It had the components of a great riddle: When you read it, it makes absolutely no sense, and when you read the answer, everything comes into light.

It really make my mind think and wonder what is the answer. But upon comparing my answer and your answer it feels great especially when my answer is correct.

Good job! I was going with baseball up until the last line, which gave it away.... Then I backed up a line and it made perfect sense. Thanks!

A very imaginative teaser! You had me totally confused, until I read the hint! OMG! Keep those creative juices going! I will expect some more teasers, just a little bit tougher.

Grrrr... I think I hate riddles. I can't think of any I've ever gotten.

I do like riddles with answers provided though, like in the Hobbit, or here...

...so I guess I can at least say that this is a good riddle, and a successful one too, because it certainly riddled me.

Nice teaser but can someone fill me in on "Envy colors where I rest.
"
Does this refer to the tee box? or maybe the flags?
ItsJustWildman*us*
Aug 16, 2006

"Envy Colors where I rest" is referring to the green where the hole is. I played 27 holes of golf today so this one was easy for me. Great job though.

i would have never got it. this is comments so i'll say I don't know why but I didn't really like it. but it was a good teaser, i guess i just didn't really get it.

Mybe I should have read the title and guessed the answer! I thought of hair, though it didnt seem a convincing answer. Good teaser!

Great teaser. our title Green Acres made me think a the Pig. so you really left me in the sand trap.
BarticusAus*
Aug 17, 2009

It took me nearly a minute. I kept rereading it. From the title and color of envy I had lots of green in my head, then I looked at "Curse me when I stray from fair" with all this green in my head until "fair" became "fairway". Great job.

I don't play golf, so was out in left field, but a good one.

I don't know why, but hair kept coming to mind. Having a bad hair day and almost everything seemed to fit.
Very clever teaser, and my hubby is a golfer so I should have gotten that one right.

Took me a while to get it. Great teaser!
avonmaAus*
Aug 17, 2009

I agree with comments from others:
well written
I was trying to fit "hair" into it.
I could have figured it out if I had only looked up and seen "Green Acres!)
