Teaser Tell All

Standard

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) !!

WOOO HOOOO FOUR FIRSTIES!!

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!

HIPPITY HIP HOORAY Miss Jackie!!!

WHO WAS THE FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?

Drumroll Please!

CSILLA (Kolytyi)

THIS IS FOR YOU CSILLA:

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 Tell All Time

Standard

Good morning students!   Welcome back for more TEASER-IZING.

We’re here today to tell you who did well with their geography test yesterday and who might need to study a little harder…………………..AND of course to hand out badges and have a nice lunch in the cafeteria courtesy of our very own Miss Christmas – aka, Miss Dingleberry.

Is Miss Dingleberry married to Santa Claus?????

 

Oh no – Mrs. Claus is married to Santa but Miss Dingleberry is our Ding Dong School Cafeteria “Miss Christmas”……………….now that we have that straightened out, let’s talk TEASER WINNERS!    First up would be finding out who was our FIRST COMMENTER…………..WE HAD TWO FIRST COMMENTERS this week – two within the first sixty seconds we rang the school bell !

“TWO??? WHO?????”

 

THE CAT ON MY HEAD and FRIENDS FUREVER !!!

HIP HIP HOORAY FOR BOTH FIRSTIES!!!

CONGRATULATIONS YOU TWO – HERE ARE YOUR BADGES

I was one of TWO First Commenters on the Pre-Christmas Teaser of December 10, 2019 !!!

Then we had to sit patiently and wait to see if anyone figured out the Teaser photo this week which was a GUEST TEASER submission………………………it was in fact taken from an airplane (where else?!?!)………………and here’s another peek at the photo:

A beautiful photo indeed and it is a shot of the Florida Coast – often called the “Space Coast” because up at the top of the photo jutting out into the ocean is where the Kennedy Space Center is where the satellite launches take place!    WHO sent us the photo?    Miss Sharon of FRIENDS FUREVER who just so happens to live in Satellite Beach, Florida where she can see the launches with her OWN EYES!

THANKS for being our Guest Teaser!

My Teaser photo was used on the TEASER of December 10, 2019!!

GROOVY !

WHO was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER this week???????

Drumroll……..

TIMMY !    That’s who!!!    Concatulations Timmy………..!!

I was RIGHT RIGHT GUESSER on the Pre-Christmas Teaser of December 10, 2019! WOOOOOOOOT!

Were you also right?  We had multiple people guess correctly – If you guessed the Florida coast then YOU were right too!    Please take a RIGHT NOT FIRST badge!

Well I wasn’t FIRST to be right but I still was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser of December 10, 2019!

And those of you who were WRONG……well- you know the deal – you get a badge too!

My guess was WRONG on the Pre-Christmas Teaser of December 10, 2019 but I still got a badge!!

Congratulations winners and losers too!   

Well we can’t all be winners students – besides – there’s always NEXT week which will be our last class before Christmas week!     Now don’t be grumpy – let’s get the Cheer Team in to cheer you up shall we????

Lookie here we have some winners!
Give them all a Dingleberry Dinner!
Seriously though it was a good Teaser
A genuine geography test and a real crowd pleaser
First Commenters we had TWO
Friends Furever and Cat On My Head got through!
Then we waited to see who be the FIRST to be RIGHT
Thankfully we didn’t have to wait all night!
Timmy stepped up and was our winner
Now let’s stop this silliness and get some dinner!

Well girls I can see your stomachs have priority over entertaining the class today……………….somehow I’m not surprised!!!     Congratulations to our winners and the rest of you can console yourselves with an EXTRA dessert today!     Let’s go!

Lunch time students!   I hope you’re all ready to have a good lunch before you head home for the rest of the day.   We aim to please!

Tuesday Teaser Time

Standard

Happy Tuesday!   HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET?????

Clowie and staff are we secure and ready for class??

“Security check complete – ready for class Professors!”

Then let us begin!     We’re sneaking up to Christmas – after today’s class only one more “Pre-Christmas Teaser” to go before we have the DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS TEASER CLASS and special badges for those who win them that day at school.

“We’re DETERMINED to guess a Teaser in the next few weeks!”

