Today Mooey has a challenging test from his mentor. He must spell all the words correctly. If he does, he will become a mentor, and teach other cows! Mooey studied as hard as he could the night before his challenge. He is on the last word of the list, and is scared! He is sure that the first 19 words are correct, but the last word is always a secret bonus word. Can you help Mooey?

Mentor: The last word is actually two words. It is your name. (Mooey's last name was Mooer)

Mooey was shocked! The bonus word was always extra-hard! He was just about to scrape "Mooey Mooer" in the mud, when he thought of something. It ended up making him a mentor. What did Mooey scrape in the mud?

What Next?

this was too easy and a bit of an imitation of other ones...ok teaser
Apr 14, 2007

E-z but good.
Apr 16, 2007

Too easy, but you put a trick in this one.
Apr 19, 2007

A little too easy
I kinda felt it was too much like other teasers on the website
Apr 19, 2007

Cool trick, got it quickly but it was still fun anyway.
Loved the little story.
Apr 20, 2007

I got it, I loved how you put it in there but it wasn't too unique. Ah well.
Apr 21, 2007

I must admit, there are a lot of trick teasers like this, but not bad.
Apr 24, 2007

I love teh cow thing but it was pretty easy. =). Great Teaster nonetheless.
Apr 29, 2007

ah. but it could be a double bluff. maybe mooey (mooey?) was SUPPOSED to write "mooey mooer".
Apr 29, 2007

yeah, its a pretty old trick... really easy but somewhat original
May 11, 2007

I love tricks! YAY COWS!

That one was easy. Kind of when I was a kid and they would say something like well if you're so smart spell it! Some people would spell smart others caught on and would spell "it", then if the kids wanted to be mean they'd say it was still wrong and say that they were supposed to spell the alternate. (Spell smart instead:rollha ha ha ha ha h yeah, they were mean. ha ha ha
Jun 06, 2007

Good one!!!

This is too old a gimmick, it's reminiscent of second grade when some smart alec kid would ask the colors of the american flag. When answered "red white and blue," he would retort, "'and' isn't a color." I usually punched idiots like this in the head.
Jun 11, 2007

It was well written. Thats all I have to say thats good about it.
Jun 13, 2007

Everybody knows this trick. Just adding to the list of school gimmicks, I told kids I could make them say purple. They asked how, and I would ask them to name the colors of the American flag. Then I'd say, "Ha, I told you I could make you say white!" Then they'd respond, "But you said you could make me say purple!". It didn't work all the time, but got plenty of laughs from my school mates. Try it.
Jun 25, 2007

Huh? You lost me at purple?
Jul 04, 2007

lol! I got it right! That was funy though!
Sep 08, 2007

Cows aren't guys, they're girls. Boys are bulls.

Oct 11, 2007

I got this one too!
Mar 31, 2008

ok teaser, but yeah, it was a bit too much like the others on here.

and cows are still terrifying
Apr 25, 2008

I thought it was "two words" because the mentor said the word is actually 'two words'...could that be an alternate answer?
Apr 29, 2008

FUN!!! but a easy..???
Jul 01, 2008

haha, good one.
Nov 04, 2008

I love how his name is Mooey Mooer
Nov 11, 2008

Cool off guys,
great teaser - i loved the cows!
Nov 11, 2008

So cows are smart as well as yummy?
Nov 11, 2008

What a cool setup for an old gag! Well done
Nov 11, 2008

As the comments indicate, this one is older than Moses. But it might be good fot the preschoolers.
Nov 11, 2008

that was good
Nov 11, 2008

Well, I'm not exactly a pre-schooler, but I liked this one. I'm sure it is a take on an old trick question, but I for one, never heard it before. Enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.
Nov 12, 2008

I love an occassional teaser like this. It's FUN!! Don't get in such a state that you forget to have FUN!!!
Dec 09, 2008

So THAT'S what cows do all day long - they spell! Fun teaser, and cute story!
Nov 17, 2009

This is udderly rediculous.
Feb 14, 2010

Easy teaser, but a good story line.
May 25, 2010

May 31, 2010

I love the cow thing, but in your last teaser Mooey was female, now he's male. In your next "Mooey" teaser, please keep Mooey's gender a constant.
Aug 16, 2011

AWESOME teaser!
Aug 16, 2011

AWESOME teaser!
Nov 11, 2011

Everyone has already said it. Easy and much like others that have been done before. Fooey Mooey!
Nov 11, 2011

Mooey was not a cow. "He" denotes the masculine and that ain't bull, but he is.
Nov 11, 2011

Again a good one for the younger crowd. But maybe it's time to MOOve this one to the trash barrel. And a to T & that dancing lady from Mi.
Nov 11, 2011

Not much to add - it's already been said! Today is 11/11/11 and since that's a rare occurrence, I'll have to do something special to celebrate this day! So, moooving right along... Thank you Doehead! Have a great day everyone!
Nov 11, 2011

I almost over thought this one
Nov 11, 2011

Very funny, too easy.
Thanks to all the vets out there.
Nov 12, 2011

so obvious it was "your name"
that trick was pulled on me all the time in kindergarten
happy late veterans day!
Nov 11, 2014

Waaay 2 EZ.
Nov 11, 2014

He wold also have been a mentor if he scratched out 'two words' or 'extra-hard' in the mud!!
Nov 11, 2014

Nov 11, 2014

I got this one and I liked it. Happy Veterans Day to everyone.
Nov 11, 2014

Thank you to all the vets out there.

Easy teaser, but cute for kiddies.
Nov 11, 2014

At first, I thought was going for " cash cow
Nov 11, 2014

I guessed correctly. However before settling on my answer, I couldn't help wonder why Mooey would have had any trouble writing his own name.
