Teaser Tell All Time


Students!   You remembered where to come for class today!  BRAVO……..Clowie says we’re good to go so let’s start telling all.

I’m trying to control my excitement….but it’s not easy sometimes!

We are glad that you’re excited – we are too.    We love our new classroom and we are glad you all do too.

I need a booster seat for my desk chair – I’m a little SHORT!

We’ll make sure you have a high stool next week Edgar!

We’re glad all of you found the new classroom with out a lot of problems yesterday and that you took time to COMMENT before you sat down.    Want to know WHO was the very first student to COMMENT yesterday morning???????


I’d like to know too – I was here VERY early myself!

Our very FIRST COMMENTER yesterday was:

Drumroll Please!




OH BOY! I was FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of February 25, 2020 – I’m a “FREQUENT FIRSTIE” !!


So  yesterday’s Teaser was from our Graphics Department and it was really a pretty photo – we thought we just might fool everyone with this one but guess what – WE DID NOT!    Here’s the photo:

We asked you to tell us what city and state or country this photo was taken in – and the FIRST student to tell us it was taken in ZARAGOZA, SPAIN was:

Drumroll Please!


HIPPITY HIP HOORAY for Miss Jackie!!!

CONCATULATIONS Miss Jackie – you are also a FREQUENT FIRST RIGHT GUESSER in class……!   Here is your badge:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of February 25, 2020 – WOW – I am a force to be reckoned with!!!!

We had other right guessers yesterday too – and in fact our Security Director Clowie was ALMOST our First Right Guesser – she was hot on the trail but didn’t QUITE beat out Miss Jackie with the correct guess.     If you were also right but not first, we have a BADGE for that…………..please take one (you too CLOWIE!):

I was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser of February 25, 2020 but I was NOT FIRST! Maybe next week?????

If you were WRONG with your guess…………….well by now you know that you don’t walk away empty-handed.   We have a badge for everyone who TRIED but were WRONG:

Gosh – I thought I was right but I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of February 25, 2020. At least I still get a cool badge to inspire me to do better next week! Boo Hoo!

Concatulations Students!


No worries – you can study hard this week and perhaps win something next week! 

I bet the Cheer Team will CHEER you all up and get you ready to pop off to lunch and then HOME for the rest of the day……………………..girls?   Take it away!

This week’s winners are familiar faces!
They recognize the photos taken in so many places!
Our First Commenter was Sharon – she’s an early riser
To be FIRST COMMENTER for her is not a “surpriser” !!!
Then we waited to see who would guess the Teaser location
Miss Jackie of course – the smartest in her nation!!
We’re proud of all who guessed cuz it’s sometimes rough
But Ding Dong School students are made of STRONG STUFF!!!!!!

Now – who’s UP for lunch?    I know we are.    Let’s go shall we???    You’re free to head home after lunch students.

Happy Tell All Tuesday Students…..we’re ready to tell all of you what’s on the menu today!

Teaser Tell All


“All secure Professors!   Classroom and grounds all clear!”

Thanks Clowie and company.    Now we can begin our TELL ALL class……………………first we want to say we sure as heck didn’t fool many of you yesterday with our Teaser photo.    We are giving away a boat load of RIGHT GUESSER badges today!

Oh yeah? WHO WHO WHO?

You sound like an owl…………..we’ll tell you WHO in a bit.  FIRST THINGS FIRST though.     Who was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER yesterday?

Drumroll Please!

SHARON of Friends Furever !!!!! (a Frequent Flyer Firstie)


I was the one and only FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of February 18, 2020! I rock!

Concatulations Miss Sharon!   Yet another First Commenter badge for you!!!

Here’s the funny thing about yesterday’s Teaser…………….our Graphics Department Supervisor (who is also the only employee of the Graphics Department) had another photo picked out AND loaded up in the post for today BUTTTTTT at the last minute decided to change it.    Why?   Who knows what goes on in the brain of “you know who”.     Anyway, the photo we DID use was still a cool photo and I have to admit I was surprised it was as easy as it apparently was!     Wanna see the photo again?

