First thought was money, then friends, then i don't know, so I had to check out the answer. Really liked this one
KarmenAus*
Feb 11, 2006

I'd thought "memories"
(user deleted)
Feb 11, 2006

Can I say that the answer is clever, but there are way to many answers that could be right. My first instict was trash. The eco friendly side of me I guess.

zonahoboAus*
Feb 11, 2006

I thought this was short and pretty good. A nice teaser snack for late in the evening. When I asked my daughter, her answer was "children". Funny! Lots of good alternatives in the comments .. I thought her answer was pretty good to. Is she thinking of knocking me off or something?
chidam11Ain*

Ouchy1*us*
Feb 11, 2006

jabdrAus*
Feb 11, 2006

Great one! My first thought was photos..
thecelticgod*
Feb 11, 2006

Agree with others that there are too many possible answers. Mine was "mess." BTW, "Spondulix" is an old term for money.

Feb 11, 2006

k, gjpu4n1985JFSPOK! Sorry, the cat jumped on my keyboard!!!! Very easy riddle, but my mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and friend all thought it was poo.
Keep 'em coming, violingirl.

P.S. BESA, break it up. Who cares about egg beaters, you fools? I have a chainsaw!!!
benjam*ca*

Feb 11, 2006

I remember seeing a sign in a state park kind of simular. It was "Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints!" I thought it was cool..
bluehawk*us*
Feb 11, 2006

REMINDS ME OF "FOOTSTEPS IN THE SAND".
I LIKE THIS ONE.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
bootscooter58*us*
Feb 12, 2006

Thanks for the great teaser -- I actually thought "skin cells" .. see how we over think things?? Thanks for the fun and keep them coming.
vlermaAus*
Feb 12, 2006

Enjoyed most of the comments. I also thought it was freinds, but I love Footprints in the Sand so am very satisfied with this answer, although many do apply. Vigo and Besa, for once you guys made your challanges entertaining. Much nicer than the negative thoughts. But rather than an egg beater you need a hungry squirrel.
benjam*ca*
Feb 12, 2006

I agree with VLERMA. I laughed for 10 min after reading your argument!!! And, by the way, who cares about boom-boxes. I WILL THWART YOU WITH MY MIGHTY TRASH CAN!!! YOU WILL NEVER GET AWAY WITH THIS ONE, VIGO95!!! BESA, YOUR WRATH IS A PEANUT COMPARED WITH MY WAR ELEPHANT OF A TEMPER!!!

Fun teaser. I thought of miles travelled.
freeflyingbutteAus*
Feb 12, 2007

Great teaser! I was one of the many who thought it was money! I guess I'm still thinking of tax time and all the overtime I've been working lately!
marschie*il*
Feb 12, 2007

I thought that anything we make we leave behind, so the answer could be "ANYTHING."
lmurray*cn*
Feb 12, 2007

WHAT ABOUT LOVE?
anion*
Feb 12, 2007

I didn't get it either. I was not thinking on the same line as anyone else. Oh well. Good job.
katjojoAus*
Feb 12, 2007

I agree with many others...there are alot of "right" answers. I personally thought it was hair. The more you have the more there is to loose.
coachpisco*
Feb 12, 2007

Short and sweet
builderus*
Feb 12, 2007

I am shocked and pleased, yea Imurray.
Fun but easy teaser

I thought for sure I had it with, "PROGRESS"
bradon182001*us*
Feb 12, 2007

My first thought was money. Guess if you think about it, it could be a lot of answers,, including love Imurray.
StarberryAca*
Feb 12, 2007

Cute Teaser!
puttumupus*
Feb 12, 2007

there was to many posiable answers to this riddle .so i say any answer was a correckt one...
puttumupus*
Feb 12, 2007

keep up the good work tho at least it was a better one then some of the others i have read
Pizzazz2uAus*
Feb 12, 2007

Easy, but fun to think about! Hmm! Everyone seems to be coming up with other answers! Apparently, this teaser is getting them to use their heads! WTG Keep these a coming!
campfirecutieAus*
Feb 12, 2007

The more money I make, the more I spend and leave behind! Oh well, good teaser anyway!!
phyllisa*us*
Feb 12, 2007

I agree with Puttumup, and I am LOL over the other comments
Blondie116*us*
Feb 12, 2007

loved it!
hancar*
Feb 12, 2007

My first guess was a hole - still sounds good to me
scallioAus*
Feb 12, 2007

Loved it!

