hehe, Thanks.

I got them all except for #3...never heard of the answer, but I figured out Dale would be the word in the 2nd half.

Posted by nickadeemus09/05/04
Err, and I meant to add that I really liked it!

good job great teasers

Posted by soccer_chick7007/23/05
here were my very wrong answers: #1: Liver & Ear (thought it had a body part thing going on) :-? #2: Rag & Tag (well they rhymed!) :wink: #3: Chip & Dale (the only thing I could think of was that there was some spelling error... gosh I feel stupid) :oops: #4: Rest & Terror (hey they're opposites, right?) :roll: and I got #5 right... VERY surprised I did so bad, especially considering how well I did on the first one of these! GREAT teaser but maybe I need to get some glasses... either that or a new brain! :oops: 8) :D

Posted by riddlelover07/27/05
Im sure this is a very clever riddle, but i (stupid me) :oops: cant figure it out! sorry... :(

Posted by tigershelton08/31/05
Fun! :D

Posted by realm234610/30/05
Here were my answers: 1.Live & Learn 2.Rag & Tag(smack) 3.Hill and Dale 4.Trial & Error 5.Show & Tell It took a while to get #3, and then when I saw the word "hill", I thought of a song I learned in fifth grade(and I just graduated last year). The song goes... Over hill, Over dale, as we march the dusty trail, as the cannons go marching along."(that's how it begins, anyway, and I could go go through the whole song now that I remember it). ....and in all fairness to soccer chick ,I did the same thing on a very different language teaser, but the words were still hidden(but in sentences). I was like ..#1 could also be Rice ,cream, kale...#2 could also be .....Well, you get the idea. For anyone who doesn't know, k-a-l-e is a cabbagelike vegetable which is often used as a garnish(although it is edibible, I don't recommend trying it.....I am speaking from experience here). P.S.- I still haven't looked up c-a-l-e yet. Anyway, I did the first teaser, and I got all of them right. I really like these teasers. Also, in all fairness to soccer chick, at least those words were also found within the phrases, much like my mistakes in the other teaser. If it's there, it might just be valid(just a philosophy). :D :D . Loved it!!!!

Posted by realm234610/30/05
...except for #3, but it's pretty hard if you've never heard of the words......I don't know why I thought #2 was Rag & Tag, because none of the other answers rhyme.....Think I've been looking at too many rebuses and riddles lately...Just kidding...I LOVE riddles. :D :lol: :roll:

Posted by kashby05/24/06
:D good, almost all of your teasers are great!!

Posted by GebbieRose07/25/06
Now that was easy but fun! :lol:

Posted by bluehawk07/25/06

Posted by utnative07/25/06
great teaser i like these teasers i can at least get some of them i got all but #4 i had rest and cot. i must be alot older that some of you because i know what they all are. i fell really stupid for missing #4. great, wonderful,and fun teaser. :) 8) :P :oops: :oops: :) :wink:

Posted by marschie07/25/06
I thought I got them all AND found a mistake: for 2 I had "come and gone" and THERE IS NO 'E' AT THE END OF PENTAGONE! Silly me, the phrase is come and go! :oops: :oops:

Posted by starnz07/25/06
Really enjoy these! Thanks! Keep 'em coming! :D

Posted by Badger07/25/06
Easy & Fun. Interesting, though, I can whip through the answers quickly but when I'm done I wouldn't be able to tell you a single one of the original words! I never "saw" them. Like one of those pictures where you relax your eyes and the hidden picture just appears. Kinda cool. Also looks like a little bit of generation gap on some of the phrases. My kids couldn't get "rough & tumble" on your last teaser. Never heard of it! "Hill & dale" this time. So, kids, don't feel bad bad if you missed those. Just means you're not an old dude like me! Sorry I went long... Great teaser... Keep 'em comin'! :D

Posted by feste07/25/06
Took me about two minutes to work this one out. I guess being a geezer helps.

Posted by FeaerFactorY66607/25/06

Posted by shawneeo07/25/06
I got em all, I got em all!!! yayyyy!!! :D Dont kids learn those corny American folksongs anymore, in elementary school? The person above was right about the "hill and dale" song, but they got the lyrics different, or wrong, than I learned them. Over hill, over dale We will hit The dusty trail! As those cations(sp?) Keep rolling along. For its "Hi Hi Hee" On the field artillery, Call out Your numbers loud and strong! And wherever we go You will always know That those cashuns, Are rolling along! Yes, those cayshuns Keep rolling along! I forget what "cayshuns" are, but Im pretty sure thats the right word, altho Im sure the sp. is wrong. But, the "Hill and Dale" is what's important here, I'm just overdoing it because I actually remember something! Good teaser, thanks! :D

Posted by Qrystal07/25/06
I think we shouldn't be beating ourselves up for choosing "Rag & Tag" for #2, because it IS a legit pair of words that can be joined with an '&'. When I saw them, I stopped looking, as I'm sure many of the rest of you did. "Come & Go" is good though too... Can the puzzle be modified to include the user-found alternate answers? ;)

Posted by shawneeo07/25/06
OK, I shoulda looked it up first, coz I got as much wrong as the other person! Sorry if u dont care, but heres the whole song, "the Cassion Song" Over hill, over dale As we hit the dusty trail, And those caissons go rolling along. In and out, hear them shout, Counter march and right about, And those caissons go rolling along. Refrain: Then it's hi! hi! hee! In the field artillery, Shout out your numbers loud and strong, For where e'er you go, You will always know That those caissons go rolling along. In the storm, in the night, Action left or action right See those caissons go rolling along Limber front, limber rear, Prepare to mount your cannoneer And those caissons go rolling along. Refrain: Was it high, was it low, Where the hell did that one go? As those caissons go rolling along Was it left, was it right, Now we won't get home tonight And those caissons go rolling along. Refrain caissons are either things that caskets are carried on, like a wagon type deal, or a wagon kinda thing that pulls a cannon or other big guns. Hill is a hill, and "Dale" is a valley.

Posted by bradon18200107/25/06
This was fun. I'd like to see more of these. :o

Posted by coachpisco07/25/06
A caisson, is pulled behind the wagon that pulls the cannon. It has the powder, tools and cannon balls inside it. Very good teaser. I enjoyed it. :D

Posted by RRAMMOHAN07/25/06
Pretty clever, nice and quite easy!

Posted by locutus13ds07/25/06
Good one, I only got numbe 3 wrong, I thought it was chill and ale! shows you where my mind is at.. :wink:

Posted by destinysmom07/25/06
This a great teaser fish!! The sad part is that I am ancient enough to know all of them and only got 2 right. :oops: I also stopped at rag & tag :o

Posted by iteachkids07/25/06

Posted by speedqueenkmw07/25/06
absolutely love these! Probably cuz I can get them :)

Posted by thirtysixbelow07/25/06
1. live and learn 2. rag and tag :) 3. chill and dale??? :( 4. trial and error 5. show and tell was having a little trouble until i realized they were not anagrams and that the words were not scrambled. :oops:

Posted by rhmaustin07/25/06
The comments are very amusing today. Glad we got the Caisson Song business straightened out.

Posted by Neek07/25/06
I got them all but #4 too. Thanks to those who gave the explanation. I learned something!

Posted by qqqq07/25/06
That was great fun! :D

Posted by Nellem07/25/06
nice and easy :wink:

Posted by c_rae07/25/06
This was great! Very clever! :D I will go look for your other ones; this is definitely one of my faves! 8) Do you ever have anything nice to say Imurray? You know there is an old saying about that...If you don't have anything good to say, well, I'm sure you know the rest!

Posted by unConfuseMe07/25/06
My Comment: everyone/funky (very fun) :wink:

Posted by luvdoritos70607/25/06
not bad...cant believe i didnt get come and go

Posted by tkubitz07/25/06
Both these and the last ones were too easy. Took about 90 secs and 1 min respectively. tk

Posted by scallio07/25/06
These teasers are a bit too easy. I got the same answers as FishMed. Gotta say I enjoyed the song lyrics though. Have heard the song, but didn't really know the lyrics so I sang a hearty round!

