hahaha, oh, i found this so funny. mogmatt, its not so much a teaser, i think, as it is a joke. i love this one.
May 10, 2002

I really liked this one!! I guested them all correctly (I've heard the one about the elephant and the zebra before)
May 11, 2002

this is going to sound stupid BUT IT'S THE TRUTH!!!!!!!
When i clicked on this teaser nothing came up and so I thought someone had somewho gotten away with putting nothing up. And yes, it's a joke remake. But hey, it's a good joke.

Jun 12, 2002

This doesn't specify exactly what you're supposed to do - say you figure out question 2. How would you know that the answer had anything to do with the answer in question 3? You don't explain anything.
Jun 13, 2002

So Roserox That's Half The Fun Of This Joke. Well Done Mogmatt. This Really Made Me Laugh!

Good one.
Nov 06, 2003

This teaser was easy. I have heard it before, but still, good teaser!
Nov 06, 2003

Drunky you must be drunk. You got it in your email because it was the teaser of the day. Derrrrrrrr!

Dec 28, 2003

I am very sure I saw this teaser before.
Jan 12, 2004

Apr 11, 2004

I've heard it before so I knew the answer
May 18, 2004

i know this from when i was little i always say it with an elephant and a giraffe though, hmmmm. the kids i babysit for didnt get it
Jun 12, 2004

Very good. i haven't heard of if before but a lot of comments it's old. It's good to hear the old as new again.
Jun 12, 2004

That was soooo good!! I loved it! great job! I didn't really understand it, but when I read the answer, I got it! very funny!
Jun 12, 2004

I'm putting it on my fave list!
Jun 12, 2004

The problem is that about 9 out of every 10 people should know this. Its very common teaser. Its known as the "IQ test"
Jul 14, 2004

Oldie but Goodie.
(user deleted)
Aug 09, 2004

Easy but xtremely fun
Sep 13, 2004

That was so easy.
Jan 21, 2005

I\'ve heard the first two before, but I completely forgot and didn\'t get it. Isn\'t that terrible? But the answer is halarious. I\'m putting this on my fave list.
Mar 18, 2005

I loved this teaser! Never would have guessed it.
May 02, 2005

That was really cool, and hilarious. I'm going to see your other teasers.
May 21, 2005

May 23, 2005

Yeah, this one was emailed around quite a few years ago based off a scientific study comparing kindergarteners' answers and adults' answers, but since you're the first to copy it onto Braingle, I'll give you some credit. I've always loved this one.
Jun 12, 2005

Ugh. I've heard this so many times; one more and it will be the hundredth time.
Well.. still an OK one.
Jun 12, 2005

I loved this! Guess I've been out of the joke loop...this is the first time I've seen this May I use this as a fun quiz for my students? I'm saving this one...just great! Thanks...
Jun 12, 2005

I loved this! Guess I've been out of the joke loop...this is the first time I've seen this May I use this as a fun quiz for my students? I'm saving this one...just great! Thanks...
Jun 12, 2005

no point and not worthy
Jun 12, 2005

Jun 12, 2005

I have never heard this before! Very funny! i felt a bit silly that I did not get it! I will share it with my kids. Thanks
Jun 12, 2005

it's been going around in e-mail for awhile... good tho...
Jun 12, 2005

This will be the second going on my favorites list. Even though it isn't your original teaser, It still made me laugh. I saw it before though, so it was no challenge. Well done.
Jun 12, 2005

I've heard that many times, but it's still good
Jun 12, 2005

Interesting logic. I enjoyed it.
Jun 12, 2005

I acctually just got this one in an email.
Still funny though.
Jun 12, 2005

Good Teaser, very funny
Jun 12, 2005

i also got something like this in an e-mail, but it's till really funny!
Jun 12, 2005

yeah me too
Jun 12, 2005

OMG . . . . that's so old
Jun 12, 2005

I found this one to be a bit of a groaner, but I'm in the minority I see! I found it to be more child-minded, but that's ok. It obviously put smiles on lots of faces, just not mine.
Jun 12, 2005

After I read the hint I was a-okay. I got them all right. That was a good one. Keep it up.
(user deleted)
Jun 12, 2005

That isn't a brain teaser or a riddle. it's a bad joke.
Jun 12, 2005

this is funny, but why do they keep showing old ones. Are there not any from 2005?????
(user deleted)
Jun 12, 2005

