Simple and elegant. Wonderful teaser.

Very clever. I never would have come up with it, and yes, Grandpapete it did enter my mind, but I dismissed it immediately as not appropriate for Braingle. Really really good teaser, Cas.

My guess was a bit of stretch, but I thought it was con down (condone). But I like actual answer much better. That was good!

I thought it was "knock-up"
wandering_goat*
Aug 08, 2007

I guessed "falcon".
FatHeadAus*
Aug 08, 2007

Gee, I thought it was "condone" as in "con down".
Musikman212*ca*
Aug 08, 2007

very good, no matter what the detractors say.
chaskey*us*
Aug 08, 2007

Excellent! The detractors are jealous.
funnygirl25Aus*
Aug 08, 2007

very nice!
guessimtoosmart
Aug 08, 2007

Um, "condone" is not pronounced "con down". That's why it doesn't work for the answer.

Nice teaser.
chaskey*us*
Aug 08, 2007

Fredonia, try to descend a firepole doing it your way--it will not work.
javlad27Aus*
Aug 08, 2007

I thought it was convert
2ndhandroseca*
Aug 08, 2007

Doehead: I like your play on words there.

I didn't get it. Knew it had to do with down but descent didn't enter my head

GOOD ONE !!!!!!!!

Aug 08, 2007

That's so funny! It took me about five minutes of staring at the screen to get it! Good one!!

Aug 08, 2007

Hahahaha! I had to read it a couple times before I got it, but it was really fun! 2 thumbs up!

I, too, thought it was convert.

Never thought of condescending (until I saw the answer, of course!)

Very clever. But could it also have been "long con"?
juju1946*
Aug 10, 2010

good one. I though it was nocturne.
juju1946*

ROCStorm*
Aug 10, 2010

i said "knock up" too
Babe*
Aug 10, 2013

Good one! I guessed the same as some others, but this was a good one and there are always the same people who say it was easy. I don't believe them at all, but it makes them feel better and smarter than the rest of us, so I will just smile and wink!
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 10, 2013

Clever - I liked this one! Thanks!
doeheadAus*
Aug 10, 2013

6 Years ago I said this was easy. Nothing has changed, not even the teasers. People wanted me back, so here I am my usual grumpy complaining jerk.
eighsseAus*
Aug 10, 2013

Lol, that was a good one. I, like others (only jokingly), came across "knock up" in my figuring. Tried thinking of all kinds of "con-fall" "con-down" ideas, but never did get to "con-descending." Good one!
Boldcommander*
Aug 23, 2013

Lol, I thought it would be "knock up", as in beating somebody up. I really need to stop playing street fighter...
