
Aug 10, 2012

I loved this teaser! Very clever and not too easy! I only got one right, but once I looked at the answers I was like "duh, why didn't I get that one?"
kittygirl19cus*
Aug 10, 2012

100TH!!!!

Aug 10, 2012

I came up with Butternut instead of Coconut. Enjoyed the teaser. Thank you.
iggy39Aus*
Aug 10, 2012

Well that makes me certifiable and it was a fun and easy one for me.

Aug 10, 2012

I only got 2 wrong and they were the last two lol, i dont know my nuts but i am good at brain teasers
Babe*

I am proud to say I am a certifiable NUT!
giuseppemccarthtus*
Aug 11, 2012

Haha, good teaser. I got 6 of them. Coconut stumped me because I wasn't really thinking of something so big. You know: Walnut, Hazelnut, Brazil nut etc. are all small, normal nuts. oh well
Candi7tus*
Aug 14, 2012

2/6. I may not be a nut expert, but I still like them.
