A Fisherman's Tale

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

When telling a story
About flounder or dory,
I often end up far apart.

But when bowing your head
Or mourning your dead,
I'm together and close to your heart.

You may lend me or hold me
Or show me or fold me,
And all this is merely a start.

What am I?





What Next?

doehead, why would you say that?Are you so intelligent that you, yourself, can determine an age range? If you think some teasers are easy, then keep it to yourself.
It was a well written teaser and the author should get credit for that.

Very cute, I found it easy, but I enjoyed the hint as much as the teaser. Good job, Leftclick.

Easy or not, it still made me think! And I loved the good feeling when I got it! It was perfect brain snack for my Wednesday morning-thanks!

I needed a second reading, but got it without the hint! I thought it was great, very well-written! Enjoyed!

Excellent teaser, but I think the hint kind of gave it away.

Nevertheless: 9/10.

Very good and well written, but I still do not get the connection to the fisherman. Sorry.

I liked this one, sometimes easy is OK.
Babe, when a fisherman tells about the fish he caught his hands are far apart. "It was this big!"

easy, but well thought out

Though I don't fish, many of my friends and family are avid fisehrmen so I got it from the first stanza and the other two just confirmed what I had already figured out.
That being said, though I (and some others) found it easy, reading the comments it would seem just as many found it challenging.
Yet, regardless of their opinion of the teaser's difficulty, nobody said they didn't like it. That is the mark of a good teaser - mass appeal across a wide variety of people.

Note to mepapa. (your comment) in re "take it to the forums" was NOT ignored by me.

I wrote the following the very next day:
____________________________

And the suggestions that we (:lol take all this over to one of the Forums won't work either. We (:lol tried that and nobody of consequence (editors, Jake, etc.) paid any attention.
____________________________

I challenge ANYONE here to show us ONE change in Braingle that was initiated by ANYTHING that was discussed in the Forums.

The Forums are just an exercise in MMM (you don't want to know what that stands for).

And where more appropriately to make a point about comments than with a comment to comments made in the comment section of Braingle commentary .....

hmmmmmmmmmm ???

Us lol:
