A few mistakes in the body. Overlook that and you've got a very nice teaser.

Great teaser...5 out of 8 isn't bad......I didn't get 2,3, or 5.......ZThen again, I stopped watching FRIENDS and I didn't get Meryl Streep. ..Nice concept.

Good teaser..got them all except #4...fun
karenokupniakus*
Nov 27, 2005

This was a lot of fun. I just happened to know all of them, but it could have been a lot tougher depending on what stage of the celebs' 15 minutes we're in.
shawneeo*us*
Nov 27, 2005

Wow! Who's Paula Abdul? She's on American Idol (I do NOT watch that). She's an excellent dancer and made a series of commericals where she danced with images of old movie stars, great! I didn't get half of these, but, P Abdul aside, I deliberately try NOT to remember "stars" names and trivia, because I don't want them to have any space in my head, at all! LOL Good idea!
pawz73*
Nov 27, 2005

Clever teaser. Yeah, missed Meryl & Simon & needed the hint to get Ashton. Enjoyed this teaser more than any I've seen in awhile. Thanks.

Nov 27, 2005

Fun teaser!!! #5 and #8 were definitely the toughest!! "Mrs. Kramer"??? I was scratching my head trying to remember if "Kramer" even HAD a mother on Seinfeld!!! Boy, was I WAY off on that clue!! LOL
kimberlykayAus*
Nov 27, 2005

Good work on your teaser. It was quite easy, but fun! I got all of them correct.

To answer Mazza:
Paula Abdul is known mainly for her singing career. One of he most popular songs is Forever Your Girl. However, she was a dancer, choreographer, and a cheerleader for the Lakers at one point in time. She was also briefly married to Emelio Estevez who is the actor/son of Martin Sheen and brother of Charlie Sheen.

Very fun teaser. I got them all, but I think the hint gave them away. Still, it's a great teaser!

Very clever nd fun I've seen many goofy spell checker recommendations during the course of my writing career, but never thought of turning them into a teaser! Glad you did! That was great!!

Nov 28, 2005

I really like it. Had to see hint to get Simon. Most of us who read this teaser will now think of
Renee Zellweger as Renew Sewage every time we see her in a movie or on T.V.

I liked this one too.....Simon Cowell is an American Idol judge
jessjspieks*us*
Nov 29, 2005

So if Demi would have taken Ashton's last name, that would make her "Deli Cutter" Tooooooo funny. This was great

Well....for lorelle b.... i think she/ he is liying that he/she is related to Ashton. R U??? If so can you get his autograph for me??? How is he related to you?? Well... anyways great teaser. i loved it!!!
FulanitoGM*sv*
Dec 02, 2005

Very easy. I even figured out Meryl Streep after some thought. However, it was also a lot of fun. This one got a one-way ticket to my favorites list!

And listen, I'm all for expressing your dislike of teasers, but Maverick was just mean... At least give us some good reasons for not liking the teaser, man!

Nov 27, 2006

THE SECOND TIME AROUND, FOR ME, AND THIS IS EVEN LESS APPEALING THAN BEFORE.

I GUESS MY INITIAL REACTION AND RESPONSE WAS SUFFICIENTLY OFFENSIVE TO HAVE BEEN DELETED.

HOWEVER ONCE AGAIN I'LL STATE MY CASE, SUFFICE TO SAY, THIS WAS NO CHALLENGE.
OldChinaHand**
Nov 27, 2006

Hey, Signme, pay 'IT' no mind, just its daily case of Teaser Envy speaking.

Nice teaser, and have a nice B-day as well.

to easy.. and i didnt evan recognize three of them keep trying
vlermaAus**
Nov 27, 2006

Sounding the words out made it pretty easy and I liked it that I got them all. I use spell-check basically for my stupid typos. The old fingers don't hit the keys like they should. Nice job.

#8 got me, but i got the rest. Good work!

This is great! I got the 1st two while printing, the rest are coming to work with me. Great Idea!

Pretty good teaser. However, my first thought was - who the heck is Simon Cowell? Then I realized Simon Cowell != Moviestar...
breathesunshineAus*
Nov 27, 2006

Sounds like "Mercy Stripe" tripped up a lot of us!
Pizzazz2uAus*
Nov 27, 2006

You have to be old enough to know the *who they are* and this teaser is easy. But, it is fun seeing the outcome with a spell checker. Entertaining teaser!
auntiesisAus*
Nov 27, 2006

Too Cute for words. Didn't get #8 ' but the rest of them came to me. Really enjoyed this one.
RRAMMOHAN*in*
Nov 27, 2006

Got all except # 4. I thought the answers were simple!