Let us begin by sharing our RULES – which we are STRETCHING a little for today’s Teaser.    STRETCHING?    What does THAT mean???     Well, today’s photo is different – it’s not so much a CITY/TOWN as it is an AREA.    So you will be guessing what AREA it is in either a STATE (if USA) or a COUNTRY (if not in the USA).     So for TODAY ONLY here’s what’s required to WIN:

RULES FOR TODAY’S TEASER 

1.   YOU MUST TELL US WHAT AREA IS SHOWN IN THE PHOTO (example:  North Pole, California Coastline, Alaskan Tundra, The Med, etc.)

2.   YOU MUST TELL US WHAT STATE (if in USA) OR WHAT COUNTRY (if not in USA) THIS AREA IS LOCATED.

Got it?     Good – perhaps when we show you the photo some of this will make sense (or not).     Here are the badges you MIGHT win if you figure this one out:

Today’s photo is a GUEST TEASER and we will share who sent this little gem in when we have our TELL ALL class tomorrow.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT LEAVING A COMMENT:   Our wacky Graphics Department (you know who that is) keeps changing our blog theme for the holidays, so if you have trouble figuring out how to comment – look at the very bottom where links are and you’ll see the words LEAVE A COMMENT – click it!

“Gosh those instructions are CLEAR AS MUD…….But I’ll TRY!”

Well, I guess we might as well give this a whirl.    Sorry if it’s confusing but we will be more LENIENT than usual with guesses for this one………………….oh and you’ll be excited to see OLD SARGE back again this week to show the photo since our regular Security Guard is still on vacation for the holiday.    Sarge has promised to TRY and be nice in the spirit of Christmas!

 

Since we gave our lazy Security Guard yet ANOTHER day off -I’m gonna show you the TEASER photo for today myself…..

WELL, so much for NICE!    

So the question is – what AREA of the world was this photo taken in??????

Our Cheer Team will cheer you on as you try to figure this one out………………………….GIRLS?????????????? You’re ON !!

Well this photo is confusing and that’s no lie
We won’t be surprised to see the students cry!
But we honestly believe someone will figure it out
We’ll be saying their name tomorrow as we twist and shout
We hope YOU win like a good student should
Cuz Santa is watching and you all need to be GOOD!

OK girls………good job.    We’ll find out tomorrow whether your faith in the class was warranted or if everyone will be getting COAL IN THEIR STOCKINGS!!!     Is everyone ready for lunch???   Good – let’s go!

Pre-Holiday Greetings you dear little Ding Dong School students……the cafeteria staff has prepared some delightful choices for you today so please come through the tray line and pick your favorites!

Students we’ll see you tomorrow in class for the TEASER TELL ALL – who wins?  We’ll find out!   GOOD LUCK!

Teaser Tuesday Time

Standard

“Alright Team – let’s report in and let the Professors know all is secure for class today shall we????”

Good Morning Class!   TIME TO COMMENT!!!!

Thank you Clowie and Team for securing the school yard for us this morning.   Nice to know we’re free of any distractions or safety hazards so we can get class underway.     We’ve got a GREAT Guest Teaser today who sent us an amazingly TOUGH photo so students – straighten up in your seats and pay attention pullleeeeeze!

I’m awake…..don’t I look awake??????

I’m WEADY…..I mean READY.

First order of business is to give you the rules for guessing AND show you the “non-Halloween” badges that are up for grabs for the Teaser today.

What? No Fall badges?

No worries Penelope – we will have special “Thanksgiving” badges for the Teaser of November 26th!

Well as leader of the Ginger Patrol in class, we think some FALL badges would be cool.

You got that right Coop!

You betcha!

yeah!

Count me in too!

Gosh – I guess we’d better get the Graphics Department to come up with some FALL BADGES for next week’s class…………..now let’s get down to business – as we said, today’s photo is a GUEST TEASER………..let’s ask our Security Guard to bring the TWO photos in shall we????

Here’s today’s TWO Teaser photos Professors!

WHOA…….this will be a goodie……………please follow the rules and don’t use GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH………..you can google clues that you might see in the photos but just loading the photo up in image search is NOT using your brain!

