Yay! I got them all! The book club thing was a good one, cos I remembered it because one of Oprah's shows talked about her having a book club too!

I missed only one. The one about the Book Personality. I would have never gotten that one right in a hundred years. Thanks so much for a great teaser.

fairly easy, but nice...Hey Lmurray, if these are no challenge, then why don't you create and submit some teasers that would reach your high standards??

A tuber is a root vegetable such as a potato. Good teaser.

Sep 13, 2007

I got em all right but had to look up tuber in the dictionary just to make sure. Loved the quiz, not too hard and not too easy. and I agree with you 100% Yorkshire-Boy!!

I usually try to rearrange things into non-personal words - i.e. not names. However, I did get Oprah after using the clues below and going backwards.

I got them all.
auntiesisAus*
Sep 13, 2007

I thought Oprah was the easiest one of all, after that the others fell into place.

Sep 13, 2007

I only got nuber one because i didnt realize that the number didnt have to corrispond with the letter. (1,a-2,b-3,c). I guess I should have read the directions more carefully!



Nice job!

Oddrey: The directions were not very clear.

Suggestion for writing the directions on this teaser: "Find an anagram for EACH of the words in Group A. Each anagram will have a matching definition in Group B."

Cool teaser! I got 3/6 (the last three) right before I gave up... I was even thinking of driving, but could not get "drove"...
Well, I'm an impatient person and don't always have the patience to solve a riddle to its end. Keep more teasers like this coming!

I agree with Grandma B above. The instructions could have been clearer, more precise.

Instructions were clearer than my brain this morning Gave up early after only getting a couple needed more coffee! Fun!

For some reason, the answers came easily for me today. I like jumble puzzles. To each his own, I guess. Thanks for posting!

Habs. and gaylewolf I wrote a long answer to you in last night's teaser, but guess you did not read it. I am fine and do not know why I missed those you refer to. I usually do everyone unless I am extremely sick, so thank you both for being concerned and liking me. I like you both also.
I only missed one on this teaser and it was fun!

This one is a decent teaser and it's a shame that "pepamint"-'patty' was driven off the boards over 3000 days ago.

She was a creative and valued Braingle member but several of you didn't like her.

I missed yesterday's TOTD (we been VERY busy) ... but wanted to add the comment made by my bro (Jay) but discovered it's been deleted because a lot of you didn't like HIM ..,. either ...

Here's his comment (yesterday's TOTD)) (we; Dad, Jay, I ... copy ALL our stuff to Braingle .. so we got it on file.)

Great rebus/teaser. I'm glad to see you got it accepted by the eds. Even though "do", "dew", "due" are not pronounced EXACTLY the same, they are close enough for a punned rebus. Hope to see some more.
________________________

I'll add my own ... (also to yesterday's TOTD)
________________________

I (Jaye ... not Jay) think it's time those linear/literal thinkers of you who are incapable of "cluster" or "non-linear" problem-solving stop trashing some contributions to Braingle - mainly some of the Rebuses.

A Rebus (by definition and common understanding and usage) is NOT a pragmatic puzzle. They can't be solved by the usual rules.

It requires some of the "intuitive leap" to solve.

And it's NO SIN that some of you simply can't do it and, therefore, can't "see" the solution and therefore come up with ALL SORTS of things to make yourselves feel better about not dealing well with Rebuses.

Live with it, but stop *I***I* about it.

Thank you.

Enjoyed this teaser - thanks. And, thanks, Babe, for your comments yesterday. I did read those and appreciate it.

Have a great day!