Yep that’s it.   Looks like a grand building in Europe somewhere – maybe England – maybe Russia (several people guessed Russia)………………….but it’s NOT – it is the rather stately and beautiful Iowa State Capital Building in Des Moines, Iowa.     So many of you guessed this one correctly but only ONE of you (of course) was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER………..WHO????

The Winner is……………….



CONCATULATIONS !!   Here’s your badge!

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of February 18, 2020. YAY FOR ME!!!!

Then of course as we said earlier there were a whole pile of students who guessed the Teaser correctly after that………………………but each of you who did, get a RIGHT GUESSER badge (we had to have a special courier bring us a barrel of them from storage since we had so many getting it right this week!!!!).     Please take one of these:

Well I guessed the Teaser correctly on February 18, 2020 BUT I was not the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER! BOOOOOO!

Did you guess but were WRONG?????   You still get a Greenie (our affectionate name for LOSER BADGE!):

WHAAAA! I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of February 18, 2020. But I’ll try again NEXT week! YOUBETCHA!

Now I’m SURE our Cheer Team wants to do their thing so please sit still and be patient – lunch is right after Cheer Team cheers!

That Teaser was way too easy!
You sailed through bright and breezy!
Lots of RIGHT GUESSERS there were
Their names are just a big blur
Did you know her hair was blonde and curly???
Then Miss Mimi came on the scene
There were tons of Right Guessers all day long
Too many to put names in our cheer song!
Congrats to all you smarties…..
As pirates say “LET’S GO EAT ME HEARTIES!”


Ole’ students!   It’s MEXICAN day – are your tummies ready for this?   GOOD!

Don’t forget to chew a couple of these after lunch (or before!)

Students!  You might want to lower your windows on the ride home – even though it’s chilly outside – you know what Mexican food does for some of you and we don’t want an AIR QUALITY EVENT in this enclosed space!    SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY FOR MORE TEASER FUN!

Teaser Tell All


Hello class!   Glad to see you this morning.   

I know you are curious to hear how things turned out with the Teaser photo from yesterday.    We have award badges for the winners and boxes of kleenex for all the tears from the losers.

We’re all ready to hear the scoop Professors!

Good – I’m glad you’re excited.    We actually had TWO First Commenters yesterday morning when we went live at 7:40AM EST………………….both of them are “Frequent Flyers” when it comes to being early birds and sneaking in to ring the school bell FIRST when we open the doors.     WHO ARE THEY?

Drumroll Please!



I was one of TWO First Commenters on the Teaser post of February 4, 2020! YAY FOR US !!

I was here early but I forgot to comment!!!!

Well you know what they say………………”YOU CRUISE – YOU LOSE”………….maybe we should post a sign on the front door to the school on Tuesdays saying “DON’T FORGET TO COMMENT WHEN YOU GET HERE!!”…………….

Anyway, it wasn’t too long after we had our first commenters that we had our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………………..here’s the photo we showed all of you yesterday:

A mighty pretty photograph I might say……………and our Graphics Department found this one on a real estate site actually………………………..WHERE was the photo taken?   From a bird?   From a plane?   From a balloon?   From a drone?    Well we don’t know that but we know that it’s a photo of JOHN ISLAND with the town of CHARLESTON, South Carolina, USA in the distance!

WHO GUESSED IT FIRST??????????????

Drumroll Please!

TIMMY TOMCAT (a double winner today!)

The crowd is cheering for you Timmy!!!!   Here’s your badge!

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER of the Teaser photo of February 4, 2020. I am PAWSOME!!!

As of the time we got our lesson plan done for class today we only had one student other than Timmy who got this one right BUT if you sneaked in and guessed correctly AFTER Timmy did – please feel free to take one of these runner-up badges too!

I was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser photo of February 4, 2020 but I was NOT first…..oh well….next week maybe?????

AND of course anyone who guessed but made an INCORRECT guess – you get a reward for TRYING………………………………one of these:

I was wrong with my guess on the Teaser of February 4, 2020 but I TRIED and that’s what’s important!!!!

