Tuesday Teaser Time!

Standard

Ding Dong School is in Session!  

Another confusing weather day outside but it’s ALWAYS confusing in class….

Don’t Forget To Comment!

Shall we begin class?

READY!

I hope you all are ready for your photo today…………we think it’s a goodie……….but that will be up to you – you who are guessing!     Before we get to that shall we share our rules AND badges up for grabs today?

You know the rules by now but we like to refresh your memories since we don’t know if you were out partying all night and aren’t quite AWAKE or WHAT……………..so that’s how we do this – remember to guess the WHOLE thing and not just a city.

What are the new Spring badges?

Perhaps tomorrow in the Tel All our stellar cast of cheerleaders will be singing YOUR name as they do their cheer – all you have to do is be FIRST COMMENTER or FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!    The other badges are “winnable” but Suzie and the cheerleaders usually only include the FIRST COMMENTERS and FIRST RIGHT in their cheer.

By the way today we have a special and unusual lunch from our Ding Dong School cafeteria crew.   The new Assistant Chef is from Japan and suggested that Miss Dingleberry let him whip up some Japanese delights including sushi for you to try!     Won’t that be FUN??????

Suzie – how about whipping these students into a frenzy so they don’t fall asleep…………..unless of course it’s too late for that……..

huh?….zzzzzz….what?..zzzzzz…

………huh? Who?…….zzzzz…

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

…zzz…huh?…zzzz

Students RISE AND SHINE
We hope you’re awake and fine
Your test today is rough
We think this Teaser’s tough
But then we aren’t brainiacs
We’re just cheering maniacs!
You’re the ones who are smarty
So wake up and join the party
Give it your best shot
Whether you know it or not
At least you will have tried
And aren’t just along for the ride!!!
RAH RAH ROOSHI
LET’S GET SOME SUSHI!

Gosh thanks you all – I’m sure everyone is WIDE AWAKE now…………………….In that case, Mr. Security Guard will you PULEEEZE bring in the Teaser photo for this week’s class?????

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Teddy

 

OK – get to guessing everyone…………….while you’re thinking about it – how about taking a little break for lunch?   You can eat at your desk and study the Teaser photo at the same time – just don’t get any teriyaki sauce on your paperwork.

Say – this looks yummy!   I, Truman Catpote, am gonna have a little of EVERYTHING!!!

Good luck Students!  See you for the Tell All tomorrow!!

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Good Morning Class!   Time to prep for tomorrow!

That’s right – we gather on Mondays to prepare for Tuesdays – then when Tuesday comes we prepare for Wednesday.    All for the love of figuring out WHERE a photo was taken.   But it’s fun!

Tomorrow at a surprise time we will go LIVE and you will be able to take a peek at a photo and tell us WHERE the photo was taken.   You will examine it, magnify it, look for clues, and hopefully will come up with the right guess and win a badge!     Your FIRST challenge though will be to COMMENT because if you are the first person to comment (or one of the first in the first minute) you win this:

You will need to follow our official class TEASER rules though and here they are one more time!

If you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, or not first but RIGHT, or even WRONG, you will still get a badge to show off on your blog or other social media!

YAY!

Yippeee!

I’m sure our fabulous Cheer Team would love to WHIP you into a frenzy to prepare you for tomorrow – right team?????

Better get out those books!
Or you’ll get some nasty looks!
If you aren’t ready to study
You’re in great big trouble buddy!
Our Profs are nice to the students
Especially that new chick Miss Prudence
But if you sit in class and SNORE
Some demerits might be in store!
So tonight try to dream about the globe
As you curl up in jammies and robe.
We’ll see you tomorrow in class
We’ll cheer you on with some sass!

Alright ladies thank you.   I do believe our students will be READY for Tuesday morning.

No reason to be scared…just study and you’ll be fine!

I can’t WAIT for Tuesday!

Now before you all go outside for some fresh air…………how about we enjoy a little lunch courtesy of our ever fabulous but somewhat cranky Miss Dingleberry???????

AND there are a few other things behind that counter of hers you can ask for too!

