Nothing is in it
But something is in it
Nobody is in it
But somebody is in it
If you have it
You and I are in it
What is it?

A pretty good teaser, but it seems a bit too much of a 'tick'.

@mathisnice Trick or Tick?

Really clever.. I like it
Apr 26, 2010

had to reread it to get it. fun wording.
Apr 26, 2010

I liked this one. Well thought out . I had to think a long time but then it just popped in to my tired brain.
Apr 26, 2010

I didn't get it, but I do get it. LOL Very good teaser, Clever. Thanks for posting.
Apr 26, 2010

Very good! Very well written!
Apr 26, 2010

I don't like it. If you're going to go the route of the actual words (and not what the words mean), then the answer could be many more things than a dictionary. For example, the answer could be "this riddle". Blah...
Apr 26, 2010

Way too easy. The answer popped into my head when I read the 2nd line. Cute, but easy.
Apr 26, 2010

I didn't think it was easy. Of course, when you know the answer it seems easy. I really liked it! If I were still teaching school I would try it on my students.

(You could also say "Everything is in it")
Apr 26, 2010

Oohh i get it now!
Apr 26, 2010

I'd heard something similar before or I never would've gotten it! Very well written! Thanks!
Apr 26, 2010

Nice riddle!
Congrats on TOTD!
Apr 26, 2010

Nice one. It's vague enough to be many things if you have a big enough imagination.

I liked this one although I thought it was something quite different. like a conversation before and after it started so I guess it can be applied to more than one thing. Anyway when I saw the answer it made me smile. Thanks!
Apr 26, 2013

Like Bradon, I get it but din't get it. Will have to try this on a few friends.
Apr 26, 2013

I liked this one!! Thanks for posting!
Apr 26, 2013

If you allow self referencing then all those words are also in the poem! eg 'Something' or 'Nothing'.
Apr 26, 2013

I had to give up and read the answer, then go back and read the riddle a second time, then slap the forehead. So simple and my brain wouldn't comprehend at first! Nice teaser!
