the only thing is 'at wits end' which would be s...but if you get every other letter it makes sense...

Nice teaser - ii liked it - but u need to put at wit en - not wit's - as the end of wit's is an s - t great teser well done!!

For those complaining about "at wit's end":

It is written just fine. if someone said "What are the letters in Scott's name?" you would say "S-C-O-T-T"
Likewise, "wit's end" is the same as saying "end of wit" which, coincdentally is "T"

I figured it was a run-on sentence and left it at that.

Great teaser, tough enough, it should be obscure or some would complain too easy. Dumbbell wrote it?

Best one I've seen for a while. I wouldn't have got it in a million years, was on the wrong tack.

Nice one!

Maybe it's me,but I thought this was bad.

I didn't really care for this teaser either.

I really liked this one!

This is a really good teaser, must have taken a lot of thought to get it just right. Dumbell is no dumbell when it comes to making up language teasers. I'd like to see more of these.

Very clever but too much before 2nd cup of coffee

I DON'T LIKE THESE, BUT IT WAS WELL WRITTEN. MY HAT'S OFF TO YOU.

I love knowing that the only people that gripe about this teaser are most likely the folks that could not solve it! I couldn't either! It was very clever though! Thanks for the challenge!

I am the Dumbell on this one! It was BRILLIANT! Never even came close & really tried. This is one of the best I've personally seen. LOVED IT. Didn't get it

By the way (I saw no errrors!)
GREAT JOB.

i murray liked it.
What else could you ask for. I
realize now that I'm not as quick
as him and his comments are just candid!
Again Good 4U Dumbell

Wow! This teaser was incredibly clever Once explained, it was pure delight in it's simplicity. Great job Dumbell (or Smartbell)
FatHeadAus*

Wow, talk about obscure.

it was ok i didnt really get it but.. it was really good once i saw the answer good one!!
RerepeteAca*
Aug 11, 2007

I was totally off base on this one. I was breaking apart the sentence all wrong. Great teaser, although I too thought the at wit's end was a bit weaker than the rest of the teaser

Most often I'm looking for meaning or comprehension of the words in the teaser. These phrases all had to do with "positions". I should have have known to go one step further with the teaser difficulty marker showing exceptional difficulty. NICE!
mondayschild59Aus*

Once I new what the answer was, I knew how to figure it out. That is to say, I got it wrong
But it was a very good teaser. Don't pay any attention to the ones that complain hon. At least you are posting teasers. Thanks again.

Monday~

I wish I had gotten the point of the positions; I would have enjoyed figuring it out! I hope I get another chance to do a similar one some time!!

Aug 11, 2007

oh, beautiful. very, very nicely done. forget the gripers. i completely didn't get it. and then i saw the answer and was like "wow. that's smart." you should change your name. but. one little point: "beginning of the end". i thought that the beginning of the end was the beginning of "the end", and therefore "T" not "E".

i still loved it.
breathesunshineAus*
Aug 11, 2007

I didn't get it but once I saw the answer, thought it was an awesome puzzle. good work!!!
Candygirl415Aus*
Aug 11, 2007

I LOVED IT!!!! Could not Do anything like it! Keep em coming!!!
isis528Aus*
Aug 13, 2007

Great teaser. I didn't figure it out even with the hint. After looking at the answer I smiled. If I can't figure out a teaser in 24 hours, or get it wrong I rate it "hard." like this one. Still loved it.

Very, Very good!
BikerDankAus*
Aug 13, 2007

Wow, waaaay too much thinking required for this one! Reminds me of passing notes in high school in a code only you and your friends could figure out.

speedqueenkmwAus*
Aug 14, 2007

I agree with BikerDank-seems you couldn't solve this without knowing some sort of code. Never saw this type before so maybe I'll do better next time.

Very cleverly made, love it

This was a clever teaser and I would have liked trying to solve it if I could have figured it out! Happy Monday friends!
doeheadAus*
Nov 07, 2011

AWOR. I still don't like this one, I thought it was poorly written and very confusing.
phyllisa*us*
Nov 07, 2011

Great teaser, isn't this called an anagram?
wordmama*
Nov 07, 2011

I don't believe so, phyllisa; anagrams are simply words that, when their letters are rearranged, spell another word i.e. star, rats; part, trap; era, ear, are; eat, ate, tea; etc. Am I right, guys?
Chobuck*
Nov 07, 2011

Way too obscure, especially for a Monday.
lukasiwicz*
Nov 07, 2011

Yes, Wordmama, you are right, ABSOLUTELY.
auntiesisAus*
Nov 07, 2011

I didn't get it at all. Even the hint didn't help me this time.
MikeGus*
Nov 07, 2011

Whoa. That was cool. I was thinking it might be "Time", since each of the distinct phrases included words like midday, second, beginning, early, end... Not quite, I guess.