Southern Fried Okra

Fried onion rings!

Fried twinkies!!

Fried food may not be that good for us but it sure is GOOD!  

See you tomorrow class!   

Your Professors

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Ding Dong – Monday Calling!!

Time for the “warm-up” prior to tomorrow’s BIG TEASE.    We will get your juices flowing (please don’t make a mess on our floors though)………..and prepare you mentally for tomorrow’s photo guessing exercise.

Did someone get their juice on my floor?????

Tomorrow’s blog post with class at Ding Dong School will arrive in your inbox at a SURPRISE TIME……………and when it does, FIRST thing to do is comment……………if you are first or one of the first you get a special badge.  Big Deal right?   Well honestly there are SOME students here who LIKE getting badges……they are collecting them – so maybe you’d like one too?    It will look like THIS:

So being an EARLY bird is a good idea!!

Remember, the early bird gets the worm!

Then we move on to the main event…………the showing of this week’s photo.   Your mission is to figure out WHERE the photo was taken……….what city/town/village in what state/country – we want the whole scoop.   Here are the rules we have for guessing:

Easy huh?   Well, it might look easy but it’s not always easy figuring out WHERE the photo was taken that’s for sure.

No it’s NOT always easy – it can be TRICKY!

No it sure as heck is NOT easy!

We have our fabulous and always inspiring Teaser Cheer Team here to get you motivated for the Teaser tomorrow.   They do a good job of firing everyone up every week.   Suzie started out all by herself as our cheerleader and now our cheer squad has FOUR members…………who knows – one of these days Suzie is liable to have tryouts again and ADD to the team.

Va Va Voom
Clear the room!
Cheer team is present
With a cheer that is pleasant
No nasty words
Today will be heard….
You see report cards are due
We get graded too!
So we’re trying to behave
Our jobs here we must save!
So make sure and tell the teachers
You like being in our bleachers….
Cheering you all on
From dusk until it’s dawn
As long as we keep our jobs
We promise not to be snobs.
We’ll see you all in the morning – – –
This is your EARLY warning!

 

OK Team……………..apparently this is your best effort at “sucking up” so you get good grades and keep your jobs.   Right?    Well we already know that everyone loves you all so your jobs are secure.   Trust me.   Who else would be nuts enough to WANT to cheer at Ding Dong School anyway??!!!

Now Miss Dingleberry says because it’s such a pretty and sunny day, she’s set things up for you outside for today’s SNACK-FEST…………………..We will see you tomorrow here in class for the TEASER so be sure and study tonight and be WIDE AWAKE tomorrow………………….

I’ll see you all OUTSIDE – wash your hands first!!!!

Step right up students!   With every meal you get a handful of TUMS and a cup of Pepto Bismol!!

HEALTHY drinks to cool your tummies down!

See you tomorrow students!  

Your Professors, Angel Sam and Teddy too

 

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Yes it’s time to prepare for the Teaser tomorrow!

Hope you all have rested up and studied in the week since last Tuesday Teaser because it’s time to start the process ALL OVER AGAIN.    Tomorrow we will be showing you another tricky photo and you will be tasked with figuring out WHERE the photo was taken.  Are you up to it????

If you think you are……………..just remember that it will go LIVE at some undisclosed/top secret time different from the normal blog time.   That makes it even MORE tricky!

We also have some rules about guessing!

Also, if you happen to be an early bird and get here when the blog goes LIVE and are the first to leave a comment – oh boy do you get a reward.   A very cool badge you can put on your blog or Facebook page or wherever you want to – you can CROW about being the FIRST COMMENTER on our famous TEASER Tuesday!   Famous?  Did I say famous?

YES YOU DID!

OK, well maybe not famous but it IS a very popular day of the week around here.    You know you want to win a badge……………last week we had a FOUR WAY TIE for First Commenter so it’s not easy!

Just in case you need a little encouragement, I thought I’d ask the cheer team to slip by and give you a little pep talk (or maybe a pep cheer)!

