i've seen this one before except the word 'must' was written horizontally between the words 'what' and "comes" written vertically
lucylizzy*
Apr 27, 2004

Wow really clever! I thought it woz just 'come what must' or 'what must come' - but I did think that woz a bit strange and there must be more to it! Well done though, nice one!

Lovin' it! Nice one!
dapperDave**
Apr 28, 2005

Actually EACSFO, that would be "what up, must down" and technically, what the teaser says is EITHER "what up, must come down" or "what GOES UP, must come GOES DOWN". So, wouldn't the most accurate version of the teaser be:

TSMC
AEUO
HOSM
WGTE

Either way, I still liked this one.

I got another one, Hurrah for me! Usually am not too good at these but I got it. I agree tho, what does T M C stand for?
gnosys
Apr 28, 2006

Great! In retrospect it seems blindingly obvious (the solution being an incredibly common phrase), and although I was more or less on the right track I couldn't quite get it. (I didn't want to spend too much time on it, because I was afraid it might turn out to be stupid and unsatisfying -- the fact that the quality of these things varies so wildly from day to day is the most frustrating aspect of this site.)

To me TCM is The Movie Channel which has no bearing on this good thinker.

I finally got one without any trouble.Good teaser.
BeckyD*
Apr 28, 2006

Too easy. I got it too quickly to even be entertaining enough (for me) to be called a teaser. Well, no brain strain today! [*sigh!*]
kman613**

Very easy (for a change) and fun. That was a good one
hockeygirl*mx*

I must need more practice with rubics... I need practice...

MurfQ*ca*

Very easy, but still I liked it. Nice job
scallioAus*
Apr 28, 2006

Great one! Fun too!

Just curious-- why eliminate "GOES" in the up but add "COME" in the down?

I thought it was good, however, I did not get it until I looked at the answer. Nice one.

Hmm, I got it when I saw the answer. I thought it had something to do with thaw and spring... I liked it!
azbee123*us*
Apr 28, 2006

I got it! woohoo! i loved it... going into my favs.

thanks!!!
freakydoughnut1*
Apr 28, 2006

Finally someone puts a good teaser on. Kudos.
SandraBca*
Apr 28, 2006

AAHHH! I got it, good one! At first I thought each letter in a horizontal line represented the first letter of a three word phrase, each line being a separate phrase... which totally stumped me. Then I thought all the letters of a phrase were scrambled, I was thinking it was something with "costume wear" but that didn't seem to be right. Finally I realized it was a REBUS and it clicked!!

Again, Great Job!!
TheEarthling*no*
Apr 28, 2006

Very easy, but very clever!
thimblenogginus*
Apr 28, 2006


I don't think you needed the COME.
DufusXus*
Apr 28, 2006

I read the words "what" "must" and "come", but i couldn't ficgure out what those meant.
pdmrphyca*
Apr 28, 2006

I agree the COME wasn't needed, may have made it more difficult infact. Still a great teaser.. probably me favorite style
scr26*
Apr 29, 2006

THAT WAS A REALLY GOOD ONE! i didnt get it...but after i saw the answer it made total sense! GOOD JOB!
AbsurdHero*us*
Apr 28, 2007

Good and easy.
cloughmeAws*
Apr 28, 2007

Excellent! However, I do agree that you don't need the "COME."
Yankee47Aus*
Apr 28, 2007

Nice one even though it confused me for a second
teri12265us*
Apr 28, 2007

Mornin' all!

I thought it was 'a preview of what must come'.

Oh well, thanks for the mental wake-up!

Have a happy day!!!!!
doeheadAus*

Remove the cobwebs,get out the dust cloth,we're featuring another historic repeat.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Apr 28, 2007

A clever teaser, even though it is a little bit easier than some of the rest. A good job, Braingle! Keep up the good work!
Pizzazz2uAus*
Apr 28, 2007

Here is an *off of the wall* comment for doehead.... if you have voted ONLY 44 times, why are these repeats for you? I can see you have gone through the teasers and have seem the dates on many of them, but why the nasty comments to Braingle?

a note to PIZZAZZ2U .I have been on these for 2 years ,but just started to vote recently because I got tired of repeats.So why don't you go curl up and go to sleep as that would shut up you nasty remarks.
brainiac9865us
Apr 28, 2007

i dont get it
ShikamaruAus*
Apr 28, 2007

i dont get it either. im only seeing "what must come". how does that say what goes up must come down? there isnt even a G.
cgold03
Apr 28, 2007

a note to the person above me:

the word WHAT is written from bottom to top, meaning that it is "going up" and MUST COME is written downward, so WHAT goes up, and MUST COME is down

get it?

good one, to whoever created this
2ndhandroseca*
Apr 28, 2007

Thanks Raneeday. Fun! I got come down but didn'it think to read what from bottom up. Very common phrase 4 me. Gnosys.... isn't Variety the Spice of Life? I enjoy them all being different, my opinion only. I blew another one but had to think & that's what I want with my morning tea. Cheers
2ndhandroseca*
Apr 28, 2007

4 - Stormy Eyes
I thought it had to do with Spring & Thaw also, but come down didn't make sense. Maybe because it's a weird spring in TO & it's a rainy Saturday.
Great minds think alike

to be honest; can you solve this one, I'm eating a burger and think, no. it was fun once i saw the answer maybe just needed a bit more time.
tamjpAus*
Apr 28, 2007

I was proud that I solved it until I saw that I had already read it 2 years ago

Still a good teaser!

I enjoyed your teaser - it took me longer than it should have, but I was making it more difficult than it was. For me, "TMC" was "too much concentration!" Thanks.
Harmony_GirlAus*
Apr 29, 2007

Ok, im a little embarrassed about this one--the SECOND time i read the teaser, i still didnt get it!! And on top of it all i had to scroll through the entire list of comments to find out if id already left one!

That aside, fantastic teaser!
speedqueenkmwAus*
Apr 30, 2007

good one
MadelulabelleAus*
May 02, 2007

Boy is my face red!
I didn't even get any of the words, let alone piece together the phrase. It even took me a long while to figure out AFTER I saw the answer. I am not very awake today, which is understandable because I was on a Red Eye flight last night and got back at 5 and couldnt sleep a wink on the plane and am now experiencing jet lag.

Sorry, enough excuses, great teaser!

I rarely get rebuses, but this one was super easy, which I don't mind at all!

Doehead, I don't usually love your negative comments, but this grandchildren one was really cute!! btw, are you able to share with me what AROB means? And will you? (the distinction is a long, personal story....)

After finding the teaser easy, I read the comments and must agree that it is AROB.

I love this one. And who cares if it a repeat. When you get to my age, you'll forget you ever saw it before!
