Great teaser! Me likey...

How's about we include "slick flick" as an alternate answer to #3, seeing as how a lot of people (including me) guessed that, and it IS a valid answer? Yes? Anyone else with me?
Vercetti*
Sep 13, 2005

Not too shabby. Um, here's another solution to the movie one:

chic flick
Haylie1506*

OK, for the pencil"lead" one, you could clue: Not half wrong & center of pencil. Half-rirht graphite.
bradon182001*us*

Great one!!! I feel so very silly b/c I miss...Down Clown. Can you believe that? When I saw the answer, I couldn't believe I didn't think of that. I guess we all have our slow days.

Sep 10, 2006

Good teaser! I had trouble getting "groovy" but I got it eventually. I really enjoyed this one!

That was Great !
Next time make it a bit harder .
chocolatechippy*
Sep 10, 2006

i loved it!!! and don't make slick flick or chic flick or keen sheen one of the answers because that would make it way to easy and all of the people that r mad that those don't count are sore losers, but great job
buenos*us*
Sep 10, 2006

for "cool film" I got "sick flick"...
MurfQ*ca*
Sep 11, 2006

Good one. I always enjoy this type.

Oddly enough though, I didn't get the cool film one. My brain was stuck thinking of cool in terms of temperature so even though groovy movie did pop into my head, I didn't make the connection. Pretty sad really, I must be getting old...
lmurray*cn*
Sep 11, 2006

BECAUSE OF THE RHYMING, THE DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY IS MINIMALIZED.

CAN YOU OFFER ONE UISNG ANTONYMS OR .....?
cassiemarkAus*
Sep 11, 2006

I really liked that - got them all

Yay!
utnative*
Sep 11, 2006

that was fun even if i didn;t get all of them great teaser
tdbrsun*
Sep 11, 2006

I liked this one.
QrystalAca*
Sep 12, 2006

I liked this, and had fun, though it was partly because I found it easy. Some easy ones aren't fun though, so this one is still special. Way to go!

I also vote for having "slick flick" as an alternate answer for "groovy movie" .. though not "chic flick", because chic is pronounced "sheek" and doesn't rhyme, and not "sick flick" because "sick" is slang (and thus not officially recognized as a synonym for "cool"). (For the record, I did get "groovy movie" rather quickly.)

And iteachkids - I forgot about the term "hinky pinky"!! Suddenly, I'm whisked away to my elementary school days... tee hee.

Anyways, um, can someone explain what's going on with the cold soapy water and the ducky?
QrystalAca*
Sep 12, 2006

oh yeah, and the center of a pencil is still called a lead, despite it not being made of lead.
phyllisa*us*
Sep 16, 2006

My husband said "slick flick" instead of groovy movie

I do enjoy these kinds of teasers and have fun with them, usually don't get them all but not too much of a problem with this one.
