What was the point of the name Pibbles? I thought there was going to be some trick to do with that

I agree - a groaner - and too easy - but I like an easy one now and then

I don't care for riddles like this because there could be multiple plausible solutions. The guy named his horse after his lady. The guy is a grocer and sold the apples to her at a cheap price to express his love, etc

Easy... but cute!

A VERY GOOD ONE! KEEP 'EM COMING!

Very easy. Why Pibbles ? Why not. I think the name probably distracts people from the simplicity of the teaser. Enjoyed the comments as much as the teaser.

You didn't trick me with the Pibbles distraction. I'm getting better at these!

Waste of time, too easy.
FatHeadAus*
Oct 22, 2008

The point of "Pibbles" is to trick you!

Anyway, I thought this was more a joke or riddle than a trick teaser.

HAHAHHAA loved it! And I think Pibbles is supposed to make you think of a horse.

I think that that would be more of a joke. But whatever, it good!

Yes it was easy, but cute! I liked it - thank you! Hi and happy weekend, friends!

Yeah, yeah, it was easy. But big deal. I thought it was still funny.

So it was easy. There is no pleasing a lot of people on here. "Too easy" "Too hard" "didn't like the subject matter".
I personally thought it was funny, should have been in the riddle category not trick but was still cute.

The apple a day didn't work. The doctor thought Pibbles was a peach, and he loved peaches. G & S have a great day.

I loved that it was easy and funny!

Doehead, loved your comment. Yours too, HABS and Wordmama - most people are in a good, happy, positive mood today!! Nice to see it!
auntiesisAus*
Oct 22, 2011

Ditto Gaylewolf,and I especially liked doehead's comment. Go doe.
I also thought it was a joke, not a trick.

Still think this was more of riddle than a trick teaser, but still made me smile.

Yeah... yeah... I got that one again... Putting together 7 apples (one per day), and thinking about the doctor made me remember the saying.
Nice one. Keep 'em coming
