Good work.
Jun 02, 2002

couldnt it be a regular cat too?
Jun 04, 2002

it could be a normal cat 2!
Jun 15, 2002

good teaser.
Jun 19, 2002

Very simple, I got it right after reading the question. No, It couldn't be a normal cat because, at least I am assuming, it means that the cat can see equally well on both the outside and inside of it's body. Therefore only a blind cat would not be able to see at all on both of those "sides".
Jun 21, 2002

he means both sides i.e. left and right, & a blind cat can see neither, so geddit? but it could also be a chameleon, u know, and i assume that since my chameleon eats dog food, it wud prolly eat cat food as well, and it CAN, btw, look left & right at the same time cuz of the positioning of it's eye.

"sides" needs to be defined in advance in order to reach that specific conclusion. If we are referring to a sphere, please tell me how you would define a "side".
Apr 15, 2003

I'm still laughing....Oh well I got it 50% right.
Aug 31, 2003

Ha ha ha! That's a good one!
One of my favs
Apr 23, 2006

Shoot! The last one threw me off. Nice one!
Jul 26, 2006

I got the "cat" part after reading "eats cat food", but not all cats eat cat food, so...
Oct 19, 2008

I got blind, but was trying to come up with a creature that doesn't have eyes.
Nov 22, 2009

I was thinking a dead cat, but that can't eat cat food, right?
Dec 09, 2009

Haha. Very good. I LOLed
Dec 09, 2009


That's hilarious!
Dec 09, 2009

Good teaser!

Sides refer to the frontside and the backside, so it couldn't be a normal cat because none has eyes on the back of it head of on its backside, lol!
Dec 09, 2009

As it never states what the ends are, left/right is as equally valid an assumption as front/back. If you choose left/right for your ends, a normal sighted cat sufficiently answers the question as well as a blind one. However, a blind cat will cover all presumed 'ends' and thus so, is the best answer.

Good teaser!
Dec 09, 2009

Awwh, this reminds me of my poor blind, long-departed kitty!
But the teaser was maybe too obvious, but then again, I can't think of how it could have been written as a better trick.
Dec 09, 2009

HaHaHa! That was tricky. I got the cat part. The blind part was hard. A blind cat can not see anything equally on the cat's body. Which makes a blind cat.
Dec 09, 2009

Come on . . .

"Sees equally well" implies sight and then the answer is a cat who can't see?

The answer should be a cat that turns its head to the side; it can see both in front and behind at the same time.
Dec 09, 2009

Blind cats don't see. But over all consideration, this was about as stupid as they come. If I stepped on the writers toes I'm sorry, because they needed stomped on.
Dec 09, 2009

Or a two-headed cat Good trick!
Dec 09, 2009

I thought this was a horrible teaser. Is it supposed to be funny?
My answer was an elephant.
Dec 09, 2009

That was funny! I thought it was a regular cat, cause it has a left eye and a right eye, and each I sees equally well?
Dec 09, 2009

Dec 09, 2009

It says both "ends" of it's body---not "sides". To me it is quite clear what that means.

It sees equally well, which in this case is "not at all".

I can't understand what all the fuss is about. Why spend so much time and waste space picking apart the teasers?

I thought is was a good riddle, even though I don't like the concept of a blind cat.
Dec 09, 2009

Good one! I was thinking a dead cat!
Dec 09, 2009

Dec 09, 2009

Reread the teaser, folks. It said both ENDS, not both sides--in other words, its head and its butt.

I can't believe I didn't get it!

What a fun teaser!
Mar 18, 2011

Poor cat.
Aug 06, 2012

Neat teaser!
I was thinking an eyeless cat!
Dec 09, 2012

Could have been a few other blind animals. But I'll give you credit for coimg up with the story.
Dec 09, 2012

That is gross and not even funny. Those kind of jokes are sick!! Yell at me all you want. It is how I feel and my opinion!
Dec 09, 2012

LOL! I liked it!
Dec 09, 2012

Worst and most sickening teaser ever.To the writer-GET A LIFE.
Dec 09, 2012

I have to agree with Babe. I found it somewhat gross.
Dec 09, 2012

First let me join the list of people who didn't like this teaser.
IT could have been any number of animals. As someone else stated his chameleon eats cat food as does my dog.
"sees equally well out of both ends of its body" to me that would mean the front end and the back end (head and rear).
And on a final note - "Blind' does not mean having no sight at all. There are degrees of blindness in humans (I should know, I am considered legally blind but can see well enough to get around on my own without a cane or dog but not well enough to read or drive). This is also true for animals. A blind cat may still be able to see a few feet, or see shadows or the outline of objects. Ergo, no he cannot see equally well from both ends (regardless of what ends we are discussing) as one does not see at all and the other could potentially see something (albeit not much).
Not a good teaser at all.
Dec 09, 2012

Well said HABS!!! this teaser is way too ambiguous.
Dec 09, 2012

Some people are "blind" to the concept that this is a "trick" teaser. And even though I have several cats, and love them all enough to volunteer for a cat rescue, I enjoyed your teaser. We need humor (even occasional "black humor") to maintain our sanity! Thanks for submitting!
Dec 09, 2012

I got an actual chuckle out of it. Thanks.

Dec 09, 2012

For my hint, I would have said, "What creature can see out of its rear end? What does that tell you about the other end?"

Good teaser.
Dec 09, 2012

Sorry I thought it was stupid. No offense but this one sucked.
Dec 10, 2012

Well said, @thecatlady! And what's gross about a blind cat anyway? It's not like it had its eyes poked out for the sake of the teaser. Lighten up people.

*banging head on keyboard*
Dec 09, 2015

There are many animals that would eat cat food.
