Good Teaser, But I Got This One Right As Soon As I Saw That It Was A Language Teaser

I haven't actually looked at the answer yet, but I'm assuming its abominable (A-Bomb-In-A-Bull)

Nice, but too easy.

Pretty easy, but cute Good job

And how do you describe the aftermath of the explosion?
(user deleted)
Jun 27, 2003

ernsti: The word for the aftermath of the explosion? Messy.

this riddle is one of my favorites!!!
ThreeTwoOne*
Jun 27, 2004

The solution is clever, but the riddle gives itself away. Using a thesaurus on the description might have created something trickier, e.g.:

"If an uncastrated steer were to swallow a stick of dynamite strapped to a ticking clock, which word would best describe the situation?"

In this case, at least you haven't said "bomb" and "bull" in both the question and the answer...still a clever ruse.

Nice teaser!
one of the few i get right...
billybob_thorton*
Jun 27, 2004

Nice teaser, but the word "scandalous" would hardly describe the situation at hand. ThreeTwoOne: I have no idea what on earth you're talking about!
vbfreak55
Jun 27, 2004

this is like the second teaser i've ever gotten right, without seeing the answer!! so i guess it was an easy one. but, i kinda liked it, i also think it was more like a joke, but that's ok.

I'm happy I got it! Good, more of a joke, but good!

Hi ymiroc. Love the Pun but
Bull's don't have Udders. Cows do.


That was great, went right over my head! I really laughed when I saw the answer.

Can't say that bull was full of.....
Kaboom!!!!!!

Ha! Ha! H! thanks for the laff eh?

Feb 06, 2008

As puns go, this one was udderly abominable.
It belongs in Wiley's Dictionary.

Feb 06, 2008

Nice one--probably would have been more challenging to ask "if a male cow swallows an explosive device...." rather than how it was phrased, if you wanted to make it a little more difficult.

Feb 06, 2008

i agree it is more of a joke than it is a teaser... and having multiple choices made it way too easy
MadelulabelleAus*
Feb 06, 2008

I agree with ThreeTwoOne about synonyms, but it was a good teaser anyway!!!
