Yeah, I only got 3 of them also. Numbers 1, 3, and 5. The other two, I had no clue!

Got 'em all, got em alllll !!!yeeeeaaaaayyyyy!

I had to go a la thesaurus for no. 2, the rest I got fairly fast, the PERFECT level of difficulty!!!

I think that brook crook would also work for no.2, like the crook of your arm, the crook of your neck, I suppose its not used much but it means an indentation, curve, that kind of thing (but I didn't look it up, I've just heard it used, more when I was a child in the country).

Thanks muchly, that was great, could have been much longer in my opin, Thanks!

Great teaser peppamntp!!! Not too easy, not too hard.
I got 'em all except #5.... but I think I came up with a valid alternative.... How about "steel seal" for metal drain plug?

Jan 21, 2006

I couldn't rhyme or reason out 2, but the rest rolled off the tongue nicely. Well done.

Good one, PP. Shawneo, you're absolutely right, there are crooks in brooks. I saw several of them in Deliverance. J/k, it is in the dictionary, though, so it has to count.

Great as usual peppamintp. Enjoyed it immensely. Had trouble with #2 but otherwise it just brought out the poet in me. Ha Ha! KEEP 'EM COMING!

That was fun. I like this kind. I got them all, but had to think .I'd like more of these.
iteachkidsAus*
Jan 21, 2006

Good thinking, choptliva. I think "steel seal" works, too.
Fun teaser!

Jan 21, 2006

I didn't get them all. It was fun to try though--thanks
wizofaus*au*
Jan 21, 2006

I had "steel seal" for the last one. I also thought of "waterway bay" for #2, but guessed that brook nook was more likely.
highlama
Jan 21, 2006

That was good; for #4 though I got "too two" ... maybe a stretch

I see we're using 5th grade rythmes.

Feb 16, 2007

i see doehead is using 1st grade spelling.
wordmama*
Feb 16, 2007

good 1 shann!

Submitter, enjoyed this immensely. I don't care if it's easy; it was great fun! Had to take an extra beat for brook nook and copper stopper, but otherwise immediate answers--good wake-up!!

Thanks a bunch!

How about river quiver for number #2?
craniacAus*
Feb 16, 2007

Does it bother anyone besides me that the intro to these teasers always says "Language brain teaser are" when it should be "teasers are"? I just think that a web site about careful thought and use of language ought to match plural subjects with plural verbs in its instructions. But I haven't had my coffee yet this a.m., so maybe I'm just grumpy.

Great one! Got all but #5, but I lobby for "steel seal" which I put too
heyman*
Feb 16, 2007

#1 For Moby Dick fan letter I also came up with "whaler haler"

And for #4 Extra couple I propose "Two Too"

Cute - that was fun

Didn't care for this one at all. Too obscure.

ANOTHER RERUN!

SINCE IT SAYS I ALREADY RATED THIS TEASER AND I DON'T SEE ANY OF MY COMMENTS, I ASSUME MY COMMENTS WERE CONSIDERED OFFENSIVE OR I DIDN'T THINK THE TEASER DESERVED A COMMENT.

I DID HOWEVER ENJOY THE COMMENT ABOUT 5th GRADE RHYMES.

Fun fun fun!!! And not a rerun for me by the way. Since we all have our strengths and weaknesses, I enjoy seeing a variety of ability levels presented. Keep up the good work!
QrystalAca*

I liked it!!

And I got 'em all except #2, but I'm glad I'm not alone! Good alternative answer, those of you who got "steel seal", but I really liked "copper stopper" too (because that's the one I got! Heehee!)

@Doehead and Lmurray

Don't put yourself up as too intelligent for these teasers. All you are showing is your arrogance. No one likes a Smart Alec.

No funny monkey face, you are the smart alec.

What can I say? Wornout and overused!!!

I enjoyed it-took a minute for deductive reasoning to wake up enough for stream cove, but tickled when I got it!
jandjfrench
Feb 17, 2013

And I thought "rivlet inlet" was rather obvious for number 2.

Enjoyed it enough but was for some reason unable to come up with BrookNook
