i would have never figured that out!! i thought it might have something to do with countries because of the Germane, but i couldn't figure out how it had anything to do with the other words. great job!

Nov 26, 2005

Wow, that was very good and very difficult!!!! I wonder if I ever would have solved that one. You peeps who got it so fast, goodygoody for you!!!! Re: racial slur: sometimes it's not that, it's just what's in YOUR head. I wouldn't go looking for them, life is hard enough. Maybe the person never thought of that double meaning for chink, never even heard it!!!!! Now see, that was a well written teaser that didnt have to be incorrect to be very hard for most of us!!!!!!!!

I'm just not very good at teasers, but I keep trying. This was a really good 1; I should have seen this. I hope that as I continue with Braingle I will get better; I think that it's just a matter of conditioning the mind to look for the obvious & the not so obvious.

very well done. i can see how some people interpreted that as a racial slur, but people need to remember that "chink" is also a legitimate word!

Rugbys_girl, either get off that politically correct high-horse of yours, or at least stop using racial slurs, yourself. You cannot use ANY of the followings words from now on, because all items in this list are racial slurs. And maybe you should research a few hundred more, just to make sure that you are politically correct. Or, is it okay to use them if you are ignorant of their political incorrectness? Check with the PC police on that one, please.

O-Rod*
Nov 26, 2005

First off I thought the teaser was great. Very creative! Secondly, to whoever came up with it, don't pay any attention to the people on here that have mentally manipulated part of it to mean a racial slur. That's their own fault! :

Was that language really necessary? I think you could have gotten your point across without all of that...

Anyway, I really liked the teaser.

First and foremost let me set the record straight here guys. Racism predates racial slurs so this social construction is real even if you aren't "creating" the atmosphere for it to flourish. Secondly, we've wasted far too many words on this. Mav and Mogur, come on guys you aren't receiving awards for your comments b/c they are out of place. Truth of the matter is that phyllis could have chosen another letter at the end of Chin. Not to take anything away from the teaser b/c it was pretty decent. However, there are some words that strike a chord b/c as I stated earlier - this ideology has been around for a long time. When some people are faced with the reality of their actions, they grab the offensive to mask their own shortcomings. When we understand our world better, then and only then can we coexist.

While chink has more than one meaning, to associate it with the word China is really horrendous - it's hard to see chink's non-racial meaning in this case. I can't believe that this got approved. I'm really offended. I don't think racial slurs are "family friendly".

Hooray! And thanks to Jake for fixing this teaser.

Now no more upset.

Required some tough brainwaves, but it finally came to me. Good one.
kwelchansAus*
Nov 26, 2008

Looking at the previous comments, I still don't see where the racial slur is. I think it has something to do with someone using the word "chink", but that comment came AFTER the comment about the racial slur. Anyone have any ideas?

Excellent teaser. I didn't get it, may have if I'd have taken an hour or so and worked on it, but I didn't, so....Thanks for posting.
