Tell All Class

Standard

Welcome to Tell All Class Students!

Officer Kitty reported that yesterday just before school opened, all of you waiting to get in were very orderly and considerate of each other and hardly anyone got into a fight over who was in line and who wasn’t.    We Professors want to thank you AND to tell you we all appreciate all the positive comments on the new FISH SCHOOL building and features.   It’s a nice place and we hope to be in it for many years to come!

NOW – let’s get down to business shall we?

“Yeah – let’s get on with the show – we just wanna know who gets a badge – oh – and have lunch too of course!”

Well thanks for putting us in our place Rodney.   Just don’t expect a gold star today for being polite in class!

When the doors to Fish School opened yesterday we had THREE (not seven or eight but THREE) students who arrived during the first sixty seconds school was open.    WHO?

“Did you call me????????????”

No but thanks for showing up anyway.   May we have a double drumroll as we announce our THREE FIRST COMMENTERS?

INGRID, JANET and SHARON!

Congratulations ladies – you each get one of these:

WOW! I was one of THREE First Commenters on the Teaser of July 27, 2021! Goodie for me!

Now for information about the photo from yesterday.     Our GUEST TEASER was Frank Girolami whose blog Beach Walk Reflections HERE is a most enjoyable and relaxing as well as thought-provoking blog.     He’s also a great photographer so we’re happy to have contributions from him from time to time!!!  Before we forget, let’s give him his GUEST TEASER badge…….

I was the Guest Teaser on the post of July 27, 2021!

Here’s his wonderful photo:

This is the Grand Canal in Trieste, Italy

Here’s what Frank said about this beautiful place:

“Trieste has an interesting history. It was the main port for Austria-Hungary for hundreds of years. It was given to the Italians at the end of WW1. After Italy lost in WW2, the Yugoslavs wanted it, but they were tied to the Russians, so the UN created a Free Territory of Trieste that would be policed by the Allies.  In his Iron Curtain speech (1946), Winston Churchill stated an Iron Curtain would descend “from Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic.” Therefore, some say UN establishing Trieste as a free territory was the start of the Cold War.”

Now would you like to know who was the FIRST to guess this city/country?    Let’s have another drumroll please………….

CSILLA !!!

Congratulations to you and here’s your badge:

I was the first student to guess the Teaser photo CORRECTLY on July 27, 2021. YAY FOR ME!!!

AND – if you guessed right but weren’t FIRST, here’s your badge:

Gosh I DID guess the Teaser correctly on July 27, 2021 BUT I was NOT FIRST!

Were you WRONG with your guess?    YES there’s a badge for that:

I tried but I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of July 27, 2021. I’ll try HARDER next week!

“Boo Hoo Hoo…..I never win…..maybe if I studied once in a while I’d win???”

Absolutely right Malcolm – you just need to crack open a book once in a while and learn about the world and you’d win something too!!     At least you WIN a Wrong Guesser badge.

Now let’s bring on the Cheer Team for some cheer shall we??

Thank you Frank for a Teaser that was swell
We had FOUR students who did very well.
Three were FAST and FIRST and ONE was RIGHT
All four of them are now high as a kite!
Our FIRSTIES were three ladies isn’t that swell?
Ingrid, Janet and Sharon rang the WINNER BELL!
Then our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER showed up at the door
Miss Csilla has been FIRST RIGHT many times before!
Everyone did well for the first FISH SCHOOL Teaser
Thanks to Frank for a real TEASER PLEASER!

“Anyone who is overly depressed they didn’t get a badge, please stop by the dispensary”

So I guess all we have left now is to head to lunch – ready?   What a dumb question – of course you are – let’s go!

Day Two of Fish School….you know the routine – bring your try up to the line and enjoy a fabulous lunch!

Great Class everyone!   See you all NEXT Tuesday for more TEASER FUN!

All Aboard!

Tuesday Teaser In The New School!

Standard

It’s Tuesday and Time For Our First Class In the New School!

