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

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Happy Monday!   Class is about to begin!

Yikes – I forgot to bring my school books!

Too bad buddy – you can’t go home to get your books – you’ll just have to REMEMBER tomorrow!  That’s TEN demerits!

Happy Monday Students…..please have a seat and let’s begin.

I’m ready!

Today we will be preparing you for tomorrow.   That’s right – today we just go over the rules and get you PSYCHED up for tomorrow when you will see a photo from somewhere in the world and have to guess as best you can WHERE the photo was taken!    You will also have to be on your toes (or paws as the case may be) because the post is going to pop up at a SURPRISE time so be alert!

Why should you be alert?   Because the FIRST person to comment on the post tomorrow will win this:

Then you will be shown a photo by our Security Specialist who has been keeping the photo under lock and key so there will have been NO PEEKING.    Here are the rules for tomorrow’s GUESSWORK:

The reason we have #2 for a rule is that it’s super duper easy to place the photo we will show you into some program like Google Image Search and have IT tell you where the photo was taken.  We think it’s more fun if you don’t use any “cheats” and just figure it out on your own!!

We promise NEVER to cheat Professors!

The other badges you can win would be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, the RIGHT GUESSER (if you guess correctly but aren’t the FIRST to do so), and the WRONG GUESSER (otherwise known as the GREENIE).

Our cheerleaders are away at a cheerleading camp today but they will be here tomorrow to cheer you on.    We do have a cheer for you though.   This young lad tried out for the cheer team and didn’t make it but he was kind enough to volunteer to give you a little PUSH on Monday to get you in the mood for tomorrow!    Take it away BOBBY!

Gimme a B
Gimme an O
Two more Bs
And a Y
That’s my name
I thought it was a shame
You didn’t vote for ME
But I’m here for you to see
A grudge I do NOT hold
Though you left me out in the cold
I’m supposed to cheer you on
You’d better get up at dawn
The Teaser is a real whopper
A real heart stopper
Better get lotsa rest
You wanna be right – and best!
The girls will be here tomorrow
I’m gonna go drown my sorrow
The guys are down at the bar
So I’m gonna go hop in my car
I’ll see ya around the schoolyard
Now don’t forget to TRY HARD!!

C’mon Bobby – let’s go get a brewski !

 

Uhhh…….geee Bobby, didn’t know you’d taken it so hard when you weren’t picked for the cheerleading spot.   I’m sure next time Suzie is interviewing you can try out again!    In the meantime, thanks for cheering everyone on……………….sorta.

Poor Bobby…….

Don’t worry – Bobby will be back.   You know how the girls are always taking time off from cheer duty at school.

Don’t worry Bobby…..I’ll have a little TALK with the girls on your behalf!

OK class.   Let’s move on shall we?    Miss Dingleberry was kind enough to make some cookies for everyone today.   Tomorrow we’ll have a REAL lunch but today – snacks only.    After you have your snack you can STUDY.

OK Professors – I’ll study!

No makin’ fun of my hairnet – this is to start gettin’ me in the mood for Valentine’s Day…….

You get a smoothie or hot chocolate!

See you tomorrow!  Remember – SURPRISE time!!

Let The Tell All Begin!

Madge has larengitis so I’m here to say “TAKE A SEAT BECAUSE CLASS IS STARTING!”

 

Let’s get down to business students.    We thought that yesterday’s Teaser would be tough…….like TOUGH TOUGH……..were we right?  Nope………..we had a winner in a matter of less than a half hour!    Class – you never cease to surprise me!

We started off the Teaser competition with FIRST COMMENTER and yesterday we had TWO who chimed in within the first 60 seconds……who????

Jackie and Phenny

Miss Jackie and Da Phenny – you each get one of these!!!!!  Concatulations!

Two of us were FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser of Jan. 16, 2018 – Da Phenny and Miss Jackie!!

Here are the two Teaser photos we showed you………………

These great photos were sent in by our GUEST TEASER yesterday – Miss Csilla from KOLYTYI !    Thank you Csilla!!!!!

For Miss Csilla for being our GUEST TEASER on January 16, 2018

Where were these photos taken?    They were taken from the CLOCK TOWER in the Musee’ d’Orsay in Paris, France.    If you study the “out the window” shot you might see some familiar looking architectural styles – very Parisian, Oui?    If you aren’t familiar with this wonderful museum, it’s right on the Seine in the middle of Paris and contains an AMAZING collection of fabulous things – Csilla sent this video which you may enjoy taking a peek at……it’s like a tour of the museum!    Thank you so much Csilla – my Mom and Dad have been to Paris TWICE and never had a chance to see this museum but you can bet they will try if they ever get to go back!

So WHO was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER???????

DA PHENNY!

YAY!!!!!! WAHOO FOR DA PHENNY!

Obviously the family of Da Phenny was ALERT and on the ball yesterday when the Teaser photo popped up because it wasn’t long before they guessed it!    This is for you:

For Being FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of Jan. 16, 2018!