I’ve got a brain but sometimes……….well…….you know!

Just do your best……tomorrow we’ll tell you who sent this great Teaser in AND who wins what badges!     Cheer Team is ready to pump you up for guessing so let’s bring them in shall we??

Hello class let’s rock and roll
Pay attention and don’t fall down the rabbit hole
These photos are tough and that’s the truth
Don’t grind your teeth or you might lose a tooth!
Do your best and you know we’ll cheer
If you’re a winner then YOUR name you’ll hear!
Our spandex cheer costumes sure come in handy
We all ate too much Halloween candy!

I think we all ate too much Halloween candy but that won’t stop us from heading to the cafeteria for lunch…………………..and then you students can come back HERE to study those Teaser photos and make your guesses.    Ready?   Let’s go!

Hello Students!   Time to fortify yourselves with a good lunch from your Ding Dong cafeteria.   Enjoy!

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Time for us to TELL ALL!

I better win something this week…..or I’ll do something DRASTIC involving my diaper!

Yikes – now that’s quite a threat!    Well, hopefully you win something because – well – the windows in the classroom have to stay closed.   HAHA

First of all let us tell you who our FIRST COMMENTER was yesterday when we started out here in class after our week off for some R&R.    Let’s have a DRUMROLL please!

We had TWO First Commenters in the first 60 seconds and they were:

Kitties Blue and Timmy Tomcat

For our double winners – each of you get one of these!

Oh boy! I was one of TWO First Commenters on the Teaser of October 15, 2019! WAHOO!

YIPPIDY DO DAAAAAH  !!!!!

Now moving on – let’s tell you WHO was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………………………….it was someone you all know and love because he is a “Frequent Right Guesser” here in class.   You may be jealous of his “frequent” status but you see, his Dad as done a whole lot of traveling and seen a whole lot of places!  Kind of gives you a leading edge when you have seen a lot of this big wonderful world right?    So his Dad whispers in his ear and tells him often the RIGHT location of the Teaser photos…………….who is this we’re talking about???

Timmy Tomcat ! 

Yes indeed – the very same Timmy Tomcat who was ALSO one of our FIRST COMMENTERS yesterday morning – you see, his Dad is also an early riser.   He gets up then shakes Timmy awake so they can be here whenever we go LIVE on the Tuesday Teaser.    He guessed the RIGHT place first though so he gets this:

I did it! I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of October 15, 2019 – I’m on a roll baby!

GOOOOOOO TIMMY!!!!

I’ll tell you where the photo was taken in a minute BUT we had some others who ALSO guessed right and you deserve your own special badge for that honor – grab one of these if you were also right with your guess:

I was right – I just wasn’t FIRST to be right with my guess on the Teaser of October 15, 2019. Oh well – next week maybe??????

Everyone who was WRONG also gets a badge to show off (or whatever) on their blog:

DARN DARN DARN, I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of October 15, 2019 but I got this swell badge anyway……

Now what about those photos?   Who was our GUEST TEASER who sent them in AND most importantly WHERE were they taken????   Here are the photos again:

These photos of the rather beautiful IRON BRIDGE over the River Severn in Coalbrookdale in Shropshire, England were sent in by our friend Jackie Avery at TWO DEVON CATS! 

SUPER PHOTO!!!

Here’s our THANK YOU badge for you Miss Jackie for being our GUEST TEASER this week with more of your fabulous travel photos:

My Teaser idea was used on the TEASER CONTEST on October 15, 2019.

So there you have it – our winners and our losers………………………..but lots of fun no matter how things turn out right?   This is after all – all about having fun and we try to do that here at Ding Dong Sheep School every week (except last week of course when we left you to fend for yourselves!).

Here’s the Cheer Team – they definitely remind us that this is supposed to be FUN:

Fee Fi Fo Fum
Who is SMART and who is DUMB?
If you won a badge this week then good for you
If you don’t like the outcome you could always sue.
First Commenters this week we had TWO
They were Timmy Tomcat and Kitties Blue
Then what do you know he made another appearance
Timmy was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER without interference!
Timmy had a DOUBLE win which is kinda rare
Maybe next week you’ll do it – we double dare!!

