I got them all, though I didn't think the first would be right, because it's a little odd. Good teaser!

Good Teaser. I failed at choosing the correct answer. I related all to people, and hunger. Good idea

Dec 13, 2005

YEAH!!! I finally got one. This was so much fun, thank you. Many of these daily teasers leave me sitting here scratching my head.

Dec 13, 2005

Ditto, Bootscooter58! My thoughts exactly! I got them after a couple minutes thought... at first I thought there was only supposed to be ONE word that described all three groups, but then I wised up! Great teaser!!

Dec 13, 2005

I only got the first one right. But other than that, I was stumped! They were awesome! I wish that you could do more of these.

I totally washed out on this one. Duh! I should have had more coffee first. Good one!!

I thought the answer for Group A was pretty clever. It was the only one I got right, but it was my favorite. Mainly because you wouldn't see those 3 normally grouped together, but "shoe" made it much easier. Great teaser!

WOW, GREAT, HOORAY, FANTASTIC, AM I LUCK OR WHAT, THE FIRST REPLY. THIS MUST BE MY LUCKY DAY.

THIS WAS DEFINITELY A WEAK ENTRY, THE CATEGORY IS FINE, BUT THIS DOESN'T DO IT JUSTICE.

Dec 16, 2006

The tongue one was ambiguous, but the other two were pretty obvious.
puttumupus*
Dec 16, 2006

way to easy had the answers in less then five minuttes.yawn....

Dec 16, 2006

PUTUMUP, now Imurrary is excited and you poo poo this teaser. I think you're Ebenezer Scrooge in disguise. Bah humbug to you. I thought the teaser was a good one.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Dec 16, 2006

Just shaking my head w/ LM Laugh them up, a little bit, and make others believe it really is something...because the teaser is only as good or as tough as you make it to be on you. Even the tough ones come easy, after a time, but they are still fun! This is an excellant teaser! BTW! Keep them coming!

Dec 16, 2006

This was great.I only got group C. but it was still fun.

Dec 16, 2006

My tongue-less loafer caused me to miss #1, #2 was pretty easy and I thought of "mouth for #3 then dismissed it. Oh well, I must need more coffee.

This was fun, easy, burt fun. More please?

Nice job. Very creative!!!

Dec 16, 2006

I'm confused. A baby tongue? A restaurant goer -"A bill"? Guess I was trying to be too literal. Sorry but doesn't make sense to me.

Dec 16, 2006

I thought the 2nd one was 'a soul/sole' not a tongue. that is just dumb
Amber08071*ca*

I thought this teaser was excellent. Good job and keep em coming

I liked this one...the first one, I was going for something more difficult than tongue, though...Anyway...Thanks

Good Job!

it was okay. not that good, but i liked it a little bit.

Made me think of the game TriBond, which I am always winning haha.
wordmama*
Dec 16, 2006

Bradon: A baby has a tongue, yes? And unless you're 12, don't you ever pay the bill at a restaurant? Unfreeze your brain!

BTW: I enjoyed this teaser immensely, right up my alley. Solved it in about 90 seconds--it doesn't have to take long to solve for it to be a worthwhile teaser!

Wow that was a good teaser. it sure fooled me keep em' coming!

Dec 16, 2006

Anyone else notice that a tongue,
a bill, and a mouth are all related as well (if the bill is a duck's mouth, that is)?

Dec 16, 2006

i got it yay
breathesunshineAus*
Dec 17, 2006

Lots of fun but did it at bedtime and my brain was fuzzy! Didn't get the first at all, second I got "sitting", and finally woke up a little for the third and got it right!
phyllisa*us*
Dec 17, 2006

This was a good one, but I didn't get any
scallioAus*
Dec 17, 2006

I got 'em all! No problem!

Loved this teaser! Thanks a bunch!

Ouch, some teasers just have a way of making a person feel really dumb. This teaser did this to me.

The answers make sense just fine, but for whatever reason (lack of experience in this category maybe?) I just had no idea what sort of commonality I was looking for... until I saw the answers, and then the dumb-feeling started to sink in. I think I'm gonna quit braingling for today, and come back tomorrow, when perhaps my brain batteries are recharged.

One out of three...is that bad??

3 yrs later and still fun!

missed the second one Bill

Dec 16, 2009

I must have seen to many of these, because this one was extremely easy.
pengzoidAus*
Dec 16, 2009

I figured they were each part of their respective group, but that would be a trick question.
blubberboy
Dec 16, 2009

that is great! I love that! nice job!

WELL I ONLY GOT THE LAST ONE
jaycr*us*
Dec 16, 2012

Yesterday's comments cracked me up . . .
This one was OK. More then one answer for the groups. But it was fun.
Babe*
Dec 16, 2012

I got B & C, but not the first one. I think it should have said a human or person instead of baby. Baby limited it. When you go over everything a baby has you just do not think of tongue, but you might have with a person. Just my opinion!
cutebugAus*
Dec 16, 2012

Interesting and pretty easy.
HABS2933Aca*

This teaser is based on one on my favorite board games TRIBOND, but with the game, each grouping has only ONE possible answer unless you are coming up with ridiculous connections.There were several answers that would have worked on this.
iggy39Aus*
Dec 16, 2012

I guess the politics are getting to me.
All I could come up with duck was lame.
I did get the other two.
Thx for posting I liked it.
