Very good! Clever. But how do you play a game on the # sign? Other than that, I thought it was great.

Posted by Bobbrt07/10/02
The # sign looks like a tic-tac-toe game.

Posted by Jasin07/10/02
Not bad at all but I think that the #3 should have been given a better hint.

Posted by andy160807/11/02
my No.3 has the sign above it. I'm depressed, do you mean to say that the UK keyboard has a $ sign, but the US one has no ???

Posted by dsquared07/21/02
Liked it

Posted by chaos08/02/02
That is very clever, took me a while to figure out.

Posted by flynn08/02/02
This is a 9 out of 10! Great puzzle that was weakened by a couple of clues that could have been improved. (e.g. the # sign). But...congrats, I liked it!

Posted by megnsvar08/14/02
WOW!!! Iwould have never guessed that!!! It's really really good idea. It was probably easy to compose but believe me, it's not that easy to figure out!!!!

Posted by megnsvar08/14/02
You know farrell, you really shouldn't say O God... the Bible says you would be better off with an anchor tied around your neck and hands tied behind your back and be thrown into the sea then to say the Lord's name in vain

Posted by megnsvar08/14/02
Everyone says they didnt' get number 3. It was the only one that really made sense to me!!!!

Posted by bmotts08/15/02
If there's one bad keyboard teaser, I haven't heard it!

Posted by doggyxp08/22/02
once i read the answer, i understood the entire puzzle. it all made sense. Nice work.

Posted by einat1608/31/02
really nice teaser

Posted by tissue08/02/03
Brilliant, one of the best I've seen so far.

Posted by jacintan08/02/04
This was great! It never crossed my mind that it could be more than one thing until i saw the end part that said 'what are we' instead of 'what am i', but i couldn't be bothered to think of it then. Anyway, it gave me a good idea for a new teaser. :D

Posted by twixy08/05/04
very creative. :D

Posted by goldmare01/21/05
Wow that was really hard! I was clueless. Although I understood the # clue after reading the answer, it took me a few seconds to get it. Probably could have come up with a clearer hint, but overall very nicely done! :D

Posted by dutchymonster09/03/05
I got the #3 clue but my (UK) keyboard has "£" above #3. But the rest worked fine :D

Posted by sudokulvr09/03/05

Seldom is an answer so literaly right before one's eyes. Nice work. :D

Posted by turtlesrock4410/08/05
i dont see how pple didnt get 3 that was the easiest 1

Posted by POPS10/08/05
WOW!!!!!!!!!! Where did you come up with that one :roll: Great teaser,Great JOB :wink:

Posted by precious102610/08/05
:roll: :( I liked the teaser very much, but for my own edification, the number four, I am always rich is not quite true. U see ($)1.oo is not Rich. Also, the Exclamation point is not always excited. You can exclaim in Anger, or Annoyance. At any rate, this is what a teaser should be. All in all if 5ive persons answered correctly, then their truly intel. Parentheses keep it alltogether, must have two(too).

Posted by johnnydeppfan10/08/05
I love it!!!! :D :D :D Def. on my favorites list.

Doesn't work if you're in France! :evil: If you press shift you get the numbers, if you don't press shift you get: &é"'(-è_çà .... Thanks

Posted by cuteandditzy10/10/05
It took me awhile and I still did'nt get it. Alot of fun though. :oops:

Posted by Haylie150610/10/05
odd...but interesting! :)

Posted by boriqua10/11/05
Sweet :P

Posted by Erinath10/12/05
:D Very clever - though it's a shame it doesn't work for everyone (3 for me is a £)

Posted by michelle361710/16/05
I had no idea. That was really good though. By the way, you can be excited and angry at the same time. Excitement just means a lot of emotion.

Posted by miyukina12/21/05
just ok...you can always try but will never be able to satisfy everyone everywhere everytime... :wink: anyways, my kb shows me these: !"#$%&'() on 0, there's only hiragana 'wo' on it...

Posted by OldChinaHand10/08/06
A fine teaser doing what a teaser does best, if it got you it got you, if you got it you got it...you can't change it, but you can contribute your own teasers. We're always up for your challenge. Good teser, thanks. 8)

Posted by bobiscool13410/08/06
That was awesome! It took me awhile to get it

Posted by lmurray10/08/06

Posted by Badger10/08/06
I would've, could've, should've... My nose is still sore from the answer biting me on it! :oops: GOOD ONE! :lol: Thanks for submitting. :D

Posted by jr_whiz10/08/06
Maybe u have 2 b a kid to understand that 1! All i know is i understood the whole thing, especially #3. the first thing i thought was "tic tac toe board." Good teaser! :wink:

Posted by Pizzazz2u10/08/06
A fantastic teaser. I taught something close to this one to my sister, 30 years ago! :wink: A good one for kids to figure out, if you can get them in the mood.