So there you have it – another successful Teaser class………………..!     If you have a photo you’d like us to use for a Tuesday Teaser one day, email it to us along with details of where the photo was taken and we will let you know when we will be using it to TEST OUR STUDENTS!

Mom and I will go through our photos and find one that will fool EVERYBODY!

It’s a lot of fun when it’s YOUR photo to see the guesses coming in……………….!

Now – let’s see what our Cheer Team has to say about today’s Teaser results shall we??????

Hey Ho Whaddaya know
We had winners on the Teaser show!
Early birds this week we had TWO quickies
Sharon and Timmy both were fast and tricky!
But Timmy’s luck wasn’t over yet
A second badge he was about to get!
Our First Right Guesser was Timmy all over
We guess he found a four-leaf clover!
Congrats to all you’re such smarty pants
Now to heck with class let’s get up and dance!!!!!!

Now what a minute girls – no dancing during class time.    You can dance on the way out to the buses after lunch if you like……………………

Well done class!   Let’s go get some lunch shall we??

Glad to see you students and Professors…….enjoy your lunch today!

Tuesday Teaser Class Is In Session!


“OK Team!  Let’s head into school to let the Professors know all is well on the school grounds!!”

Happy Tuesday Students!  HAVE YOU COMMENTED yet???

Clowie and her team did a perimeter search for introoooders and found none so we are good to go for class today……………we have a Teaser photo courtesy of our overworked and underpaid Graphics Department and we’re hoping that they took into consideration that the last two have been somewhat TOUGH-ISH!    We’ll find out shortly.

Well it’s time we had an EASIER Teaser anyway!

We’ll see how things turn out today……………..anyway, let’s review the rules then get down to business shall we?

And here are the badges up for grabs with today’s Teaser guessing………………….you know you want one (or two!):

I’m a new student but I REALLY wanna win a badge this week to start my collection!

Let’s go ahead and get our Security Guard in to bring the photo he’s been guarding from prying eyes ever since Graphics Department found a photo for us shall we???????


Here’s today’s photo Professors!


OK gang – check out this pretty aerial photo of WHAT city??   Where?    HMM?????    Give it your bestest shot.   We’ll see how things turn out tomorrow when we have our TELL ALL class and hand out badges.

I’m trying to control my excitement….but it’s not easy sometimes!

Speaking of excitement – I bet the Cheer Team can get your hearts pumping if nothing else does it – I see some sleepy faces out in the classroom and the Cheer Team knows how to SHAKE IT UP – Girls?  You’re ON!!

No winter gear on cuz it’s a pretty nice day
We’ll just enjoy the weather before it goes away
You students better study the Teaser photo well
Cuz if you guess wrong you might wind up in (&#!!) (note: edited by the censor)
Do your best is what we always say
If you blow it this week there’s always next Tuesday
So make a guess if you’ve got a hunch
Then put down your pencils and go to lunch!

Thanks Ladies……………..good job……..nice to know the censor is at work since some of your cheers are occasionally questionable!!

Even with a censor the cheer chicks are groovy!

Well let’s just say that if you want to stay here in the classroom to work on your guess on today’s Teaser photo – that’s fine………..but anyone else who needs a little food reinforcement before they tackle the Teaser, follow us to the cafeteria!!

Hello students!   Step right up to the cafeteria line and make your choices for lunch today – we have your favorites available!

Teaser Tell All


Welcome back students!   What a Teaser that was huh????

We’re ready to give you the low down on yesterday’s whopper of a Teaser – starting off with the amazing and wonderful fact that within the first sixty seconds of sending the blog out (or should I say when the school doors opened up) we have no less than FOUR First Commenters!      Anyone who comments in the first MINUTE we pop up is a FIRST COMMENTER.

Who were our four FIRSTIES?????

Janet (The Cat On My Head), Katty (Easyweimaraner), Timmy (TimmyTomcat) and Sharon (Friends Furever) !!


