Pre-Teaser Monday!


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?????


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


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


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.




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


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?


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!



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

Pre-Tease Monday


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!


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!


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


Tuesday Teaser


It’s a-snowin’ at Ding Dong School today!

Alright you kids – inside – now!   Before you get the FLU!  Don’t forget to COMMENT before you take a seat though – if you’re FIRST you’ll get a badge from the Professors.

ICK on the SICKS!

Mom makes me wash my hands every 5 minutes to keep away the germs!

OK class – settle down – that cold out in the playground got you fired up didn’t it!!

Professors I checked everyone for fevers, sore throats, etc. and sent one student home to bed!


Thank you Doctor KATZ, I appreciate you trying to keep us relatively GERM-FREE.     Now shall we continue with the reason we’re here this morning?    We have a TEASER photo for you and we have this feeling that you won’t have a clue.   We even blocked out one sign because it MIGHT have had a clue……..if there are other clues we sure don’t see them so without further ado, what say we give you the RULES for today then show you the photo????


So just do your best without the help of some computer program to get you there……………it’s more REWARDING anyway!   Speaking of rewards, here’s what’s on tap for all winners and you’ll find out who THEY are tomorrow!

Today’s photo is from a TEASER FAN so it’s a GUEST TEASER and we’ll tell you WHO when we tell you WHERE the photo was taken tomorrow in class.     The cheerleaders are BACK today and will cheer you all on after we show you the photo…………Mr. Security Guard – we are READY!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

Where could this be?????????????????   You may agonize over it as much as you like then give us your GUESS in comments.   Shall we see what our fabulous cheerleaders have in store for us today?

That Bobby dude was cute
In his little cheering suit
We might let him join us girls
To give the guy a whirl!
But that is just a “maybe”
Let’s get to the Teaser baby!
It seems like it’s too hard
Like giving you the JOKER card
We wish you luck my friends
As your agonizing BEGINS!

Thanks ladies…………..I’m sure you inspired the students to work hard to solve the TEASER today.   We’ll look forward to seeing you all tomorrow to cheer on the winners!

I can’t even figure it out SIDEWAYS!

We all cleaned our glasses really well and still can’t figure it out!!!!!

Tomorrow we’ll see if anyone gets it…………meanwhile, how about some food from our fabulous cafeteria staff – something to warm you up before you go outside for recess and freeze your “WHATSIS” off!

Alright boys and girls – This stuff will warm you up from the INSIDE out!

Broccoli cheese soup

Chicken noodle soup

Hearty beef stew

Fish stew


Vegetable soup

Hot chocolate bar

Enjoy!   We’ll see you tomorrow for the TELL ALL!


Teaser Tell All


Welcome to the Tell All Class!

Aww heck – I was having fun in the playground!


YES we are here and we are ready to fill you in with all the details about yesterday’s fabulous Teaser photo AND to hand out the first crop of our new and improved 2018 Teaser badges!


First up we want to let you know that we had TWO First Commenters yesterday morning – both of whom clocked in with a hello within two minutes of us going live………….WHO????????

Da Phenny and Miss Jackie!

You each get one of these totally fabulous new badges for being FIRST COMMENTERS:

Da Phenny and Jackie were BOTH First Commenters on the Teaser of January 23, 2018!


Our GUEST TEASER yesterday was our good friend Miss Jackie from TWO DEVON CATS!     It was a doozy………………Miss Jackie – this new badge is for YOU!

Thank you!

Here’s the photo she sent to us which we used yesterday:

She snapped this on her recent trip to Ireland………………..and it is a photo of the old Tankardstown copper mine near Bunmahon in Waterford County, Ireland!    Here is some GREAT information about the area AND some info on this mine……..You will understand why this area is known as the Copper Coast!    CLICK HERE

We had a lot of guesses on this one – most of the guessers thought that this was one of the old copper mines in Cornwall, UK………………….so many of you knew it was a copper mine – from the structures……..but only ONE person guessed FIRST that it was the mine near Bunhamon in Waterford County, Ireland and that was:

Carol from Home Sweet Home Wyoming!

This is for you Miss Carol!

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of January 23, 2018! YAY FOR ME!


We did have one other RIGHT GUESSER – Pipo, Minko and Mr. Jack Freckles – so you all get THIS:

For the Teaser of January 23, 2018

All of you who did NOT guess correctly get one of these little beauties:

Whaaaa…..I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of January 23, 2018!

I looked at it from all angles and didn’t know the answer!!  Guess I get a GREENIE!