Rickety Rack Rickety Rack
Tuesday’s coming and that’s a fact
No sireeeee no turning back
We’ll be in class tomorrow too
Sometimes this place is like a zoo
All manner of critters trying to guess
When everyone leaves this room is a mess!
Blood, sweat and tears are all over the place
And we have to look at Marge’s face…….
So we’ll see you then and don’t be late
Or we’ll load up our cheer with a pile of hate!

Gosh you all are just a little bit HARSH this morning aren’t you?

YOU HURT MY FEELINGS!!!!

Awwww……..now look what you’ve done – you’ve upset the students!    You girls need to go visit the hot tub!

Yeah you don’t wanna upset the students!!!!

We will be here tomorrow to guide you through the process of the Teaser……………..remember, there are prizes to be had if you deserve them!

So we’ll see you tomorrow!

Get your beauty sleep tonight!

Professors Sam and Ted (at your service)

Teaser Tell All

Standard

We’ll Just Tell It Like It Is!

Hello students………………..today’s class is all about handing out awards and giving you the scoop on yesterday’s Teaser photo………..which was a real doozy but STILL was guessed by more than one of you!

Was it ME????

Or ME????

Well boys – sorry to say it wasn’t either one of you but let’s start at the beginning………………first of all who was FAST ON THE DRAW and got here ahead of everyone else to make a comment????   We had a TWO WAY TIE!

Phenny and Csilla !

WOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!

Each of you gets one of these fabulous badges!

Two First Commenters on the Teaser of Feb. 27, 2018 and I WAS ONE OF THEM!!!!!!!!

Who was our wonderful GUEST TEASER this week?   Well, we threw you a curve ball on that one because it was the same person who was our Guest last week – Miss Annie at Animal Couriers!

SUPER DUPER PHOTO MISS ANNIE!

My photo was the Teaser on One Spoiled Cat’s Tuesday Teaser of Feb. 27, 2018!!

Where was the photo taken?????   And WHO was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER???????

This was the photo……………and it is the Basilique Saint-Sernin de Toulouse, France!

AND – the first RIGHT GUESSER was:

Miss Csilla!!!!!!   (yes she was one of the 1st commenters too!)

WOWZERS MISS CSILLA!!!!

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of Feb. 27, 2018 !

We did have some others who guessed it correctly – – – AND each of you gets one of these:

I was RIGHT but not FIRST on the Teaser of Feb. 27, 2018 !

And if you were WRONG WRONG WRONG, you get one of THESE THESE THESE!!!!!

UHOH, I was a WRONG GUESSER on the Teaser of Feb. 27, 2018 !

Now our fabulous cheerleaders who are TOTALLY HEALTHY and recovered from the bubonic plague, or malaria or whatever it was they had will give a cheer in honor of our winners!!

Two FIRST COMMENTERS we had
I think that they’re both very glad!
Phenny and Csilla were HOT
The rest of you were NOT!
You know who was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?
She’s a very snappy dresser!
It was Csilla AGAIN who was RIGHT
Her badge collection is quite a sight!
We think we have a photo that will fool
But you have learned well at Ding Dong School!
Next week you might be a winner –
Miss Dingleberry will make you a dinner….!!

Thank you team!   You all sounded great today – did you get your flu shots???????

Some of you weren’t happy when we sent you all off to the school nurse to get shots were you?!  

I won’t forget what you made me do!

I got a shot in my tushie!

Well it was for your own good!

Miss Dingleberry has some lunch for you to soothe your tushies and your tummies…………………I hope that cheers you up.   I know hot dogs and hamburgers always make ME happy!

Now doesn’t that make you feel better?    A full tummy and then you can go outside and play in the playground for recess!     What a deal!

Professor Angel Sammy and Teddy too!

 

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Don’t forget to COMMENT!!

Good Morning……….time for the Teaser – are you ready?

Here we are – gathered together to try and figure out WHERE today’s photograph was taken…………could be anywhere on the globe……..but WHERE?   That’s your job to figure out!    I hope you’ve COMMENTED because you MIGHT win a badge if you are FIRST!

THIS ONE!   We’ll tell you tomorrow who gets one!

So onward we trudge to the object of today’s class…………..the piece de resistance – guessing the location of the photograph…………here are the rules you MUST follow when you guess:

Clear????

Clear as mud…..

I TOTALLY understand!!

Our photo is from a Guest Teaser today………….and before I ask our Security Expert to show you the photo, I thought you might enjoy hearing from our Cheerleaders – WHO by the way – are all present and accounted for today after Suzie was left on her own yesterday!

Your whole team is here
We’re ready to cheer
No coughing, wheezing, or shedding of tears!
We may not be wealthy
But we’re finally healthy
So we’ll try to inspire
Set your minds on fire!
Good luck with your guess
We wish you SUCCESS!!
Tomorrow we’ll be back
We won’t cough, sneeze, or hack…
It was just a tummy bug
We had some accidents on the rug…
(whoops)

 

Thanks you all – you may be dismissed and we suggest you stop by the School Nurse’s office for a shot or pill or bottle of cough syrup or something before you leave!

Cough Cough – OH Noo! I’ve got the creeping crud!

Oh I’m sure you’re just fine……………probably just the heavy perfume Suzie has on today – you may be allergic to it.    Let’s move on.   Security Guard would you please bring in today’s Teaser photo for the students?

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted – sorry I was late….I got a flu shot on my way here – I heard some of the cheerleaders were SICK!

Where was this photographed???????  

Hmmm….this is a toughie!

Remember if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, or if you are RIGHT with your guess but not first, OR if you are WRONG, you get an appropriate badge tomorrow !

Groovy……

Well I’m glad you think it’s GROOVY – we’ll see how well you all do with your guesses!    In the meantime, I’m happy to say that Miss Dingleberry has not let us down – you may sit AT your desks and study and work on research as to WHERE this photo was taken.    She has made it easy for you to stay in the classroom because she has just snacks for us today instead of a big lunch.   Pick your snacks, sit at your desk, and WORK HARD!     We will convene class in the morning and announce who wins what!

YEAH WHADDAYA WANT KID?????

Enjoy your snack and we will see you in class tomorrow!

The Professors

 

Pre-Teaser Monday!

Standard

It’s Monday!   Time for Pre-Teaser Class!

ALRIGHT! Let’s see a little hustle in your bustle students – time to get to classrooms!

Yes dear children….do enter the calmness of the classroom….I have been taking yoga and learning how to be ZEN……I am a much CALMER Sarge!!!!

Holy cow – Does Sarge have amnesia or somethin’ ???

Who stole our mean Sarge and gave us this Zen guy???

Hello Class!  Happy Monday………looks like Sarge’s pants injury and subsequent hot tub experience has turned him into “Mr. Nice Guy” but you have to wonder just how long THAT will last!!

Anyway, welcome to Geography class where we prepare you for tomorrow’s guessing game – “Where Was The Photo Taken” ???     We will be showing you a photo tomorrow at a SURPRISE TIME with our TEASER POST and you will have to figure out where it was taken.   Fun huh?   Well yes in fact it IS fun.    Just ask any of our TEASER WINNERS – they’ll tell you!

We have a GUEST TEASER tomorrow too…………….now here are the rules – I know most of you know them by now but we might have a visitor or new follower who doesn’t………..

Then on top of that when our post tomorrow goes live – you can hurry here to make a comment on the blog and you might be the FIRST COMMENTER – you will earn yourself a reward!

For some getting an award is no biggie for some others, they like to mention their wins and badges on their blogs………and we’re happy about that too.    There are more badges to win as well – if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER or a RIGHT GUESSER but not the first, or even a WRONG GUESSER you still get something:

So make sure your brains are well rested tonight and ready to examine tomorrow’s photo.    Who knows – you may get something for the effort!     Speaking of effort – you will be happy to know that Miss Dingleberry – who went ALL OUT last week for Valentine’s Day with her fabulous food spread for all of us, has a snack after class for all of you today.    Nothing earth-shattering but still a snack and since it’s a beautiful sunny day, you can take it with you outside to play in the playground at recess.    Fabulous huh?

