Since we have had ourselves one heck of a winter here I got fog first and then just started looking for weather words. It worked. Thanks. Nice job.

hi jazz, sorry, i read my messages after i recovered my account. my friend from school had found my password. i am very sorry at what has happened. now i have bad karma

i saw that you said you gave me bad karma, any way of it going back up please?

That was really fun. I admit, it was a bit easy, and, seeing as I'm possibly the smartest man alive, I got it in under a minute.

Vlerma I saw fog first and then started looking for weather stuff. If you know the theme, it's a lot easier.

You know I was going to let this go by, but after thinking about it for a while I decided to apologize to you Jazz because by my reading this and remarking as I did I gave it away to those who have to read everyone else's remarks before they become so intelligent. Sorry Jazz, I will keep that in mind for future reference. I guess I was just so trusting that everyone played fair.

QUITE EASY, I LIKED IT. HOWEVER, SMOG IS NOT A WEATHER WORD AND WE HAVE SOME OF THE WORLD'S WORST SMOG HERE IN BEIJING.

This was easy, but fun, once I got the first word. But that's the way a like them! Great way to start the day!

I too was looking to find words that would work for pig but then I just looked at the first answer and I did okay then.

Great teaser! I enjoyed it.
Take care...

Apr 07, 2007

A little too easy. Took about 30 seconds. Once you got FOG and MIST, everything else fell into place.
jazzmusician46Aau*
Apr 07, 2007

Thanks guys for the great comments.

Doehead: As usual, you are up to standard. I'm happy my grade 1 teaser suited you.
Starfruitca*
Apr 07, 2007

Yay! A teaser I could actually solve. That made me happy. It was easy but enjoyable.
Thanks
Pizzazz2uAus*
Apr 07, 2007

It did fall into order, once one caught on to the theme, but it was a terrific teaser! It IS amazing that we always have marvelous comments by Doe and Lmurray....LOL (Shaking my head by their self-proclaimed inteligence) Still in all, Jazz, an awesome teaser!
avonmaAus*
Apr 07, 2007

I happened to start with "fog," so I got the rest right away. It was fun - thanks!
bradon182001*us*
Apr 07, 2007

I gave up as the possiblities were endless even with the first word. I tried every combination, but couldn't get a theme so will have to say I think this was a very good teaser because it made me think (even tho I didn't get it.) Thanks for the work out.

I started off with Rig and Mast, so it was a bit difficult for me..
nascarjake3Aus*

I thought this was going to be hard, but I got the theme in about 7 seconds...
auntiesisAus*
Apr 07, 2007

This is a good one Jazz. I got it rather quickly, but that is because I finished the first grade. I didn't realize that doehead was only in the 1st grade. She must be a child wonder. Anyway, great teaser. I couldn't get the theme for a few seconds, then I discovered snow, and the rest just fell into place.
frozenrose_885Aus*
Apr 07, 2007

I got that real fast, record timing for me .
wordmama*
Apr 07, 2007

I got 5 of them immediately, then snow took a few seconds, helped by the theme. Lotsa fun. Thanks!

I wish doehead would take her negativity and get lost in the woods.

(I apologize, folks; I don't like being negative myself, but doehead's comments push me to that state.)

Apr 07, 2007

Why do you think doehead is female?
luckyduck
Apr 07, 2007

I live in CO and our weather changes every day. I don't know if that made a difference but I got that one pretty easy. I felt pretty dumb when I didn't get the last one since I already new the pattern! Good One!!! I liked it a lot!!!
luckyduck
Apr 07, 2007

Pablo---idk for sure if doehead is a girl and I no you aren't talking to me but a doe is a FEMALE deer so...
jamy400Aus*

Very clever! I loved it!
kauphi1976Aus*
Apr 07, 2007

ok tat took 23 seconds (one whole second for each letter). And no I aint no 1st grader cos I wouldnt have learnt half them words. Nice one Jazz. Make em harder and keep em comin

agrees with avonma

i thought slow was blow :blush:

Apr 08, 2007

Was anyone else thinking: RIG, MAST, WIND, BLOW, ____, SAIL and thinking a nautical/ship theme?
jazzmusician46Aau*
Apr 08, 2007

Thanks for your comments guys. It looks like I tricked a few of you.

Davidrools: I hadn't thought of your possibility. I might try that theme next time.
speedqueenkmwAus*
Apr 08, 2007

got it in a few seconds~that's a first for me! sometimes fun to have the answer pop into your head immediately, ya know?
wordmama*
Apr 08, 2007

Pablo, I used to think doehead was male based on the negativity, but then someone else referred to "him" as her or she, I don't remember which and then I felt dumb realizing that a doe is indeed a "mommy deer", as I say it to 1st or 2nd graders who don't know the word female. If doehead IS male, he's just proving how inappropriate he is, right down to his name!!
wordmama*
Apr 08, 2007

Oh, I just looked back; it was Auntiesis who said She and influenced me.
scallioAus*
Apr 09, 2007

Hurray, davidrools-
You and I think alike! While reading through the comments, I was beginning to think I was the only one that came up with a ship theme! Now I see I have company!

I thought SAIL, RIG, MAST, WIND, BLOW and SLUG.

Great teaser, Jazzy!
jazzmusician46Aau*

Thank you

I was stuck with the sailing theme as well, and couldn't get it out of my mind. Thanks!
QrystalAca*
May 10, 2007

I was kinda halfway between the weather theme and the ship theme .... thought the theme was air, and got the words FOG, MIST, WIND, BLOW, SMOG, and SAIL. Also thought of HAIL, and DUST, and decided not to think much more on it and went ahead and clicked on the answer.
dsheboAus
Jun 15, 2007

Great Teaser! I actually came up with Rig, Gust, Wind, Blow, Smaog, and Sail thinking that they were ship terms. Your's makes more sense I guess. Thanks for the great teaser!

I''l standby my original comment.
sunnybonghits*

Brilliant. Loved it.

Apr 07, 2010

Great teaser! At first I thought of slop instead of snow since that's what we had yesterday
gargphtca*
Apr 07, 2010

For the first 2 I got 'pig' and 'mutt'

But then I got stuck.

A nobrainer. Quite easy.
HABS2933Aca*
Apr 07, 2013

I agree that this teaser was easy. I however got fog straightaway as it wast the only word other than fig that fit the f_g pattern (well so would "fag" but didn't think the author would use it).
Once you get fog then the rest just fall into place.
I can see however that if you didn't see fog the rest would also be difficult to solve.
I do agree with the poster above who said SMOG is not a weather word. It may be made worse by weather, but in and of itself, it has nothing to do with the weather.
jaycr*us*
Apr 07, 2013

I missed the boat on this one, I came up with 5 sailing terms.

Apr 07, 2013

I enjoyed this teaser. I came up with Gust (as in a gust of wind) instead of mist. Nice teaser -

Whether doehead is male or female, he/she seems a bit too eager to impress upon the rest of us dolts how much our intelligence suffers in comparison to his/hers.
gaylewolfAus*
Apr 07, 2013

Lucasiwidcz: Read my lips. Repeat after me.
We are NOT dolts. Doehead, you are just a big, fat show off!!

Sorry - I was just 8 years old for a minute!