This is Very good It stumped a lot of my friends! It also stumped me! I do say good one
Jun 12, 2005

It's great, but I've seen it quite a bit before. ;P
Jun 12, 2005

ive heard this joke a few times before, but it's a good one for no one who has heard it before
Jun 12, 2005

That was a great teaser!
I was stumped for a while. I had originally thought about a bridge.
Jun 12, 2005

that is SOOOOOO cute!!! i luv it!! there should b more like this 1 def!
Jun 12, 2005

Jun 14, 2005

i have heard this soooooooooooooo many times and i have lost my intrest of its funnyness it would have been great if i hadnt heard it so many times
Jun 14, 2005

I have heard this before, but at least I got all of the answers!!
Jun 14, 2005

dis is da losr amng v losrs
Jun 14, 2005

I've deffinately heard this one before...basically a cliche.
Jun 27, 2005

I've heard this before. Great teaser. Its not lame. NO! Definately not lame .
Jul 10, 2005

so not lame it is going into my faves
Jul 17, 2005

Its a very famose teaser, i've heard it hundreds of times so it was EASY!!!!!
Aug 16, 2005

LOL! Good job, and very funny!
Oct 10, 2005

i really liked this one-cute.thanks
Oct 17, 2005

It makes more sense with a giraffe because people think you have to fold it.
Nov 26, 2005

As this is my first teaser in this category i found it extremely hard. but O WELL. i smiled when i read the answer.
Jun 12, 2006

Jun 12, 2006

I've heard this one a couple times before, but it sure is funny!
Jun 12, 2006

I've never heard any of that joke before, so of course I had no clue. Very funny!
Jun 12, 2006

Got the first two answers right off the bat, but the last two got me! I felt ... like DUH!!!
Jun 12, 2006

Apparently this is the third time this teaser has made "teaser of the day". Isn't it a bad idea to use a joke as TOTD, as it might encourage more people to submit jokes as teasers?
Jun 12, 2006

Jun 12, 2006

Very old but good
Jun 12, 2006

Funny joke. I think we need more word squares, though. Just kidding imurray! Certainly more actual brain teasers...
Jun 12, 2006

loved the teaser i have never heard it before . it was great and i got the answers the first one to go on my list. it was great please make more
Jun 12, 2006

There's a thin line between a joke and a teaser. Isn't Wocka for jokes?
It's just as funny here as there.
Jun 12, 2006

Yesterday a dumb joke; today another; what's for tomorrow, the chicken?
Jun 12, 2006

LOL. loved it.
Jun 12, 2006

I've never heard this one before, but I do not consider it a teaser. It's a joke and you either know the answer or you don't.How do you know the answer? You have heard the joke before. Sorry, but I agree, this is not the forum for jokes.
Jun 12, 2006

heard it before but still quite funny.
Jun 12, 2006

I heard this one, too. And as one of you said, with an elephant and a GIRRAFE instead.
Jun 12, 2006

Too funny! Loved it!
Jun 12, 2006

I like jokes, but not when I'm expecting a teaser... Is there a website for jokes?
Jun 12, 2006

I'm sorry to have to sound so negative, but I was hoping this would have been a brain teaser and NOT a joke. Perhaps the Webmaster could add a Joke Forum to this Website. Clearly this was an 'old' joke...I'm waiting for a 'chicken crossing the road' joke to come by very soon....
Jun 12, 2006

hilaraus just hilaraus
i simply loved it
Jun 12, 2006

I agree with some. I think it was a cute joke.
Jun 12, 2006

I've seen this one before, so I already knew the answers, but it's fun no matter how many times I read it. Love it!
Jun 12, 2006

You can look at the elephant through the wrong end of binnoculars, pick him up with tweezers, put him in a milk carton, and then put him in the fridge. That's the way I heard the joke many years ago.
Jun 12, 2006

that is hilaious !
Jun 12, 2006

That's great! I loved it...
Jun 12, 2006

this reminds me of old times, my dad used to tell me jokes like that all the time. another one is
how do you get four elephants into a volkwagen beetle? two in the front and two in the back.
how do you know that the elephants are in the movies?
the volkswagen is in the parking lot.
Jun 12, 2006

Very funny. I never heard it before, but I got the elephant part right away, the zebra took me a little longer, but I didn't get the last two. But it was hilarious. Thanks. ,
Jun 12, 2006

Very funny. I never heard it before, but I got the elephant part right away, the zebra took me a little longer, but I didn't get the last two. But it was hilarious. Thanks. ,
Jun 12, 2006

one of my faves!
Jun 12, 2006

lighten up folks it's a FUN site.
Jun 12, 2006

As a joke, this is a terrific oldie that is definitely good for a few laughs. I have enjoyed this particular joke on several occasions, and it rarely gets old.

