I didn't really understand the title. Then again, I'm sort of tired right now, so I'm probably not thinking straight.
Jan 28, 2006

Wow, i really liked that. After seeing the answer it took me a minute to connect those last two lines, but then it clicked. Great job! Is the number in the title an average number of blinks or something?
Jan 28, 2006

Sorry maybe the title's too pop culture!
BLINK 182 is the name of a band.
Jan 28, 2006

haha i thought that number sounded familiar.
Jan 29, 2006

Very cute -- I didn't get it but once seeing the answer, and your explanation of the title it's like "doh"... of course!!!
Jan 29, 2006

WOW! Job well done on this one. I enjoyed it. I thought it was well written! Fun and not to easy. Hope to see more from you
Jan 29, 2006

Title kinda gave it away, but nicely done anyway.
Jan 30, 2006

i thought that it was boring and maby im just dumb but it didnt make sense to me anyway it still was okay but i just dont get it
Jan 30, 2006

I liked this one, it was a good idea. Keep it up!
Feb 01, 2006

Very clever...job well done!!
Feb 03, 2006

Oddly enough I got this one! Nice job!! I also know who Blink 182 is And I'm old!!!
Feb 10, 2006

I needed the hint to solve it, but trhen i thought 'I-182... and then it just came to me. Nicely done, keep it up!
Feb 12, 2006

At first it was kind of boring but if you started guessing and you got the correct answer, it's fun!
Feb 26, 2006

aarrgh! and i love that band, too!
Mar 12, 2006

Nice little riddle packed in a very small space .. and a witty title to boot! Great job and Happy TOD!
Mar 12, 2006

Huh? Who? What? When? Where? Whats the 411?
Mar 12, 2006

A really great teazer! Keep up the good work
Mar 12, 2006

OK, would one of you geniuses please explain what the last two lines about mylast four a connected series but my last three seen on paper? There should be an explanation in the answer when its something like this, whatever this is...

But I'm always respectful of the time and effort to make up a teaser, so thanks!
Mar 12, 2006

The last four letters of the word "blink" are L-I-N-K (link), a connector. You often find ink (the last three letters of the word) on paper.

Great teaser! I got it from the hint and the title. Clever!
Mar 12, 2006

Man you lost me maybe ageneration gap EYE never seen one like that before
Mar 12, 2006

lol very funny bobbet ... it was ok ... i thought eyelash it cleans and protects close ... but i was wrong .........
Mar 12, 2006

now that SHAWNEEO explained it I understand but the whole thing was kind of confusing. Thanks Shawneeo for the explanation
Mar 12, 2006

Sorry I mean TRACEY above
Mar 12, 2006

Mar 12, 2006

Oh man, that was good! Stumped me, even after I saw the answer. I was like, "what?" and then i saw ink and link. That's what got me in the teaser too... I was like, "four last what?" Yeah, stumped me! But VERY nice!!
Mar 12, 2006

Mar 12, 2006

hmm, i dont get it even after the explanation,
Mar 12, 2006

how do you post a teaser???
I have a teaser, and would like to post it. I dont know if its been done yet though.
Mar 12, 2006

that was great!! and the title was great too!!
Mar 12, 2006

i think that you need more concrete clues.
Mar 12, 2006

The hint gave it away.
Mar 12, 2006

I loved it!. Didn't get the right answer, looked at the hint and also thought eyelash, you know lash and ash, burned paper. I missed the title, darn it because had I looked at it even this oldie would have realized it was Blink. A late HB to a great teaser submitter. I agree, short, sweet and to the point. More pleeaassee!
Mar 12, 2006

Verrrrrrrrrrrry clever, SMEK. Because I don't know of that band, I don't think that I would ever have gotten it ... ... but it was cleverly written, and now I've learned something. Thanx!
Mar 12, 2006

LOVE the title =D
Mar 12, 2006

very clever..
Mar 12, 2006

I got it, the title really gave it away. The only thing I was wary about was the 293. SMEK, can you explain what it is. I too, thought eyelash, although glancing at the title I quickly figured it out. It was a really great teaser, SMEK!!!!!!!!!! I am familiar with that band too, and like it (as far as listening to it once a month goes). Very clever, very clever. I must ask, but where do all your ingenious teasers come from (not that I like all of them, but merely see a bunch of your teasers once in a while).
Mar 12, 2006

i didnt get it once i saw it i thought i was the most stupid person in the world
Mar 12, 2006

I like those kind...think of more!!
Mar 12, 2006

I agree with shawnee!
No disrespect to smek. I'm a little off kilter on this
Mar 12, 2006

totally lost on this whole teaser
Mar 12, 2006

Mar 12, 2006

Mar 12, 2006

Mar 12, 2006

Read Tracy2209, florida girl and you'll get it. I didn't at first either but she explains it well. Thx Tracy2209!
Mar 13, 2006

Great teaser! Love it.
Mar 13, 2006

Very good! I knew what the last two lines meant right away, once I saw the clue, I knew the answer. Good job!
Mar 13, 2006

Oooooooooh NOW I get the title...very clever! Great teaser and keep 'em coming!
Mar 13, 2006

I don't think this made a whole lot sense...I'll get it after I click "Add Comment", yeah?
Mar 13, 2006

Why did I have to skip the title THIS time? It was all right there. Nice one.
Mar 16, 2006

Was not able to solve this one. It was a great teaser/riddle. Congrats, smek, you did well. Unfamiliar with the band, although I did subtract, just had no idea what it would have meant. Also, thought "eyelash". Just call me cornfused. Thanks, Mona
Mar 16, 2006

I have went over this several times and i still don't get it i guess you have to be a blink 182 fan to get it, i got that from the other comments.
Mar 24, 2006

very clever, written very well.
Jun 11, 2006

I like Blink 182 but still didn't get it! Shoulda looked at the title a second time! Great job!