Looks like all is well on the grounds – let’s report to the Professors………….

Hello Students!   HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET?

So here we are in the new Fish School – and a mighty beautiful building it is.    Our Security Staff says we’re good to go and Miss Kitty said there was not a pushing/shoving crowd at the door this morning.      Everything is spick and span and squeaky clean and new.    We think it looks wonderful and it’s so much bigger than the Sheep School was.    They’re still working on the school grounds and plantings, etc. but probably in the next few weeks everything will be all settled back in.

MEANWHILE, we’re here for Teaser Tuesday so let’s get things underway shall we?

“I’m still staring at the new classroom – it’s PAWSOME!!”

Here are the rules and the badges for this week:

“Did somebody mention badgers???”

“No guys – they said BADGES!!”

So today’s Teaser is a GUEST Teaser.    Our Graphics Department has plenty to do these days with the new school and everything so we gave her them a break and went with a Guest Teaser today.    Are you ready to see it???    Let’s go for it!!

Reporting for duty Professors…..Here’s the photo!

WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN????   Remember the rules – must have town/city and either state (if USA) or country (if not USA)!

“WOWZERS….lookit all the boats!!”

Now the Cheer Team will debut their BRAND NEW outfits – these they like – they designed them on their own without any interference from any students or School Administration and we think they did a good job.   Anything is better than those orange fish suits they had LAST week – right?     Ladies – take it away!

Hip Hip Hooray!
We’re swimming by to say
We really like the new school
It’s totally fabulous and cool
Now try to win today’s Teaser
Be the FIRST to be a Fish School Pleaser!
Give it all you got
FISH SCHOOL Students are HOT!!

Nice cheer ladies……..you obviously like your new outfits and we must admit you look very ladylike and pretty in your fish scales and fins.

“Pretty?  I think they look HOT!”

So what do you say we march off to the new cafeteria and enjoy lunch in the new Fish School Cafeteria????     Meanwhile, remember you have to come back to class to work on the Teaser so don’t overeat and require a nap!

Hello Students!   What a beautiful new cafeteria we have…..enjoy your FIRST lunch!

OUR MENU:

Good Luck Students!!!!   See you in school tomorrow for BADGES!

Your Professors, Angel Sammy and Teddy

Teaser Tell All Class

Standard

Welcome to the Tell All Class!

Hello students.    I know many of you expected to come back yesterday to the new Ding Dong Fish School but of course construction takes time.    Things are moving along SWIMMINGLY (hahaha) though so by next Tuesday we should be moved into our new classroom in the new school.

In the meantime, let’s talk about yesterday’s Teaser.    Seems we thought it would be tough and it wasn’t because fairly soon after we went live not only did we have FIVE FIRST COMMENTERS (eek but better than last week’s 7) but we had our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER.

“I wanted to be a First Commenter but I missed the bus yesterday!   Mom’s fault!”

Let’s start by letting you know who the FAST FIRSTIES were……………………..can we get a drumroll please???

OUR FIRSTIES WERE:

INGRID, SHARON, TIMMY, JACKIE and JANET!

WOOO HOOO for the Fasties!

Each of you gets a badge:

WOW – I was one of FIVE First Commenters on the Teaser post of July 20, 2021! We’re FAST!

“I was FAST but not the right kind of FAST!!”

Then we showed you the Graphics Department photo that was HOPEFULLY going to be a toughie but wasn’t…………………

There was a HINT in this photo that our Graphics Department didn’t see which MAY have helped figure this one out – there’s a German flag on a balcony.   OOPS.    So this photo is of a most interesting place – a “spa town” – called BAD KREUZNACH in Germany!   VERY interesting place and if you’d like more info just CLICK HERE.

And WHO was the lucky duck who figured out WHERE this photo was taken first?     Another drumroll please…………

Ingrid (yes….again!)

Congratulations Ingrid and this badge is for you!

Well I managed to be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER (again!) on the Teaser post of July 20, 2021. YAY FOR ME!

