For each group below, fill in the blanks with two words that differ only by their first letter.

1. Stop thinking over here. Go _ _ _ _ _ _ over _ _ _ _ _ _.

2. An untrained person could be killed in these woods, but there is little _ _ _ _ _ _ for a _ _ _ _ _ _.

Brilliant teaser.

You had me stumped!

Posted by alintanfern on Jan 06, 2003

gr8 1 with rhyming answers

Posted by Mogmatt16 on Aug 22, 2004

that's odd... this one is kinda good...

Posted by ThreeTwoOne on Aug 22, 2004

I like your answer for the second sentence better than mine: matter/master. This teaser wasn't too difficult, but it exercised the brain just enough to be fun. Overall, a very clever contribution.

Posted by marigold on Feb 21, 2005

wetter with a letter? Does that work or just sound weird?

Posted by Smudge on Jun 14, 2006

The second one couldn't be matter/master as ThreeTwoOne said, because those do not differ by their first letter. Good try, though.

I got the first 2, but the third was a very nice play of words.

I give it a thumbs up

Cute and fun

Posted by marschie on Nov 29, 2006

Excellent teaser!

[Why are all the comments labeled "offensive?"]

Posted by lukeschett on Nov 29, 2006

Great teaser.
P.S. They are not offensive. You click on that if someone says something that is offensive to you.

Posted by karenokupniak on Nov 29, 2006

Can we "wonder" over "yonder" as well? This one was a lot of fun.

Posted by senthur22 on Nov 29, 2006

beautiful thought

Posted by schmedley9 on Nov 29, 2006

it was okay

Posted by bradon182001 on Nov 29, 2006

I guess its too early for me. Didn't get any unless you count "hope for a dope" for #1. That was my first thought and that is was I kept thinking.

Posted by bradon182001 on Nov 29, 2006

Oops, I meant #2, not 1.

Posted by OldChinaHand on Nov 29, 2006

A very well done teaser.

Posted by cassiemark on Nov 29, 2006

I liked that one a lot!

Posted by Pizzazz2u on Nov 29, 2006

Good teaser! Made the first one tougher on myself than it turned out to be. Keep them coming!

Posted by nikitafullmoon on Nov 29, 2006

One of those teasers that makes me go "D'OH!" Apparently I need to START Thinking Over Here! Great teaser!

Posted by scallio on Nov 29, 2006

Posted by saradove on Nov 29, 2006

I love thes kinds of teasers but I never get them. I always end up saying DUH.

Posted by jacstop on Nov 29, 2006

I love this teaser! A refreshing bit of cleverness

Posted by if_i_may94 on Nov 29, 2006

My, My, My. I hope Jenelle 74 feels better now.

Posted by cuteandditzy on Nov 29, 2006

Nice play of words. Really liked it.

Posted by Blondie116 on Nov 29, 2006

Loved it!

Posted by breathesunshine on Nov 29, 2006

Had a brain cramp on this one but it was fun anyway!

Posted by Qrystal on Nov 30, 2006

That made me giggle!! What an awesome way to start the day. Thanks!!

Posted by Qrystal on Nov 30, 2006

P.S. I wish I had "offensive" links available... zap certain people who deliberately give offense (i.e. by insulting). That's so different than giving one's opinion of a teaser.

Posted by vlerma on Nov 30, 2006

I pushed that's offensive for you Crystal as I agree some people just don't know when to be quiet. Personally I thought it was a great teaser. More please

Posted by vlerma on Nov 30, 2006

Excuse me Qrystal

Posted by doehead on Nov 29, 2009

Way to many possible answers. So I have to rate this as a very por teaser!!!

Posted by doehead on Nov 29, 2009

I should learn how to spell poor.

Posted by UptheHill on Nov 29, 2009

Nice1, Keep them coming!!!!

Posted by pbwc17 on Nov 29, 2009

those were fun...didnt get any but it was still great

Posted by brucemcdon on Nov 29, 2009

Doehead, what are some of the "way to many" possible answers?

Posted by auntiesis on Nov 29, 2009

I only got the first one.

Posted by gaylewolf on Nov 29, 2009

I didn't get any of them

but I thought they were terrific! and funny!!

Posted by Barticus on Dec 01, 2009

I couldn't get any but they are all good.

Doehead, can you give an example of another answer?

Posted by Johnny on Dec 01, 2009

The brainteaser wasn't the best
It was sort of clever

Posted by Babe on Nov 29, 2012

It would have ben nice had you explained the words were to rhyme.
I found it to be lacking in expalations Sorry

Posted by spikethru4 on Nov 29, 2012

Babe, the answers don't have to rhyme (these ones do, as it happens, but it's not necessary). They have to be spelt the same, but with a different first letter. The instructions are quite clear; maybe you didn't read them properly.

Posted by MonkeyMike on Nov 29, 2012

3 years late, but in response to Barticus. Fear and Bear for the 2nd maybe?

Posted by cutebug on Nov 29, 2012

Not my type of teaser Monkey,if you count the spaces your 4 letter answer doesn't fill 6 spaces.

Posted by jeRussell on Nov 29, 2012

For number 1 how about go 'hither' over 'dither'?

Posted by HABS2933 on Nov 29, 2012

I agree with doehead - there are a lot of possible answers for some of them.
"Fear for a bear" was good, but "hope for a dope" made me laugh.
I came up with "Think over drink" for the one that was given as "ponder over yonder".

Posted by jeRussell on Nov 29, 2012

For #2 that shoud have been go 'dither' over 'hither'. For #3- A 'brain' with a 'drain". You can figure it out. ;)

Posted by spikethru4 on Nov 29, 2012

jeRussell, nice try, but 'hither' means 'here'. You mean 'go dither over thither', which doesn't fit.

Posted by Maggiethe8th on Nov 29, 2015

although I'd done this before, I still missed the middle one regardless, I enjoyed it!

Posted by cutebug on Nov 30, 2015

Haven't seen this one since yesterday. These daily teasers are so bad lately. It is like reading the same newspaper over and over. Will the editors ever wake up ?

Posted by Zykezex on Nov 30, 2015

Got it. At first I didn't think would, but all in all it didn't take much time and fun.
