Got the first 2 easily, but the last 2 were beyond me.
Oct 08, 2007

Another good one Jazz. Keep them coming.
Oct 08, 2007

Fun one!!
Oct 08, 2007

Easy, but fun! The tense of "joking" doesn't quite agree with the tense of the answer, but it gets the point across.
Oct 08, 2007

Cool teaser.
Oct 08, 2007

Good one - thanks.
Oct 08, 2007

got 3 right, last one stumped me..... joking= banter??
Oct 08, 2007

Awesome!! I didn't get even one of them but it was fun trying!
Oct 08, 2007

not today--too confusing
Oct 08, 2007

Very nice, but still need coffee to understand!!
Oct 08, 2007

Oh man, I could not get #2 or #4!

Thanks for the great brain workout, Jazzy!

I liked this one, everything just fell into place in my mind, so it seemed easy. I couldn't tell if that flag is NZ or AUS, (could't tell if it has the six stars for AUS or just 4 for NZ) but either way you only have to wait another four years for a chance at winning the rugby worldcup, but England or France will be in the final in a couple of weeks, hopefully England !
Oct 08, 2007

Nice and not too difficult !!!
Would like to see more like this as well..
Oct 08, 2007

my previous comment was 'banter'...a pommy joking with the Bruces&Sheilas down in Australia.
Oct 08, 2007

This was a fun teaser, and I enjoyed it. Thanks, Jazz.
Oct 08, 2007

I dont really this one.
Oct 08, 2007

Wow I loved this one Should have tried harder on #4 But loved the concept and the teaser
Oct 08, 2007

Fun teaser! As to "joking" and "banter" it doesn't have to involve a quiestion of tense. I would call them nouns as in "There was a lot of good-natured joking (banter) going on at the party."
Oct 08, 2007

I really enjoyed this one.
Oct 08, 2007

Nice one. I didn't know "listed" could be used like that, so I couldn't answer the third one.
Oct 09, 2007

great teaser, thanks for giving it to us
Oct 09, 2007

good one.. i agree...banter is a noun...but i guessed and got it...#3 stumped me... listed, tilted?...rattle almost got me too except it was the only thing that rhymed with cattle...guessed and got it right... otherwise a good mind-boggler
Oct 10, 2007

Thanks guys, I'm glad you enjoyed working on this teaser.

Yorkshire...I don't mind a bit of banter, especially when it comes to us knocking the socks off you guys at the cricket!
Oct 11, 2007

Really good teaser
Oct 12, 2007

That one was very enjoyable. I got them all with after a little brain fart.
Thanks for the teaser.

Very good teaser. I didn't find it very hard to figure out. I liked it cuz it was just right. Took me about 10 minutes to get all 4 of them.
Oct 08, 2010

Couldn't get #3...great teaser! Thanks!
Oct 08, 2010

Thanks for this teaser, jazz! I got 2 & 3 right away, and got the first one when I was no longer rattled! The last I would have gotten if I'd had 10 min. at that time, but I didn't! Satisfied anyway!
Oct 08, 2010

Great teaser! Keep 'em coming
Oct 08, 2013