WOW……you all were ready to go at 7:45AM (EST) weren’t you!    You each get a badge for that!

I was one of FOUR First Commenters on the Teaser of January 14, 2020. Now can I pretty please go back to sleep?????? *yawn*

Second week in a row we have four First Commenters and no doubt the Cheer Team will be thrilled (not) to have four names to sneak into their cheer today – I guess we’ll find out in just a few minutes.

I think they might be a little upset!

Upset? Upset? You would be too if you had to write a cheer with all those names!

We’ll find out soon enough……………………let’s move on though – I want to show you the photo from yesterday that we used for a Teaser AND tell you something about it!

This fine photo is of a very dignified (in spite of the pigeon posed on his hat) and very well known writer – Alexander Kielland and his poop covered hat and the rest of him are located in the beautiful city of STAVENGER, NORWAY.   Here’s a link to further info if you’d interested!    CLICK HERE

This photo came to us courtesy of a GUEST TEASER.    She travels a whole lot and found his among her photos and sent it in because she thought it would be a REAL STUMPER – and it was except SOMEONE did guess it right – followed by some others………………..first though let’s thank Jackie of TwoDevonCats for the fab photo shall we????

My photo was used at One Spoiled Cat for their TEASER post of January 14, 2020!



Drumroll Please!

CSILLA (Kolytyi)


I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of January 14, 2020! YAY FOR ME!

And she wasn’t the only right guesser……………………….those who lined up behind her get one of these badges for guessing correctly but not being first:

I was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser of January 14, 2020 BUT I was not first. Maybe next week???!

And if you guessed where the Teaser photo was from BUT were WRONG WRONG WRONG with your guess??????????   Well, you STILL get a fabulous “door prize” (haha) – a badge for guessing WRONG!   Help yourself to one of these:

I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of January 14, 2020….how awful is THAT?!?!?!

WOO HOO – we thought for sure NOBODY would get the Teaser this week but obviously we were WRONG too.

Cheer Team?    If you’re still speaking to us, please give us your cheer for all of these winners today……………..

You’re making it tough on your cheer team
We might demand a bottle of Jim Beam
But in spite of all the names
Our amazing talent remains the same
Our First Commenters we had FOUR
That’s happened here before!
Janet, Timmy, Sharon and Katty the FAB FOUR
You ALL got badges like you’ve had before!
Then along came Miss Csilla who was guessed RIGHT FIRST today
For her we are happy and we just wanna say
WOO HOO STUDENTS you’re all just swell
If you do this to us again next week may you all go to……um…..heaven!!!!!!

Gosh girls…………………..we’re SPEECHLESS!

Very impressive cheer ladies…..I’m not sure I understand all of it though!

Trust me Herman, you’re not old enough to understand all of it.

So all the awards have been awarded and it’s time for us to head off to the cafeteria where Miss Dingleberry and company await us………………………bring your appetites and your school books because from lunch you get to go HOME – buses will be waiting for you.

OK STUDENTS!!!  Let’s EAT !!!!

Teaser Tuesday Time!


It’s HERE!    TUESDAY!   Have you commented yet???  You better do that NOW!

I have just received word from our fabulous Security Team that we are all secure and officially cleared for class to begin today………………..a big hand (or paw) to Clowie and her team for making sure all is well on campus!

We’ve “gotcha covered” Ding Dong School Class !!  

We’re here to have some fun with our regular Tuesday class where we get eyestrain looking at a photo that was taken SOMEWHERE by SOMEONE and we have to figure out WHERE!    It’s a challenge most weeks and this week we have a photo from one of our students instead of our Graphics Department (she gets a break).

Here are the rules for our fun – AND our badges that you just might win if you’re lucky.

(grumble…grumble…..I’m still sleepy – not ready for rules yet!!!!)

AND here are the lovely WINTERIZED badges you might just find yourselves winning one or more of !


I like it when we have NEW badges to win!!!!

Are you ready for the photo for today?   Please remember the rules – use your brain to figure it out – it’s more fun AND you learn more that way.

