In each sentence below, the name of a fruit is hidden. Each of these fruits end with the word 'berry'. You won't find the word 'berry' itself hidden there of course, but try to find the missing part of each fruit to give it its full name.

1. He looked blue in the face from too much exposure to the freezing cold outside.
2. Boys, enter at your own risk!
3. We have a beautiful farm out in the countryside and we own a few goats, duck and one goose.
4. She got cranky when people pointed out her mistake.
5. The children are scared of his raspy voice, and stay well away from his house.
6. After a hard day's work at the farm, the horse gratefully collapsed on the straw heap.
7. Too late! The cake had turned into a black charred mass because everyone forgot about it!

Thanks y'all! I recently found boysenberry icecream and that's when I heard it for the first time as well! I am a berry fanatic and love to eat berries, so that's probably where this teaser came from!

This was a lot of fun because it wasn't TOOO hard, so as to be discouraging, but just enough to make me look verrrrrrry closely at the sentences a couple of times. I got them all right, though.... I give this one 5 stars!! *****

Good teaser. It was easy, but you still had to put on your thinking cap, and isn't that what this is all about?

May 25, 2006

This one was very easy but I liked the fact that you didn't put the whole word in the sentences to make it a little more difficult. The "find the word in a sentence" teasers usually aren't my favourite type of teasers but I liked this one.
bradon182001*us*
May 25, 2006

OOPs!!Guess I stuttered.Sorry.

I got all of them except for boysenberry. I was wondering, is it good? I've never heard of it.

Good one. I got all but gooseberry. I've never heard of that kind.
rhmaustin*us*
May 25, 2006

I loved this one. Boysenberries are great, but not available nationwide like blueberries and strawberries. However, gourmet grocery stores usually stock boysenberry syrup, which is great on pancakes. Only one thing about the teaser -- don't horses sleep standing up, like cattle?

Berry interesting! I was only stumped on creanberry. Guess i should have looked harder at that sentence.
shawneeo*us*
May 25, 2006

I got them all!!!!! Yes, it was pretty easy, except for a couple. You could use the same idea and make them harder, and add even more, because it's a great idea. But there's nothing wrong with easy. Thanks!

lmurray: yes, you got someone's attention today. Where does it say a teaser can't be on a fifth grade level? We actually have many members who are in fifth grade. Maybe you need more... stuff in your life. That way, it wouldn't affect you so intensely when you didn't like the Daily Teaser!

LTSA fun, Brainster! DRL!!! Gotta find me some BLUEberry pie today!!!

May 25, 2006

Berry nice! It was quite easy, but it was also a lot of fun! Boysenberry was my favorite one; it's always great fun to find the answer across two or more words.

As for you, lmurray, your comments aren't necessarily the opposite of the truth, but you have horrible people skills. Then again, sometimes you're just flat out wrong. But besides that, if you have a problem with one of the teasers, why don't you offer helpful suggestions on how the teaser might be improved? Instead of just putting everyone down all the time for not giving you a good enough teaser, voice your opinion in a constructive way. For example, on this teaser you could have said,
"Brainster, I really liked your idea and where you were going with this! It might have been a little more challenging if the words were mixed within a couple of words, like for straw, 'Be sure to wash your hands when preparing pork, lest raw meat contaminate your other ingredients.'" Then, you are offering a real suggestion that might actually help someone create a better teaser in the future, instead of just complaining about everything over and over.

I'm in the mood for some berries! Good time with this one.
scallioAus*
May 25, 2006

Berry fun, but I have to agree it was way too easy. I liked the ideas about spreading the berries out between several words, like in the case of boysenberry. Another suggestion would have been to make shorter sentences and "scramble" the berries in. For expample: Some TRees are AWesome.

Thanks for taking them time to "tease" us.

Thank for the comments y'all.

rhmaustin: dunno about the horses. PM me if you are sure, I could always change it to the stable-boy!

lmurray: there is no requirement on this site that the teasers have to be super difficult. I also look forward to seeing YOUR first teaser.

I liked this one. This was pretty easy, but sometimes you just don't feel like thinking too hard, you know?
Boysenberries are yummy. I grew up next door to someone who had a boysenberry tree, and we used to eat them all the time. Mmmmm....

P.S. The church "elder" enjoyed this teaser, I'm sure.........

May 25, 2006

Agree that this was easy, but it was FUN. IMHO, there are two parts to any teaser, the difficulty level and the way it is constructed - which to me is what makes it fun. Great verse (like yesterday) or other great imagining and construction (like today) make these teasers great. Also, note they are called "teasers," not "head busters" or something similar. Trying to get a read on lMURRAY. Every single freakin' comment is negative. I can't figure out why someone who hates everthing on the site bothers each day. Also can't figure out if it's hemorrhoids, the cat ran away and died, or just a generally sour look on life in general. lMURRAY, if you want hard, go to a Soduku site and take on the black belt-level puzzles. This is a fun site for people who want a little challenge and also want a little fun (oops - there's that three letter word again - I apologize). Bottom line to this overly long post - thank you Brainster (and all others) for your time, creativity, and energy.

Like Trishgal, I just couldn't see the CRANberry in there! But I love these "find the word in the sentence" type teasers.

May 25, 2009

Good one, but you might should have specified that the words that get "berry" added are not necessarily all together (i.e. "boysen" was "boys, en" in the puzzle.) That confused me at first, until I realized that the "en" was seperate.

I thought it was a great teaser and I am years and years away from the fifth grade. I found it very enjoyable. I do wonder why everyone is giving imurray the time of day. Ignore him as he is probably enjoying the feedback. I do not know what he said either, but those kind of people need to be ignored. Great teaser!!!

This was very easy 4 me I got them all.
I did have fun with it. Thanks for posting it. A+
