I liked it.Got it in a few times.But i prefer no bad or coarse language
kimberlykayAus*
Apr 12, 2006

I thought it was quite clever. Also, I do NOT find the language to be an issue. It is acceptable to refer to a donkey as an ass. Good job!

donkies ARE referred to as an ass. In fact, they are sometimes reffered to as jackasses.

Very clever and fun, yet not too difficult!

i got it almost right away, great teaser

and yeah, donkey=ass, its totally appropriate to say the"a word" in that context, just as the fact that veterenarians and others who work with dogs, when referring to a female as the "b word", aren't swearing!

GEEZE!
irar1792Aus*
May 04, 2006

I guess actually typing out "the b word" isn't allowed... even when in a harmless context...

Easy. There are so many more "BAD" words than ass. What about "kittycat" (k=p, i=u, t=s, y=y)? Sorry. Thank you for the teaser.

"Ass" is not profanity ebraham when it is the animal's name
I had myself behind the 2 of them
with a nation behindme. I thought the answer was WAR! Wrong I feel like a donkey.
ViaTunisi*
May 09, 2007

I can't believe I didn't get that. I got stuck on democrats, politics, the president, etc.

May 09, 2007

it would have been more difficult if the "nation" word was represented in the teaser by a different word, such as "country", but it was a good one! I didn't get it!
pengzoidAus*
May 09, 2007

great teaser although i didnt get it.
for you bleeding hearts that think any word is bad.
thats like saying guns kill people but it takes someone to pull the trigger.
any word can be taken as 'bad' if used in the wrong context.
so table off you silly hair ties.

That was an awesome teaser! Nicely done. People, it's just a donkey. I think its perfectly fine to call it the a word.

when it said donkey, i imediatly thought polotics. i actually thought this was impeachment ( like murdering someones political carrer) and thought the donkey behind the second donkey was the vice president

i was clueless to say the least
QrystalAca*
Jun 25, 2007

Wow, awesome how some people were really thinking way too much on this! politics! hah! definitely full of donkeys though.

Anyways, I thought the teaser was a nice fun and easy wakeup for the brain. Kudos!

I love puzzles (like this one) which are so simple and your first thought is "HUH?" but once you work it out you are sure you are right. This is my favorite riddle so far (and I'm working through them from most to least popular).

I can't believe I got this one. It was fun also. With all the bad language on television today and every where else, I can't believe someone objects to the word "ass" which is what the animal is called.
Unbelievable. What an ass!
Maggiethe8th*us*
May 13, 2013

I wasn't patient enough this morning to get it . But that didn't matter when I saw & enjoyed the answer! Clever & fun-
HABS2933Aca*

With the title I was already leaning toward either assassination or manslaughter. After reading the first part of the clue, i was quite obvious which one was the correct answer.
I am also at a loss as to why people are objecting to the word. Though I am surprised Braingle allowed it. As pointed out above site will not allow the use of the B word (no matter how intended) and I know from one of the quizzes I also blocks out other words that could be taken as vulgar no matter how they were intended (I had a problem with Moby Dick" in one of my quizzes.

May 13, 2013

Although I didn't actually figure out the clues, I looked at the word murder and the word nation and came up with assassination! when I read the answer, and looked at the clues again, I thought "Of Course!!"
Really nice quiz!
