I quite liked this one. My idea was father for the first word instead of bather, which i think still makes sense.

I liked this one too and I also thought of Father for the first word but must admit that bather fits better.

As with the other two comments I thought of Father, this is a rather easy but fun teaser

At first it was a bit difficult. However, after I read the hint, I got the answer.

It must be a FATHER thing, I also followed that path. I'm back G.W.

Father.

Count me the odd man out. I didn't think of father.

It's strange how bather, father and lather don't rhyme....

Love this teaser!!

Father here too. Kinda funny how many went there instead of bather.

I too thought father. Considering, it's a word we use a lot more often than bather, which is probably why we thought that.

A very enjoyable teaser. Count me in as another "father" -Freud would have a field day with us!

Rather and lather just jumped into my head right away, bather took a minute longer. I don't look at the hint til after I get the answer, then I don't need to look. Easy but fun.

Gee, I thought it was 'Father,' also!

I said "father" too, lol "Bather" is so much more relevant...duh.

Since it had to do with bathing it was obvious to me that the first word was bather. I am glad I got it correct and it was fun and very easy. Father? Ha!

I love riddles - I love Braingle riddles - and I love this one.

Rated it highest.

Thanks for posting.

I have been sanctioned (that, for those of you who choose not to "look it up", means "punished") for my transgressions to date on Braingle.

I have had all three of my "Pos Karma" (the greens) points removed and have had one "Neg Karma" - a red -added,

The transgressions were described as "annoyances" and I was asked to stop annoying people.

Fair enough. I'm really an easy-going fella (at heart) and always try to "go along to get along".

So ... help me out, here. Change the little "tag" (far left on your screen) from "report if offensive" to "report if annoying".

That way I'll have a little better idea how to stave off my permanent discharge (no pun intended, here, so you don't have to look it up).

And ... later today or tomorrow I shall give you the first report on how well comments are doing in the absence of BadBunnie's annoying comments.

We have started keeping records of the data from each day of posting on Braingle. We select FOUR time periods each day and record the number of Users Online as a "snapshot" during each time period.

We propose to compare these - over time - to determine if:

01. There is any statistically significant increase or decrease in online users and comments, and

02. If the presence - or absence - of comments by a user tagged as "BabBunnee02" affects that statistically significant increase or decrease in either a positive or negative nature.

We are currently "Beta-testing" the software necessary to do this.

At this point (only a week's data) there appears to be no difference.

Stay toned.

According to my comment 3 years ago, I was among those who came up with "father". This time however, bather seemed rather obvious.

I also said father.

Apparently the warning went over BB's head. I guess he just can't help himself. What a pity.

I said father, too. .....and I am almost never wrong.

This was a cute teaser and fun and easy. Thanks for posting!

Doodles, just ignore him. Do not even acknowledge his continued presence on the site. Sort of an online version of the playground tactic of "I can't hear you".

I should have taken this advice myself at a much earlier time than I did. Things are much more serene now that he no longer exits to me.
BadBunnee02*us*
Jul 06, 2014

To HABS2933 &/or Doodles (and any others interested).

If my comments are EITHER offensive OR annoying to you, then click the "this is offensive" tag to the left on your screen.

It now means either "offensive" or "annoying".

I was sanctioned (lost Karma points) for being "annoying".

Enough "clicks" and it sets up a vote on the comment.

The vote asks "is this offensive comment offensive" and - I think - eight votes will get me PERMANENTLY banned or ... at least ... cost me another Karma.

Until that happens we will continue the collection of data on the question of the demise of Braingle.

Have a nice day.
