Nice one! Used the clue. Still didn't get it. Maybe I'm a little dumb, but I had to rate it hard.

you might want to put volume level then in () write (sound) because I thought it was like an encyclopedia. Other than that I thought it was great. I don't have enough points to edit or w/e.

Thanks Poseidon and thanks for your thoughts. I think for the moment I am still happy with it as it is.

very cute! well done!!!

HELP! What is Imurray saying?? What does "BUCUO" mean??

I didn't get the answer, btw.

i got zilch on this one. when i saw the answer, it was plain as day.
good teaser, lots of thought went into it. great great job.

i think murray is saying that he didn't get it. but felt he had to put something down.

I liked this one, very clever

This is for Marschie. I looked up BUCUO. Its a form of chinese & doesn't run through basic translator software. Used in slang to mean "not bad", but translates more accurately to "no fault" or "no wrong" - hope this helps!

My brain just didn't function on this one!! Had fun trying, though.
nu_rob_roy*sx*
Aug 26, 2006

Why is Imurray still allowed to be here trashing all of these teasers???

This was a strange teaser for me, I got action and words, but that's all. I guess I getting old...nay, just too sober. Fine teaser dsquared.
Badger*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Got it, but how about: "My kids were playing very loudly while I was quietly trying to look something up in the dictionary"? Guess you'd have to be here. Very cute teaser! Thanks! (5)
builderus*
Aug 26, 2006

OCH volume shows that actions are louder than words. We needed to add speaks ourselves.
Good teaser, it didn't "click" for me.
shawneeo*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Well, I got it, I got it, I got it!!! So, of course I have nothing negative to say now.

To nurob, I think its OK to leave lmurray here and just delete the really offensive ones, because then we all get a chance to kick his butt... AND, he deserves it! LOL!
bradon182001*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Never would have fitured it out in a million years. Still not sure I get it.This was a tricky one.
bradon182001*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Sorry for the typo. Never would have figured it out is what I meant to say.

This saying is an old one, my parents taught me this while I was growing up. And here I am, a middle aged young man. BTW, the teaser was superb! Once you truly learn this expression, it makes you wonder about other people.
iteachkidsAus*
Aug 26, 2006

Yayyy! I got it, too ... but not without the hint first. ThanxaMILLION, DSquared, for waking up my brain today!
NuRob and shawneeo - I don't even know how offended to be by lmurray's Chinese word. Maybe it is really BAD. I think I'll click it out of principal and past history.

Atheletes high?? Readers low????
Shows how far off I was. Very clever!

I didn't get this one even after the hint. That doesn't mean that I don't like it though! I think this was great!

Never saw that one before. Original, and took some time to figure out. Great job.

wow...got me feelin a little slow here D...great job...
(user deleted)
Aug 26, 2006

if anyone cares, 'bucuo' literally means 'not wrong', which basically means 'not bad'.



yeah .. i didn't get this one, but my mind isn't on today.

Just when I thought I had it figured out I read the answer. Wrong! Great teraser and nice job!
dsquared*nz*
Aug 28, 2006

Wow, thanks so much for all the comments. I'm guessing from the deluge of 'new comments' in my inbox that this was possibly teaser of the day a couple of days ago? I'm pleased that it was enjoyable for most. I'll have to write some more some day soon.
QrystalAca*
Aug 29, 2006

Yup, it was teaser of the day for August 26th ...

and it GOT me. I might have to accept that rebuses are not my thing. I was completely stumped. I didn't even have a guess. The hint compounded my confusion.

To others in my boat: let's just cast again, and see what random teaser we fish out next!

Anyways, I have heard the phrase before, it just didn't come to mind at all while working on this. My fault, not yours!
dsquared*nz*

Thanks Qrystal

Excellent! I got it fairly quickly, my brain must be in gear this morning. Must have been the insanity wings I ate last night

This was a great rebus. I haven't seen one along these lines before, which is impressive for a rebus, where it seems everything has been done.

I REALLY LOVED THIS AND IT IS SO TRUE.
craniacAus*
Aug 27, 2009

Nifty! It came to me in a blinding flash. Or was it a quiet whisper?
crazy10manAus*
Aug 27, 2009

It was a good try, but maybe volume could've been replaced with a synonym for speak? And that hint . . .

Sure kept me guessing though!
doeheadAus*
Aug 27, 2009

Good one, but words can create action.
auntiesisAus*
Aug 27, 2009

I didn't get it. It is a good one too. Maybe next time.

Oh, that is so GOOD! I got it right away. Very clever!
Thanks!

I too thought volume had something to do with books and could not figure that one out. Even though it means volume loud or soft I agree it is a stretch for speaking. Oh well glad you posted it keeps on teaching me about these kind if teasers.
JQPublic*

Easy but good.

Volume got me to, but I liked it a lot.

I LOVED that one!!! It sure gave me a good laugh! Thanks!
