Very clever.. I was thinking a song... you could play one, tell one, make one, and crack while singing one (voice).. the cracked is a bit of strech though.

I thought it was a bell, like the liberty bell it can be cracked, it has to be made, it can be tolled (thought it was wordplay on told), and it can be played

I thought the answer was 'PUZZLE' at first, I guess at a push it could be an alternative answer! Maybe?!?
Then suddenly the answer Joke came to me & I realised that is a much more sutable answer
Nice One! Very simple but clever!

I DON'T GET how someone could NOT know how to play a joke...what dull lives they lead if no one plays jokes on THEM.

Joining the ranks of people who thought it was an egg until I got past "made" I dan't know why I automatically thought egg. Maybe my brains are scrambled. Yep, brains omelet, coming right up.

I got a joke, but the expression "to play a joke" doesn't really have as much meaning here as it does in other parts of the world.

Very well done teaser. Had me going for a min., and then it just popped into my head.

Jun 28, 2008

I thought it was and egg at 1st, but then I didn't know how an egg could be played or told (I guess you could play with the baby chick that comes out of an egg). Funny teaser!
avonmaAus*
Jun 28, 2008

I kept trying to make "code" fit, and finally looked at the answer. All the clues fit "joke" but I never think of "cracked" a joke, although I've heard it used.
Good one, though.

The riddle itself is too general, many things can be cracked,made,told and played. But I answered puzzle game lol XD.

Jun 28, 2011

The real JOKE is the editors that keep repeating wornout teasers!!! What is my friends opinion?
gaylewolfAus*
Jun 28, 2011

That was the easiest teaser I've seen - I thought "a joke" before I read it through!
bradon182001*us*

Took me a minute, but then it dawned on me. I had to laugh.

DO NOT READ YOU WILL BE KISSED BY YOUR TRUE LOVE TOMOROW,BUT IF YOU DON'T POST THIS ON 2 TEASERS YOU WILL TRAGICLY DISSAPEAR ,BELIVE ME IT WORKS
wordmama*
Jun 28, 2011

Don't usually get riddles, but once I discarded 'egg', I got 'joke' right away; some of us need a do-able one once in a while!

& doehead, if the editors didn't repeat, I, for one, would be missing some fun teasers! Some of us are not on this site every year, every day!!
gaylewolfAus*
Jun 28, 2011

KittyGirl19, you've made me very nervous. I'm not sure if I'm not supposed to read something, or I shouldn't kiss my true love. BUT I would like an inch or two to disappear from my hips, so I'm going to take my chances! I'll let you know in a day or so what happens!

I was trying to think of everything that could be cracked and should have known about jokes, but I came up with "voice" and was wrong. That was a good one! Thanks!

On-line; 4 Braingle members and 361 guests; 1:36 (USA-CST)

G'morn .... 60a (USA-CST)

400 or so Brainglers on-line now (9 members, remainder "guests").

Hiya, HABsie ... (I know you're reading this).

I've been in touch with one of the "heavies" (BIG-number Puzzler you listed recently) ... and should have some interesting new stuff soon. I'll get back on here in a little while.

BB02 - please stop addressing me in your comments, keep my name out of your mouth...
Not that it really matter anyway as this is getting old and boring to me and I am taking a break from the site (observe the "last online" status on my profile it will reflect this).
And I will not be renewing my membership nor those of other members of the household.
This is a direct result of BB02.
I am done.
catmom*us*

My first thought was an egg, second choice was voice, third choice.... lets just say I wasn't even close.
BadBunnee02*us*
Jun 28, 2014

Hey HABsie .....

Sorry to see you go (really ... I really am) ...

Lest Jake (owner/operator of this webbie) feels your loss TOO much ....

Here's what I gonna go ...

You give Jake the number of "household" accounts you have (no more than six ... let's keep it reasonable) ... and have him contact me for my VISA number and I'll sign "you" up FOR LIFE (auto-renewal if he wants) as well as your household.

It's not just me. Dad (in his "last wishes" ... not the will which dealt with the legal stuff )... asked me to continue with Braingle using his DB of around 900-1000+ semi-developed and raw ideas for rebuses.

But ... for me ... it's a testament of how much I love Braingle and respect Jake for what he originally wanted to do with it.

I still think it's the best and most powerful language learning-tool on the net.

Send him an "e' .. get it done.

Then have him verify when the bills are paid. Just so's you'll know this is not an empty gesture. (hey ... that'd make a GREAT rebus ... "mtbird" ... get it? ... get it? ... ) ( nooo ... you probably wouldn't).

I'm doing this for all those who've - up to this point - made Braingle what it is.

What's your story?

BB02

Here is my comment on the teaser:
Very easy way to start my day.
HABS2933Aca*
Jun 28, 2014

"What's my story"? What do you mean? My story is I enjoy(ed) Braingle and the various sections therein but the teaser section is now becoming a bit of a bore. OR least the comment thread.
I have rethought my rash decision to abandon Braingle. I have decided that while I will henceforth be avoiding the Teasers section, I will continue to enjoy the quizzes, contribute to the TBs of which I am member and play and run both WWG and WTB.
I wil not be bullied into leaving site by some Keyboard Cowboy.
Hope all i well in "New Zealand"
BadBunnee02*us*
Jun 28, 2014

HABsie ... glad you reconsidered ....

My offer will continue to stand, though, if needed in the future.

And I don't want you to think I was trying to pressure you into continuing under my largesse (LIU) or that your wish to eschew (LIU) Braingle-participation would be abortive.

OR ... that it was a "golden-hearted" gesture.

Trust me ... "hearts-of-gold" I have not (some aver it doesn't even exist ... in ANY molecular form) ...

Although the NZ job is turning out to be incredibly lucrative (so my support of you/household would not make a significant dent) I think I can even get it as a "travel write-off".

I'm taking a few days vacay back in the States over the 4th and will spend a couple nights in-out at the same hotel (the one with the clock) in Tokyo.

I got acquainted with the Owner-Operator and showed him how to use his new booking-billing-advert software which will save him a jillion yen a year and also hooked up his new "3-D" printer (even makes filing cabinets for hard copies).

So he's "on-my-hook" for favors. Also, he's not heard the story (yet) of HABsie's clock. He's got a great sensa Yuma (for not having been there) so I think he's gonna LOVE the tale.

I also think I can get his granddaughter a job offer by one of my clients in L.A. She's got a LOT of skills that would do her well in the States.

Gotta go ...

(welcome back)

BBO2 - I do not need, nor want, your charity. I can well afford my own membership.
You are still working. I (at 41) have been retired for almost 10 years. I had to stop working for medical reasons and though I do not draw a pension form the government at all (though I am entitled to it) I somehow manage to survive quite well. My house wll be paid off in full before the end of this year (I bought it in 2009).
So again, thank you for your offer but it is not necessary. Why not gift some of the other Brainglers a membership.

BBO2- If you want to give a gift. Disappear, that would be a gift to everybody.
BadBunnee02*us*
Jun 28, 2014

Hey ... doodler .....

How'd it go with the editors?

Not good, huh ????

Maybe they discovered people like a little "jibber jabber" every now-and-then with the other stuff.

Gives it a little class, don't you think?