 

Well girls that’s a swell cheer except for one thing – just because some people didn’t figure out the Teaser photo location doesn’t mean they’re DUMB – they just haven’t traveled much or don’t QUITE know how to google the stuff they see in the photo to get some ideas as to WHERE the photo was taken!    You wouldn’t want us to call you DUMB would you just because none of you have ever been RIGHT GUESSERS – FIRST or otherwise?????    You all better toddle off to the cafeteria before this pile of students is turned loose to go get lunch.   See you chicks next week!

Did you just call us CHICKS????

GROOVY CHICKS…..

OK everyone – let’s go to the cafeteria and see what’s on the menu today!    We’ll be back in class again next Tuesday with more TEASER fun……..

Time to be little piggies everyone and pig out on lunch!   Hope you enjoy today’s menu selections!

What a pleasure it is arriving at school to find the Security Patrol performing their rounds!   Clowie and her Trainees make such great additions don’t they??

So today we will tell you about yesterday’s VERY INTERESTING Teaser!     We were so surprised that it was guessed as quickly as it was – but I’m getting ahead of myself here – let’s back up a bit.    First of all, let’s talk about WHO was our FIRST COMMENTER…………………Drumroll please?

Good job!   This is our “relief drummer” Roscoe.

Miss Sharon of FRIENDS FUREVER!!!

I was the ONLY First Commenter for the Teaser of October 1, 2019!!

CONCATULATIONS !!

So would you like to get the scoop on the Teaser Photo?    First of all we thank Sherri-Ellen Theilheimer-DeJonge for telling us about the amazing Mr. Tinguely and his totally amazing metal “THINGS” that he crafted beginning in the early 60s.   She had an old post card with a photo of the particular sculpture that we showed you which is known as “EUREKA” (or “Heureka”).

I found a photo of the same machine and it was in a different location so you could at least get some hints as to where the photo had been taken (note the snowy mountains in the background!)

The photo was taken on Lake Geneva, in Zurich, Switzerland…………………and the artist is Jean Tinguely – a very inventive artist indeed with quite a distinguished and interesting background.   I have several links for you to investigate for more info.    CLICK HERE for additional photos of “Heureka” and the artist, and if you REALLY want a treat, our wonderful Teaser Student Miss Csilla sent a couple of YOUTUBE links which are amazing to see AND hear to learn more about his sculptures – here is one of them:

Sherri-Ellen, this is our thanks to you for this fascinating and fun Teaser inspiration!!

My Teaser idea was used on the TEASER CONTEST on October 1, 2019.

WOW! WHAT A WEIRD MACHINE!

So who was the SMARTY PANTS who guessed this first????????????????   It was the person who sent us the AWESOME video of the machine in action!

Miss Csilla of Kolytyi !

Concatulations to you for being FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!   (and thanks for the video)

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of October 1, 2019!

Concatulations!

If you also guessed it correctly (and we DID have others who did) you each get one of these:

I guessed the Teaser photo of October 1, 2019 correctly BUT I was not the FIRST!

And if you were WRONG with your guess – you get one of these badges for your collection:

UHOH…..I guessed WRONG on the Teaser of October 1, 2019 but at least I tried!

WRONG AGAIN! POOEY!

So there you have it – another Teaser come and gone!

REMEMBER – NO TEASER CLASS NEXT WEEK!   We’ll resume with class on October 15th!

Cheer Team?   Take it away ladies…………….

What a weird Teaser we had this week
Watching that video we couldn’t even speak!
Quite the artist Mr. Tinguely was
Bet his artwork caused quite the buzz!
Our first COMMENTER was there when we went live
Miss Sharon sure knows how to jump and jive!
Then we waited to see if anyone could figure the photo out
And it wasn’t long before the Professors could shout…
WE HAVE A WINNER and who was that?
It was Miss Csilla with the WINNERS HAT!

You girls have fun on your week off next week – going to the beach?   Going for a motorcycle trip?   Going to Las Vegas to party?    Just be careful and stay out of trouble please!

Let’s cruise over to the cafeteria and see what’s cookin’ !
