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

Posted by Bobbrt on Jul 10, 2002

The # sign looks like a tic-tac-toe game.

Posted by on Jul 10, 2002

Awesome teaser. Great job!

Posted by Jasin on Jul 10, 2002

Not bad at all but I think that the #3 should have been given a better hint.

Posted by andy1608 on Jul 11, 2002

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 OsgoodeLaw on Jul 16, 2002

Wow, impressive teaser.

Posted by sk8babe on Jul 17, 2002

it's a little confusing as keyboards vary but most of the clues match all keyboards...gd1!!!!!!! woooooo!!

Posted by dsquared on Jul 21, 2002

Liked it

Posted by strawberrihonei on Jul 26, 2002

to piffle, it looks like a tic tac toe board

Posted by heavenlycupcake on Jul 27, 2002

That was a cool teaser

Posted by zangel3000 on Jul 28, 2002

That's a pretty cool teaser! When I was looking at all the buttons 2 c wut u meant, I got confused on number 3, but now I understand it. Over all, it was gr8!

Posted by Master_of_Mindz on Aug 02, 2002

quite clever

Posted by on Aug 02, 2002

I really liked this teaser - thanks! As for a possible clue for #3, how 'bout "I get pounded every once in awhile" or something like that?

Posted by chaos on Aug 02, 2002

That is very clever, took me a while to figure out.

Posted by farrell2k on Aug 02, 2002

I'm just not getting it... What am I missing here?!

Posted by c13urly on Aug 02, 2002

This is so difficult as to be absurd.

Posted by flynn on Aug 02, 2002

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 on Aug 09, 2002

i feel the same way as andy... english keyboards hav £ as 3!!!! but it woz a gd riddle apart from that!

Posted by megnsvar on Aug 14, 2002

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 megnsvar on Aug 14, 2002

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 megnsvar on Aug 14, 2002

Everyone says they didnt' get number 3. It was the only one that really made sense to me!!!!

Posted by bmotts on Aug 15, 2002

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

Posted by doggyxp on Aug 22, 2002

once i read the answer, i understood the entire puzzle. it all made sense. Nice work.

Posted by einat16 on Aug 31, 2002

really nice teaser

Posted by shinguards on Sep 15, 2002

Very clever!

Posted by tissue on Aug 02, 2003

Brilliant, one of the best I've seen so far.

Posted by mwpoohbear1 on Aug 07, 2003

very creative!

Posted by Mastermind90 on Feb 26, 2004

Very Cute! You'll go far in the Braingle business!!!!!

Posted by jacintan on Aug 02, 2004

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.

Posted by twixy on Aug 05, 2004

very creative.

Posted by goldmare on Jan 21, 2005

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!

Posted by dutchymonster on Sep 03, 2005

I got the #3 clue but my (UK) keyboard has "£" above #3.

But the rest worked fine

Posted by sudokulvr on Sep 03, 2005


Posted by redraptor50 on Oct 08, 2005

This was a great teaser, although I got it wrong, keep them coming

Posted by bballer21 on Oct 08, 2005

this is an awesome teaser!!!!!!!! i don't get why everyone cant get the third one- it makes perfect sense!

Posted by teshka on Oct 08, 2005

pretty GOOOD

Posted by smarty_blondy on Oct 08, 2005

Very nice and creative. Keep them coming.

Posted by lindquist_25 on Oct 08, 2005

Oh I get it now!!! Yay!!

Posted by lindquist_25 on Oct 08, 2005

Good job, by the way.

Posted by redneck_woman on Oct 08, 2005

Wow, am I impressed with this one!
It is was so obvious once I looked at the answers...

Posted by jabdr on Oct 08, 2005

Great teaser. Clever...Loved it.

Posted by Aarghonauts on Oct 08, 2005

That was great! I liked #3's clue so don't listen to those nay-sayers. There just jealous they didn't think of it!!

Posted by thommie on Oct 08, 2005

HMMMMMMM..........Had me stumped, I thought I had the right answer all along!!!! YAY!!!!!!!

Posted by maximo3491 on Oct 08, 2005

wonderful, had no clue whatsoever great teaser

Posted by jimmyb on Oct 08, 2005


Posted by jimmyb on Oct 08, 2005

Posted by kpasd on Oct 08, 2005

Posted by Toink- on Oct 08, 2005

I have an Olympia and has a dollar sign on top of 3 and a pound sign on top of 4 and an underline on top of 6 and an aposthrophe on topof 8. But it was a nice one

Posted by chipmunklover on Oct 08, 2005

that was sooooooo awsome i loved it, very creative
and i would've never thaught of the number sign to be a tic tac toe board!

Posted by PCDguitar on Oct 08, 2005

bery good

Posted by spoiled_rotten on Oct 08, 2005


Posted by thimblenoggin on Oct 08, 2005

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

Posted by turtlesrock44 on Oct 08, 2005

i dont see how pple didnt get 3 that was the easiest 1

Posted by POPS on Oct 08, 2005

WOW!!!!!!!!!! Where did you come up with that one Great teaser,Great JOB

Posted by precious1026 on Oct 08, 2005

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 johnnydeppfan on Oct 08, 2005

I love it!!!! Def. on my favorites list.

Posted by prettygurl on Oct 08, 2005

I had to read the comments to get it

Posted by schatzy228 on Oct 09, 2005

OUTSTANDING!,,the only thing that could make this better was dede's comments ,,,this one definitely goes to my fav list

Posted by PENANDINK on Oct 09, 2005

I give you a 100 on your creativity! Go U

Posted by zigthepig on Oct 09, 2005

Lol iLOVED it this is going in ym faves!

