That may be the first rebus teaser I've actually liked! 1 out of 810 isn't bad, is it?

Very nice. Like Bobbrt said, one of the best rebuses yet. KERCHOO!

Gets my vote too Para.. great work. Awww Bobb, I thought you might have at least liked some of mine . Heh heh.

Well, I agree with bob. I dont like much rebuses, thats probably why i only have a few of them. That was my favorite rebus yet!

good 1

I like most rebuses but this one is one of my favourites

Don't worry, D. I was exaggerating. There must be at least SIX rebuses out there that I like. Who knows...maybe the other five are yours.

I too would like to voice my praise of this rebus. There are quite a lot of rebuses (should that be rebi?) that don't really challenge the grey matter too much, but this one did. Very well thought rebus. I hope it was an original...

I liked this one!!

i don't like rebuses but this is good

I've seen this one before

Too easy.

I like this one! :-) I got it! hehe

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO DIDN'T GET THIS TEASER? WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME WHAT PRIME RIBS MEAN? sorry for the lack of knowledge...

i dont get it either, einat...darn!

Prime numbers

I get the prime numbers, I just don't understand what prime ribs are

hey eniat16 prime rib is a prime cut of meat (really good meat)

thanx... :-)

Hey this one a good one, I dodn't get it but hey I don't put much thought in rebus so wasn't expecting much BUT this was really good made me wish I would have thought about it!

*thinks* Many people have the brain that I do not have. I shall go and ponder some more. Oo;

Pretty brilliant. Added it to my favourites!

Gmoney-Gdog and einat16 Im with you I dont get it eather but Im sure I would if I got it

brought a smile onto mu face

Nice, but I recommend using this ~ in stead of - because they turn out like this:

I like it... not many of em are good but that one is

I got it as well. Prime Ribs is a special cut of steak that is very delectable, and thus expensive and very sought after. Good one.

I really liked the teaser, but actually I thought it was really easy... I love Prime Ribs!

Which numbers are the PRIME ones?

Nov 13, 2003

Clever, very clever

This is GREAT! it is quite possibly my favorite teaser ever

That was sooooooooooooo cool. easy, but cool.

Prime numbers are numbers that only have two factors.(Factors are numbers that are multiplied to get a product. A product is the answer to a mutiplication problem.) Those two factors would be 1 and the number itself.Nice one!

nice 1

IT WAS SO SIMPLE AND EASY THAT EVEN A BABY COULD SOLVE IT. CMON COME UP WITH SOMETHING TOUGH.

good thinking!!!!

I liked that 1 not a very big rebus fan ethier

very good... easy, but good. fun too!

this was a great teaser.. I added it to my favorites.. good job.

NICE!!

[two thumbs up]

That was a good teaser.

Oh that was awesome in my favourites for sure

This was FUN and HARD, stated $ourDough

I guessed spare ribs. I did not know that the symbol given meant prime.

Jeieie... Knew the prase but answered 'prime rib'... Almost...

A prime teaser that tickled my ribs. Easily solved.

katamaster: There's no symbol in this rebus for prime. There are arrows pointing to Ribs numbers 2, 3, 5, and 7, which are all prime numbers. Thus, Prime Ribs.

I liked this one. Got it in a heartbeat, and it's always nice to start my day with a success!

Isn't 1 a prime number too?

kwelcans, I learned that 1 is prime and felt no arrow to it was misleading. Surprised that no one else pointed that out, so maybe I remember wrong.

That is a really good rebus!!! Oh, and BTW if anyone wants to know, 1 is not a prime number.

Hmm. I did a little research, and apparently, 1 is NOT a prime number. I guess you learn something new every day.

Why is 1 not a prime number?

This was a good teaser!

This was a good teaser!

I totally didn't get it. Boy am I embarassed. Thanks for posting.

The reason 1 is not considered a prime number is because it would mess with prime factorization. Every composite (non-prime) number has a unique prime factorization. For example, the prime factorization of 6 is 2x3. If 1 was considered prime, you could say 2x3x1, 2x3x1x1, etc.

Also, a prime number is generally defined as having TWO factors, 1 and itself. Since 1 IS itself, it only has ONE factor, so it is not a prime.

Very nice! This one took me a while. Great job!

Too easy, but supercute!

Nice one!

Nice one!

Awesome.

Wait a minute! Isn't 1 a prime number too?

Brain23, see the comments above you.

Oh, I thought the answer was 'spare ribs'

that was fun i think we should all do won of these

Thanks, Kwelchans, for your explanation.

Did not have a clue.

That's one of the best I've seen!

This was a lot easier than I like rebuses to be but it was a lot of fun.

haha good one

I rarely enjoy a rebus, but this one I really liked. Was easy but very enjoyable.

Very good!

WOW!!!! A new teaser that's never been on here before. Hi to GW

Someone's being cute - and that's nice!! It was a good teaser and I'm sure if I knew a tiny bit more about math I would have gotten the answer! Have a great day this beautiful Sunday!!

Just outstanding! I really laughed.

I thought it was a BOXING MATCH!

4 LEFTS TO THE RIBS!

4 LEFTS TO THE RIBS!

Fun rebus! Only one thing puzzles me, I thought Prime Rib is both singular and plural. I never heard it referred to as Prime Ribs with an 's'.

Count me among those who did not get or understand it. I guess we were not taught the same things when I went to school eons ago. This one was way over my head.

Did not solve this one, but I did grill ribs last night.

MMMM, Prime Rib, I think I need to go shopping.YUM!

Babe - the numbers that had arrows by them (2,3,5, and 7) are all Prime Numbers (a number >1 whose only no positive divisors are 1 and itself).

PS - Jaycr, you do know that prime rib and ribs are completely different right? Prime Rib is an expensive cut of roast. The last one we bought (2 bone) cost $40+ and was just enough to feed 4 adults with no left overs.

Think it is about time to do another dinner party now.

Since I'm still in my prime, I got it immediately.

When I saw the answer, I said to myself, "some types will love this." Looking at the comments I was right. It's good, but I like puzzles where you can get them without needing to know another fact. Like if you weren't "up" on your math terms, it was impossible.

This teaser was so good I decided to make an account after about two years of coming here without an account.

Thank you for the teaser.

Thank you for the teaser.

I was totally lost on this one. Shame on me.

Good to see you, Auntie Sis! This puzzle is not my thing. People either got it and loved it, or didn't! Loved the comments!

Thanks Habs, yes I know the difference between prime ribs and ribs. One I'll grill, the other one I can't afford.

Cute! Got it the minute I noticed which "ribs" were being pointed to.

That was a pretty awesome rebus!

Sweet teaser! I didn't get it on the first try, but loved the answer...creative!

Fun, easy and entertaining teaser. I got it right away. I majored in math for a time while I was in college and always loved the subject. I new the numbers pointed to in the rebus were prime numbers, but I can see where some might have difficulty if they are not familiar with mathematical terms.
