Six letters have I, and many more;
One word tells what the others are for;
Conceal a thing is what I do;
So what am I? Need a clue?


Hint

Words together make this rhyme;
Now while you ponder for a time,
Your brain is on a merry chase,
And I'm staring you right in the face!

I was convinced that the answer was MIRROR (stares you in the face, in the hint section.) But even tho it didn't make any sense, my dumb mind wouldn't accept any other words. Good one.

Really great! I'm glad u gave the six letters clue bcoz w/o that I don't know if I'd have gotten it, but I did!!!!! The only tiny little thing I thought of was "...to conceal..." because a riddle has to both conceal AND reveal, but also I used that clue to solve it, so.... All in all, great, and the hint was great too!

To screen something, can mean to conceal. A screen holds lots of letters. ?? Works as well as riddle.

Nov 28, 2006

schmedley's or whoevers comment was completely uncalled for and rude. i thought this was a great site where people posted their teasers, all of which they work very hard on. however, in the last few months there has been extreme rudeness and many put downs. i wonder how that makes the creater feel? i would feel awful. that comment was a complete waste of space. if you want to express your opinion, do so. but with CONSTRUCTIVE critisism. instead of making the person feel bad and stupid. geeze, have a little respect. and, btw, i liked it.

WHO'S SCHMEDLEY?

GET USED TO IT, EVERYONE IS NOT GOING TO LIKE YOU OR YOUR WORK/EFFORTS.

THAT'S LIFE, AND SOMETIMES IT'S TOUGH

PEOPLE CALL THEM THE WAY THEY SEE THEM.

WHY DELETE A PERSON'S COMMENT IF IT'S RUDE?

OTHERS MAY BENEFIT FROM IT AND I FOR ONE WOULD LIKE TO SEE FOR MYSELF WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY, NOT HAVE OTHERS DECIDE WHAT IS GOOD OR BAD.

THERE ARE RUDE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. GET USED TO IT!

Nov 28, 2006

This was a really great teaser. I loved it. It made me laugh. There are more positive comments on here than there are negative ones. For once I agree with Imurray. There are alot of rude people in life. I have learned alot in my life due to the negative experiences that i have been through. It has made me into the person I am today and I dont regret them.

Regarding rude, vulgar or obscene comments:
Constructive criticism is helpful and usually appreciated. Comments that are flat out rude, obscene or vulgar are not only not appreciated, but not helpful. There is no purpose other than to hurt.
Also, rude comments are voted on by members of the site that have earned a certain level of points and are not deleted unless a majority agree that it is offensive. I don't vote to scratch annoying comments-- only those that are truly offensive.
vlermaAus*
Nov 30, 2006

IM just when I was going to give you Kudos you go and put your foot back in it. So sad for those who work so hard to make these teasers and for those who take their time to edit them and make sure there are no duplicates. Now this teaser was really quite good. Please if you don't like the teaser and you have constructive criticism speak up - otherwise if you are just going to be a smart mouth, shut up! There are too many of us who enjoy this part of Briangle to have Grinches steal it from us.

Hi, I'm here to leave a comment about the TEASER, not the commenters *cough* .. although I can't help but notice that whatever the rude comment was, it must've been voted to be removed. How nice!

Anglyways -- cute riddle. I got it before looking at the hint though I wasn't entirely certain. I'm starting to actually like riddles now! EXCEPT--

I'm not much of a fan of rhyme,
it seems to obscure things most of the--
occasions.

Those who make rude comments are poor insecure souls; and rather than play into their hands by acknowledging their lack of good manners, they should simply be ignored.

WOW! Imurray actually LIKED a teaser! but, unfortunately, that was his first comment from awhile ago. his newer one is just like his other ones. great teaser, tho! (man, Imurray's on his comment made me gasp!)
hubbamutt777tus*
Nov 30, 2009

yup, vlerma, i was VERY proud of Imurray too, but he had to go and forget that he already posted a nice comment. i wonder what was going on in that plotter's mind. (no offense to Imurray, or anything)
HABS2933Aca*
Nov 28, 2012

Though I know he is not out here anymore and will never see this comment,it applies to everyone who is still here. I agree in part with what imurray is saying,, people are entitled to their opinion, even if it's unpopular or negative. And there are rude people everywhere and they must be dealt with on a regular basis. Of course that does not make being rude right, I also agree that there is a more appropriate (and kinder) way to criticize someone or something.
On this particular riddle, I didn't care much for it.
cutebugAus*
Nov 28, 2012

What a great teaser,I missed it. More comments were about other people than the teaser. I think a person that complains about somebody elses rudeness is really the rude person!!!!!

Good teaser! I thought I had it so I didn't look at the hint...I guessed "secret." 6 letters, it conceals things... Could work!

Maybe this was supposed to be haiku instead of a riddle. Let me have a go at one:

Butterfly hiccup
Oatmeal dancer Marrakesh
Alabaster

Hint: Think eponym

Answer: Geoffrey

I also didn't make any sense out of the "and many more" part.
