What Am I?

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

I have two arms and a back,
Supported by four legs.
But there is something I do lack,
Actually, I have no eyes to see.

I also cannot move around,
Or at least, not on my own.
Unfortunately I can make no sound,
Except perhaps a squeak.

If you chop off my head,
You are left with a hair.
If you chop off my tail,
Only tea is left there.

One more clue I will add,
Is that you often use me.
Yet you barely ever notice,
In fact I'd much rather be a tree.

What am I?

Got the answer! The only line that confused me was cutting off the tail (I don't drink tea). Nicely done!

Kinda easy, but fun! I didn't get the tea, since I don't drink tea, but the rest was great! Good job!

Way too long a poem (but very nicely constructed) It only needs one or two verses to guarantee getting this one right.

Right away it was a chair. The tea took some thinkology. Without that it would have been too easy.

Got the chair part straight away then got mixed up at the next bit & thought it might be seat backwards

It was too easy and not very creative.

That was really easy, but I thank you for posting it since they're usually not easy enough for me to figure out! I almost started to second guess myself when I saw the "cut off my head and tail" part

i got it in the first vers. but the tea thing confused me.... ....maybe i can blame it on......oo i know, the fact that i don't drink tea!! yea, that is a good excuse!!

I love chai! Yum! You all should try it!

Easy , but super clever!!

Aug 29, 2005

this was cool. i didnt realize that it could be a chair. i was way off. i thought it was like a plant or sometin.

Aug 29, 2005

Yeah, the "head" and "tail" verse really had me doubting myself. Made it more fun that way.

EXCELLENT !!! I GOT IT!!! The hair tea thing got me, but when I read the answer, it made sense.
A fun one!

Very good job...Clever, and it "stumped" me! (haha, no pun intended)
bagogirlAus*
Aug 29, 2005

YAY! two in a row! im on a roll (Im only in middle school) i think that was very clever because the tea thing could really stump people but i didn't get it so i just still thought it was a chair and not pay attention to the tea stuff!

I guessed correctly! But I didn't understand the tea part. I guess it's because I'm not all that familier with teas.
Tracey2209Aca*

I got it in the first line or two. Very easy!
jabdrAus*
Aug 29, 2005

I got it immediately....and immediately decided that I was wrong. Didn't put together the hair or chai at all....and thought I was so dumb to pick the 'obvious' chair...and not the 'right' answer. Loved it!

new to this, I liked it, made you think outside the box

Another good one for this same answer is straight out of Golden Eye (James Bond movie):

Boris: You sit on it, but you can't take it with you.
......
Natalia: What other name do you call your bottom?...... He plays word games. It's what you sit on, but you can't take it with you....
Bond: chair.
(always got the answer doesn't he?)

Like others, I couldn't get the "chopped off parts", but the rest of the teaser fit the answer "chair" so well that I decided to go with it anyway.

I didn't get the tea and hair parts either but figured it must be a chair. Fun teaser!

Explanation;

Chop off the head= Remove the C and you have hair.
Chop off the tail= Remove the R and you have chai.
Hope this helps.
hubbamutt777tus*

i thought it was a wooden rocking horse. for "chop off my head" i thought it was literally and you'd still have the tail, but i got stuck on the "chop off the tail" part cuz i dont drink tea! great job!

NICE1!!!
avonmaAus*
Oct 20, 2009

I had "chair" all along until you started chopping off pieces! I kept picturing the "thing," not the word, so I didn't get that part. And I LOVE Chai Tea!!!
Very clever!

It only took two lines on this one! Chair was so very obvious that I thought i must be wrong! I was not. Easy and I lke easy!
Babe*
Oct 19, 2012

Sorry! I forgot to mention that my kitchen chairs do not have arms. That could have been a boo boo to the whole idea. It should have said,"Some of us have arms, while others do not!." Oh well, most people still got it!
gaylewolfAus*

I loved this one - thanks for posting!
HABS2933Aca*

Like Babe, I had it by the 2nd line but also thought there may be a twist to it. Two of the four chairs in our kitchen nd two of the ten in the dining room, do not have arms but the two chairs that sit and the ends of either table are all "Captain's Chairs" and therefore have them. Still an enjoyable teaser, even if a bit easy.

I liked a simple one this morning-
I would have gotten the chai tea if I hadn't thought I was to still leave off the 'c' (head).....duh! Had it, regardless!
cutebugAus*
Oct 19, 2012

Well written, but extremely easy.
tripleteam5*
Oct 19, 2012

overly long as 1st stanza gave it to me. However, is clever and that much skill at poeterizing (my own new word LOL ) is to be admired. I alway credit that which is beyond my skills/patience levels

A good one but an easy one Odd rhyme scheme, I must say... ABAC DEDF GHIH JKLK?