A little snack is better than no snack at all !

Miss Dingleberry?     Are you going to serve your snack in the schoolroom or outside?

It’s a swell day out there – I’m setting up outside in the SUN!!!

OK students – we will see you tomorrow at a SURPRISE time then for Teaser – enjoy your treat outside and your recess.

Yeah kid?   What’ll it be?????

THIS ICE CWEEEM IS GOOD!

Don’t get sticky ice cream on the swings!

oops – I dropped by ice cream cone through this hole!!

See you tomorrow in class!   Professor Angel Sam and Teddy too

 

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Quick!  Comment on this post!  You might be first!

EYES FRONT! SCHOOLBOOKS OPEN! TIME FOR CLASS!

Man oh man this is like being in the Army!

Time for the Teaser!    You all look alert and ready for class today.   Now I’m sure you all want to know if Sarge is OK – he had that little – er – um – ACCIDENT yesterday when he began his cheer but fortunately it was only his pants that were injured.   Sarge is at this moment resting comfortably in the school Jacuzzi in the teacher’s lounge.

So let’s get down to business – the business of TEASING.    Today we have a photo that is NOT a Guest Teaser………..that’s all I’ll say about THAT.    But it will be up to all of you to figure out WHERE that photo was taken.    You will study it and then make a guess based on what you see in the photo or what you THINK you see and will also follow these rules!

If you are the FIRST COMMENTER, FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, A RIGHT GUESSER NOT FIRST, A WRONG GUESSER – you will win an appropriate reward/badge to show off to the world!

Tomorrow as you all know is Valentine’s Day so we will be celebrating in class…………..Miss Dingleberry will have special snacks for us too – she and her cafeteria staff are working on that today so we won’t have a snack today.

WHAT???? NO SNACK?

SERIOUSLY???????

NO FOOD AT ALLLLL?????

Now you all have a good breakfast at home every single day before you come to school so I know you’re not STARVING – and our cafeteria staff is hard at work to make your Teaser Tell All/Valentine’s Day special so just be BRAVE.

I’ll be brave…….sniff……

Let’s have our fabulous Security Guard come in with today’s photo so we can get going on the TEST OF THE DAY – WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN???????

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

WHERE in the world is this????

Now to spur you on and get you going, here’s a cheer from our fabulous cheer team – I know it’s a highlight of class for us every Tuesday – so COME ON IN TEAM!!

Rickety Rack Rickety Rack
We’re excited – you can’t hold us back!
Today is Teaser and we’re cheering for YOU
But where the Teaser is from we have no clue.
Hope you studied like good boys and girls
This photo could be from ANYWHERE in this whole wide world!
Do your best and tomorrow we’ll say your name
If you aren’t a winner you’ll have no claim to fame
Ricky Ticky Too
Good Luck To You!

Thank you Team!

I swear this class grows bigger every day……….

Even though we have no big snack today, I can’t turn you loose for recess without something WARM in your tummy so please have some hot chocolate……………I brought it in from the teacher’s lounge.

Hot chocolate bar

Your Profs, Angel Sammy and Teddy too

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

I think I hear the school bell – we’d better sit down before Miss Grumpy Marge comes in!

I foresee some demerits coming your way if Marge hears you!!!

I heard that! Two demerits for you!

Hello Students……FIRST – a reminder to COMMENT – you might be FIRST!  If you are you’ll win:

Shall we move forward with class?   Good.   Just as a reminder to those of you who need one that the rules for today when it comes to guessing WHERE the Teaser photo was snapped are STRICT – here they are for you to tattoo on your arm so you REMEMBER!

Do your best – that’s all we ask.    We know how easy it is to have your computer figure out where the photo was taken but we think it’s more FUN to just plain use your eyeballs and brain (assuming you have those).

Gosh I’m the class dunce and even I have a BRAIN!!