My guess was MEMORIES.
MagicFingers
Feb 12, 2007

Loved it, although my thought was HISTORY....
hradilv**
Feb 12, 2007

Yeah, it was cute, but a little - no a lot - too vague.
cloughmeAws*
Feb 12, 2007

my first thought was "a mess"

no coffee yet...

good job!
FatHeadAus*
Feb 12, 2007

"Take only pictures.
Leave only footprints.
Kill nothing but time."

--Sign at a nature exhibit.
ThrashmeisterAus*
Feb 12, 2007

LOL... at first I thought it was something that had to do with the natural process of the human body... because of "leave behind"... and... well... I think you get my drift. >_>;
speedqueenkmwAus*
Feb 12, 2007

That was my first thought, also, Thresh. Bodily function
speedqueenkmwAus*
Feb 12, 2007

oops, Thrash, spelled it wrong
gallopingbooAus*
Feb 12, 2007

great! my first thought was money
QrystalAca*
Feb 12, 2007

WHEW! I wasn't the only one thinking bodily functions. In particular, I was thinking, uh, .. ..... gas. But I knew that couldn't be right, so I kept thinking.

My "final answer" was TIME. You can make time for things, but you're always leaving more behind... *shrug* it worked for me. Many of the answers given would've worked, because it's just too open. Oh well, what can we do except count ourselves as right if we want, right?

I also love that someone quoted the nature sign; I always think about it when I'm out on a hike! Except I take not only pictures, but I always make sure to take a few pieces of garbage out of there, because there's always some...
notsosmart111Aie*
Feb 12, 2007

I love riddles keep em coming!
Infinitoid*
Feb 12, 2007

lol the thing is it could be a lotta stuff,
but i was so sure that the answer was "poop"
millie02*
Feb 12, 2007

I thought it was memories. Good idea, but the riddle needs to be longer so there aren't so many right answers...
OhEmGeeA*
Feb 12, 2007

i though it was good and dont listen to the comment above this! it was awesome
sand_rat
Feb 12, 2007

Yep.......easy, but it was fun.
AbsurdHero*us*
Feb 12, 2007

I found it awfully ambiguous. I was thinking "debt".
aaks94Aus*
Feb 12, 2007

haha, i thought it was "friends"
ShikamaruAus*
Feb 12, 2007

ya just a little to simple i think. but still good. i thought of something that i wont mention.
breathesunshineAus*
Feb 12, 2007

I thought it was idea but my idea was the wrong thought!
masquerademe235*us*
Feb 12, 2007

Nice- short, sweet, and to the point, and not too hard.
clfourmo61Aus
Feb 13, 2007

I said footsteps. Close enough
for me.
Sand-Storm*us
Feb 13, 2007

hate to give my age away but I remember that one from kid years. still good tho.
Zag24Aus*
Jan 13, 2009

A good start, but I think you need another stanza. I had thought "a mess," which fits as well as the original answer. Skimming the comments, I see a number of people had other, equally good guesses.

Maybe something like,

I can be wet or I can be dry.
I'm a hole or a mound (but not very high).

(mud or sand, or prints on the floor)
precious1026Aus*
Feb 12, 2010

I thought the Teaser had its merits. It could be many things that one makes and leave behind.

I do like Mess. I don't like Mess, but its a thought, one I would leave behind. One makes many thoughts or create many thoughts and leave them behind.
It is a good teaser.
craniacAus*
Feb 12, 2010

All I could think of was trash. Well, actually there were a lot more possibilities -- too many really. The riddle needed a qualifier to narrow the field down.
doeheadAus*
Feb 12, 2010

Heard this one too many times
kaaozzus
Feb 12, 2010

Good one. Did no one else guess history ?
patiencewithaP*us*
Feb 12, 2010

Fun!
sunnybonghits*
Feb 12, 2010

I think GAS would have been a better answer.
auntiesisAus*
Feb 12, 2010

People came up with lots of alternative answers, and I didn't get any of them.
avonmaAus*
Feb 12, 2010

Icame up with "trash"
But, "footprints" fits the riddle better
It could have been a lot of things.
Oh, well. Thanks for posting.
Babe*
Feb 12, 2013

Wow! That was way too easy! Took me about 30 seconds to figure that one out. I liked it though. It made me smile
rob77*ca*
Feb 12, 2013

My answer was car emissions.
jaycr*us*
Feb 12, 2013

Group me with the people that guesssed money.
HABS2933Aca*
Feb 12, 2013

The editors have really tightened up the regulations for approving a teaser it would seem. I have had numerous teasers rejected in the last number of months based on "too many possible answers" that had no where near as many impossibles as this one does.
cutebugAus*
Feb 12, 2013

This one was very weak and worn out.
