You made several mistakes.
Laryingitis does not silence one, it merely makes them quiet.
"Let" is not the same as "commence". To commence is to begin. To let it snow is to make snowing able.
To envision is usually to not physically see something, instead, it means that they had a "vision".
A broadcast is not the same as telling something.

This one was great fun and not too tough.
I couldn't figure out "let it snow" or the bonus.
My son said he thought "let it snow" was "it's beginning to look a lot like christmas.

Jan 28, 2006

I, too, agree with randomroachie. I'd say that sure is a lot of mistakes for one teaser. Also did not realize "Go Tell it on the Mountain" is a Christmas song.

But what REALLY bothers me is your flippant use of the word "nut" to indicate someone who would go to a psychiatrist. Blatant bashing. You should be ashamed of yourself.

These are teasers, puzzles, not some profound source of wisdom. Lighten up. Enjoy.

I thought these were most enjoyable, made to make one think! (some of us have a harder time than others I think I need more coffee!)
And the bonus? Speaking personally as a 'cracked nut', I thought it was BRILLIANT, and certainly NOT anything to take offense at!!

But it isn't Christmas any more! We should have done this teaser a in December. It drives me nuts that Christmas has to last all year long... there are lots of OTHER holidays, ya know!

And "Go Tell It On the Mountain" *is* a Christmas song. "Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born." ;-)

LOL on the bonus. I had figured all the rest out but had to peek on the bonus. Sorry if anyone was offended, but I think it was a job well done!

H H H --- The bonus made me laugh!
I never noticed the dates of comments before ... but it made me curious. If this showed up in December, why did some of us not see it until today?

Check your word usage. I would'vve been smart and funny if you had used actual related synonyms instead of vaguely relating words

i thought it was very cute and funny i liked it a lot altough i didnt get a single one
shanniesue*
Jan 28, 2006

I didn't notice the dates... I only tend to do the daily teaser. And I also wonder why, if the teaser was posted in December, is it just now up for daily teaser?
shawneeo*us*
Jan 28, 2006

Very funny!

You poo-poo people above are unbelievable! The thing about traditional Christmas songs is that most people know them by heart, so the clues don't have to be scientifically exact! I got them all except the bonus. You poopooers probably didn't get any of them, did ya?

Very funny, Thanks a lot!
c_rae*us*
Jan 28, 2006

I thought it was very clever and funny (especially the nutcracker)! People need to lighten up and not take life so seriously. There is a lot of fun to be had out there if you're not so busy criticizing it!
kimberlykayAus*
Jan 28, 2006

Nice...I like this one!

You can go to each category of teasers and there are new ones posted there frequently. So, when and if it makes it to the "daily teaser", there may or may not already be comments. Look on the sidebar to the left when you are under the brain teasers tab and you will see a list of all the different categories. Click on a category and then you will see what I am talking about. You can rate these teasers and comment on them just like the daily ones.

Hope this helps!

I loved this teaser, got them all but the bonus, the teasers are light hearted fun and if they offend anyone they are welcome to not look or come back to the site........ lighten up people, life`s too short.

Greet teaser (Beethhovenswig?). I didn't get many but it was funny. Some people need to stop taking this so seriously.

IT'S JUST A" FESTIVAS" DAY FOR ALL TO READ. AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE TEASERS, THEN DON'T POST-(ABATE)! LOL LOL

This was really cute and, honestly, if you look at other similar teasers, the words don't have to be exact synonyms, it would be way too easy. It's just supposed to hint toward the answer. lighten up people.

Lots of fun, thank you!

Why do people feel the need to use so many emoticons, by the way? espec those who use them all so it ends up meaning nothing?

rubbish
shawneeo*us*
Jan 28, 2007

Amazing, I was all for not criticizing any of this teaser before. This time, while I still like it, I think: why is it that when there are definitely some corrections that could be made, are they never made once a teaser is accepted? It would only make it a better teaser to change a few of the words, like "commence" instead of "permit", "allow", etc.

I think the bonus is funny, but I'm not really sure why it's TWO psychiatrists? And "apartment" isn't the best hint for "suite", in my VERY HUMBLE opinion! That's all, sorry that I'm a poopoo person this time, but thanks for the fun teaser, its still overall great fun!
shawneeo*us*
Jan 28, 2007

Oh whoops! I meant to say: use "permit" etc., instead of "commence", and I really, REALLY think the song is "Do you SEE what I SEE?" The lyrics are, "Do you see what I see, A star, a star, shining in the night, with a tail as big as a kite, with a tail as big as a kite!" and then after that: "Do you know what I know" and so on, but the title is "Do you SEE...", I think...

Jan 28, 2007

Great fun!
But isn't the Nutcracker Suite a ballet and not a tune?
Pablo*
Jan 28, 2007

And also I agree with Shawneeo. Why does it have to be 2 and not one or ten?
Apologies for being pedantic. Great job!
Tracey2209Aca*
Jan 28, 2007

This teaser was fun, even if there were a couple of words that could have been changed. Great job!

Shawneeo, the song begins, "Said the night wind to the little lamb, do you hear what I hear?" The name of the song is correct.
coachpisco*

I found this teaser very boring and uninteresting. There were a few mistakes, and I felt like the clues were way too vague. Tjis is not one of my favorites.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Jan 28, 2007

A highly imaginative teaser! Not too tough but enjoyable enough to keep the mind going! Keep up the terrific work! I can enjoy these anytime of the week.
bradon182001*us*
Jan 28, 2007

Without going over each little part of this teaser, I'll just say I LOVED IT.
shawneeo*us*
Jan 28, 2007

OK, tracysmartypants, LOL just kidding, the title IS correct, BUT, the lyrics are: Said the night wind... Do you see what I see?" and THEN, the lamb says to the shepherd boy "Do you hear what I hear?".

so THERE

wordmama*
Jan 28, 2007

Personally, I didn't appreciate the bonus one, but I got all the others correct, even though I did not know the 'ships' song--I just 'translated'.

I agree with those who encourage 'lightening up'. No one is perfect, and it's not the end of the world if wording isn't perfect; let's just try to go with the flow and move on.
saradoveus*
Jan 28, 2007

Very interesting. It took me a while to get them but I liked it a lot.

I don't see how the title fits the teaser but o well.
breathesunshineAus*
Jan 28, 2007

This was awesome! I loved the way the clues made you pause and think a minute instead of getting the answers instantly. That's what this site is all about, stretching your brain!
Musikman212*ca*
Jan 28, 2007

It's easy to tell the folks who couldn't get the answers. They're probably the ones who are finding fault. They all need to lighten up. Great teaser. I loved it!

How the heck do you put it in December? Oh, you mean, hide all Christmas-related teasers and only display them in December? Well, I HATE people like you who think that all Christmas-related stuff sucks. WHAT'S WRONG WITH CHRISTMAS?! Know that some people get easily offended by comments like that! Know what I think of people like you? This!

This was a wonderful teaser. The vague synonyms made the teaser challenging and fun. Good job!

Jan 28, 2010

One more complaint about #2: "commences" =/= "is allowed". Loved the bonus. (And, contrary to prior suggestions, this "poo-poo"er did in fact get all of the answers.)

Fairly easy, but not my favorite. I have to agree with the remarks about misuse of words! Could have used better ones. Otherwise an Okay teaser

Sorry but the bonus was especially badly written. With the rest you could muddle through the mistakes but the bonus was more than a reach of wordplay.
