Great teaser, but the eye surgery you're referring to is probably "Lasik" with a "k"... "Lasix" with an "x" is a drug used to rid the body of excess fluid.

Other than that, though, it's a great teaser.

Lasix is a trade name for Lasik surgery. I got literature from them when I had mine done (by another surgeon).

What?? I totally did not get it. I quess I did not realize you could use only part of the word.

Really enjoyed this one. I got the right answer, but didn't connect on the "numbers" in the words. Very clever.

I got totally lost on this one.

I guess I just don't have the patience for thist ype of teaser. It appears to be an answer and I just don't like to look long enough to figure it out. Oh well! Well done!

"Play Date" is the only item in the Group B with two syllables, just like all the items in Group A. I never even noticed the clever title, or got close to the embedded numbers, because I was so sure that I had it by counting syllables! (I might change "Play Date" to something with three or more syllables, just to remove ambiguity.)

Good teaser!

This is one Teriffic Teaser !!

I didn't get it but loved it when
I saw your answer

Don't get how play date is 2
SYLLABLES.? Isn't a syllablepart of one word, like "unbelievable"
like Your Teaser
could be broken into syllables. PLAY DATE is just 2 wds.?

Anyhoo , LOVED IT - KEEP WRITING MORE

Oct 04, 2007

After I recognized that all of Group A were two syllables, I picked PLAY DATE as the answer... didn't even notice those numbers thrown in there.

Great teaser!

I missed the answer by a mile. Great teaser. Very cleverly written. My hat is off to you. Thanks.

I would have never gotten this one right. I think I fried my brain cells on the Quiz. I will admit. Once you showed them to me, I went :duh:

ARGH! The hint was the end of my trying. I obviously have no logic so I knew I'd never get it. Great teaser Very, very clever.

Well done - can't believe you got me ... I've submitted a similar one and still missed this. Mondays...bah!

Oct 04, 2010

I also chose "play date" because it contains 2 syllables - as does "Lasix" (which should be "Lasik") and even your hint word "logic". Interesting Teaser.

Well done!

WTTF, the answer is in the Title. I enjoyed this Teaser, but to answer it correctly wasn't, going to happen. Who Thought This Funny?

I got this one but I'm embarrassed to say how long it took me to find "two" in artwork even after knowing the pattern.

I should have had one more cup of coffee. My "braingle" was not working this a.m.

Greight one.

Interesting that only one or two people said they got it, yet the "difficulty" rating is only 2.6. Why the disconnect?
