First thing I thought of was R.I.P., and at first I thought that it was something 2 do with a graveyard...clever, but sorta lame on my opinion.

I laughed so loudly after reading the answer! This goes to favourites! (Am I crazy or was this really funny???)

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THERE IS NO EXPLANATION TO THIS ONE AND I DO NOT UNDERSTAND AT ALL HOW YOU ARRIVE AT THE ANSWER. THIS ISN'T GOOD AT ALL, UNLESS YOU MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS GOING TO UNDERSTAND. I HAVE NOT A SINGLE BIT OF A CLUE.

Aug 14, 2004

huh? error on a grave? then to grave error? where do you get that from? start at the very beginning, please. how does RPI become error on a grave?? and what do these letters mean?
doggyxpus*
Dec 29, 2004

See, on graves people write R.I.P. - Rest In Peace. The writer of the teaser mixed up the letters making it an error on a grave/a grave error.

Cute teaser - Clever Like some others, I got the RIP, but not the final answer. But what I always enjoy are the comments - Thanks for those, Jimbo and tuckpaw! and those who thought it was lame - come on - laugh a little bit!

Aug 10, 2007

I also was a bit confused. I got the RIP from RPI but I didn't think it had anything to do with the teaser. Oh well.
Dudet772
Aug 10, 2007

Haha...I never would have thought of that on my own (although I did think that it had something to do with R.I.P.). I loved it!!!

kirstydh
Aug 10, 2007

this is also for username umm it means it is a grave error you retard instead of rip witch its how it supposed to be its rpi a grave error username dont do them if you dont get the answer..
kirstydh
Aug 10, 2007

puttumup i have been seeing you write bad things about everything for the past few days you need to just kick loose or something if you dont like them dont read them or just come up with your own and send it in... i think it might be a great idea for you...
chaskey*us*
Aug 10, 2007

Rest in peace was the first thought, but I couldn't go from there. The Answer was a very funny "Ha Ha, oh of course!"
jcann*us*
Aug 10, 2007

My answer was "Disturbing the peace" since peace was in the wrong place. I laughed out loud when I saw the correct answer. I guess everyone has their own sense of humor. I love a play on words.
craniacAus*
Aug 10, 2007

i don't deny this was funny, but it was a joke, not a teaser
mondayschild59Aus*
Aug 10, 2007

That was something, I don't know what but it was something.
Thanks for the post anyway. I got it wrong, but there is always tomorrow.

Monday~

Calm down everyone; it's just a pun/rebus combination. A "grave" error is usually one with dire consequences. In this case it was literally a "grave" error because tombstones are usually marked with R.I.P. (Rest in peace).

While it may not be rebus in a strict sense, it did put a smile on my face. Thank You Im_Para_Noid I thought it was cute.

Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh!
Trishgal*us*
Aug 10, 2007

Very clever
bestgirl*
Aug 10, 2007

This is for kirstydh. Calling someone a retard because they don't get a pun is, in my opinion, worse that what the people you are critizing have said. In addition, your grammer is atrocious. I suggest you check the mote in your eye before any more such comments.
teen_wizAca*
Aug 10, 2007

Love it. LOVE IT.

I'm pretty much the same as everyone else... figured out that it was mixed-up "Rest In Peace" but couldn't go from there. Brilliantly done. This one's for the fave box.
lilredc5*
Aug 10, 2007

Well, I do think it was pretty clever and kinda funny. But it was still well deserving of the eye roll it got from me. Almost no one was likely to get it, and when you see the answer you're glad you didn't waste a lot of time on it.
auntiesisAus*
Aug 10, 2007

very funny, I loved it.Pun, Joke, call it whatever you want, it was still funny.
BikerDankAus*
Aug 10, 2007

My first thought was it was like other rebuses and I read it as Pee in Our Eye. I thought...nooooo! That can't be it!
I like the correct answer, would not have figured that one out.
funnygirl25Aus*
Aug 10, 2007

very clever!

I never would have gotten this

Aug 10, 2007

Ummm. It was cute I actually do agree with the others who said it was not a rebus.
But as a cute joke, it rocks!!!
DreamchaserAus*
Aug 10, 2007

that was funny, couldn't figure it out, but I loved it.

veddy good! i was stumped for a change
jabdrAus*
Aug 10, 2007


What fun! No one could ever expand the Rest In Peace phrase and get the answer - though we all started with the same idea. Good job!

Aug 10, 2007

I know that offensive language is not allowed on this site. What about names? (three above me)
2ndhandroseca*
Aug 10, 2007

THAT WAS GREAT
What a Chuckle.

I HAVE TO AGREE WITH ICANN? IS
IT!

THE NAME WITH "I SUCK" IN IT IS
ENOUGH TO STOP ME FROM READING THESE TEASERS !!!!!!

& I'M NO PRUDE THAT'S JUST RUDE! RUDE! RUDE!
jcann*us*
Aug 10, 2007

Thank you 2ndhandrose. But it's not just those first two words--what about the rest of it? I think it's absolutely vulgar. Who in the world would want to call himself/herself that?
jcann*us*
Aug 10, 2007

Sorry, 2ndhandrose--I just reread your comment and understand now what you are saying. I misread it the first time.

solarsistim321*us*
Aug 11, 2007

Kind of a joke. Great teaser!

Aug 23, 2010

That was hilarious...I was thinking along the lines of, "Rest Peace In," but I guess I was on the right track at least.

Kind of a groaner, but fun just the same.

I don't think anyone got this one. Bad teaser or much higher on the difficulty scale? should have been four not 2.5.

Yeah... or Rest in Pieces =x

Aug 04, 2013

Very difficult and funny I was thinking like Providence is in Rhode Island or something...yeah, not even close.
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 23, 2013

A little bit crazy, but I laughed when I saw the answer!
jaycr*us*
Aug 23, 2013

I'll give it one of these:
cutebugAus*
Aug 23, 2013

This should be a R.P.I. for editors. Very old and showing wear.
auntiesisAus*
Aug 23, 2013

This one still makes me laugh.
fuzzyface73
Aug 23, 2013

Huh. I thought it was easy. Rensellaer Polytechnic Institute (R.P.I) is my niece's alma mater. No?

Then I guess this was a shaggy dog rebus...