How would our lovely cheerleaders like to come in and put a little sunshine into our winners day with a cheer in their honor – girls?   COME ON DOWN!!!!!!

First Commenters there were TWO
Scooby Dooby Dooooo
Da Phenny and Jackie were FAST off the mark
They left the rest of you asleep in the dark
Then we all sat here and waited……
A RIGHT GUESSER was rather belated……
We thought it would fool the whole crowd
But of you Miss Carol we’re PROUD!
You guessed it right on the money
You get a new badge for that Honey!
The rest of you better start reading
The Professors words you need to be heeding!
Next week you’ll get another chance
Now don’t make us set fire to your pants!!!!!

They’re just kidding about the pants right?????

I don’t haz pants…….

Hot Pants……..groovy man……

Alright alright – nobody is setting anybody’s pants on fire but I do hope that you will all study hard so that you might get a new badge next week in Teaser Class.

Meanwhile, Miss D decided that we needed another SNACK after class which we think is a great idea so please help yourself to a little SUMTHIN………..then go outside and get some exercise for recess!

Sorry to be a party pooper Professor Sammy but it’s raining outside now so maybe we can snack inside?????

Alright everyone – help yourself to a snack at your desk………………..we don’t want any wet heads – remember it’s flu season!

I don’t want any FLU STUFF!

Roast beef, ham, turkey!

Chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad!





Your Professors, Sammy and Teddy!


Tuesday Teaser


Good Morning Class!


Are you all ready for class today?    I hope you listened to Madge’s brother when he yelled at you to COMMENT so you might win one of our new badges – the NEW AND IMPROVED “FIRST COMMENTER” badge.   We’ll let you know tomorrow who wins that one AND all the others that are up for grabs today.

YES, well everyone is excited this morning so take a seat, put your microphone away and we’ll get started with class shall we????

Yeah, if you’re not careful you might get the DUNCE CAP!

Today’s Teaser is a GUEST TEASER…………………and we told you yesterday that you will get EXTRA CREDIT in class TODAY if you include in your guess WHAT kind of building you are seeing in the photo……..you’ll see what we mean when we show you today’s TEASER.

Now, remember we told you we’ve got all new badges and I want to show them to you again so you will see what’s at stake this WHOLE year in the way of badges!

Cool?    Well we hope you like them.    We will probably have a sprinkling of SPECIAL badges available for you when we have some sort of special occasion but basically these are the 2018 badges you can get in class this year.

Let’s get started – first off, here are the rules for guessing:

Secondly, let’s go ahead and bring in our Security Guard with the MAGIC PHOTO for this Tuesday so you can begin agonizing and figuring out WHAT THE DEAL is for the photo shall we?   Then we’ll get a big fat cheer from the girls.

Bring on the girls!!!!!

Yes Cooper we will let them do their thing as soon as the photo is posted!!   Patience my boy…….patience!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

And the losers will cry from sorrow!
So come on and be a smarty
We’ll have a Ding Dong School party
Miss D will serve some snacks
And give us all heart attacks……
Come on and do your best
Now excuse us but we’ve got to REST!

OK girls – go rest……………the students will be working hard to figure out the Teaser AND Miss Dingleberry is serving foodables out in the hallway today because it’s too cold to set up her food tent outside.    We’ll tell you all who won new badges tomorrow in class so be sure and show up at the usual BLOG TIME tomorrow………….you know you want to add to your badge collection right?

Groovy…..food…..far out

I hear Miss D is serving burgers – I like mine EXTRA RARE!

Our Specialties of the House…………..(burp!)

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

Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy

Pre-Tease Monday


Good Morning Students!

Time for us to prepare for tomorrow’s Teaser by getting all of you in the mood to study so you will be READY for the BIG TEASE.     Tomorrow we’ll be starting class at a TOP SECRET time only known to us and that means you will just have to keep an eye on your inbox or “early warning system” for our blog post to hit your mailbox!     Then it’s ON BABY!

First person to comment on tomorrow’s post will win a little sumthin-sumthin!  In fact – FYI everybody – we have ALL NEW BADGES starting with tomorrow.   New for the new year.   Yes we had some special ones for the actual New Year’s post but these are our 2018 badges.    Here they are:

So now you have a whole batch of new “collectibles” for your blog or your page wherever it may be…………..OR you can just keep them to yourself!