Posted by bradon18200110/08/06
This was a tricky teaser. I never in a million years would have figured it out. It did get my mind working, it just didn't work in the right direction. Great job!! :o

Posted by FeaerFactorY66610/08/06
very nice!!

Posted by jabdr10/08/06
A@RG*H&!% Logic? I have no logic. Great teaser _ Makes me want to weep with chagrin at not getting this one. :P 8)

Posted by bluejubba10/08/06

!@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() !@#$%^&*() :D :-? :P :roll: :) 8) :oops: :wink:

Posted by FatHead10/08/06
Not bad. To be honest, though, the hint wasn't very good (sorry) which is disappointing, because I was looking forward to solving it.

Posted by tdbrsun10/08/06
creative, and I was completely stumped until I looked at the answer. Nice going :oops:

Posted by syracuse94510/08/06

Posted by drussel310/12/06
Awesome, going on MY FAVORITES.

Posted by Qrystal10/13/06
I cackled when I got this one! Loved the feeling of being stumped for a few minutes, especially about clue #7... "what kind of clue is 'And....'?!" That might've been what did it for me though. :D Good one!

Posted by RRAMMOHAN10/16/06
This is a fantastic, original teaser! The answer is just starting at our face, but many of us (including me, of course), missed it. How creative! Great job! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Posted by dalfamnest10/08/09
Fun - and original. When I saw ten clues, I thought of fingers ... and then the 10 digits ... and took my eyes off my keyboard where the answer lies :roll: , to look at what was above the digits on my calculator!! Should have persevered!! Thanks - this one's a favourite. Clues were all accurate enough to give the answer overall; you can't have one so easy that it gives the whole thing away. Thanks. :P

Posted by doehead10/08/09
It's good if this is the first time you've seen it. I'm a little tired of all the overused repeats. It's time the editors get off their(you know what) and give us some new material!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: If you want to tell me how terrible I am for the above remarks,that's OK. I got big shoulders and a thick skull. 8) 8) 8)

Posted by auntiesis10/08/09
Great teaser, I enjoyed it , probably because I got it so quickly. Just one of those things, easy if you get it, hard if you don't. :D :lol: :D

Posted by FreeSarah10/08/09
That was cute and simple. ;)

Posted by FatHead10/08/09
I figured it out the second time, but not because I remembered it (I think). But doesn't this belong in the Riddle category?

Posted by UptheHill10/08/09
Nice one!!! :P

Posted by patiencewithaP10/08/09
Wouldn't have gotten it in a million years...great teaser! :D

Posted by craniac10/08/09
I guessed it had something to do with the numbers 1 thru 0, but couldn't pin it down. But I'd never seen this teaser before, unlike the riddle wary, misnamed doehead, so it seemed to me very clever.

Posted by avonma10/08/09
I didn't get that...even with the hint. :( It only told me what I already knew...it had to do with the numbers. :( I thought the ...and...was dividing the numbers into two sides, but I couldn't make anything out of it. :evil: But, it was SO GOOD! It was hard, but I really liked the teaser! Good job! :D

Posted by TZCastor10/09/09
Brilliant

Posted by Babe10/08/12
I did not like it. Nuff said!

Posted by jaycr10/08/12
Got it.

Posted by cutebug10/08/12
I have to agree with doehead. This one had alot of cobwebs on it. :D :D

Posted by HABS293310/08/12
I also agree with Doehead (and cutebug) this teaser is over 10 years old, and based on the comment dates, it appears that it was used as "Teaser of the Day" on September 3, 2005; AGAIN a month later on October 8, 2005; October 8, 2006; October 8, 2009; and again today October 8, 2012. With the THOUSANDS of teasers on the site is it really necessary to recycle the same one on the same date every few years?

Posted by gaylewolf10/08/12
I agree with Patience with a P - I didn't get it, but I loved it. I MAY have seen it in 2009 - but I'm getting forgetful and don't remember if I've seen these puzzles before. I love the cranky comments - some people just need to vent!! LOL :wink: :) PS Some one noticed and asked me why I always sign off with a "wink" and a "smile" - very observant! One of my favorite songs by Harry Connick Jr - "A Wink and a Smile" !

Posted by iggy3910/08/12
Thought it was a calculator but knew that wasn't right. I didn't get it. I did have fun with it though. :) :) :)

Posted by princess200702/23/13
This just went into my faves! :D I feel so dumb right now! :oops:
