The only ones out of order, my good sir, are the South African Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers, who no doubt could have solved this riddle with ease. Even though they don't speak English.

Hello:
I think some teasers get too much praise. U and R have changed places and out of it comes "you are out of order".
You know I think I should boast of myself. Sometime your teasers make me look like I am a genius.
Thank you for giving me this nice feeling. Though I am just a little brain. quack - quack

I thought it was "you are out of line" which is close enough that I feel like I got it clever rebus..thanks

Sep 25, 2005

I thought it was "switcheroo" (switch r-u) as in "the old switcheroo! Oh, well. I like your answer better. Good going

i thought it was like "you are switched" or something. but i still liked it good one!
iteachkidsAus*
Sep 25, 2005

This one does present several appropriate options. I jumped to "U R out of place." I REALLY like Arghonaut's (sp?) "switcheroo"!

Didn't know what a rebus was; still don't. Have to look that up.
mrguyguyAus*
Sep 25, 2005

I thought it was "rusty on the alphabet"(), because R, U, S, and T were mixed up.

Sep 25, 2005

It seems like this one could have been any number of things I was thinking how clever all the wrong answers were I especially liked switcheroo, though my answer was the slightly more ordinary you are mixed up.
foreverfree*us*
Sep 25, 2005

um kinda boring i like the riddle ones better
chinadoll_87*
Sep 25, 2005

I agree w/ "Ntaliesen" it cud hav been a # of thngs bt it ws funny 2 see all the possiblilities. I thght it ws a ? somthng like "R U bckwrd" or mybe "U R bckwrds". I ws close, bt not quite bt it ws still fun. luv'd the rubus keep up the gud wrk.

Sometimes you have to look closely at what's being shown, or said.
precious1026Aus*
Sep 26, 2005

I liked the teaser. Somethings that appear simple, really require you to apply a little brain action.
FulanitoGM*sv*
Sep 26, 2005

Okay, I get the feeling that Llama-lover makes those ridiculous comments just to rile people up. I don't think he really means half of what he says. If that's the case, I say "Well done!" I like people who rock the boat...

Hehe... I thought it was going to be Noel (No L) again, but this was a new version of an alphabet teaser that I hadn't seen before. Good job!

It was good, but a little too easy.
phyllisa*us*
Oct 12, 2006

Good but I didn't get it
scallioAus*
Oct 12, 2006

Great teaser! I got it quite easily, but I would argue that anyone who answered YOU ARE OUT OF LINE was also correct. I even liked SWITHEROO!

poisonivy9494*au*

peace out!
Jawn_Knee
Oct 12, 2006

At first I thought the answer was r u gone?
Then I thought it was r u missing? Fun.
bennalus*
Oct 12, 2006

The answer could also have been "You are in the wrong place," neh?

I thought it was, LETTERS ARE AFTER YOU (R after U), but I knew that didn't make much sense. I like yours better. Good teaser.

QrystalAca*
Oct 13, 2006

I'll count myself as being "close", as should most of the people who provided alternatives above.

I guessed: "U R screwed up!"
elu93Aus*
Oct 13, 2006

I loved that! It's actually one with the alphabet I've never heard before! Great Job!
RRAMMOHAN*in*
Oct 15, 2006

A good one! I first thought it was 'Are you mixed up?', and then felt this wasnt the right answer!
auntiesisAus*

i got the same thing as paul, but i liked it anyway! good thinking!
vlermaAus*
Oct 28, 2006

Maybe your answer was U R out of order. My answer was U R turned around. Same difference? Good one any howwhatever the answer is.

avonmaAus*
Oct 12, 2009

I thought it was hard, because I didn't get it.
But, it is still a good teaser!
Very clever.

Oct 12, 2009

What about "U R disorderly around the street [ST]?" I think the given solution is probably best, though it's always fun to try alternatives.
doeheadAus*
Oct 12, 2009

UR wrong was my answer.
auntiesisAus*
Oct 12, 2009

I thought U R mixed up. Cool!
patiencewithaP*us*
Oct 12, 2009

I came up with U R mixed up too...close! Clever teaser!
JimmymoAie*
Oct 12, 2009

Didn't even come close on this one!!!
katamaster*
Oct 13, 2009

I guess there were a lot of answers for this. I got "where r u?"
JayoAie*
Jan 26, 2011

Haha I came up with 'are you out of place?' Not a million miles away

I liked it!
Babe*
Oct 12, 2012

I was close also. I said,"u are out of line." I have heard the expression before so thought that was it. Good one and I feel good about my answer.
JQPublic**
Oct 12, 2012

Nice! It was impossible, though!
cutebugAus*
Oct 12, 2012

A lot of possible answers
Also: UR another old repeated teaser
dsjtus*
Oct 12, 2012

My first thought was the statement...

U R not where U R supposed to be.


Then as a question...

R U where U R supposed to be?