If you also got this right – and several of you did – you also get a badge…………….please feel free to copy this one for YOU:

I was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser post of July 20, 2021 but I was NOT first. Maybe I’ll be FASTER at guessing NEXT week!

AND if you guessed but were WRONG – well – you know – you get this one:

I tried….I really did….but I guessed WRONG on the Teaser photo of July 20, 2021. I’ll do better next week I’m SURE!

“I plan to get a FIRST RIGHT FISH badge next week!”

And you know the Cheer Team in their…………well…………….interesting cheer costumes are here to cheer our winners:

These costumes aren’t gonna make the grade
They’re more sour than lemonade!
Next week we’ll have some with more class
They’ll have a lot more sass!
For now let’s talk about the Teaser
There were FIVE FIRSTIES which was quite a pleaser!
Ingrid, Sharon, Jackie, Janet and Timmy
If we had spangly costumes we’d do the shimmy!
Then we had our FREQUENTLY RIGHT GUESSER
She keeps her winner’s crown in her dresser!
Ingrid struck it rich with being RIGHT
Her Teaser Award collection is quite a sight!!!

Congratulations to all our winners and even to our losers……………..we are always happy to see you in class every Tuesday to see the Teaser photo and make a guess and HOPEFULLY win a badge.    Next week we’ll have our new school, new Cheer Team costumes, a new cafeteria, and a new classroom!      For now though – let’s head to the CURRENT cafeteria for lunch shall we?????

We will miss this cafeteria and kitchen but the new one will be wonderful – enjoy your LAST lunch in Ding Dong Sheep School Cafeteria!

Teaser Tuesday Time

Standard

“All is Well Officer Kitty – it’s going to be strange to be patrolling a fish when we get the new school isn’t it!”

HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET?

“Good Morning Students!   The new school is well underway but until the fish is ready, we’ll be in our old school classroom figuring out TEASERS!”

“We ARE curious to see what it’s like studying inside a fish……”

We’re wondering if Miss Dingleberry will have more FISH items on the cafeteria menu when we move………….in the meantime let’s show rules for Teaser AND the badges on offer shall we??

We need to let you know that today’s Teaser is from the Graphics Department.    You know she they don’t usually give you all super hard ones so you don’t have to DREAD seeing the photo for today.

“Dread?  We don’t dread….we’re up for anything!”

“Speak for yourself buddy…..I dread all kinds of things…..empty baby bottles, peas, baths……!!!”

Alright everyone let’s get down to business shall we????    Our Photo Security Guard is bringing in the Teaser photo for today so clean your glasses and get ready to study!

“I wear contacts and they’re already clean thank you very much!!!!”

Reporting for duty Professors…..Here’s the photo!

OK gang – where the heck is this???

While you’re agonizing over it, what say we get the Cheer Girls to cheer you up – after all that’s their job right?    By the way, please don’t laugh when you see their new uniforms.   They tried on their new cheer costumes today.    Let’s just say they said they’d require extra beer to wear these things.

You’ve got to be kidding is all we can say
You don’t REALLY expect us to dress this way!?
Instead of pom poms we wave our fins?
We must be paying now for all our sins!
The biggest insult is the shark head hats
Is this any way to treat your cheerleader cats?
We hope you students enjoy school in a fish
Different uniforms would be our wish!

Now girls – I’m sure everyone agrees with me that you look adorable.   And you can still cheer – it might be tricky keeping your sharks in place but otherwise you’ll do just fine!

Students I think we’d better hurry off to the cafeteria now…………..our Cheer Team is a tad “miffed” and we probably should let them spend some time enjoying their fish tank hot tub!

Lunch is ready students!   We have fish on the menu in case you want to get used to it!

On The Menu Today:

See you all tomorrow for the TELL ALL Class!!!   Good Luck

TIME TO TELL ALL !

Hi Class!   Good job yesterday…………we actually had SEVEN First Commenters and more than two who guessed the Teaser photo right – a bumper crop of a class if you ask us!   Well done.

YAY FOR US!  

Now we just need to hand out badges and let you know who our OUTSTANDING STUDENTS were for this week…………….first up – the list of FIRST COMMENTERS!   Could we get a drumroll please??????

OUR SEVEN FIRST COMMENTERS WERE:

CECELIA, CAROLE, FRANK, SHARON, BUNTY, INGRID and PIX

“WOWZER MEOWZER that’s quite a crowd of Firsties!!”

Congratulations!

Each of you FIRSTIES gets one of these:

I was one of SEVEN (yes I said SEVEN) First Commenters on the Teaser of July 13, 2021! WOW

Next we waited to see who would be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………we had some wrong guesses then WHAMMO – two people guessed it RIGHT within a minute of each other but only one was THE FIRST……………..wanna know who?    Please give us a drumroll and we’ll tell:

Our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was:

CSILLA !

Woooo Hooooooooo!

This badge is for you Csilla:

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of July 13, 2021- YAY FOR ME!

If you also guessed correctly – you get one of these:

Well I wasn’t the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER but I did GUESS RIGHT so I got this badge. Maybe I’ll be FIRST next week???!

AND if you guessed but were wrong – you get one of these:

Oh dear – I guessed WRONG on the Teaser photo of July 13, 2021….I’ll study harder next week!

“RA RA REE – I WISH IT COULDA BEEN ME!”

Thanks crowd for giving our hard working Teaser Students some credit…………………..now – let’s talk about the PHOTO shall we?    First of all you know it was a GUEST TEASER PHOTO.   Our GUEST was Mr. Frank and he was in class yesterday zinging us with incorrect guesses to throw you off – did it work????  HAHA    Seriously, this is a great photo and our Graphics Department had to blur out the flag flying above the building because it would have given it away – at least the location would have been known to be:

GUATEMALA

This is the National Palace, or the Palace of the Captains, or – well there are several names for the building but you didn’t have to guess the building you had to guess the TOWN/CITY and COUNTRY and that is…………….

ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA

Csilla guessed it first……………here are a couple of links you can follow to get more info on this most interesting place (I bet it’s hot there!):

This is the Wikipedia page for this location……….. CLICK HERE

This site is a UNESCO site – Antigua is a UNESCO city……………..   CLICK HERE

Thanks a lot Frank………….super Teaser and Csilla figured it out by an interesting method of location but she’s really good at searching for clues in photos and making her guess.

This badge is for you Frank for being so kind to send in a super duper TEASER photo for us!

My fabulous photo was featured on the Tuesday Teaser of July 13, 2021!

“Oh poop!  I got a WRONG GUESSER badge and I already have 1,272 of ’em !”

I think there are a lot of people with growing collections of WRONG GUESSER badges Leroy.    Just remember – YOU TRIED!

Maybe the Cheer Team can cheer everyone up (including themselves because they were slightly depressed about having to put EIGHT names total into their cheer for today!

We hope that you’re all happy
Writing a cheer this week was really crappy!
Too many names to cram into one cheer
Means we’re way behind on our beer!
We’re relieving our tension with ballet
Remember we’re grumpy so watch what you say!
Who was FIRST RIGHT you might ask?
Miss Csilla was the one who was up to THAT task!
Our First Commenters were our biggest crowd
We’ll say their names loud and proud!
Cecilia, Carole, Frank and Pix
Bunty, Sharon and Ingrid total one more than SIX!
Ballet is first but then we’re out of here….
Heading to the pub for MORE than one beer!!!

Well I’m sure not surprised and I know the students aren’t either!

“Hurry up girls – we’ve got some cold ones for ya!”

I suppose we should head to the cafeteria for lunch………..oh – before we do – we wanted to tell everyone that our WINNING New School Design was #3 so it looks like we will soon be DING DONG FISH SCHOOL !!!!

Design #3

Happy Wednesday – COME AND GET IT!
