That is a really nice teaser. Thanks for sharing it with me.
Apr 20, 2008

Easy, but I don't know if "father" and "mother" are exactly opposites of each other.
Apr 20, 2008

Very fine anagram teaser. Loved it!

great teaser. Good job
Apr 20, 2011

I don't consider Father and Mother as being opposites. But I liked this teaser
Apr 20, 2011

Have to agree with crazy man.
Apr 20, 2011

Very good teaser. For those who feel the need to unnecessarily search for fault in other's accomplishments, please explain how you don't understand what was meant in this short riddle by "opposite".
Apr 20, 2011

I agree with crazyman and best girl.To jonngalt what do you consider an accomplishment? Surely not a brain teaser. I consider an opposite as black and white. Mother and Father are not opposites. Period!
Apr 20, 2011

Not everyone considers them opposites, but as they are two sides to what most consider a 'normal' family, many people call their spouse their 'opposite number', and they say opposites attract, so this would fit also. It's all really a difference of opinion. I am glad that those who liked it did, and those that didn't, I hope you like others. TTFN.

I'm more puzzled by the commenters who are SO offended on behalf of the writer. There is a certain degree to which we profess knowledge when we make such a (puzzle) submission to a public forum, and being open to critique should come with the territory.

My pet peeve is mainly when the puzzle is itself misleading in some way. None of us is perfect and it's all meant to be for fun. The writer seemed cool about the challenges to the "opposite" issue so no harm done.

No need to suppress honest polite challenges in my opinion.
Apr 20, 2011

cool teaser - i liked it a lot. sure, mother and father may not be polar opposites, but they are parents of the opposite sex, so i think it worked.
Apr 20, 2014

Yaaay, I got it and when I figured out "mother" I asked myself what is opposite of mother? Of course "father" was obviously the opposite. One female, the other male. What is not opposite about that? My parents were sure opposites in all ways.
Apr 20, 2014

nice puzzle; my parents could not have been more "opposite"!!
Apr 20, 2014

Saw this one before. HAPPY EASTER everyone.
Apr 20, 2014

Glad you guys liked it. Happy Easter to you all. He is Risen!

Good teaser.

I gave it tops for fun.

And I tend to ignore most all the negative critiques.

This site is established for, and done by, amateur writers - for the most part - and is, therefore, tremendously creative, intuitive, and spontaneous.

As it should be.

Enjoy it for what it is. Lighten up.

Nice comments today!! great teaser!

didn't get the puzzle at all! But fun nontheless.
Apr 21, 2014

Thanks again.

This is my third comment on this teaser. Now in 2017, I am thinking I find love in the words father and mother, but I never felt passion for them. My husband, yes, my parents, hardly!
Apr 21, 2017

I'm with Babe on this one -- love my parents, yes; feel passion for them, no.
Apr 21, 2017

Although passion can be construed as lust or intense amourous feelings, these are not the primary dictionary definitions. Passion can just be very strong emothion. People are passionate about politics, music, and brain teasers. I am passionate about my entire family.

Mother and Father are not opposites in my book, but I'm not complaining.

I liked this teaser. This is one of those trivia factoids that it is good to keep in mind to pull out at those opportune moments.

Fun teaser!

TERRIBLE ( X 18 ) setup/hint
Apr 21, 2017

Another fun and easy teaser. I enjoyed it even though it was even easier than yesterday's teaser.
Apr 21, 2017

Glad you liked it, for those who did. Sorry to the others. As to the passion for parents, it's more the passion that they would have for each other to become your parents, not your passion for them.

And while you are at it, check out my other teasers. Thanks again.
