This teaser rocks like a boulder

I think it would be more fun if you didn't give any choices...but itz kewl anyway :)

If there's one bad abominable teaser, I haven't heard it!

Fun... clever... liked it.

I had a hunch that it was something with a bull and bomb in the word. GJ

This is more of a joke.

Good Teaser, But I Got This One Right As Soon As I Saw That It Was A Language Teaser

Posted by Smithy06/27/03
I haven't actually looked at the answer yet, but I'm assuming its abominable (A-Bomb-In-A-Bull) Nice, but too easy.

this riddle is one of my favorites!!! :wink:

Posted by ThreeTwoOne06/27/04
The solution is clever, but the riddle gives itself away. Using a thesaurus on the description might have created something trickier, e.g.: "If an uncastrated steer were to swallow a stick of dynamite strapped to a ticking clock, which word would best describe the situation?" In this case, at least you haven't said "bomb" and "bull" in both the question and the answer...still a clever ruse.

Nice teaser, but the word "scandalous" would hardly describe the situation at hand. ThreeTwoOne: I have no idea what on earth you're talking about! :-?

Posted by oosunshyneoo06/27/04
I'm happy I got it! Good, more of a joke, but good! :lol:

How can it go from the impossible yesterday to the impossibly easy today?

Posted by FatHead02/06/08
I've heard it before. And the sequel is "noble".

Posted by 2ndhandrose02/06/08
Hi ymiroc. Love the Pun but Bull's don't have Udders. Cows do. :lol: That was great, went right over my head! I really laughed :lol: when I saw the answer. Can't say that bull was full of..... Kaboom!!!!!! Ha! Ha! H! thanks for the laff eh?

Posted by kwelchans02/06/08
As puns go, this one was udderly abominable. :lol: It belongs in Wiley's Dictionary.

Posted by glou02/06/08
Nice one--probably would have been more challenging to ask "if a male cow swallows an explosive device...." rather than how it was phrased, if you wanted to make it a little more difficult.

Posted by wordmama02/06/08
Got it easily, but it gave me a laugh, always a good part of a day; thanks.

Posted by jrismyhero02/06/08

Posted by dogg6pound902/06/08
i agree it is more of a joke than it is a teaser... and having multiple choices made it way too easy :(

Posted by Madelulabelle02/06/08
I agree with ThreeTwoOne about synonyms, but it was a good teaser anyway!!!

Posted by vg67402/06/08
Clever. I'm fond of the ones that you need to look at twice for. :)

Posted by preppygirl02/06/08
if it's active.... bloody.

Posted by petey12702/06/08
Love it! I agree though it would be better with no choices. Still really cute though! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