However, it's not a teaser. The teaser submission guidelines ( clearly state (in the fourth box down titled "Jokes") that does not accept jokes, and jokes should be submitted to

I've seen several examples in the past few weeks of jokes submitted as teasers. Sorry guys, but if I want jokes I'll go to a joke website. Hopefully the editors are watching out for this in the new teasers being submitted.
Jun 12, 2006

lol two thumbs up wow best yet 20 stars that realy fools u cause u think they are all diffrent good

Jun 12, 2006



anyway, why does everyone keep saying: "good one, mogmatt"? when it says it was submitted by arji?????
Yeah, yeah,, it's funny, but not a teaser really, and then sometimes you see other borderline teaser/jokes and some people here get all IRATE that someone dared to submit a joke to this website. Oh well...

Jun 12, 2006

I can do the first 2 parts in 2 steps each:

1. Step 1: Open the refrigerator.
Step 2: Put the elephant inside.

2. Step 1: Take the elephant out.
Step 2: Put the zebra inside.

It just says put the elephant and the zebra in the refrigerator. It doesn't say anything about closing the door!
Jun 12, 2006

i am adding this one to my favorites! I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!
Jun 12, 2006

will some of you smarter people please tell me the difference between a "joke" and a "teaser"?
they are both funny are they not? a very good job Arij, i knew the first 2.any time someone brings a smile to your face, thank them don't try to make them feel bad..... OK sermon over. it was fun for me!!!!!!!!! (the teaser, not the sermon) have a good life
Jun 12, 2006

i got it! hehe i'm proud of myself, and i love the joke/teaser or whatever it is! i too have heard the elephant/zebra joke before, and figured it out from there... very cute!
Jun 12, 2006

its so old! my 4 year old brother and his frenz tell that joke!
Jun 12, 2006

I thought on this a bit. The hint helped . Then I laughed when I found it to be a kind of funny puzzle. Thanks
Jun 12, 2006

I LOVED IT!!! very very cute!!!
Jun 12, 2006

This was a real groaner! I loved it, but had to peek.
Jun 12, 2006

The only answer I didn't get was 3 and 4, but those are hilarious! Keep up the GREAT work. Wonderful teaser. Very cute.
Jun 12, 2006

What is such funny is how this joke can on so different many places on the internet at the same time under so much different names. I just found it in Wocka. Maybe no one checks these so good. It was a funny joke.
Jun 12, 2006

That was funny when I was fourteen. It's still cute, but very old.
Jun 12, 2006

haha... nys... i remmbr these jokes from b4, n i was rili try'n 2 remmbr the answrs, but, alas, i cudn't... o well... ... still, nys job!

Jun 12, 2006

Animals renamed, but an old joke, but it still makes you think for a minute or two. In defense of the editors, these were questions, right? One must use your brain to answer questions, granted maybe not too hard in this case, but hey, step up to the plate and put your money where your mouth is. Hey Imurry, glad were argeed on this one.
Jun 12, 2006

omg, that was hilarious!!!!!!!!! its so going into my favs
Jun 12, 2006

how odd
Jun 12, 2006

good 1! i've heard it b4 but it was still really great!
Jun 13, 2006

That's freakin' stupid, couldn't you come up with a more logical scenario???
Jun 13, 2006

sooooooo easy!! totally got it, arely even needed to read it
Jun 13, 2006

Very funny! No luck again - didnt get any right.. Was wondering where it says that the answers for #2 onwards are linked to the earlier answers! Needs some different thinking.
Jun 14, 2006

Jun 16, 2006

lol, i loved it!
Jun 19, 2006

That was so confusing!! I didn't read the hint so I didn't know that the questions were linked together. It probably would have helped--a lot.......good one though
Jun 20, 2006