Today we have a TWO-PHOTO-TEASER.     Two photos from the same place.   Maybe that will give you TWICE the hints or maybe it will be TWICE as hard.   We will find out today won’t we?!    If you are the FIRST to guess correctly where the photos were taken here’s what you get:

IF you’re RIGHT but you aren’t FIRST:

And if your guess is WRONG…………….well…………you get this:

Let’s get the show on the road shall we?

Let’s GROOVE!

The first part of today’s “show” is special because Suzie and her girls have a big surprise for you……………

Holy mackerel look who’s here!
Bobby’s with us to jump and cheer!
We decided to invite him to join our group
He’s not only cute but he’s one brave troop!
So now we are four and we think you’ll agree
Bobby fits right in and suits us all to a “T” !
Flippity Flappity Foo Foo Flobby
Welcome to our new Cheerleader Bobby!

Congratulations Bobby and good luck – I think you might need it.

Let’s bring in our wonderful and “oh so efficient” Security Guard who will display TWO photos for your viewing enjoyment this morning – as soon as you think you know where this is, GUESS AWAY!    Tomorrow at the TELL ALL we will hand out awards……….you know you want one!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

IDEAS???  Where is this????

Hmm……this is a toughie!

Good thing I gots new eyeglasses yesterday so I can SEE the photos!

I’m REALLY concentrating!!

Miss Dingleberry made us a Mexican feast today.   Don’t ask me why she chose that but she did and I’m sure we’ll enjoy it.   Maybe she’s adding a little HEAT to our diet since it’s colder than cold outside?     I would still suggest you NOT add any extra hot sauce.    You might have ISSUES on the bus on the way home from school today!

I’ll bring some extra toilet paper wiff us on the bus home!

Milkshakes!

SEE YOU TOMORROW FOR THE TELL ALL! 

**** and good luck on the ride home today on the bus ****

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

What Day Is It???????   Oh yeah – pre-Tease Monday!

It’s another cold and icky winter day too…..come in students – let the day begin!

Hurry Students – Time for Class to Begin!!

Happy Monday kids.   Hope you all had a good weekend.    Today we must buckle down and get ready for the BIG TEASE tomorrow so I hope you’re well rested and ready to hit the books!

HIT THE BOOKS???? HIT???? WITH WHAT????

Well not exactly HIT as in WHACK – we’re going to STUDY the books.   You want to be ready to make an educated guess tomorrow on the Teaser photo when you see it right?    Right!

YES YES I WANNA KNOW THE TEASER!!

Before we do that, let’s go over the rules for Teasers – same rules we have every week but just in case we have some newbies joining us, here’s how we do things around here on Teaser Tuesday when it comes to figuring out where the photo was taken:

 

You will have all day tomorrow to figure out where the photo was taken……………..so take your time but remember, if you are FIRST to guess right you get a special badge.  In fact, if you are right but not first or even WRONG you still get a badge and we will award those on the TELL ALL post on Wednesday!

Also, if you are the very FIRST person to COMMENT on the blog tomorrow you will win something too – just remember that tomorrow’s blog post goes up at a SURPRISE time – it’s different every Tuesday so you won’t know when to be here – you’ll just have to be on your toes!   If you’re first this will be yours:

You know you want a badge to show off so be ready!

I can hardly wait Professors!!

Well I like to see excitement but you might be just a little bit WOUND UP there Buddy!!

Miss Dingleberry decided that for today’s pre-recess snack, she’d serve up some of her famous sub sandwiches.   I think it’s a great idea.    Her kitchen crew knows how to whip up a sub like nobody’s business.    After you have your snack you can go out for recess but bundle up – it’s cold enough to put some frost on some areas of your anatomy that you might not want icicles on!!

Yeah I’ve got that Valentine’s Day hairnet again….remember – no jokes!

Turkey Sub

Tuna sub

Steak and cheese sub

Deli meat sub

Hot chocolate bar

 

OOPS…..I think the snow is a little deep!

I’m bundled up for outside!

We’ll be warm too!

 

Remember – surprise time tomorrow!   By the way, Suzie has a surprise too!

Professor Angel Sam and Teddy
