I think this was a lot easier to solve than for you to put it together. You don't have to try so hard.

If you took out the caps it would a good challenge, but I guess we need the occasional "gimme".

vigo,vigo,vigo....you cannot be serious.....

That was not great, it was weak, lame, boring

Bigswaff, not your best work...but oh well.....
kashbyAus*
Feb 17, 2006

lame, stupid, hard, and dumb. Srry.
Vigo95Aus*
Feb 17, 2006

BESA i do these earlier than you do . first thing after i get up i'm easier to please . also easier to confuse . you my friend need to stay more on top of things . thinking yourself clever does not clever make !
watch yourself ! for i am VIGO

besamishuevos*np*
Feb 17, 2006

thinking of myself as clever is not the case....this was too easy a teaser.....

also, when one lives on the east coast, one is most likely up earlier than those that live to the left of the eastern time zone.....

the huevos have spoken.....

iteachkidsAus*
Feb 17, 2006

Besa - "to the WEST" of the Eastern Time Zone would be better than "left."
I think shrina77 and some of the others who didn't get it are probably just too young. It definitely was a gimme for those of us at more advanced ages ... or who watched our share of Westerns. But it was FUN, and that's part of what we're here for, so thanx, SWAFF!
Vigo95Aus*
Feb 17, 2006

you are rude ! i wasn't trying to say you were lazy or anything . i mean, what you're a couple of hours behind me ?
oooooooooh , you tease me so .
name the time and place . i'll be ready for any verbal jab .
english or spanish
vlermaAus*
Feb 17, 2006

I got it. I got it I got it. Yes we older western lovers probably did get it a lot easier than the youngsters, but still a good teaser. And Vigo and Besa. just because the teaser was named "Rivalry" doesn't mean you two had to go at it. But Vigo I agree someone needs to take Besa out and teach him some Highplains Diplomacy. Go for it in Spanish or English. I'll sell tickets. Back to the teaaser I thought it was great. I may be getting better at this kind. Thanks.

That was a really cool teaser. I took me a while but I got it

I cut my teeth on dime westerns so I spotted that one even before I read it.
smee*
Feb 17, 2006

Oh, this one was WAY COOL!!!! Ya know, at first I thought, "There was a mistake... they left out the 'aint big enough for' in the teaser." However, when I saw the answer, I just had to laugh at myself for not getting it ... (you know, with the letters being smaller than the others...)

EXCELLENT TEASER.... BRAVO!!!!
swimmergirl_mrh*us*
Feb 17, 2006

Cool i didn't get it but it was fun!!!
bigSWAFF_69_Aus*
Feb 17, 2006

Thanks for the comments

As for kashby and besamishuevos, I'm sure that your teasers will be much better when you get around to submitting them. .

I would appreciate it if you could keep your conversations in either PM, or in the Message Boards, I don't much like to weed threw complete junk when reading the comments.



Also, for those who said age may be a factor in ability to solve, that may not be the case. I am only 13, but have seen my fair share of Westerns

well then, it seems we have some trouble taking criticism eh swaff?

p.s.

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

crap crap crap crap crap crap crap

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
shawneeo*us*
Feb 17, 2006

smee, the "not big enough" was shown by "the both of us" not fitting completely within the phrase "THIS TOWN" and ending outside of this town, because "this town" was not big enough (long enough) for "the both of us", so "of us" had to be outside of THIS TOWN, not the size of the letters.

That was a good one, had two tricks. I wonder if you could have done it with two "of us"'s, one sticking out, so as not to give away the whole phrase as quickly. Anyway, thanks!

Good teaser...I confess that I was making it much more difficult on myself that it really was

it's good i ALMOST got it

if thats even possible?!?!?


lindquist_25Aus*
Feb 19, 2006

I got it!! I just guessed the phrase, because that's a very well-known western phrase. I didn't actually know it because of the clue but whatever. Good job.

Second time around I got it right. I didn't remember it from before when I first started on Braingle, back in 2006. I'm amazed at all the comments made after I posted back then. What a shame.Remember, this is a fun thing we are doing here, so enjoy. I was always taught if you don't have something good to say, don't say anything. So, remember there is always that option. Personally, I thought this teaser was good. Enjoyed it, Thanks again for posting.

Nice SWAFF! easy but nice! I made a similar Rebus but I like yours better!
I cant beleive I missed it when it first came out!!

Feb 17, 2009

Loved this one. Easy, but fun. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks Bigswaff.
gaylewolfAus*
Feb 17, 2009

I thought it was a good one!

I never did get the phrase "the both of us" wouldn't just "both of us" do?

I'm being picky and I did love it - thanks
and hi, Auntie Sis!!
FatHeadAus*
Feb 17, 2009

WAY too easy. I couldn't make sense out of how you were trying to say it, but I knew what you were trying to say.
bigSWAFF_69_Aus*
Feb 17, 2009

1) I find it funny this was TOTD on this exact day 3 years ago as well (I don't remember these things, just judging by how many comments I got 2/17/06)

2) I honestly don't even remember writing this.

3) Thanks for the comments.

Picky, picky, picky. Just have fun - and this was fun! Thanks!

classic western cowboys and sheriff's saying a shoot out is sure to happen after this line is said
gaylewolfAus*
Feb 17, 2012

Good one - fun! I liked it the second time around too! And, as usual, I get a big kick out of the comments!

Feb 17, 2012

I'm seeing this one for the first time. I'm finally learning how to approach a teaser like this one: I looked at the caps first and saw 'this town', coupled with western phrase, and got it right away (although I thought "isn't" instead of "ain't" and "for both" instead of ...the both!! I'm a language skills teacher, so it's hard to get away from 'proper' English! It's still a "got it" in my book!!)

Received it in email, read the capitol I as lower case L, so threw myself completely off.

Fun then, and fun now. Love it.
