Pre-Teaser Prep Class

Standard

Good Morning Students!   Happy Monday………….

Today we shall endeavor to get you prepared for class tomorrow where you’ll be examining a mystery photo and hoping to be the FIRST to tell us WHERE the photo was taken.   Yep – that’s what we do in Teaser class (in case you’re new here!).    It’s all about the mystery of figuring something out.   Some photos have plenty of clues and some NONE.   It’s up to Teaser Class students to soldier on and figure out what they’re seeing.

I always bring my glasses with me on Tuesdays – well actually I wear them all the time!

We have rules of course – which you experienced Teasers know but let’s review shall we?

Easy right?   Just use your eyes and figure out what country/city, etc. the photo was taken in.   The only thing we ask is that you don’t just load the photo up into a program and let the program answer that – we want you to figure it out on your own or with the help of “search” when you see something unique in the photo, etc.

We have PRIZES (badges) for you if you’re a winner and actually one if you’re a loser – see?  We have no REAL losers at Ding Dong School!

As you see we have a badge for the FIRST PERSON TO COMMENT on tomorrow’s post!    What’s so tough about that?  Nothing really except you don’t know WHEN the post will be delivered to your inbox because we change the time EVERY WEEK!    Sneaky huh?    Just be on the alert.

The Teaser photo this week is a GUEST TEASER photo…….one of our students sent the photo in and we think it’s a goodie – hope you do too.

I’ll have to try not to oversleep!

Our fabulous Cheer Team is here to give you a cheer which will hopefully get you FIRED UP for tomorrow’s class………………..Ladies???

We’re on our way to practice our ballet
Our cheer uniforms are being cleaned by the valet
No leaping around for cheers today from we ladies
Because quite frankly it’s hot as HADES
We don’t want our ballet costumes to get all wet
Because acrobatics make us sweat!
Study hard to night students and do us proud
Tomorrow we promise to cheer NICE AND LOUD!!

 

Thanks girls……………..we certainly don’t want you to get “all dewy” leaping around either………….save that kind of stuff for ballet!

So do you have any questions class?

What’s for lunch????

We meant to say are there any questions about tomorrow’s TEASER class!    We’re about to break for lunch so HANG IN THERE.

GROOVY……

We try to be as groovy as possible here at Ding Dong Sheep School.    Now, if there are no more questions – LET’S EAT!

Last one to the cafeteria is a rotten egg!!!!

Greetings Students…..on behalf of my cafeteria staff, WELCOME to lunchtime at Ding Dong.    ENJOY!

Teaser Tell All Class In Session

Standard

Greetings and Salutations Students!   Have a seat…………..

Today’s class is of course the TELL ALL and we are happy to tell you that this time around, we not only had a FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, we had a LOT of RIGHT GUESSERS.    Concatulations – but first – may we have a drum roll for our FIRST COMMENTERS please????

IS IT MEEEEEEEE???? WAS I ONE OF THEM??

No Chester, sorry but it is NOT you………………..you in fact were asleep in the back of the room when we went “live” yesterday!    But there were THREE students who were on the ball enough to be FIRST COMMENTERS:

Sharon at Friends Furever, Charles Huss at BadCatChris, and Jackie at Two Devon Cats!

WOO HOOOOOO FOR THREE FIRST COMMENTERS THIS WEEK!!

Darn……I tried!

Each of you get one of these FABULOUS badges of your VERY own!:

I was one of THREE First Commenters on the Teaser of January 22, 2019! YAY FOR US!

No worries students – there’s always NEXT week to try again!!

We want to show you the TEASER photo again and as we told you Tuesday, it was NOT a Guest Teaser it was from our Graphics Department and here it is one more time:

This is a great view of Georgetown area of Washington, DC and that’s the Francis Scott Key Bridge with Georgetown University up on the hill!    This is 41 miles away from where Ding Dong School is located in Virginia……..and ONE of you students said you knew it because you had boated under this bridge before!

WHO WAS OUR FIRST RIGHT GUESSER???

Charles Huss of BadCatChris which makes him a DOUBLE WINNER today!

I was a FIRST COMMENTER and FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of January 22, 2019! A DOUBLE WHAMMY WINNER!!!

There were a BUNCH of you who recognized this as a photo from Washington, DC and if you were one of them, you get one of these to show off on your blog!