Tomorrow’s Teaser is a GUEST TEASER………………it’s also going to be EXTRA INTERESTING because we’d like for you to not only tell us WHERE the photo was taken but WHAT KIND OF PLACE IS IT?    I won’t say more about it but when you see the photo you will probably see what I mean.    You don’t HAVE to tell us what it is, but if you do – we will all be totally impressed!

Here are the Teaser rules:

Sounds like it’s gonna be a good challenge in class tomorrow!! I’ll be ALERT and ready!

OK you two – you may be cute but you couldn’t HAZ the answer yet – there’s no Teaser photo yet!



YEAH I’ll have a snack for you kids tomorrow – of course!!

Be Ready! 

Teaser Tuesday


It’s TEASER Tuesday!   Are you ready?

You’d better COMMENT now…..hurry up….then report to class!

Madge is taking names of those who aren’t seated!

Sorry we kept you students but we stopped by the cafeteria to make sure Miss Dingleberry was STILL serving fried food for us today and she IS!

We’ll be eating later but FIRST, the most important thing of the day – THE TEASER!    Hopefully you have all commented – Madge said she would make sure you were reminded to do that as soon as you got off the school bus.    Your NEXT challenge will be to examine the photo we will be showing you – actually TWO photos – and tell us WHERE the photos were taken!

Professors I just wanna say I studied EXTRA hard last night because I wanna be RIGHT today!

I foresee major disappointment ahead……

I think we will start things off with a cheer from our fabulous Cheer Team here at Ding Dong School…………Ladies?

Ricka Racka Boom De Lacka
Wicky Wacky WOOOO
Sorry Bobby but we don’t think it will be YOU
The Teaser photos are rather tough we think that you’ll agree
We’re RARELY wrong by now you know so we’ll just have to see
We know you all intend to win but we’ll bet you even money
Smart as you are and as hard as you try you just “ain’t got it” Honey!
We hope we’re wrong and someone guesses and a Right Guesser badge they’ll win…..
Cuz otherwise the next cheer we do will make your heads all SPIN!

Thanks girls…………that was a MOST interesting cheer – now whether it frightened all the students OR inspired them remains to be seen……….so what say we find out now shall we??????


We’ll show you girls a thing or two!

Some Cheer Team you are!

OK class settle down………….our Security Guard is on his way in to show you the photos for the Teaser……………….they are two very similar photos but we figured the more the merrier right?    Let me show you the RULES again before he puts the photos up on the board:

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

Did I say TOUGH?    I meant TOUGH………….but something tells me someone will guess this GUEST TEASER – just a feeling I have and I’m hardly ever WRONG!!!

It doesn’t matter if I look at it sideways – I haven’t got a clue!

Give it your best shot students…………………tomorrow we will let you know who wins what!    Here are the badges you can win today:

GOOD LUCK!   Now, Miss Dingleberry?  I’ll turn things over to YOU!


See you for the Tell All Tomorrow!!!  (burp)

P.S.   Fried Bird Seed for Kismet


Pre-Teaser Monday


Brrrrr…….hurry inside class and get warm!

Yes!   That’s what we wanna know – will you be ready tomorrow?

We will be gathering for Geography class tomorrow morning at a SECRET time (so be alert for incoming mail in the morning) and we hope to see your smiling face there.    We know that today is a holiday for our USA friends – it’s Martin Luther King Day…………so that means lots of extra time to study right?   Right!

I must say that the photo we have for you to examine and figure out tomorrow is not only a GUEST TEASER photo but it’s a goodie……….we think it’s got potential to be a TRUE TOUGHIE.   So make sure you get plenty of sleep tonight class – no foolin’ !

If you are the very first to arrive tomorrow at class – make sure and make a COMMENT – why?   Because you might win this:

Then it’s time to make a guess – and here are the GUESSING rules!!

If you are lucky enough to guess correctly and if you are FIRST to guess correctly then you win this:

If you are RIGHT with your guess but aren’t the first one to be right…….you get this:

If you are WRONG – just plain WRONG – then you still win a little something:

SEE???  Everybody is a winner!!

So now that we’ve got you prepped for class tomorrow………you can spend the rest of the day studying hard…………..cool huh??

Well, I don’t know about it being COOL, but it’s a good idea to be purrpared!

Yeah….even if we don’t know what COUNTRY to study, we can look at architectural styles or something like that to be SHARP!

We will look for you tomorrow at a SURPRISE time……..and good luck!

Sounds totally Groovy Professor Dudes…..

There’s a rumor that it will be “fried foods that are awful for us” day in the Ding Dong Cafeteria tomorrow! YAY!!!

Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy too!