Posted by POPS07/25/06
Great teaser,only missed on NO3, Thought it might be Chip and Dale :oops: That was fun ,Goes in my fabs, thank you :wink:

Posted by syracuse94507/25/06
haha, nys... very clever... i, 2, thot 1 of m was "chip & dale"... i 4got about shakespeare... o well... def 1 of my faves... :D

Posted by jcann07/25/06
I got them all again--not quite as quickly as I did with the last one. But I really, really like these. It makes me feel good to exercise my brain without having to give up in the end. :D

Posted by Musikman21207/25/06
The instructions said ,"Two word that form a commonn phrase, with & between them." Rag & tag is not a common phrase. Rag tag is, but it doesn't have the & between. In short, all you people who think that was a good alternate answer are wrong. Sorry. GREAT TEASER. Why people can't just accept that they didn't get an answer, is beyond me.

Posted by patm07/25/06
thanks these were easy To those who do not know what a "dale" is, try adding crossword puzzles to your brain teasers--it is frequently an answer to "clearing in a valley", along with vale, dell, and glen. :)

Posted by somnambulist07/25/06
I loved this teaser, I got all of them but #3. I got dale, and I know what it is...for sure, I think this particular teaser reveals a generational gap....I've never heard this "over hill, over dale" song...but I confess a little disappointment at discovering Dale's companion in this teaser was not Chip.... :D :P

Posted by vlerma07/26/06
:D Great as usual! Fun, fun fun. Now Americans, I may be wrong but I believe the "Cassions Go Rolling Along" song is the fight song of one of our armed forces. You guys, Sgt Ammo, Fishmed, someone tell me I'm right? :roll:

Posted by Badger07/26/06
vlerma: official song of the US Army

Posted by FulanitoGM07/26/06
"Show and tell! It's just a game I play, When I wanna say... Oh, I love you!!!" That's the jam right there! Al Wilson, you're a genius...

Posted by nerdyiscool05/11/07
Harder than the first, but still amazing! Keep 'em coming, fishmed! Please?

Posted by FutureMD07/02/07
I would really like more brain teasers like these. They are so much fun!

Posted by Psychic_Master12/11/08
Great as usual fishmed. :D You should do more like these.

Posted by doehead07/25/09
Way too easy, but great for the kids. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Posted by avonma07/25/09
I really enjoyed this teaser. :D Thanks! :D It was easy for me. My grandfather used to sing it when we was working. :lol:

Posted by avonma07/25/09
...when HE was working. :oops:

Posted by JLP107/28/09
I love these, thank you! :D

Posted by Babe07/25/12
Another good one! I thought they were easy, but I am older than all of you and that is the reason I know them all. They are oldies, but goodies, and for all, of you singing the hill and dale song here is a bit of information. During World War Two the song was sung by soldiers serving in the military. I think it was the Army's song. You are welcome!!! :wink:

Posted by quads8407/25/12
Looking through the comments, I felt a lot better about getting rag & tag for #2. Got all the others right, though! However, not without some difficulty. I found "inch" in #3, "rest" in #4, & "under" in #5 and looked for something that went with it. When I couldn't find anything but suddenly found a word in the second word, I had to go back to the first word to find the pair. I'm also surprised at how many people don't know hill & dale (and think that they're people). They're types of landscape. I guess we all have our weaknesses.

Posted by gaylewolf07/25/12
Good teaser. I got them all and loved the comments! Thanks! :oops: :)

Posted by gaylewolf07/25/12
That BLUSH should be a wink! :wink:

Posted by iggy3907/25/12
fun but really easy, enjoyed it. :D :D

Posted by giuseppemccarth07/25/12
Fun One! If you didn't have to add '&' then #2 could also be "Rag-Tag"

Posted by JQPublic07/25/12
Only 1/5. :oops:

Posted by Babe07/25/15
These are my favorites and contrary to Doehead's remark, I do believe it is a little bit advanced for little kids, but that is a constant reply for any that he or she gets easily. Not all of us are that bright. At least not us kids in our second childhood. :lol: :lol:

Posted by raisin9907/25/15
easy and usual

Posted by Zykezex07/25/15
I'm familiar with all those phrases so for me it was sinchy 8)

Posted by fishmed07/26/15
Gotta do some easier ones sometimes. Glad you guys liked it.
