Nice teaser, I went through about 403,212 words of my vocabulary before I just had to peek at the answer. It was like: 'Of' Nope. 'Off' Nope. and so on...

I'M SURPRISED SO FEW PEOPLE DIDN'T KNOW THE ANSWER. WE LEARNED THAT IN ENGLISH CLASS.

Hummm, a real thinker...the a.m. shift might need that extra cup of joe for this one. And there no failure or discredit for missing this one. It's may seem simple but... A Good One.

I no get it! I mean, I get it, but I didnt GET the answer.

I went through the vowels, becoz there would have to be a vowel, with every letter, "ababab, acacac, cacaca, dada, addad", but, deeded just didn't occur to me when I did the "eb, ec, eded, efeef", altho, at the end, I did kinda start to think that there would probably be a double vowel, which would narrow it down to "ee, oo", but, for all my wonderful organized thinking, I still didn't GET IT! And, like the other person here, I don't think I ever would have guessed it unless I wrote every possible combination down. Then maybe after 2000 combination, maybe, maybe...

Thanks for the great teaser!

Does the fact that I wasn't even sure "deeded" was a real word mean that I have to relinquish my Braingle membership?

This is a very outstanding teaser, although I came up with the answer right away My mind was in gear, this morning. This does get you to test ALL possibilities. Thank you, Brain!

I don't feel so bad about not getting it.

Fun one, Brainster! I didn't have the time to try like some of the overachievers here ... SHAWNEEO! I plan to use this as a teaser when I'm at camp this week!

I wasn't even sure "deeded" was a real word either, so I looked it up. It does not exist in the Oxford Dictionary © 1998, but it is in the American Heritage Dictionary © 1978.

Wow! That was a tough one! Couldn't get it, but had fun trying to figure it out. Keep em' coming!

NBen...I kept coming back to lalala too! Great teaser. Worked and worked and still didn't get it. Thanks, Brainster.

That's why she's the Brainster.
Made me feel dumb since I am a licensed assessor - should know something about deeds. Like the old assessor's joke - how high is an awning? Give up? It's just a shade above the ground. Thanks Brainster, keep them coming.

Great teaser! Though the use of the word 'deeded' is uncommon in my country, I could still get it after some effort. I WAS excited! Thanks . Would like to see more such teasers!

I was just too curious about the answer to keep looking for it myself. I'm glad I gave up quickly .... it could've potentially bothered me all day, but instead I get to move on to another teaser before my coffee is finished.

Good morning!

No, no you are wrong. Clearly the only reasonable answer is "nanana!"

the closest I came was to banana, unfortunately it had 3 letters. Deeded eluded me as it did so many others.

Aug 23, 2009

Thanks for the comments all! The only way I could think of proving this leftclick, was to use an online anagram solver. It didn't give me any other option except the word "deeded"!
avonmaAus*
Aug 24, 2009

Very good!
I kept thinking of words with repeated letters, but there was always a THIRD letter lurking in there! I just couldn't come up with only two different letters! I kept thinking of Mississippi, banana, rococo, Bimini until I just got lost in all the letters. Never even thought of a word with "e's" - That is really bad - with all the "e's" in words!

@composer

I've never even heard anyone use the word before, so.... XD

nice teaser, by the way

This would take way too much time to figure out so I did not even try, but you all liked it so that makes it a good teaser.

I definitely didn't get this one. It was a real thinker!! Unfortunately, I couldn't get past "cocoon.....No. It ends with an 'n'...........cocoon....No....."
jaycr*us*
Aug 23, 2012

A tough one, yes in deed.
katamaster*
Aug 23, 2012

Would dedeeded by a word? To remove a deed from somebody. That would be something.