I guessed the TEASER correctly on January 22, 2019, BUT I wasn’t the first one to do that….I still got THIS cool badge though!!

Those of you who TRIED but didn’t guess correctly – well – you still deserve something for the time and effort you put into trying to figure it out!    You get one of our FABULOUS GREENIES:

Darn! I tried to guess correctly on the Teaser of January 22, 2019 BUT I didn’t……there’s always NEXT week!

I GOT A BADGE THIS WEEK!

YAY – I guessed right so I get a RIGHT GUESSER badge….

AT LEAST I TRIED AND GOT A GREENIE!

So this was a BANNER week this week for many of you………………concatulations – see what studying does for you???????

I studied and all I got was HEARTACHE!!!!!

Let’s see if the Cheer Team can cheer you up – ready, set, go!

It was an Easy-ish Teaser but we owed you one
The previous ones were toughies and you didn’t have fun!
Now we handed out some badges this week yes it’s true….
And Charles Huss was so good HE won TWO!
He was FIRST COMMENTER and FIRST RIGHT GUESSER
We’ve seen his photo on his blog and he’s a snappy dresser……
But he wasn’t the only FIRST COMMENTER there were TWO MORE!
Sharon and Jackie were just as fast to come through the door!
So concatulations to you all who won badges this week……
Study hard again and go for a WINNING STREAK!

Thanks ladies………….you did well considering you had a few names to get through……..but you know it’s a VERY RARE Tuesday when we only have ONE First Commenter.   That makes your cheer too darn easy – more fun with more winners!

Well I’m still UPSET cuz I wanted to be FIRST RIGHT….I think I’ll just pout all day.

Go right ahead and pout but whatever you do, don’t cry on your lunch tray and get your lunch all soggy.   Who’s up for lunch????

Hi Students……..well…..seems I may have to leave you again for a little while in order to have some – er – REVISIONS to my surgical procedures done.   Things seem to be “moving around” a little and I don’t like the direction they are headed (like to my hips for instance!).    I’m sorry but I’ll be back again soon – until then we’ll have coverage here so no worries.    Enjoy your lunch!!

Teaser Tuesday Class Is Now!

Standard

Good Morning Students!   COMMENT NOW!

Aafter ommenting, please have a seat at your assigned desk.     We have an interesting Teaser photo for you to examine today and we’ll get to that in just a few minutes.   HOWEVER, yesterday’s Pre-Teaser post had a lot of information about TEASERWEEN and when we’d have class and NOT have class so I thought I’d do a Calendar Page for you for what’s going on the rest of this month.

Basically no Teaser next week but we will have Teaser classes the REST of the month.    Then I showed you the days you need to submit your TEASERWEEN photos for our costume contest and when we will have the poll available for voting.    We’ll announce the winner on HALLOWEEN.    I love that Halloween is a school day this year – very cool huh????

If you have any questions about the schedule just let us know.

Groovy!

Double Groovy!

Now shall we get on with today’s Teaser experience????    Let’s do that.    This is a GUEST TEASER this week and we’ll tell you who the guest was tomorrow along with the details.  Meanwhile, here are the rules for figuring out TODAY’S Teaser photo:

I won’t show you all the badges yet again – you know those by heart now right?   But you might win a badge if you’re lucky!!    Just remember to follow the rules so everyone has a chance.

Perhaps now is a good time to get a rowsing cheer from the cheer team……………..then we’ll bring out Mr. Security Guard with the photo and LET THE FUN BEGIN.

Here we are, ready to go
Come on Profs let’s start the show
We got a peek at the Teaser this morning
It might be tough so this is fair warning…..
You MIGHT even think you’ve seen it before
But you haven’t – trust us – WE know the score!
Now if you’ll excuse us we must get hopping…..
We need to get started on our TEASERWEEN shopping!!

Thank you Cheer Team…….PAGING MR. SECURITY TO GEOGRAPHY CLASS!

AND MAKE IT SNAPPY!

Thanks gang – you may not go pop in Sarge’s hot tub because he’s not at school today…………..he’s got the day off!   Just remember to get the ring around the tub scrubbed off or he’ll suspect someone used HIS tub while he was gone.

Heaven forbid!