Got`em all 1st go, loved these real good fun, thankyou. Can`t believe how many posters on here today!!

Nov 27, 2006

Well this was the second time I saw this teaser...but I still enjoyed it the first time...you know what they say-the first time is always the best.

Nov 27, 2006

yeah maverick. that was pretty lame. they are just brain teasers. hello.. they are supposed to be a little bit of fun?? if you're so disappointed why dont you quit being a kill joy and write your own? yes it was easy.. but there has to be a variety.
jabdrAus*
Nov 27, 2006

Hmmmm, and usually #5 is a lucky number for me. GREAT teaser. It passes my smile test
ThrashmeisterAus*
Nov 27, 2006

That was easy, but nevertheless, very fun.
junesun6789*us*
Nov 27, 2006

that was fun, thank you!
schmedley9*us*
Nov 27, 2006

I got them all but it was very creative. Great job
wordmama*
Nov 27, 2006

Very enjoyable! I got 6/8 the first go-round, then Demi and Renee with the hints.

As for Maverick, you make me want to curse! And puttumup, YOU have to try again! As we can see, most of the posters were well-rounded enough to recognize all the names. I do agree that one probably has to be over 40 to know Meryl Streep (which I most assuredly am!) As I've said before, 'something for everyone'. Kudos to the submitter!
vlermaAus**
Nov 30, 2006

I loved it. I got them pretty easily since if you say the names quite fast it just automatically sounds right and then the real words come out.
ThrashmeisterAus*
Dec 01, 2006

This was a great teaser, I loved it.

@jacstop, with the "new" celebrity name riddles: How are those challenging at all? You only changed/deleted one or two letters in each name...
QrystalAca*
Dec 12, 2006

I got all except.. perhaps my lack of hollywood culture got in the way...

3 and 8 - I kinda knew who they were, but couldn't quite remember their last names...

4 - I had no idea (don't know who he is either, except from the comments)

5 was madly spellcheck-hacked and unrecognizable; how hilarious!

In fact, this whole teaser was hilarious!! Very fun. Cheers!
Vigo95Aus*
May 29, 2007

i LOVED this!

i thought it was hilarious. i never thought about how many people's names would be.... 'incorrect' according to spell check!

FANTASTIC!
doeheadAus*
Nov 27, 2009

If anybody needed more than 15 seconds to get this one,they overdosed on turkey.
nikitafullmoonAca*
Nov 27, 2009

This was so much fun. Had me giggling as I solved it. "Summon Cowbell" indeed. It's actually quite appropriate. Or an old SNL reference.

And lmurray, haven't you been kicked off Braingle yet? Could I interest you in turning off your CAPS LOCK key so that at least when you're being pompous you're not also yelling at the author? Cheers.

Still funny after all this time. Still didn't get #8.

Babe*
Nov 27, 2012

I can't imagine how anyone got the last one. It did not make sense to me. The rest were easy!
lukasiwicz*
Nov 27, 2012

Got 'em, and didn't need the hint, though the Renee Zellweger one had me scratching my head for a couple of seconds. Then I plugged these names into an e-mail and had my AOL spell-checker vet them. The only transformation I got that matched any of the ones in this teaser was Cowbell from Cowell. I kinda doubt that any legitimate spell-checker produced the names in the Teaser, and I suspect that the Teaser's author simply made them up out of whole cloth Boo, hiss.
roylazaAil*
Nov 27, 2012

Very funny, I got all but 2
jaycr*us*
Nov 27, 2012

Got them all except # 8
cutebugAus*
Nov 27, 2012

They do not come any easier,including #8 which seemed to puzzle some viewers. . Hello DOEHEAD, wherever you are.
kitty-cattus*
Nov 27, 2012

I got 2 out of all of them. I'm awful with celebrity names, don't care what's going on in Hollywood. But it was a good theme, nice job!
gaylewolfAus*
Nov 27, 2012

Oh, I LOVE the comments here!
And, cutebug, don't worry about Doehead - he or she left in a huff a while back because he or she was tired of all the reruns and people kept picking on him or her because of his or her comments.
Once you got to know him or her, he or she wasn't really that bad!
Have a great day, everyone!!
