Sorry, just too simple. At least warn us that a teaser is aimed at 1st/2nd graders so I can save my time.

zaya, how about warning us that you're a douche bag in advance.

Easy after I figured out what the instructions meant.

Nice teaser... Got all of them right away... fun for a quick 30-second teaser when you have a pile of other stuff to do.

And for all those people who say it was too easy and a waste of time, you should HAVE KNOWN there are only nine (or 8, if made recently) options for this teaser. And since you're just trying to find the words in the sentences, you should HAVE KNOWN that this is an easy teaser for you. So, a warning is unecessary.

i actually enjoyed this
SydneyBlake008Aus*
May 01, 2008

Very good...but I was looking for the wrong thing. I thought the phrases were clues to what the planets were...for example, the "'...arsenic is poisonous...'" one, I thought it would be Venus, as it is filled with poisonous gases.

Anyway, good job!

I'm not a youngster, but it made me look a little while. Doehead, how come when you can get a teaser you complain about it being too easy or for youngsters, and when you don't get it you say it's way out there (or something like that) or the directions weren't clear? You seem very hard to please. I'd like to see you have more fun!

At first I was not going to even try as I thought it would take me too long, and then changed my mind and solve it in no time at all. Turned out easy, but I really liked it and it was fun. Thanks for posting.

Fun and easy. Perfect teaser for the 'while waiting for coffee ' time.

Yet another very old teaser being used as TOTD. The discussion as to how many possible answers there are was amusing to me, but speaks to how old this teaser is. Pluto was reclassified as a Dwarf Planet in 2006 (8 years ago). When this teaser was written, Pluto still had status as a major planet.

Well, I'm back. I found a way to get on.
First of all I want to say hello to my good friends from the past. I miss you guys.
Now for the reason I returned. I have been monitoring this site for awhile and notice something very disturbing.
CUTEBUG- you used to be a nice person, but lately you have become naughty( that was my role years ago),time for you to return to your nice person role and quit picking on BadBunnee.
And BadBunnee-time for you to quit making multiple comments-all you are doing in creating people to get sick of your dumb constant bickering of how many people comment. WHO CARES!!
With that said I will return to my hidden cave where only a few close friends know about.
Bye now.

Pretty easy and interesting teaser.
WOW that person Doehead just straighten me out. I will try to be a better person now. I apologize to the little rabbit, and won't pluck her tail anymore.

Hey, doehead ..... WOW !!!

Good to see you again. We've missed you ....

Well .... uhhh ... (at least) ...

I"VE missed you. (can't speak for anyone else, I guess) ..

I hope you can stay a while and "turn the corner" on your "karma" rating and get back into the "green".

I put "karma" in quotes because I believe TRUE Karma is a spiritual thing and can't be quantified and judged by a mere earthly entity such as Braingle.

Anyway ..... ( had planned to "stay away" from the intense silliness, here, for a bit but just HAD to say .....)

WELCOME BACK ... please stay a while !!!!!!!!
