Great one... except I didn't get Lord Mayor or Morning Glory.

Proud to call the Beaver State my home!

"ORDINARY"

VERY COMMON INFORMATION. STEP IT UP A NOTCH NEXT TIME

I think IMURRAY is trying to upgrade the quality of these teasers. Most people accuse him of being negative ...and they're wrong. I got half of these two-word answers without much thought and would have gotten three more with only a teeny bit of searching. The only one I might never get was Morning Glory. Give IMURRAY some slack.

Nicely difficult, didn't get the state (I'm english, so that doesn't count anyway) & morning glory.

Thank you xx

I could get 'Morning Glory' but the rest were fun. Good way to start a day.

And imu, as for "ORDINARY", where, as everyone keeps wondering, at 295 are "YOUR" genius challengers.

Very well done. A bit easy, but lots of fun. Nice job. Thanks.

IMURRAY, just enjoy the day and that you are able to THINK at all. You're too hard on these people. Sometimes, one hides ones deficiencies under the cloak of criticism. Is this you?

Darn! Missed Morning Glory. I don't suppose Orange Orchid works, does it? Fun teaser. THANKS FOR SUBMITTING!

"Lord Mayor" took a couple of minutes. I'm a Yank who had to think a bit as to which one is the "Beaver State".

Enjoyed it!
bradon182001*us*
Oct 03, 2006

I must admit I thought this was easy, but also have to admit I didn't get them all. That's what this site is all about -- learning. Mission accomplished.
rhmaustin*us*
Oct 03, 2006

Don't care what "Immuray" says -- I liked it.
rhmaustin*us*
Oct 03, 2006

That should be "Imurray" -- sorry.
bestgirl*
Oct 03, 2006

What's wrong with wanting a teaser to be more of a challenge. Imurray was right--this was ordinary. No thinking involved, you just knew them or not. Is this negative??? Why???
vlermaAus*
Oct 03, 2006

Good oone Fishmed, didn't get Lord Mayor. Ilove the idea that you tried to include words that would be to familiar to people all over, such as England and North Korea as etc. Nice job Fish, More please?

Oct 03, 2006

well I didn't like that one very much because I didn't get the lion one. Oh well I better go watch Barney while my mom changes my diaper. Oh yeah I love the brain teaser but next time do something with Barney in it.l. I love that purple and green fela. He is so adorable. Well I am missing Barney gtg.

Remember, everyone! These are just comments! lmurray is allowed to make his comment, negative or not, as much as most everyone else making their comments, postive or neutral. The teaser was relaxing and I thought it was quick fun! WTG, fish.

I LOVE YOU YOU LOVE ME, WHERE A HAPPY FAMILY, WITH A GREAT BIG HUG AND A KISS FROM ME TO YOU, WON'T YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME TOOOOOOOOO. Iam in love with Barney, especially when he goes in that manly tree house of his. I thiink BJ is hot too. Well my mom needs to change my diaper. Bye. And rember I LOVE YOU!!!

Didnt know about Beaver State (not being an American) and couldnt get Morning Glory, but got all the rest quite easily! An interesting compilation.
Those who want 'more challenging' teasers need to remember that this site is for people of varying abilities, spread all over the world, and with different amount of time to spend. Anyone who finds a particular teaser too simple (or too difficult) for him, is free to rate that teaser in the appropriate category. Comments with a view to improving future teasers should be welcome, if they are worded carefully.
I welcome this type of teaser, however easy or hard it may be to some readers. Thanks.

This teaser was just perfect I needed some simpler teasers this morning And Some fit that discription Yet I always like to learn,and some things about other countries, our authors, well I learned new things So I say , keep these teasers coming I liked it. Thx.

Oct 03, 2006

Brilliantly said, RRAMMOHAN, and DITTO.
I was struck by Fish's ability to find all the 2-word answers, with "o-r" in both of them. That had to take some research!
Thanks, Fish!!!

I got all of them except the simplest one: Corner Store!

They don't all have to be ridiculously difficult, ya know. I really enjoyed this one-didn't get Lord Mayor. fun

i liked this one ok but ive seen better i think the directions should be more claer because i didnt get how to do it for a while but i still liked it
bhssoccer23Aus*
Oct 03, 2006

I didn't get Lord Mayor and morning glory. Toughies. Good job, though, it was very entertaining.
fishmedAus*
Oct 03, 2006

I am glad that those who like it, did so. There is another one like this, as you note this is #2. Also, sometimes, you have to put in some easier ones as there will be people who will get upset when there are only difficult ones. I have some that are at both ends. Keep looking and have fun.

Oct 03, 2006

This was not the hardest one. I only got a few though. It was still a very good teaser. Nothing ordinary about it . have a great day!
jabdrAus*

Drat. I never looked at the hint and it may have helped me get #1.Enjoyed this one.

This was an easy teaser. I liked it anyway. especially when it's early in the morn and I'm half asleep! P.S. Who the heck is Barney???

LOL! OK, IMURRAY, I AM HEREWITH ACKNOWLEDGING YOU AS OUR OFFICIAL CRITIQUER! BTW...DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE TEASERS? YOU KNOW, REALLY CHALLENGING ONES? LIST EM FOR ME?
TKS

Nice one! I had fun with this.

Got #3, #5, and #8 right away.

The hint helped me get #4, #6, and #7. Awesome hint!

Didn't get #1 or #2, though I was close on #2 .. first thought was Oregon, but then I thought it was probably a two-word city... so I was stuck thinking "Port Something". Too bad I forgot my thought of Oregon when I looked at the hint.... darn!

*cheers*

Fun, thanks. Sometimes I only have time for a few quick thoughts in the morning!! and a short snappy Teaser is ideal. Other times I like to spend longer. But that's me - not the author! You can always search for more of a challenge if you like. Great variety, everyone - keep it up!

Really good one, kind of easy, but some made me think. I would like to see some more like this one.

For #8 I put corner grocery. An old fadshioned term, and I am sure it counts as right. It was an easy one, ,but fun to do and like I said before,..."I like easy!"
fishmedAus*
Oct 03, 2012

Corner Grocery would not work as each word was to have 'or' and grocery has 'ro', so does not work, but I am glad you liked it. Thanks.

This easy teaser is 7 years old and FISHMED is still checking comments. He must live on the computer. I'm sure he needs to get a better life!!!

I have a fun life, a job, 5 kids, a lovely wife and 7 pets. I am also an editor & moderator here so I have to get on at least once every day or so to check on things. Believe me, my life is full. Glad you guys liked it.
