On the 7th Day

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

On July 7th, I had a most unusual day. I woke up at exactly 7:07, stumbled to my refrigerator and had a 7up. I got dressed, went downstairs, and caught the number 7 bus to go to my office on 77th street. While sitting in my office on the 7th floor, it dawned on me how my day was going so I called my bookie and placed a $777 bet on the number 7 horse in the seventh race, whose name was Seventh Heaven, to win.

Do you know what happened?




What Next?

This is a joke not a trick. The answer is a guess and you don't need to even think about it anyway. Better luck next time!

Funny! In life that's the way the "7" seems to go...Can't always bet it but don't dare bet againt...typical

I think this is an old Eddie Canter joke, but it's still good for a laugh or two.Thanks.
RukiaAus*
Nov 21, 2006

it was really lame. would have been better if you bet it to take 7th placed. but since it never said if the bet was he took 1st or not, it doesn't matter.

The answer was obvious, but I could see where you were trying to take us. Thanks.

Nov 21, 2006

Cute and fun. I don't care if it was easy. Easy puzzlers can be just as fun as hard ones. Oh, and Dear Editors: Please ignore Imurray's rant. What is it with this guy? He ought to try following Thumper's father's advice for a change: If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Good thing I had my toasted oat cereal this morning. It gave me the horse sense to figure this one out. However, what really caused him to lose was that the jockey was 7 lbs. overweight.

Good one-- I'm in 7th heaven!

I've heard this joke before, so I knew it, but you could still submit to Wocka. I don't see it as a teaser either but I didn't mind at all.

It was a cool idea...but really easy, given the theme of the thing was the number 7...
auntiesisAus*

Hilarious!!! Easy, but still funny. I don't know why people [like imurray] can't just have fun. It worked for me.

this really wasn't a brain teaser. but as a joke it was alright. it was preety predictable.

Yea, it's a joke, but I still thought it was hilarious. (For being so predictable that guy should have had more since...)

Imurray has NO sense of humer.Please ignore him.I loved it.
jcann*us*
Nov 21, 2006

I laughed out loud and immediately read it to one of my co-workers (who also enjoyed it). It seems to me that it could be classified as a teaser. You have to try to figure out that the answer would probably have something to do with the number 7.

I thought it was a lot of fun.

When I envision all those writing comments I picture some really cool, upbeat, tolerant people and then I picture the mean spirited, negative ones. I'm thankful that the nice outnumber the snobs!
It is posssible to give an opinion without being mean. Perhaps that is the puzzle you were meant to figure out.

Nov 21, 2006

Since a.m. or p.m. is not stated for 77, the thing lacks credibility

that was so cute! The final question was slightly ambigous, but if you would have been anymre specific it would have been obvious, so I think it's fine the way it is.

Thank heavens you used 7's instead of 6's or we would all be in troubled. Cute.

Nov 22, 2006

I can partially agree with LM, but the teaser is a good teaser. Easy, but there does seem to be quite a few repeats! Great one to the creator, though! Let us remember, everyone, this is a comment section, and different people have different views, good and/or bad! Also, the delete this comment is available, if the comment sound offensive.

DUH! CAN'T GET ANY EASIER THAN THIS.

WHERE'S THE TRICK?

DEAR EDITORS: THIS IS THE WEAKEST TEASER I HAVE SEEN. PLEASE DO NOT RE-RUN IT AGAIN.

A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE, AND MINE AND PROBABLY ALMOST EVERYONE ELSE'S WILL BE WASTING READING THIS ONE.
starsky13*us*
Nov 26, 2006

This was really cute; easy; a joke with lucky 7! I liked it. lmurray, please keep your negative comments to yourself since we collectively get pleasure out of the creativity of each unique person; perhaps you should find out if you are suffering from depression!LOL
jacstop*
Nov 27, 2006

the funny thing is that I solved it on today, Nov.27th!
sumZApk*
Dec 08, 2006

when i solved it u had exactly 77 comments !! FREAKY !!! [wink]
QrystalAca*
Dec 12, 2006

What really got me is ... well, I have this thing with the number 37. It haunts me. So anything about numbers that keep repeating in any story makes me remember my "thing" with 37...

So can you guess, without looking, what this teaser's ID number is? 3737.

*faint*

(I didn't get the answer. I was thinking the answer was: "Yes, I know what happened. You woke up at 77, stumbled to your refrigerator, had a 7up, got dressed, went downstairs, caught the number 7 bus to go to work, called your bookie and placed a $777 bet on the number 7 horse in the seventh race." The end. OR: And then you left the story unfinished. OR: And then you woke up.)

It was cool no matter what anyone (coughImurraycough) has to say. Imurray, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
ArgenRaquet
May 24, 2007

Hillarious!! Even though I guessed the right answer, I laughed out loud! This is a great joke to tell to anybody

Aug 31, 2007

But he might have made the bet that the horse ran the 7th place, so he might have won.

It didn't say that he had bet the horse ran the 1st place, did it?

Nov 21, 2009

Cute, cute. The people who don't like these teasers should stop coming here to read them, And if they are compelled to come here anyway, then they should stop posting and save the rest of us from wasting our time to read their negative thoughts.
I liked it, it was cute. Thanks for repeating it so the newer folks get to see it.

Something like this happened for real to a man in Dublin.
wordmama*
Nov 21, 2009

I can picture Henny Youngman or Rodney Dangerfield delivering such a joke. It didn't take me as long as 7 seconds to supply the natural, logical (based on the rhythm of the set-up) answer to the question--but it sure gave me a smile when it was actually right!

hubbamutt777tus*
Nov 22, 2009

yes, ignore imurray, he's always. . . . well. . . GRUMPY. really fun, but the question was so open, i thought it meant "how is this possible?" and i immediately gave up, as usual. great job, though.
avonmaAus*
Nov 22, 2009

That was fun! I didn't get it, (I should have!),but I liked it.
elentirAus*
Nov 23, 2009

I noticed that a few comments went unanswered... so I thought I'd throw this out there. In horse racing, a bet to 'win' is a bet for 1st place. Other position bets are 'place' and 'show', which are 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Those bets pay if your horse comes in that position or better. I've personally never seen a horse race that allows you to bet on any position less than 3rd.

May 31, 2010

Got it in seven seconds but still really good. . I'm not surprised that it was excellent because it was submitted by rayneeday. Your teasers always rock, Rayn!!!!
thebrain789tus*
Jun 20, 2010

I've seen it before, but it's obvious. Actually, I think the trick is you think he WOULDN'T come in seventh, because you think it's tricking you into thinking he WOULD.
crocodiletca*
Aug 18, 2010

Actually, something like this happened to a guy in Dublin. True story.
crocodiletca*
Aug 31, 2010

Oops, sorry for double-posting.
Babe*
Nov 21, 2012

Boy is that ever an oldie, and the answer was so obvious even if you had not heard it before. Glad those of you who never heard it before enjoyed it.
HABS2933Aca*
Nov 21, 2012

I've never heard it before, but as Babe said it was an obvious answer. I however would not consider this a teaser of any kind, trick or otherwise. At best it was a groaner of a joke.
gaylewolfAus*
Nov 21, 2012

Yes it was very obvious - but it was a joke!
cutebugAus**
Nov 21, 2012

I've known about the terrible 2's, but this was the terrible 7's. This non teaser should never surface for another 7777777 years.