We had some other folks who guessed it right too – if you were one of those lucky peeps, help yourself to one of these to show off!

I knew the TEASER on Jan. 16, 2018 but I wasn’t FIRST to guess….oh well…..!

And if you were clueless or wrong……..you get a GREENIE!

I guessed WRONG on the Teaser of Jan. 16, 2018 but I got a GREENIE anyway!

Now our fabulous cheerleading team will memorialize this moment for you winners (and losers) with a cheer – take it away girls!

Yesterday we had a Teaser
That certainly was a real crowd pleaser
Miss Jackie and Da Phenny both commented FIRST
Everyone else must have been cursed!
Then back came Phenny ready for a fight –
He was the very first one to GUESS THE PHOTO RIGHT!
It was in Paris in the Musee d’Orsay’s old clock tower
He got that right – he must have SUPER POWER!
Phenny won TWICE so he got more than one badge!
The rest of you get screamed at by Miss Madge!

Thanks ladies – that was inspiring to say the least……………..who knows – next Tuesday YOU might know the Teaser and YOU might get your name into one of the team’s fabulous cheers!!

I promise to study super hard Professors so I can win something next week!

Me too although I might have a gig in Vegas next week doing my Elvis impression so might not be in class…..

And I’m going with him as his personal drummer!!!!

Elvis? Groovy!

Well we will see you next week in class everyone………………thank you for paying attention in class today.   We only had one sleeper and I do believe Sarge took care of him.

WAKE UP!!!!!!

ZZZZZZZZZZZ

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Another day dawns at Ding Dong School!

I came to school EXTRA EARLY so I could find the door!

Shall we begin?

We hope you liked yesterday’s Teaser photo……………..Mom found it on the internet………..BUT it’s a place she’s been to before with our Dad.    I’ll tell you more about that later but for NOW, we want you to know that we had a THREE WAY TIE for First Commenter!    We know Suzie and her crew will have their names in their cheer for today but in the meantime the lucky winners of a badge were:

Miss Csilla (KOLYTYI) , Miss Sharon (Friends Furever), and Miss Madi (Down Home In NC)

Each of you gets one of these!!!!!!

I was one of THREE First Commenters on the Teaser of Jan. 2, 2018!

Good job ladies – we had a TRIFECTA of beautiful ladies who were bright and early and on the ball to comment so quickly !!!!

YAY GIRLS!

Here’s another look at the photo from yesterday………………

A beautiful photo indeed………………………….and it seems that the Transamerica building on the far left MIGHT have been the hint some folks needed to figure this one out…………..but only ONE was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!!    Who was it???????

 Timmy from Timmy Tomcat

CONGRATULATIONS TIMMY!!!

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of January 2, 2018 !!

The photo is in fact JUST WHERE Timmy and his Dad guessed – The INNER HARBOR in Baltimore, Maryland.    It’s a very cool spot – the baseball stadium is down there along with wonderful shops and restaurants and so much to see and do.   They have water taxis to take you from one place to another because it’s such a BIG area to explore.    Our parents spent the night there in a nice hotel and had some wonderful seafood for dinner.    Want more info?   Click HERE to visit the Inner Harbor’s website.

There were some more of you who were “smarty pants” and got it right too!   If you were one of the lucky ducks (or cats, dogs, pigs, birds, humans), then you get to take one of THESE for yourself!!

I wasn’t FIRST but I was RIGHT on the Teaser of January 2, 2018 !!

Then of course there were the SEVERAL of you who tried but didn’t have a correct guess – you are still winners in our books though because you WON a badge too – this one:

I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of January 2, 2018 but I get a NEW YEAR GREENIE ANYWAY!

Congratulations winners (and losers) – you have survived the first Teaser of the brand new year!     I think this calls for a special cheer – right girls?????

Here we are and we’re feeling PERKY!
We walk a straight line and our sight’s not JERKY!
We have some winners for the brand new year
So pay attention and lend us your ear!
First Commenters were a crowd of three
Sharon, Csilla, and Madi but not ME!
Then we waited to see who would guess it right
There was only ONE RIGHT so there was no fight!
Timmy and his Dad were RIGHT ON THE MONEY!
Congratulations Timmy you’re a REAL cute Honey!
So those were the winners of the new years Teaser
We knew you’d enjoy it, it was a real crowd pleaser!

I foresee another Teaser next Tuesday.

Gee it doesn’t take a rocket scientist (or a fortune teller!) to know that there will be a Teaser next Tuesday……………………..good grief!

OK…..I foresee another Teaser next Tuesday that’s TOUGH!!!!!

Time will tell………………………which is my cue to remind you that if you think you have a photo that might fool everyone or at least be a challenge, please email it to the Professors!    We might feature YOUR photo one of these days!

Those professors can be long-winded……I’m waiting for class to be over so I can clean this place!

Alright class…..time for recess…..we’ll see you NEXT week for another Teaser!
