The christmas tree or lightboard in dragracing starts on red and stops on green in a descending pattern at the start of each race.

I thought it was EATING A STRAWBERRY!!! Can't believe how close I was

Great Teaser!
jannie_delta*wa*
Jun 09, 2005

adoontourious,
It says when you're eating a watermelon, not when you cut one. You don't eat the green part to get to the red part which you eat, b/c then you'd be eating the whole thing!

Strawberry works too (without nitpicky comments, clue clue hint hint)

I thought it was kinda obvious, but it got approved, which is more than any of my teasers can do!

i thought while using the breaks also. but watermelon is way more clever and fun. good one!
rajasekhar*
Jun 09, 2005



Quite a good one. But I thought that in cricket, for a third umpire's decision, when a red light is flashed, the batsman is supposed to make a move towards pavillion. When a green is flashed, he is supposed to stay back.

shadowmancer626*
Jun 12, 2005

while i hate to be scrupulous , when you eat a watermelon, you have to get through the green before you get to the red, to get back to the green again.ie....cut the watermelon's shell open to get to the red, and when you are done with the red, you get backto the green.

Somebody has been reading old copies of 'The Chatterbox'. It's more of an old child's joke than a teaser. But, was fun seeing it again.

What's is Imurray problem...a twisted teaser in two languages?

I was somewhere near Candyland, too. Some child's b oard game must work that way.
ShaelaEsther
Jun 09, 2006

When you're color-blind. Color-blindness is most often assosciated with being unable to distinguish the difference between red and green--more rarely blue or yellow.

So, if you came to a stop-sign, since red and green are the same to you, you might think "Hey, I'm stopping at a green sign, and then starting at a red one."

Does that count? Hehehe. Watermelon is a more fitting answer.
scallioAus*
Jun 09, 2006

Nice one! I was thinking about the games Aggravation and Lugo. The person with the green marbles would start on the red spot and finish when their marbles were all in their green "home".

Though we normally start with red and stop on white before reaching green, when we eat watermelon, don't we?

SweetPotatoAus*
Jun 09, 2007

My answer was "at a crosswalk." You cross on green and stop on red.

My first answer was "when you're car number 15 or more at a traffic light ... have you ever seen the light up ahead turn green, but you don't start moving until it's red again ... Then you don't stop until it has turned green?

For you watermelon people who want to get technical ... the "white" is actually a very pale green.

precious1026Aus*
Jun 10, 2010

What makes this Teaser entertaining is the fact that the Creator Makes most people Think in a Well Organized Pool of Suggestions. Red equal Stop in most societies and in most Traffic signalling, While Green means Yes, Go, Approval and so on. Now, Red and Green where food is concern makes the Teaser truly funny. However, as with the Logicians or Creators Common Concepts in society that require the Masses to Follow a Train of thought or Reasoning can actually STand the Test of Time, except in this senario, the creator of the Teaser would have Us to believe, is an Error: Green STILL means Go--> the cutting into the Watermelon to proceed to the Goodness of the Fruit. Red in this Senario Means not stop, but to proceed to the Sweetness of the Fruit. Societal Meaning for Red, Stop, wrong, negative, on the other hand, sweet, goodness, life's flow. Not Stop as you would have us to believe. But you are correct for the Color scheme of Red as it relates to one Subject area of Mass Thinking. I know. Don't bother yourself too much. You, keep writing Teasers that we can enjoy...
