    I turn polar bears white
    and I will make you cry.
    I make guys have to pee
    and girls comb their hair.
    I make celebrities look stupid
    and normal people look like celebrities.
    I turn pancakes brown
    and make your champagne bubble.
    If you squeeze me, I'll pop.
    If you look at me, you'll pop.
    Can you guess the riddle?

    I make celebrities look stupid (Dunno?)
    and normal people look like celebrities. (Dunno)
    I turn pancakes brown (Dunno)
    and make your champagne bubble. (Bubbles = water?)

    If you look at me, you'll pop. (Dunno)

    Hate to trip you up at the first hurdle,
    but snow isn't what makes polar bears white,


    edit:before somebody gets smart, yes, i am aware that neither their fur nor their skin are white


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Regional South Moderators Posts: 15,247 Mod ✭✭✭✭rebel girl 15


    it can be associated with water and air

    The sun?

    Something to do with age / time?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 589 ✭✭✭vincenzo1975


    imagination/creativity

    or

    DNA

    BOTH CAN BE ARGUED TO FIT

    TIME
    The time has come,
    winter is here
    and those yellow bears disappear.

    The time has past
    as man looks back with a sigh
    and a tear in his eye.

    As time is held
    boys cross their legs
    but of course the toilet begs

    As time marches on
    Girls loose their blush
    and swap a comb for their brush

    As time passes
    For those held high
    their end is nigh

    As time catches up
    Everyone is equal
    when we get to the final sequel

    As time turns
    Without it we have flour and water
    With it we have breakfast for my daughter

    As time revolves
    How does one turn water and wine
    into something so fine

    As time runs out
    The more in a minute you try and squeeze
    the less you can do with ease.

    As time ticks
    All the time that has past
    man cannot comprehend something so vast.

    So I guess the answer is time

    If the answer is "time", then maybe the thread title should be changed to "The World's Worst Riddle".


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,398 ✭✭✭Phototoxin


    but time does not cause these things. Time is relative anyway.

    I have a puzzle for you

    What has spines but no legs
    leaves that do not fall
    wisdom that it cannot speak
    and wood which cannot grow?


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Regional South Moderators Posts: 15,247 Mod ✭✭✭✭rebel girl 15


    The answer to the riddle is
    Pressure
    I turn polar bears white
    and I will make you cry.
    (pressure in the eyes forces tears out)
    I make guys have to pee (pressure in the bladder)
    and girls comb their hair. (peer pressure)
    I make celebrities look stupid (they do stupid thing when under the pressure of the media!)
    and normal people look like celebrities. (Normal people succeed under pressure)
    I turn pancakes brown
    and make your champagne bubble.
    If you squeeze me, I'll pop.
    (Pressure in the eardrums in an aircraft)
    If you look at me, you'll pop.
    Can you guess the riddle?

    Is the answer to the other riddle
    a book?

    It's time. From the old poem

    The time has come,
    winter is here
    and those yellow bears disappear.

    The time has past
    as man looks back with a sigh
    and a tear in his eye.

    As time is held
    boys cross their legs
    but of course the toilet begs

    As time marches on
    Girls loose their blush
    and swap a comb for their brush

    As time passes
    For those held high
    their end is nigh

    As time catches up
    Everyone is equal
    when we get to the final sequel

    As time turns
    Without it we have flour and water
    With it we have breakfast for my daughter

    As time revolves
    How does one turn water and wine
    into something so fine

    As time runs out
    The more in a minute you try and squeeze
    the less you can do with ease.

    As time ticks
    All the time that has past
    man cannot comprehend something so vast.

    To the original riddle: How does that turn polar bears white? And pancakes brown? I'll go with the 'time' solution. Also because that was my guess too :)

    Yeah, and the "squeeze me and i'll make your pop" and the next line? Really doesn't make much sense...

    And the girls comb their hair bit is stupid.