Would you all be ready for lunch by any chance because I can smell the unmistakable aroma of FRIED CHICKEN and other goodies………..it must be Miss Dingleberry’s FRIED FOOD DAY!

We’ll have fried chicken, French fries and onion rings please…..the FULL FAT EXPERIENCE!

Pre-Teaser Monday

It’s Monday and time for us to get you all warmed up to face Tuesday and the challenge that Tuesday brings to students of geography at Ding Dong School!     YOU WOULD BE YOU!

ME??????

WHO – ME?????

YES – you, you and YOU!   All of you.    We need to remind you of the rules, show you what badges you can win and how, and feed you a good lunch or snack so you will have the energy to PAY ATTENTION in school tomorrow when it counts the most.   First a review of the rules:

Yes indeed – we want you to use your BRAIN to figure out the Teaser……just study the photo and you probably can figure it out every time.    Secondly, here are the badges you can win tomorrow!

Also, I must remind you that the post will appear in your inbox at a SURPRISE time so be alert…………..don’t stay up too late tonight……….and maybe YOU will be our FIRST COMMENTER!

I’m gonna study REALLY hard tonight….!

I bet you all would just LOVE to have a cheer from the cheer team to really get you in the mood for tomorrow – right?

Chick-a-Boom, Chick-a-Boom, Chick-a-BoomBoomBoom
We want everyone’s attention in the old classroom!
Tomorrow is the teaser so it’s comin’ soon….
Either you’ll be a star, or a big baboon….
We think if Sarge doesn’t get out of the hot tub room
He’s gonna turn into a BIG big bald prune!

Hey……WAITAMINUTE!   Why pick on me today????

Oh Sarge – at least they aren’t spreading rumors again about you and Marge!    Now let’s move onto something less contentious and serve up some of Miss Dingleberry’s SNACKS at the back of the room – that ought to cheer YOU and everyone up!

Alright my little rugrats I have a couple of sandwich platters TOO in case a snack doesn’t fill you up!

Roast beef, ham, turkey!

Chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad!

Don’t forget – surprise time tomorrow!!   See you then!

Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy too………..

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Good Morning Class!!!!   Ready to hear ALL ?

I’m riveted to my seat! (or maybe someone put some glue on my chair???)

I’d say we had a whopper of a Teaser yesterday wouldn’t you?    It started out with a BIG BANG when we had FOUR – that’s right – FOUR FIRST COMMENTERS!    Suzie and her crew screamed “foul” when we told them but in the end they were good sports………AND they got some free hot tub time for their trouble courtesy of Sarge (who was attending a yoga class at the time).

This can be our little secret right?  Uhoh….Sarge is back! 

I am quite zenned out from my yoga class girls – tomorrow I will yell – today I will say OOOOMMMM!

Alright let’s get on with the show while the girls get dressed for their cheer.

FIRST let’s tell you who our FOUR FIRST COMMENTERS were!    All of them popped in the first minute the post went LIVE this morning!   CONGRATULATIONS TO:

TIMMY, JACKIE, ANNIE and SHARON!

YAY FOR ALL OUR FIRST COMMENTERS!

Each of you wins one of these FABULOUS BADGES to add to your collections!

I was one of FOUR First Commenters on the Teaser of April 3, 2018!!

Here’s the photo we had for yesterday’s TEASER to refresh your memory:

A very tough Teaser.   My Mom found this in a very VERY “roundabout” kind of way.   She googled “Japan” to look for a photo to use and there in the images was THIS PHOTO.   She knew it was NOT a photo of Japan but she followed up to find out WHERE it was and it was linked to a Japanese Travel site and was being touted as a “great place for Japanese people to visit”.   Then it said where it was and she was rather SURPRISED to learn that it was Berat, Albania!    WHERE?  You heard me – Albania.    Here’s the information on this city which actually has a most interesting history!     CLICK HERE

Lo and behold, much to our amazement, we had ONE student who guessed this correctly!   We had tons of guesses coming in but she was the only one to guess this correctly.

And the winner is…….

Ingrid !

Miss Ingrid I am sure our classmates would love to know how you found out this Teaser’s location.

Sorry you two – Miss Ingrid beat you to it this week!

This badge is for you Miss Ingrid:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of April 3, 2018!

WOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!

I don’t think anyone else guessed this correctly, but if someone DOES after we’ve already scheduled this post then this would be for you:

I wasn’t first but I got it RIGHT on the Teaser of April 3, 2018

AND the badge most of you are just dying to collect for your efforts guessing this one although you were WRONG:

Darn Darn Darn I was WRONG on the Teaser of April 3,2018 BUT I tried!!!

Well ladies – you’re all dried off from your hot tub visit – are you ready to sing out a cheer for our winners????????????

Yesterday was a real bonanza
Because of that we have a lot of stanzas
FOUR first commenters is what we had
Any more than THAT and it would have been BAD!
Jackie, Annie, Timmy and also Sharon
So many names we’re beyond really carin’ !
Congrats to you four but you wore out the team
Having four firsties took all of our steam!
We have just enough energy for the our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER
Miss Ingrid took that prize – she’s a real “impresser” !
We’re exhausted now so back to the tub we go
C’mon Sarge – let’s go with the flow!!!

OK Cheer team……..you did well with that one and deserve another round of hot-tubbing for sure.

The Professors want to say that ALL of you did a lot of good guesswork yesterday!   Some of you looked at details and examined the photo from side to side and top to bottom………and we know you all followed the rules and tried your best……..you get a big PROFESSORS HUG!

From Your Professors

Shall we have a little snackable before we recess?   Yesterday’s Italian EXTRAVAGANZA courtesy of Miss Dingleberry filled me up – I told her perhaps we should have something LIGHT today for a change and she said she’d wheel in her snack machines and equipment so if you want a little something – please step to the back of the classroom and get something – a SMALL popcorn, or something that won’t make you want to pop the buttons off your trousers!!!

What’ll it be sonny boy?!

Your Professors will see you NEXT week for more crazy fun!   

Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Good Morning Class! 

You’d better COMMENT NOW before you sit down at your desk!

Is everybody ready to participate in today’s geography quiz?   Oh I hope so………you know we have more than one DUNCE CAP available and we’re not afraid to use them (Marge is in charge of those!).

YES I AM!!

I’ve had this one on so long I think it’s permanently embedded in my head!

Today’s Teaser is NOT a GUEST TEASER it’s “home grown” from US.    Your Professors got this one lined up for you and we think it’s a doozy.    We will remind you NOW what the rules are and we hope that you will follow them!

We have some swell badges that you can earn – one for the FIRST COMMENTER on today’s blog, one for the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER of today’s Teaser photo, one for EVERYONE who guesses correctly on today’s TEASER and one for those of you who bomb out (oops I mean guess incorrectly) on today’s TEASER!

Now I know you may think “SO WHAT?” about winning a badge but trust me – there are a lot of students out there who like nothing better than winning a badge to show off…….so on Wednesday’s post here in class we will announce WHO GETS WHAT.

I think I unnnerstand all those rules Professors…..

We always like to get you pumped up to guess so before we show you today’s challenging photograph, how about a cheer from our awesome Cheer Team????

We’re here and we’re ready
Keep your hearts steady
We know we’re so adorable
Our behavior occasionally deplorable
But today we’re ready to cheer
And pat you on the rear (no giggling please)
We hope you’re ready to guess
We’ve seen the photo and we confess
None of us has got a clue
We hope that’s not true for YOU!!!!

WOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!

Well everyone is whipped into a frenzy so the time is RIGHT for us to bring our the Security Guard who has been guarding our TOP SECRET PHOTO for today…………….

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

Sooo????  What place are we seeing in this photo????

Tune in tomorrow in class so we can give you the scoop on who wins what…………..you may not THINK you care about winning a badge but trust me – legions of followers will testify to the fact that it’s a BIG RUSH to win one!    Besides, we are sure that one day Teaser Badges will be worth their weight in gold……well….maybe not gold exactly but they might be worth something!  You never know……..

If you say so Professor……

Miss Dingleberry is serving up Italian Specialties today for our pre-recess lunch.   Doesn’t that sound BELLISSIMO ????    See you all in class tomorrow!

Yes we had pizza yesterday and today we’re having more Italian food – ya got a problem with that??? No? Good!

 

Enjoy (and don’t get sauce on your shirt or your Mom will be mad at you!)

Your Professors
