Simply Simple

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

My first is simply a vegetable, delicious, round and green.
My third and fourth are sound asleep, as plainly can be seen.
My fifth is fifty, clear enough for any riddle-setter.
Two of my second stacked on their sides will give my final letter.
Now that my second has my parts, fit them together well.
You see me now before your eyes; it's plain for all to tell.

My fifth is fifty, clear enough for any riddle-setter. - L (Roman Numeral)

Two of my second on their sides will give my final letter. - E (Take 2 U's and stack them sideways.)

Now that my second has my parts, fit them together well. - Now that YOU (u) have my parts...

Apr 19, 2008

Had me PUZZLED for awhile. Good eye opener.
Apr 19, 2008

WOW I was first today. Did everybody sleep in?
Apr 19, 2008

Yep. I was puzzled also at first, but got down to business and actually solved it. Great teaser. Thanks for posting, GrilledCheese.
Apr 19, 2008

very nice...
Apr 19, 2008

Wonderful riddle, do more!
Apr 19, 2008

I was goin for Pizza too
What threw me was the "U" and why it was Second?

Had a lot of fun with this I get 50% for solving half !!

NOT TOO CHEESY eh? Grilled Cheese.
Apr 19, 2008

Great teaser, took me a minute to get started, but then it came easily. Loved it, want more.
Apr 19, 2008

Clever and cool teaser!
Apr 19, 2008

Like second hand Rose, I didn't get the U, and unlike most, I didn't get the 'puzzle'. But I did like it (Is Simply simple anything like hardly hard?)
Apr 19, 2008

Definitely wasn't simple...until I looked at the answer. The 'E' part seems a bit of a stretch, though. Nevertheless, good PUZZLE.
Apr 20, 2008

Easy one, loved it!!!
Apr 21, 2008

Good teaser. Had me stumped.
Apr 21, 2008

I GOT ONE!! If I can do a puzzle it must be too easy. Good job making this one.
Apr 22, 2008

Hey Grilledchese, I got this one I'm so happy I never get the riddles right
Thank you
May 02, 2008

I loved it and I got it. I was thinking pizza at first but then I finally realized two "u"s on their side and on top of each other would look like and "e". I REALLY LIKED IT!!!!
Apr 19, 2011

I got part of it, but the two u's stacked together gave me a w the way I print. It was a cute one though and fun trying to figure out.
Apr 19, 2011

PUZZLED ME!! I got the P ZZ and L but couldn't think of a word which had those FUN!!
Apr 19, 2011

Took me a second look, put I got it. At first i was thinking pizza too, but couldn't figure how the L fit in, until I realised I had missed the two Us hint. Then it became obvious. Yes, the two u's stacked on their sides don`t make a perfect E but what other letter could it even remotely resemble?
Apr 19, 2011

OH the irony of a riddle about a puzzle
Apr 19, 2011

Apr 19, 2011

Hmmm ... rated this one easy the first time around, but not today -- it had me puzzled for sure. I think my brain wants to be asleep today for some reason. It has a mind of its own.
Apr 19, 2011

I was trying to make pizza too then I started over more carefully and worked it out.

Nice puzzle.
Apr 19, 2011

Overall, I liked this one , but I didn't like the 2 U's on their side making an E - it's a little too much of a stretch. Still good, though.
Apr 19, 2011

Easy, but fun!
Apr 19, 2014

Ho Hum!!
Apr 19, 2014

One of the best of the rhyming riddles and I'm glad to see the repeats of the better contributions to this site .....

In ALL the categories.

Good stuff !!!!!
Apr 19, 2014

I must be hungry - I thought the answer was pizza!
The B's are up early today - Babe and BadBunnee!
Have a wonderful day and rest of the weekend!
Apr 19, 2014

simple; nicely done
Apr 19, 2014

I had the P ZZL so I was on the right track. I had to cheat and look at the answer. Now I feel stoopid. If I had just stood back and looked at the letters it was plain as day.
Apr 19, 2014

Good one. Took awhile, but I got it.
Hey catmom=STOOPID- that was a stupid word.
Apr 19, 2014

It would have required more than the one cup of coffee for me this morning Cute!
Apr 19, 2014

Good but I didn't get it, I might have had the clue been, "a noise in sound sleep as sure as can be heard."
Apr 20, 2017

I definitely didn't get it on my own, but that was a really neat teaser. I looked up the answer, read the first two explanations and then figured out the rest. Awesome teaser!
Apr 20, 2017

Puzzle came to mind as soon as I got P and ZZ
Apr 20, 2017

Enjoyed the teaser; it was fun and easy and did not take long to figure out.
