I'm in a zoo
But not in a jungle
I rarely come in pairs
But I'm in every puzzle

Some think I'm in a xylophone
But, I most certainly am not
You don't see me with a loan
But very strangely in a zealot

I'm in the magical prison of Azkaban
Well, can't you see?
I'm in the buzz of a fan
But, my oh my what could I be?


Hint

What does xylophone sound like it should start with?
Hide



What Next?

I knew that Azkaban had something to do with Harry Potter but how was I to know that that had nothing to do with the answer until I read the hint?
emmh**
Jan 26, 2006

Good teaser and I got it - yeah!
Philip Pullman's books - especially the trilogy "His Dark Materials" are far, far better than Harry Potter. Try 'em.

shawneeo*us*
Jan 26, 2006

I got it, I got it, I got it!!!

I thought it was pretty easy, but it is very well written! I thought the hint just made it way too easy, but there are those who didn't get it so maybe not.

Good job, Thanks!
jabdrAus*
Jan 26, 2006

This was a head slapper for me. I tried to make it way too hard and felt very silly when I read the answer. Great job & congrats!

Wow! My elementary education really shined on this one. I saw xlophone and thought of the alphabet books.
iteachkidsAus*
Jan 26, 2006

I GOT it! Right away!!!
After reading the comments, I have a new thought about these. Do we sometimes think TOO HARD??? I think so!
This was clever, lotsa fun, made me feel smart, and is now a Fave!

FulanitoGM*sv*
Jan 26, 2006

Nicely written, but I think you gave too much away. One verse, two tops, and I think the difficulty would have been just right. As it was, I got it on the first read-through by the second verse. The third verse and the hint just confirmed it.

I know it sounds like I'm bragging, but really I'm not. It's the truth. In fact, I'll be the first to admit when I get a teaser wrong or that I didn't even try. But I honestly think too much was given on this teaser. Just my opinion... no offense intended.
mrticklesAus*
Jan 26, 2006

FulanitoGM is right.
smosaka*
Jan 26, 2006

You do sound a little braggy, but I'm probably just bitter because I was guessing "captivity" or something.

I love it took a few seconds but then it just fell in place.
wizofaus*au*
Jan 26, 2006

Good, but agree - first verse was quite enough (actually the first two lines is almost enough).
Not sure that I would say z rarely comes in pairs though.
wizkid**
Jan 26, 2006

That was cute. I loved it

Jan 26, 2006

baseball_enzo, judging by your comment, I'm not surprised you "didn't get it"

Evolni, cute teaser, a little too easy but it was fun.
scubastevezi926
Jan 26, 2006

This is undoubtedly the worst teaser I have ever seen. I like to think of myself as a very positive person, but it is difficult to be positive when you read something like that.
azbee123*us*
Jan 26, 2006

this was such a cute teaser!!!

and exuse me... scubasteve... could you be any more mean. if you dont have anything nice to say just dont say it... and this was such a good poem... maybe you should read it again... because if you look up at all the other comments... its seems like a lot of people LIKE this teaser. There is no excuse for you to be so mean and unpleasant. OMG!

sorry everybody... i needed to yell at him. lol

Quite easy to figure out, but pretty well written.

Good Job!
lmurray*cn*
Jan 26, 2007

DEFINITELY EASY, MAINLY BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY CLUES.

WHY ARE THERE SO SO MANY RERUNS?

I WOULD THINK THERE WERE MORE THAT 365 TEASERS. WE KEEP SEEING RERUNS ALMOST ANNUALLY.

NEW OR AT LEAST LESS FREQUENT RERUNS PLEASE.
lmurray*cn*
Jan 26, 2007

SCUBASTEVE'S COMMENT IS JUST A COMMENT, NOT A STATEMENT OF FACT, MERELY HIS OPINION.

IT'S O.K. TO NOT LIKE SOMETHING AND TO SAY SO.

(THAT'S "MY" OPINION)

Good teaser, Well written. Well done!

It was a cute teaser. I did think it was on the easy side but it is better than I could come up with. I liked it.

Very EZ ...and good because of the cute poem.
bradon182001*us*
Jan 26, 2007

I was thrown off by the first line, thinking it was an animal we were trying to figure out. Even after I read the hint I said Z, but it can't be a zebra. How dumb of me!!
phyllisa*us*

This is a great teaser. give us another one

Thank you so much for this teaser. I got it right away but I enjoyed the rest of the puzzle
QrystalAca*
Jan 26, 2007

Cute teaser, very good for your first one!

I will say it just because nobody else has:
it was definitely E-Zeeee! (Although I do pronounce the letter as 'Zed'.)

Anyways, I am in the boat with soonwillitend: xylophone gave it away for me. Lots of things to think about regarding the letter 'z'! And for coming in pairs... what about pizzazz?
ShikamaruAus*
Jan 26, 2007

good but the hint gave it away completely. made it just a little to obvious.
Musikman212*ca*
Jan 26, 2007

It said rarely in pairs Qrystal, not never. I thought it was a good job, especially for a first try.

that was really good for ur first teaser i know what u guys r saying sometimes u over think these. i thought it would be something but an animal i liked it though
breathesunshineAus*
Jan 26, 2007

When I read the hint I was shaking my head. It was so obvious and yet I didn't get it until I read the hint! Good one!
yongrenjieAmy*
Jan 26, 2007

good riddle on the first try! actually there are many riddles like this, looking for a particular letter, so i got this on my first try.

Jan 26, 2007

and good rhyming, too!

As a xylophone and marimba player, I caught on as soon as I read that part of the hint. I'm going to try it on my students at school. Very well written!

This was one good teaser. I totally got lost when Harry Potter was mentioned, but I thought this was one of the best teasers on the site!!!

After the first two lines I thought it was an animal, but after the second too lines I knew the answer.

I thought the rhyme was very cute

I liked it , but it was quite easy to figure out if you read it over a couple of times. That's okay! I like easy!
