    OK, I couldn't get it, and my son who is five said it's a 'cow'...lmao!

    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?

    It's time.

    Polar bears (IIRC) are born yellowish, and turn white when they grow up (which takes time);

    When old folks reminisce of times gone by, it can make them cry;

    It takes time to fill a man's bladder after having a few beers;

    A lady's hair can gets pretty mussed up after a few hours of not combing it;

    Age and time blunt the talents of celebrities;

    Likewise, it takes time to practice one's art, which is a good way to become a celebrity;

    It takes time to cook pancakes and to ferment grapes into wine;

    If you try to squeeze too much into an hour or day you'll feel like it "popped" or has passed you by;

    And if you look too long at time and its vastness, your brain will feel like it's "popped" from all the stress.


    That is so stupid. And yes I googled I'm not that smart to figure it out.

    Actually, that isn't the right answer....the clue is in the last sentence:)))
    You need to think like a 6yr old. No 6yr old would know all that stuff to come up with "time".

    Harvard grads couldn't get it,
    but most kindergarteners did.
    ;D

    The proper answer I believe is "no" there is no actual question asked in the riddle, thus there is no answer.. TADA!

    hey vicki.....because they didn't ask "what am I?", they asked "can you solve this riddle?"....it's really stupid, but I thought it would be fun. Didn't think people would get mad about it. Sorry for the trouble.

    Nobody got mad about it, they just needed a nitpickey nerd such as myself to pick up the fact that there actually is no riddle to answer.

    BE careful, my mental issues can spread throughout a group of people faster then a fire can spread through a dried out compost bin.
