Lefty Loosey Righty Tighty needs to count as well.

I thought this was going to be a quiz about the cartoon.
Oct 19th, 2009 at 15:50 GMT
@shawnoc: Yeah, me too. A little disappointing...
Oct 26th, 2009 at 12:55 GMT
I love this style of puzzle but these specific ones left me unfulfilled. 'Half a Second' and 'Two-Step' should also be acceptable.

Not that anyone will notice or care, but I just wanted to say that this quiz was created almost a year ago, before the advent of user-created video/audio/picture quizzes. It was orignally solely made up of text only clues. I didn't think it was very good, but it was the best I could do at the time. Today I won an Editor's Pick from enough, and as Language editor, he chose my only user-created Language quiz. Because I had never really liked it, I quickly transformed the quiz into what I had originally wished it to be. I hope you all like it now.

I really thought the one with two THAW's was 4x4 (thaw by thaw). I think that's much better.

I was hoping this was about the cartoon "The Wuzzles" :(
Sep 27th, 2010 at 04:53 GMT
I was thinking 'ship of the line' - then got into a one track mind on that one.

Why does one "burn" go up and the other down?
Oct 31st, 2010 at 03:19 GMT
love these quizzes
Nov 18th, 2010 at 04:38 GMT
I wish you'd accept "foot by foot".
Jan 18th, 2011 at 05:52 GMT
Could someone please explain "teddy bear" to me? Otherwise, great quiz :D
Apr 15th, 2011 at 10:52 GMT
@Joslynn Theodore Roosevelt was known as Teddy, and naked = bare. I thought Lost Battle was 2,5 and 3,5 was take my breath away. Great quiz though. I was in the process of doing a word puzzle quiz myself.
Apr 15th, 2011 at 16:03 GMT
Good quiz. You might consider changing the font for 4,4 b/c the number 1 looks more like an "l" and really threw me off.

The saying is laughing all the way to the bank...I've NEVER heard of crying all the way to the bank...
Oct 2nd, 2011 at 03:43 GMT
Could you accept "(running) out of breath?"
Feb 7th, 2012 at 09:24 GMT
2,2 i definitely had... guess i worded it slightly different, but i dont remember how :/

Consider accepting "final straw" as well?
Jan 29th, 2013 at 04:18 GMT
Great quiz! I love Rebus puzzles, and its fun to be quizzed on creative thinking instead of trivia.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 04:33 GMT
The things my brain came up with.....
Jan 29th, 2013 at 04:40 GMT
After trying every variation of "choosing straws" and "picking straws," it finally dawned on me: of course, STRAW POLL! And... still no.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 04:43 GMT
Fun! I thought 1,4 could be 'fading fast', although I guess the true answer is a bit more common.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 04:56 GMT
The capital G in Scrambled Eggs confused me. Because half the letters were capital and the other half small I thought that would effect the answer.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 05:32 GMT
could you explain why 'face' flipped horizontally would translate to 'about face'?
Jan 29th, 2013 at 05:44 GMT
Great quiz! I love these kinds of puzzles!
Jan 29th, 2013 at 05:58 GMT
Good quiz, but I think that "face" one is a bit off in its logic. It's a "face" doing an about face, making it "about face face."
Jan 29th, 2013 at 06:37 GMT
Instead of "hygiene", I put "isolated gene", haha.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 07:03 GMT
I knew I was missing a really easy one with number 5, but my brain could not stop reading it as "pots stop".
Jan 29th, 2013 at 07:51 GMT
Should definitely accept 'the final straw'.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 07:53 GMT
Should accept 'to add insult to injury' as well.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 08:31 GMT

Shouldn't "gene" have another letter in it?
Jan 29th, 2013 at 09:40 GMT
4-way stop I'm assuming is an American term? I've never heard of it. Also don't get about-face, the rest of them fantastic.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 09:49 GMT
@mirador, yeah, 4-Way Stop is an American term for an intersection with a stop sign at each of the four inputs. I still didn't get it -- I guessed "teapots" (T pots) and "stop around", both of which seem fairly reasonable answers.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 09:51 GMT
I was a bit baffled by four-way stop too. Maybe it's the kind of thing where we would have a roundabout...
Jan 29th, 2013 at 10:28 GMT
Having the letters gradually get bigger in "breakfast" is unnecessary and misleading.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 10:34 GMT
"Four way stop" and "about face" definitely seem to be US-specific. Would "face the other way" not also be a viable answer?
Jan 29th, 2013 at 11:37 GMT
"About face" - yeah, don't see that. "Face backwards" seems more reasonable, right?
Jan 29th, 2013 at 12:25 GMT
I thought 'breakfast' was 'fading fast.' It still looks like it's fading rather than breaking.
Jan 29th, 2013 at 12:30 GMT
I feel strongly that "Tebow" or "Tebowing" (i.e. T- Bow ) should be acceptable for crossbow.
