the hint was ridiculous. in any case, an alternate answer could have been a gear/cog.

I was surprised to find out I got this "wrong" when I suggested rejection.

Ok, I confess. I was the one who allowed this teaser to pass through! But, wait a minute, I am not an editor. How can this be?

I have a sneaking suspicion that I was the editor who accepted this, HOWEVER, I am certain that I changed it so that it was more acceptable. Jake has been alerted to the fact that this teaser didn't properly record the corrections and edits that were made when it was accepted.

Thats was possibly the worst...hint...ever.

With all due respect to Snaps, and I means that most sincerely, even with your proposed edits, it was still extremely poor.

I don't get why it says " I have teeth, but I dont eat." and then says "I love to eat." OK Weird!

that is one of the main reasons that I voted to return it to the submitter for a rewrite based on our (the editors) suggestions.

I didn't really like it because they gave you the answer in the hint.

I hope my zipper doesn't try to eat!

Well, my answer was a comb. And if the comb was full of hair, some people might spend a lot of time trying to stop hair loss.

Sorry, but I didn't like this one. It doesn't make sense to see it doesn't eat and then say that it does.

I've never really held my zipper open for hours, sorry if that's not normal.

I thought it was a chain saw. The last part made me think of a fire, but that didn't really work with the first part. I agree with MasterMind90
