Nice one! Used the clue. Still didn't get it. Maybe I'm a little dumb, but I had to rate it hard.

you might want to put volume level then in () write (sound) because I thought it was like an encyclopedia. Other than that I thought it was great. I don't have enough points to edit or w/e.

Thanks Poseidon and thanks for your thoughts. I think for the moment I am still happy with it as it is.

HELP! What is Imurray saying?? What does "BUCUO" mean??

I didn't get the answer, btw.

i got zilch on this one. when i saw the answer, it was plain as day.
good teaser, lots of thought went into it. great great job.

i think murray is saying that he didn't get it. but felt he had to put something down.

I liked this one, very clever

This is for Marschie. I looked up BUCUO. Its a form of chinese & doesn't run through basic translator software. Used in slang to mean "not bad", but translates more accurately to "no fault" or "no wrong" - hope this helps!

My brain just didn't function on this one!! Had fun trying, though.

Aug 26, 2006

Why is Imurray still allowed to be here trashing all of these teasers???

This was a strange teaser for me, I got action and words, but that's all. I guess I getting old...nay, just too sober. Fine teaser dsquared.
Badger*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Got it, but how about: "My kids were playing very loudly while I was quietly trying to look something up in the dictionary"? Guess you'd have to be here. Very cute teaser! Thanks! (5)

OCH volume shows that actions are louder than words. We needed to add speaks ourselves.
Good teaser, it didn't "click" for me.
shawneeo*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Well, I got it, I got it, I got it!!! So, of course I have nothing negative to say now.

To nurob, I think its OK to leave lmurray here and just delete the really offensive ones, because then we all get a chance to kick his butt... AND, he deserves it! LOL!
bradon182001*us*

Never would have fitured it out in a million years. Still not sure I get it.This was a tricky one.
bradon182001*us*
Aug 26, 2006

Sorry for the typo. Never would have figured it out is what I meant to say.

This saying is an old one, my parents taught me this while I was growing up. And here I am, a middle aged young man. BTW, the teaser was superb! Once you truly learn this expression, it makes you wonder about other people.

Aug 26, 2006

Yayyy! I got it, too ... but not without the hint first. ThanxaMILLION, DSquared, for waking up my brain today!
NuRob and shawneeo - I don't even know how offended to be by lmurray's Chinese word. Maybe it is really BAD. I think I'll click it out of principal and past history.

I didn't get this one even after the hint. That doesn't mean that I don't like it though! I think this was great!

Never saw that one before. Original, and took some time to figure out. Great job.

Aug 26, 2006

if anyone cares, 'bucuo' literally means 'not wrong', which basically means 'not bad'.



yeah .. i didn't get this one, but my mind isn't on today.

Just when I thought I had it figured out I read the answer. Wrong! Great teraser and nice job!

Aug 28, 2006

Wow, thanks so much for all the comments. I'm guessing from the deluge of 'new comments' in my inbox that this was possibly teaser of the day a couple of days ago? I'm pleased that it was enjoyable for most. I'll have to write some more some day soon.
QrystalAca*
Aug 29, 2006

Yup, it was teaser of the day for August 26th ...

and it GOT me. I might have to accept that rebuses are not my thing. I was completely stumped. I didn't even have a guess. The hint compounded my confusion.

To others in my boat: let's just cast again, and see what random teaser we fish out next!

Anyways, I have heard the phrase before, it just didn't come to mind at all while working on this. My fault, not yours!

Excellent! I got it fairly quickly, my brain must be in gear this morning. Must have been the insanity wings I ate last night

This was a great rebus. I haven't seen one along these lines before, which is impressive for a rebus, where it seems everything has been done.

Nifty! It came to me in a blinding flash. Or was it a quiet whisper?
crazy10manAus*
Aug 27, 2009

It was a good try, but maybe volume could've been replaced with a synonym for speak? And that hint . . .

Sure kept me guessing though!
doeheadAus*
Aug 27, 2009

Good one, but words can create action.

I didn't get it. It is a good one too. Maybe next time.

I too thought volume had something to do with books and could not figure that one out. Even though it means volume loud or soft I agree it is a stretch for speaking. Oh well glad you posted it keeps on teaching me about these kind if teasers.

Aug 28, 2015

A good one & clever, but I didn't get it. What tricked me is, I didn't see anything associating the words (they are all words by the way) to "speaking," so I was imagining an answer with "above," or "below" "over" something like that. It took more imagination to get this one than I could give this morning.

The hint didn't help, the answer gave me no clue. going back to bed.
