Easy but fun. I can't believe people actually said that, especially the last one
Sep 26, 2007

Sep 27, 2007

What do you think they could have been on when saying these stupid things? Kinda makes ya wonder?
Sep 27, 2007

loved it, it shows they're human and fallable. Or smoked some whacky stuff.
Sep 27, 2007

great one! seems like every teaser I thoroughly enjoy is written by you.

Sep 27, 2007

oh man that cracks me up... some people!
Sep 28, 2007

Brooke Shields is so wise good teaser
Feb 15, 2008

Thiswas so funny!great teaser griledcheese!
Feb 25, 2008

Nice job.
Feb 25, 2008

easy but real fun. I had read before about those people saying those funny things. I always wondered why such people become so important with all their flies in the attic...
Feb 25, 2008

Fun teaser!
Feb 25, 2008

The only downfall is that it tried to be a good teaser but failed with the scrambling of words. In order to guarantee truly scrambled, the beginning and ending of the word must not be the same when scrambled such as:

practically --> ptcalarcily
practically --> ytcalarcilp

Something like the latter is much harder to unscramble than the former.
Feb 25, 2008

Maybe kratsq is right, but I liked it just the way it is. Nice teaser, thanks for posting.
Feb 25, 2008

It was very easy, but at least you could get a good laugh out of it!
Feb 25, 2008

About as easy as scrambling eggs.I personally didn't like it. Sorry.
Feb 25, 2008

Com'on folks, this is a fun teaser and the quotes are funny, but please realize that Dan Quayle (at least - maybe also the others) was poking fun at himself.

He may not have been the sharpest knife in the drawer but he rolled with it and at least kept up a good sense of humor. This is simply an example of that - give him a little credit.
Feb 25, 2008

5 seconds. Too EZ for me but the quotes themselves are very funny
Feb 25, 2008

I think that was perfect. Also, easy. Thanks!
Feb 25, 2008

easy but fun!
Feb 25, 2008

lol. yeah those comments are pretty stupid, but the first two are surprisingly sensible in their stupidity.
Feb 25, 2008

Easy, but fun and funny.
Feb 25, 2008

Easy, yet fun . Thx.
Feb 25, 2008

Com'on tpg, he was only kiddin' about inventing the the Internet too, huh?

Oh...wait...that was the other loser that made stupid statements on purpose!
Feb 25, 2008

scnecie porevs taht any hmuan can raed a wrod as lnog as the fsrit and lsat ltters are in the croect palce. i dont get the last one.
Feb 25, 2008

oh....duh. lol.
Feb 25, 2008

Too easy by far, but a I have a good laugh every time I read those quotes. Thanks.
Feb 25, 2008

This teaser needed to be easy so that Brooke, Bob, and Dan could solve it.
Feb 25, 2008

it was really easy, but I liked it!
Feb 25, 2008

Could have scrambled the letters a little more to make it more difficult but I liked it anyway.
Good laughs there
Feb 25, 2008

Awesome teaser! Easy, but it was fun b/c of the meaninglessness of the quotes...thanks for the teaser.
Feb 26, 2008

LOL, yeah fatster - I think that he (Al G.) might actually have done that - the jury is still out!

As for Danny Q., com'on, this is all small potatose, no?

And kf you ask Ted Kennedy, both are just more water under the bridge.
Mar 01, 2008

easy, fun, and even funnier... i got a laugh out of them, as i do everytime i read one of the mant stupid state laws that still remain in existence ... if anyone is bored and interested, this is one of my favs... check it out

The phenomenon of scrambling words while keeping the first and last letters the same and yet still being readable is not at all universal. It only works in some cases. Here is a link to a study on this ( where they give three examples where it becomes progressivly more difficult to read:
1) A vheclie epxledod at a plocie cehckipont near the UN haduqertares in Bagahdd on Mnoday kilinlg the bmober and an Irqai polcie offceir
2) Big ccunoil tax ineesacrs tihs yaer hvae seezueqd the inmcoes of mnay pneosenirs
3) A dootcr has aimttded the magltheuansr of a tageene ceacnr pintaet who deid aetfr a hatospil durg blendur

Also, they give this example which could have several translations:
"The sprehas had ponits and patles"
This might come out as...
The sherpas had pitons and plates.
The shapers had points and pleats.
The seraphs had pintos and petals.
The sphaers had pinots and palets.
The sphears had potins and peltas.

I liked this quiz and of course it was very funny! I hope that Brooke, Bob and Dan were intentionally being funny!
and, Elentir, your comments were interesting and informative!
Feb 25, 2011

Nice teaser.
Feb 25, 2011

Feb 25, 2011

I have another stupid quote:

"fi qzoiuns dnidt eisxt nitheir wloud I" - grilledcheese
Feb 25, 2011

Ooh, I like! Here's my own:

"If Red Lbsoetr dnitd eisxt, I crtnilay wudlon't!"
Feb 25, 2014

Easy teaser, but a fun one and how funny that they even said that.
I hope they see this somewhere somehow and feel embarrassed.
Feb 25, 2014

Funny quotes but a little bit simplistic method of making a teaser out of it. Good work though
Feb 25, 2014

Feb 25, 2017

Feb 25, 2017

Pretty easy.
Feb 27, 2017

Really easy, but still fun.
