Very good one, a little easy, but it just popped into my head. Which is not a surprise, as there is a lot of room up there.

Got it immediately, never saw the hint. Don't mind a quick, easy one; no muss, not fuss!
Jun 30, 2011

Excellent. Thank you.
Jun 30, 2011

Very clever teaser, really liked it!
Jun 30, 2014

I knew it had to do with one of the words in the teaser, so looked at the hint and then it was obvious. Nice one!

Here is my comment on the teaser:
I solved this one, but only after reading the hint.
Jun 30, 2014

BB02: "Looking at the TOTD of yesterday (6 comments, including my own) ... "

Can you count? There were 12 comments. The comments were posted by:
1. Babe
2. You
3. Catmom
4. Zykezex
5. You
6. You
7. auntiesis
8, You
9. GW
10. You
11. You
12. You
13. lukasiwicz

Still the teaser count now stands at 26 (as of this comment).
That means we had as many comments in ONE day then we did in the 3 years since the teaser first appeared.

And those 12 initial comments you mention were spread out over a period of 6 months. The first appearing on May, 28 and the last on November, 27.
Proof positive that this downward slide is not something new.
The really old teasers (from 2005ish) all got lots of comments yes but like I aid you have to take certain things into conseideration

Every site has more traffic when it is new and dwindles down.

MySpace was used by many millions of people, now it is a dead site.

IM though MSN was all the rage and now it too is gone, as is the best IM site ever to exist ICQ (most of the young folks won't even have a clue what that was)

Even FB, is dropping in popularity, though many of my friends are still "registered users" I have at least 20 of them who have no posted in 2 or more years.

Many of the people who stared out here were 13-17 when they did, kids who had a lot of spare time, now those same kids are in their 20s and 30s. They now have "better" things to do.

Sorry for the "jibber jabber" doodles, I was trying to make a point to our self appointed saviour. Though in order to be a "hero" you have to have followers, otherwise you are just a blowhard.
Jun 30, 2014

Fun? Too easy to be fun, I like a little more of a challenge.
Jun 30, 2014

@ BB02 & HABS 2933 Why don't you 2 take your squabbles somewhere else. Leave this site until you grow up and can play nice.
Jun 30, 2014

When I saw the answer I thought there could be "one among many." I couldn't spare much time on it , but had I doubt I would have gotten it. Good though.
Jun 30, 2014

You were precise and pointed out the facts HABS. Now if the BB stays away this site will improve. Maybe BB will stick to his real job. Bell Boy in a flop house. Isn't that what BB really stands for-BellBoy?
Jun 30, 2014

1. This teaser was really good.

2. I didn't know there was such a thing as fake money. I only know real money and counterfeit money. Isit the same?

3. I learnt a new word: Goombye.
Jun 30, 2014

.... and I'll vacate for 90 days (except for the - maybe - fortunate Posting or two.

Oh .... my "hypothesis" is that the presence of BB02 on any given thread at any given time has NO (ZERO, ZIP, NIL, NADA) effect on the significance of quality or quantity of comments.

I'll vacate for 90 whether it (HABsie) takes the bait ... er .... uh ... WAGER or not.

What say ... HABS???


Jun 30, 2014

you got 30 minutes, HABSie ...

I hope you do it ....

It would be FUN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jun 30, 2014

Good one. Not too easy, but for some reason I got it.
Jun 30, 2014

I loved this one. Clever! I didn't get it in 2011 and I didn't get it today. But I thank you for posting!!
