Teaser Tell All Turkey Edition…..

Standard

“Hello Students – It’s TELL ALL TIME!”

Just when we think we’ve thrown you the curve ball to end all curve balls with a Teaser photo – someone bounces in with the correct answer in no time in spite of our dire predictions of a DIFFICULT Teaser.    So much for our predictions!     But let’s start with what we ALWAYS start with – the FIRST COMMENTER……………..

“I bet it was ME ME ME!  I popped my head out of my groundhog hole and didn’t see anyone!”

That’s probably because you popped out way before 8:05AM which was when we went live.   Stanley you made the effort though and we appreciate it.

SO back to where we were – could we have a drumroll please?

Well it’s a tad early for a Christmas drummer – but what the heck……

OUR FIRST COMMENTER WAS INGRID

And here’s your badge Miss Ingrid:

I was the early bird (turkey) FIRST COMMENTER at Teaser class on November 22, 2022.

THEN – we waited and waited but not long – before we had our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER………GUESS WHO IT WAS……….GO ON – GUESS!

YEP – IT WAS MISS INGRID AGAIN!

A double win – here’s your second badge:

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Turkey Teaser of November 22, 2022 !!

HERE’s the Teaser photo she guessed:

Our Teaser photo was sent in by Mr. Frank – one of our students!    Here’s his description of this place:

“This is a photo of the Meigs County Courthouse – in Pomeroy OH.  It’s unique – and I think the only one of its kind. It is 3 stories … no big deal …. but each floor is directly accessible for the outside. That is, there’s is a 1st level door to the outside …. and a second level door to the outside (no steps or stairs) … directly onto the ground …. and the same for the third floor.  When looking at the front of the courthouse, this has nothing to do with the two sets of steps you see going upward. The second floor door is on the right side of the building … the third floor is on the back side. Because of the terrain/land around the courthouse, a person can walk directly into the building into all three floors.”

Here are some additional photos Mr. Frank sent in to show the unusual set up with the three floors and separate entrances – pretty cool looking!

Our Thanks to Mr. Frank for the cool photos – by the way this is in Mr. Frank’s hometown !!

For you Mr. Frank with our thanks:

I was the Guest Teaser on the Thanksgiving Teaser post of November 22, 2022!

And a DOUBLE WIN special badge for Ingrid:

I was a DOUBLE WINNER (First Comment and First Right Guess) on the Teaser post of Nov. 22, 2022!!

Now if you ALSO guessed the Teaser photo correctly you get this:

I guessed the Teaser correctly on Nov. 22, 2022 but I was NOT FIRST RIGHT GUESSER! Oh well….

If you were WRONG with your guess – you still win a badge!

I was wrong with my guess on the Teaser post of November 22, 2022 but I still got a badge!!

Cheer Team?   It’s your turn to shine!

Hip Hip Hooray!
What can we say?
Badges galore
From ceiling to floor!
Ingrid was FIRST RIGHT
Only one here – there was no fight!
SURPRISE SURPRISE
Ingrid is so wise
FIRST RIGHT GUESS TOO
We’re not kidding you!
We hope your Thanksgiving is very yummy
With lots of good food for a happy tummy!

Thanks ladies – I hope all those turkeys you’re carrying are heading to the cafeteria line to feed all the hungry students, the Cat School staff, and even the cafeteria staff.   We all should enjoy each other’s company and remember all the things we have to be thankful for…………………………!!

“Greetings Students and Staff – your holiday meal is READY!”

THE MENU:

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Your Professors…………AND School Staff

 

Tuesday Teaser for Thanksgiving!

Standard

“Team – good job rounding up all the loose turkeys…..I think these turkey hats helped us blend in with them and made it easier – now let’s go report in to the professors!”

Greetings Students!   Happy Almost Thanksgiving Tuesday!   

HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET?

Welcome to class and since we’re almost to the BIG day, we thought we’d do things up right with some Thanksgiving decorations – even the Security Team joined in by wearing turkey hats – now that’s real dedication isn’t it?     We have to say that we have a GUEST TEASER today that is probably as close to impossible to figure out as any photo we’ve ever used in class.    Yes we aren’t kidding.   You’ll see shortly BUT FIRST – let’s do rules and our special THANKSGIVING BADGES shall we??

FAR OUT BADGES GRAPHICS DEPARTMENT!

Yes our Graphics Department gets a 40 lb. turkey to take home to fix for her family as a special thank you!    Of course she has to catch it first…………………

Now let’s move on to the Teaser shall we?    As we said, it’s a whopper.    It really will be a miracle if anyone gets it.     But we’re giving it a whirl anyway.   Ready?

Where Was This Photo Taken????????????

“You’re right – this is practically impossible!”

Well give it your all – and our Cheer Team will help cheer you up for the challenge!

Here we are looking silly
Tossing turkeys willy nilly
It’s our duty to be all cheery
But keeping this headgear straight makes is weary!
Anyway we wish you lucky as you study and guess
Your Professors expect perfection and deserve no less
We are thankful for the Profs, all of you, and Miss D
Now lets all head to the cafeteria for a lunch that’s FREE!

Sounds like a good idea to me ladies…………….class – let’s go eat!    Maybe we all need a little BRAIN food to guess that Teaser today……………………

Greetings Class!  It’s time to relax and enjoy your Thanksgiving Meal!

Good Luck Students!   See you at TELL ALL tomorrow!

Your Professors

 

 

Teaser Tuesday Class Time!

“Gosh team – Fall is falling isn’t it…..but all is well on campus!”

“Good Morning Students!   HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET??”

Next Tuesday we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving week and that’s when we’ll be previewing our new Thanksgiving Badges for you to win AND probably we will have had time to decorate the classroom.    But for today – we have a Graphics Department Teaser photo for you and some Fall Badges so LET’S GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD!!

“Let’s do this!!”

First the rules that will apply for today’s Teaser guessing:

AND the lineup of Fall badges:

“Promise you’ll have some DECENT special badges next week?  Huh?”

Well we do promise but you might find yourself with a dunce cap on if you’re not careful little missy!!

“Trust me….you don’t wanna wear this thing – it’s tight and gives me a headache!”

Here comes our Photo Security Guard with today’s PHOTO……………………ready?

“Here’s today’s photo Professors”

Where in the world was this photo taken??????

OK everyone……………….do your best and maybe you’ll win a badge and of course the admiration of the whole rest of the class for being SMART enough to figure it out!    And if you need some ENCOURAGEMENT – let’s bring on the CHEER GIRLS!

Another Tuesday and another chance to win
If you know your geography give that globe a big spin!
We just know we wouldn’t want to live there
Don’t see a single person ANYWHERE.
But all you have to do is guess where it is
Now we’ll get out of your hair and let you “get down to biz!”

Thanks girls……………….I’m sure the class has been inspired to do their best thanks to your inspiring cheer.

“I wasn’t inspired…….I thought it was a boring cheer!”

OK OK – now let’s take a break and head to the cafeteria for lunch.   That always cheers everyone up!!

“Welcome Students – step right up and choose your meals!”