Very cute, I really liked this one. Thanks!!
Jun 25, 2006

I have heard the Zebra one, but the one about the King's Wedding and the river were a new twist. Very clever, yet easy
Sep 12, 2006

Heard it before - nice teaser though.
Nov 27, 2006

I knew till 3rd question but the last one was new to me.
Jan 04, 2007

That's really good!!! I just love teasers that are funny. Keep writing 'em!
Jan 25, 2007

Oh, and if you leave the door open, the cold will get out and the elephant will get warm and nobody likes a warm elephant.
Jul 08, 2008

it was easy 4 me bc i took it on youtube but it was really fun
Jul 16, 2008

Hehe very nice! I like it a lot.
Jun 12, 2009

WAY too funny!!! Great!
Jun 12, 2009

An old joke that people are going on about like it was the winning lottery ticket.

This worries me.

Can we get back to real teasers now?
Jun 12, 2009

I think I'm going to agree with doehead on this one...
Jun 12, 2009

Thanks emu77 for agreeing with me before I commented. This was the dumbest,stupidest, and biggest waste of time ever on briangle.The editors need their heads screwed on straighter. Enough said!!!
Jun 12, 2009

I used to use trick questions like these to prepare my students for their state board exams. It was fun as well as being a great exercise for them.
Jun 12, 2009

hmm very clever. i liked it. definetly going in my favs
Jun 12, 2009

Since most people agreed that this is a job, not a teaser, why is Braingle rerunning it after all this time? Does anyone know?
Jun 12, 2009

i love this teaser. I've seen it years ago, but it's always funny.
Jun 12, 2009

Love it!!!
Nov 20, 2011

love it!!!!!!
Jun 12, 2012

Everybody has said it all. Funny if you have never heard it before and boring and lame if you have. It really is an old one. I could not even crack a smile. Sorry. Glad a lot of you liked it though!!!
Jun 12, 2012

If you look at how many people responded in 2005 & 2006 you will notice how this site has eroded. All because the teasers are 98% repeats!!!
Jun 12, 2012

Same remark I made in 2009 applies, except job was meant to be joke.
Jun 12, 2012

I have so many comments: but I'll just say If I wanted a stupid grade school riddle I would have logged onto a different site.
Jun 12, 2012

I am an old, retired grandma, and have always been a fan of jokes - I have never heard this one before. No, I didn't figure it out. I liked it very much! - If all of the people who complained for some reason would just leave a quick comment, then find a teaser more to their liking, we who enjoyed it could enjoy it even more by not having to slog through all the complaints.
Good job!
Jun 12, 2012

I just read this one on the internet. I already new the answers. I'm wondering if I can submit something like this too. I really didn't know that you could. I wish I could remember where I read this one. It is cute though.
Wish I could remember but I won't.
Jun 12, 2012

OMG! Most epic riddle ever ! Anyways, I loved this riddle! Going on my FAVS!
Jun 12, 2012

GWeb - if ya dont like it, go complain to somebody else because THERE ARE PEOPLE WO LIKE DIFFERENT THINGS THAN YOU, If you dont want a 'stupid middle school joke' than dont read it.
Aug 31, 2013

This is a very good riddle, but completely unoriginal. Totally plagiarized.
Jun 12, 2015

Funny, but I have seen it before.
Jun 12, 2015

silly, but cute...nice to see something a little different
Jun 12, 2015

I thought teasers had to be original or attributed to the source.
There have been a few minor alterations to this version from others I've seen, but it is the same "teaser".
Also, another poster was correct, it should specify there is no bridge. Otherwise why swim?
Jun 12, 2015

Still funny as all get-out. Loved it then, love it now. Thanks for a good laugh.
Jun 12, 2015

It may be old, but still funny!
Jun 12, 2015

On another site, where the zebra was replaced by a giraffe, a user stated:

"I scored 0/4.

"I admire you Americans with your Elephant sized fridges, your overly hot giraffes, obedient crocodiles and your Lions with organizational skills.

"How did the Lion score BTW?"

I also disagree with those saying it's just a joke. The same site says the first is to test your ability to make simple solutions, the second is to test your ability to think things through, the third tests your memory, and the fourth sees if you can learn from your mistakes.
