It won't be too long until "The Beatles" applies to this one. Hang on, Paul & Ringo!

the only reason it will not apply to The Beatles one day is because the question states I am a rock group that HAS, and not i am a rock group that HAD. Good teaser.

Going by the sorts of answers you mainly get in this category I was expecting the answer to be "I am a rock group".

I thought for sure that the comments would be about how easy it was. I didn't find anything tricky about this one today.

Boy, was I out in left field with this one....I thought it might be a geologic answer, as in the four types of rocks, with "metamorphic" being converted (assasinated) from another kind of rock.


Really liked this one. Thanks.
chaskey*us*
Aug 13, 2007

Quite clever! I didn't get it, but I did enjoy reading the answer.
Chellie1911Aen*
Aug 13, 2007

im sorry - but i really didnt get this at all! - im either thick - or just dont know wt bout mount rushmoor - but i thought it would be about the differentrocks ( sedemetry, metamorpic, and the others lol)

lilredc5*
Aug 13, 2007

Every teaser there are a few comments that say 'that was so easy'. No matter what the teaser is. I always read that as 'I am so much smarter than the rest of you and I say that because i am starved for validation '. Maybe it's just me. Even on the ones I personally think are easy I don't leave that comment. At any rate, this is one of the best teasers I have read on here. According to one comment it may have been plagerized? Not that i care, fun one.
mondayschild59Aus*

I didn't get it, but when I read the answers it made sense. That was a great teaser. Thanks for posting.

Loved it, though I too thought it was the Beatles.

Poor Paul and Ringo for those of you that guessed the Beatles! Last I heard they were very much alive and kicking. Both my son and I tried this and neither of us got it. (and my sister just went there last month too!) Clever one!
jabdrAus*
Aug 13, 2007

Ok Lilred..It's not like I thought it was easy, though I think at times, we all want some validation Let's just say, I guessed right and am tickled as it was such a clever teaser
speedqueenkmwAus*
Aug 13, 2007

haha good one
busler1
Aug 13, 2007

Neat, even tho I got it in about 5 seconds . The "What am I " rather than "Who am I" gave it away for me.
sbuskeAus*
Aug 13, 2007

Lilred, You're 100 % correct. I have often wondered how many say it was so easy after they read the answer. Good teaser.
KelbyAus*
Aug 13, 2007

I loved this teaser. It was great.
soccer_chick70Aus*
Aug 13, 2007

I thought of the Dead Kennedys... but that doesn't exactly fit, but hey, i tried!
Neek*us*
Aug 13, 2007

Lilred--You expressed what I have thought so many times and I commend you for that. I'm sure there are some that don't mean anything by it, but I too feel that it isn't necessary, even if it was super easy.

Excellent teaser!

LOL, great teaser.

Aug 13, 2010

I should have worked harder on this one. I figured "rock group" is a trick and "assassinated" usually refers to politicians and such. Gave up too soon!
patiencewithaP*us*
Aug 13, 2010

Fun...although I was expecting the answer to be "rock group" too!

Babe*
Aug 13, 2013

I knew from the title that it actually had something to do with rocks and I found it very amusing. I really liked it.
If you see this doehead, please realize that a lot of us are new to this and have never seen them before. You can certainly tell that by the comments. Can't you? We are enjoying everything except your complaints!
eighsseAus*
Aug 13, 2013

One of the best trick teasers I've seen, BRILLIANT!
doeheadAus*
Aug 13, 2013

Well here we go again. I was already bashed by Babe w/o me even remarking today. Yesterday I got slammed by 3 or 4 people that aren't using their heads. My point is if the editors would give out new material they would have 40 to 50 remarks everyday instead of 5 or 6. I know it is new to you 5 or 6,but old to the faithful that are leaving everyday because of the editors lack of concern.
With that said, may all who bash me have their tongues washed w/soap and their brains reworked.
I said I was only back for a week. So now I must say: DOEHEAD has just left the internet, never to be heard from again. To all my friends GOODBYE and to my enemies I say GROWUP and THINK.
doeheadAus*
Aug 13, 2013

By the way, todays teaser was another worn out repeat. Enjoy your golf game editors.( you must do something, because you don't work).
cutebugAus*

Wow, that was a powerful statement by doehead. I have to agree with him 100%.
I wish him well.

I was thinking Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John as being the four members of the Rock upon which Jesus built His church.
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 13, 2013

This was a good one! And Mt. Rushmore is one of the most fascinating sights in the United States. I read that George Washington's nose alone is 18 feet high! The monument was sculpted with extra-ordinary accuracy! Thanks for posting this teaser!
auntiesisAus*
Aug 13, 2013

Cute teaser. Got it. Loved it.

I got the right answer, but I like dsjt's answer better!! Good teaser -
