I've never heard the term "Five Finger Discount" - but find it very clever! Good teaser!

actually, 5 finger discount means that you stoled it and paid nothing for it.. not 5 dollars off

nice tho! i didnt guess right

Sep 20, 2007

Thank you for continued good comments

It does say it's been stolen. But the teaser is 5 fingers off, not dollars

Goes to show how bad at rebuses I am . I should've known this one because i read a book of brain teasers and one of them was called 5 finger discount . oh well nice one anyway.
katjojoAus*
Oct 20, 2007

I thought of that right away! But, like the other guy said "5 finger discount" means you stole it.
bradon182001*us*
Oct 20, 2007

I liked it Sarah7, I thought it was clever. It was easy, but still very clever as s rebus.
bradon182001*us*
Oct 20, 2007

Woops, meant as a rebus.
sarah7Aen*
Oct 20, 2007

Thank you for the mostly good comments

kat, it says it's something that was stolen
kwelchansAus*
Oct 20, 2007

Well, when you get a good deal on something, they do say it was a steal!

Don't know where my mind is at

PEACE!!!!!

THIS WAS A GOOD ONE, GOT IT RIGHT AWAY!!
SweetPotatoAus*
Oct 20, 2007

I rated it Fun but Hard because "Five Finger Discount," though I'd heard it before, was so far back in my brain it wouldn't have come out for a hundred years.
My answer, though, was "Handoff," alluding to five fingers being one hand, meant it was one hand off (discount).

It was a great teaser. I guessed it right off. Not that I've ever stolen anything, I just knew the answer.
Thanks for posting.

Monday~

Oct 20, 2007

I also immediately thought "a hand-off," which would really have been much more appropriate, as a five finger discount is stealing.
sarah7Aen*
Oct 20, 2007

Thanks for more good comments
The point of the teaser is that it's stealing.. It says so..and a rebus is the fact that it isn't exactly it
Harmony_GirlAus*
Oct 20, 2007

Love it!
ItsJustWildman*us*
Oct 20, 2007

Fun and easy... It's good to have a "gimme" every once in a while...
breathesunshineAus*
Oct 20, 2007

I went with a hand-off also. Oh well. Had fun trying!
kaykay2495Aus*
Oct 20, 2007

I'm not very good at figuring out the obvious so I didn't get this one... but it is clever!

Ha ha...good one!
Babe*

So if you have never heard the phrase how can you guess the answer? I guess I am an ogre if I say I did not like it at all. It made no sense to me. Sorry!
eighsseAus*
Oct 20, 2013

I know the phrase, so I got it very easily. It kind of lacked creativity. But a good try.
