Brain Busters

Ditloid Edition

ts-brain-busterYou all may know that I hate everything, but one thing I definitely do not hate is trivia. Every Tuesday I drag the boyfriend and friends to my local hole in the wall for Quizzo Trivia (It’s nationwide too!) And every week the Bonus rounds make me want to brick the host in the face. So I thought I would share some of my pain with all of you.

Here’s the answer to last week’s riddle:

“Is the door leading to the place you come from on the left ?”

If he comes from Heaven:

  • If Heaven is on the left, he will say yes.
  • If Heaven is on the right, he will say no.

If he comes from Hell:

  • If Heaven is on the left, he will say yes.
  • If Heaven is on the right, he will say no.

So, independently of whether he comes from Heaven or Hell, if Heaven is on the left he will say “yes” and if it is on the right he will say no.


Today’s brain buster is a Ditloid.

Example: Twelve hours in a day=12 H I A D, or a more Squee! oriented example would be: To me, in my opinion=TMIMO

Guess the phrase:

Q: S L T 8 M A 14 S T R T E

  3. Question: S L T 8 M A 14 S T R T E

    Yeah, for some reason this just got the Sesame street song stuck in my head…”can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame street?”

    I went to the Internet and Damn! I would never have gotten that.

  4. Um. I got nothing. But I LOVE bfm’s suggestion. I am 100% confident that it is not the “desired” answer. But I am 100% confident that it answer is “yes!”

  5. I got “Slater” at the beginning for some reason and now I keep thinking of Saved by the Bell.
