This is a quick one, to see if you are awake and paying attention.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Sep 30, 2006

When you are in the trick category, I will look for the deceiving point, first. Of course, after reading it throughly through. This was very sly, but I know you can add a little bit more of a hint of spice, to get tougher ones made. Come on, now!

"Is this a joke?" I thought. I looked at the category. Then I reread the question. Oooh....
MurfQ*ca*
Jan 08, 2007

Nice one. Made me smile, and considering what a rotten couple of days I've been having that's an accomplishment. I'll have to try this one out on a few ppl.

Jan 08, 2007

Really, really, really easy! Seeing that it was a trick, you would think most people would look back and reread...but I guess not!

Anyway, still a cute teaser! Good job fooling some.

Jan 08, 2007

I'm smiling!!!! Couldn't wait to read the comments. I finally learned that the trick category is usually a trick.
breathesunshineAus*
Jan 08, 2007

I got it right away so I feel smart today! It would be so easy to read this fast and miss that it says noon at the beginning though. If you did this it might be "time" to slow down!

hibraineph
Feb 19, 2007

Your question is very simple. "What time is it?". Well, the time when I was reading your question is 2:30 PM (Pacific Time). That's my answer.

Good one for the 1st graders.

Jan 08, 2010

Fun!
wordmama*
Jan 08, 2010

I agree with doehead's idea, although since I work in a learning center, I would have said 3rd grade.

When I first read the riddle and determined the word noon wasn't an optical illusion, I immediately recalled the punchline to a joke I learned when I was 8 or 9, "Time to get your clock fixed!" An editing suggestion: indicate 'for youngsters' on the top. It's scary to think that people past elementary school didn't "get" this.
UptheHillA*
Jan 08, 2010

Need to be there to get this one!

HABS2933Aca*
Jan 08, 2013

Totally missed the "at noon" part of the question but still said "time to get a new clock' as my line of thinking was the big had would not be directly on the 5 at quarter past, it would have moved slihtly.
HABS2933Aca*
Jan 08, 2013

*slightly, not slihtly, the "g" on my keyboard sticks and don't always notice right away it is missing.
iggy39Aus*

spikethru4*au*
Jan 08, 2013

HABS, when the big hand is on the 5, it's twenty-five past! Time for your clock to get a new owner?
Quocalimar*
Jan 09, 2013

I got it because it's like those dummy tests where you ask someone a question where the answer is in the question. I do those often.