Posted by WildWildHeart on Oct 10, 2005

Doesn't work if you're in France!

If you press shift you get the numbers, if you don't press shift you get:

.... Thanks

Posted by cuteandditzy on Oct 10, 2005

It took me awhile and I still did'nt get it. Alot of fun though.

Posted by Haylie1506 on Oct 10, 2005

odd...but interesting!

Posted by boriqua on Oct 11, 2005


Posted by Erinath on Oct 12, 2005

Very clever - though it's a shame it doesn't work for everyone (3 for me is a £)

Posted by michelle3617 on Oct 16, 2005

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 miyukina on Dec 21, 2005

just can always try but will never be able to satisfy everyone everywhere everytime...
anyways, my kb shows me these:
on 0, there's only hiragana 'wo' on it...

Posted by OldChinaHand on Oct 08, 2006

A fine teaser doing what a teaser does best, if it got you it got you, if you got it you got can't change it, but you can contribute your own teasers. We're always up for your challenge.

Good teser, thanks.

Posted by bobiscool134 on Oct 08, 2006

That was awesome! It took me awhile to get it

Posted by lmurray on Oct 08, 2006


Posted by Badger on Oct 08, 2006

I would've, could've, should've... My nose is still sore from the answer biting me on it!
GOOD ONE! Thanks for submitting.

Posted by jr_whiz on Oct 08, 2006

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!

Posted by Pizzazz2u on Oct 08, 2006

A fantastic teaser. I taught something close to this one to my sister, 30 years ago! A good one for kids to figure out, if you can get them in the mood.

Posted by bradon182001 on Oct 08, 2006

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!!

Posted by FeaerFactorY666 on Oct 08, 2006

very nice!!

Posted by jabdr on Oct 08, 2006

A@RG*H&!% Logic? I have no logic. Great teaser _ Makes me want to weep with chagrin at not getting this one.

Posted by djtalckerb on Oct 08, 2006

AWESOME! So entertaining....but I thought it was a tough one! Thanks!

Posted by student_driver1 on Oct 08, 2006

u have mad teaser skillz...lolz
great teaser tho, i liked it

Posted by Tryer on Oct 08, 2006

Got it after reading everybody's comments... otherwise I was baffled And my keyboard has a £ as the 3 otherwise a clever teaser

Posted by bluejubba on Oct 08, 2006

amazing, it was very original and i can;t say i like this type of puzzle but you made it interesting.


Posted by schmedley9 on Oct 08, 2006

That one was pretty good. I like the !@#$%^&*()part. Nice one.

Well I'm hungary,
I am gonna eat
I am gonna eat a sandwich


Posted by schmedley9 on Oct 08, 2006


Posted by FatHead on Oct 08, 2006

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 tdbrsun on Oct 08, 2006

creative, and I was completely stumped until I looked at the answer. Nice going

Posted by syracuse945 on Oct 08, 2006

o wow, th@ was NYS... awsum job... definitli a fave...

Posted by suganue on Oct 08, 2006

WOW!! Great job. I was stumped. Loved it

Posted by willymapo on Oct 08, 2006

That is SOOOOO unfair....

I actually have a spanish keyboard , so keys are:

Well, very funny anyways

Posted by kaakramer on Oct 08, 2006

Very cute. I didn't get this one though. :-(

Posted by luvdoritos706 on Oct 09, 2006

that was wierd....didnt get it.....but very interestin

Posted by ADSrUS on Oct 09, 2006



Posted by vlerma on Oct 09, 2006

Excellet job, just made me feel extremely stupid tho. Really creative. More please.

Posted by drussel3 on Oct 12, 2006

Awesome, going on MY FAVORITES.

Posted by Qrystal on Oct 13, 2006

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.

Good one!

Posted by RRAMMOHAN on Oct 16, 2006

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!

Posted by dalfamnest on Oct 08, 2009

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 , 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.

Posted by doehead on Oct 08, 2009

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!!!!

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.

Posted by auntiesis on Oct 08, 2009

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.

Posted by FreeSarah on Oct 08, 2009

That was cute and simple. ;)

Posted by FatHead on Oct 08, 2009

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 UptheHill on Oct 08, 2009

Nice one!!!

Posted by patiencewithaP on Oct 08, 2009

Wouldn't have gotten it in a million years...great teaser!

Posted by craniac on Oct 08, 2009

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 avonma on Oct 08, 2009

I didn't get that...even with the hint. It only told me what I already 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.
But, it was SO GOOD! It was hard, but I really liked the teaser!
Good job!

Posted by TZCastor on Oct 09, 2009


Posted by Babe on Oct 08, 2012

I did not like it. Nuff said!

Posted by jaycr on Oct 08, 2012

Got it.

Posted by cutebug on Oct 08, 2012

I have to agree with doehead. This one had alot of cobwebs on it.

Posted by HABS2933 on Oct 08, 2012

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 gaylewolf on Oct 08, 2012

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

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 iggy39 on Oct 08, 2012

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 princess2007 on Feb 23, 2013

This just went into my faves! I feel so dumb right now!

Posted by gaylewolf on Oct 08, 2015

I LOVE this one! Thanks!

Posted by geneHAG on Dec 07, 2016

The answer was right @ my fingertips!