Here’s today’s photo Professors!

How’s this for a Toughie students?     I love this photo…………………good luck figuring out WHERE it was taken………………………….!    This one just might take a lot of figuring out – we love a challenge right students??????????????????

WOW……..this is really hard stuff…….I don’t wanna disappoint my parents…….I’ll try hard I pawmise!

Perhaps if the Cheer Team does their thing they will inspire everyone to do their best to figure this tough Teaser out………………..

Nice badges for you lucky students
We think doing your best might be prudent
The Professors expect great things from this group
So show them you’re a very smart troup!
We can tell you that we think this one is ROUGH
But we’re sure someone will get it – you’re TOUGH!
Ready, set, go for our lunch…..
Some good stuff for our tummies we’ll munch!!!

Alright little darlings – shall we adjourn to the lunch room while you think about this one?   Then you can come back to the classroom and get down to work guessing.   Tomorrow we’ll TELL ALL……………..

Welcome to the cafeteria students…………..belly up to the bar lunch line with your tray and choose something delicious so you can go back to class and get the TEASER correctly !!!!

See you in class at regular time tomorrow students and GOOD LUCK!

Teaser Tell All Time!


HooooHaaaaaa…..HERE WE ARE – Time to Tell!

Hello students……………you all look perky and ready for class this morning.    We sure had a BANNER class yesterday – we posted later than usual – after 8AM our time in face – but seems more people are AWAKE AND ALERT than we thought at that hour because we had A BIG CLASS!

I was here!

I was here too – I had a wet diaper but I was here.

Well we aren’t in charge of diapers here – just Teasers, and we had a full class yesterday and as a result, we had a LOT of winners.

Let’s start off by telling you about FIRST COMMENTERS……………………………………



Yes indeed and those lucky four are:



Each of you four winners get to copy the badge below for your very own!!!

I was one of FOUR (yes I said FOUR) First Commenters on the Teaser of January 7, 2020!

THEN…………………we patiently waited to see who would guess the Teaser photo right………………..we thought our Graphics Department had found a really difficult TEASER PHOTO for this week but we’re not so sure they (I mean she) did.    Here’s the photo we gave you:

We didn’t think there were many clues in this photo but of course all you had to do (sort of) is google “long covered bridges” and eventually you might have found this photo……..where is this cool bridge?????

It is Groveton Covered Bridge over the Ammanoosuc River in Northumberland, New Hampshire!

Wanna know now who was the FIRST to guess correctly?

Drumroll Please!

TIMMY TOMCAT – a double winner today !!


I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of January 7, 2020!!! YAY FOR ME!


In fact, there were a BUNCH of classmates who guessed this one RIGHT ON…………………………were you one of them?   If you were you get one of these!

Know what? I was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser of January 7, 2020 but I wasn’t first so I got this badge – pretty cool huh????

And even those of you who guessed but were WRONG get a badge………………..we are an equal opportunity badge class here you know!   One of these is all yours if you were WRONG:

Waaaaah! I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of January 7, 2020 but watch out next week!!!

Our Cheer Team will belt out their Cheer for all of you which I might add was a challenge considering we had FOUR FIRST COMMENTERS this week.   No doubt they will complain it took too long to write the cheer but we can simply ignore the complaints like we usually do class……………..HAHA

Four First Commenters was a lot of work
We think free lunch should be our special perk
Anyway, the four fasties were Tommy, Janet, Mimi and Sharon
The rest of you students probably aren’t carin’ !
But you would have won a badge if you’d been FAST
Sadly you oversleepers’ fate was already cast!
Our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was a familiar guy
He’s often right and that’s no lie
Timmy Tomcat guessed right first
Everyone else must have been cursed.
There’s always next week so you’d better get busy
Prove to the Profs you’re smart and not just dizzy!

Give yourselves a cheer class – you did good this week!


Now who’s up for lunch????????????????????????   Let’s go eat!     See you all next week……………………more Teaser fun coming your way!

Time to chow down class!   Enjoy lunch………………!
