No fun, and WAY too easy. It's not even comparable with your other teasers in this category. Took me a nano second to get it. Instead of the customary 3 nano seconds. Lolololol! Good try tho.

KNITCH IS RIGHT. THIS WAS WAY TOO EASY!! THE QUALITY OF YOUR RECENT TEASERS IS IS OFF SIGNIFICANTLY.

I HOPE YOU ARE NOT SUBSCRIBING TO THE THEORY KEEP TALKING (SUBMITTING TEASERS) YOU MIGHT SAY SOMETHING IMPORTANT (MAKE A GOOD ONE.)

KICK IT UP A NOTCH, OR BACK UP A FEW TEASERS AGO.

QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY PLEASE.

I agree that it was easy, but it took just a few seconds, so it was still fun. I like teasers that are simple in nature, have simple answers, but take a bit of thinking.

i thought it was way to easy, but all these people that are so negative....let them try and do better...i don't see them even attempting to do it....so unless u have the "guts" to do it, don't knock the ones that actually give it a try......be mature about it...would u like someone downing u all the time? get a life u negative people

Hey I got all of them. Well, I thought of wash for the first one but I had never heard of hogwash. The other two were a breeze! Good one!

I can't imagine which one of the three a lot of the people missed.

A bit too easy.

For those that liked it, I am glad you did, and thank you. For those that think it's too easy, I am sorry if this wasted your time. On occasion, I like to put in some easier ones as not all are of the caliber of people that only like the extremely hard ones. So, sorry if you did not like it, but keep looking as you may find one you do like. If not, submit some of your own so you are sure to have some on the site you like.

I thought it was a good quiz! Not everyone is adept at this type of quiz, so it's challenging for us who need to think a bit about the words.

I was brilliant Hitting on all cylenders (sp?) Until I see others claim it was too easy I choose to believe I am brilliant - as are you

Fish is right. There need to be teasers for brains of ALL levels on Braingle. Those of you who expect challenging ones every single day need to submit some!
In the meantime, thanks for a fun one, Fish!

Great teaser Fish!

Poor old doehead. What a sad life she must have. It must torment her so to be such a negative person.
