What am I?

I will help you with your writing,
Probably through me you will see,
But if you want to ship me,
You'll put me right inside of me.

I wear many different hats you know,
In construction plus I'm tracing,
I also do work for the board,
Lots of kids use me for a racing.

You can fold me, tear me,
Rip me without using all your might,
But be careful how you touch me,
I may give you my famous bite.

Probably through me you will see- Usually you can see through paper

But if you want to ship me,

You can fold me, tear me,

But be careful how you touch me,

You didn't need so long an explanation of the answer. I think people could figure it out for themselves.
Apr 18, 2005

-pokes Yoda-
I know I sure needed it, so please don't be rude!
Apr 18, 2005

Er.... Thanks for the praise...
Apr 18, 2005

i didnt really get it until i read the famous bite part but it was good
Apr 18, 2005

This is to McComb718@* I thought it was very good, I for one didn`t get it right off, be cool, please.
Apr 18, 2005

I'm with mccombs ick!!!!!!!!!!

paper airplane races???
Apr 19, 2005

Easy- the end gives it away.

Apr 19, 2005

You are all so rude! (except for CelestWolfsbane) DID, I liked it! I didn't get is at all! Great teaser!!!
Apr 19, 2005

I liked it! Definently looked at paper, but then i thought that was wrong. I guess I was right though! Good Job! I liked the riddle and the rhyme, it must have taken a lot of time. That's probably why i am really bad at writing riddles That one was great!
Apr 22, 2005

Pretty good. I guessed paper, but wasn't sure about the "see through me" and "kids use for racing" lines.
Apr 23, 2005

Very nice job. This one has all the elements of a good teaser. Some of the comment makers need to grow up!! They are simply jealous that they cannot think of any clever teasers to create! Keep up the good work!
Apr 24, 2005

this was pretty EZ
a good one for kids
the title and any 2 of the clues give it away
And for the kids, the explanation is just fine
U don't HAVE to read the explanation when U get the puzzle right
nice job
Apr 24, 2005

yes i knew that one
Jun 16, 2005

Nice one DID
Sep 11, 2005

i thought paper, then i thought wood...
should have stuck with my original answer
great teaser
Apr 08, 2006

I too thought wood. I think it can be made to fit the clues, perhaps some better than paper.
Sep 19, 2007

Nice teaser! Liked the poem!
Feb 28, 2008

Feb 28, 2008

On the easy side, but still fun to read. Thanks for posting.
Feb 28, 2008

Very well written. Thank you!
Feb 28, 2008

Very easy
Feb 28, 2008

Please forgive my typing above. I was trying to see through a piece of paper when I typed it.
Feb 28, 2008

very cute, easy, but cute. Thanks
Feb 28, 2008

People who live on the internet, are not used to paper! Ha Good one!
Feb 28, 2008

I thought it was clever, but I inferred that the "a racing" part of the riddle was a reference to "erasing" which makes a bit more sense to me. But Hey, I married an aeronautical engineer, so all things refer to planes here...
Feb 28, 2008

Did a bunch of you get out of the wrong side of bed today There is no need to be rude!!!
I actually got the paper airplane race thing
I solved it fairly quickly!
Feb 28, 2008

By the way the "famous bite"
part clinched it for me. How many
Paper Cuts have I had, Zillions
Feb 28, 2008

Nice, one!!
Feb 28, 2008

I don't usually get riddles, so I was thrilled to have one that was easy enough for me to get!!
Feb 28, 2008

Feb 28, 2008

i got it!!!!
Feb 28, 2008

i'm sure dumb
i didn't get it
Feb 28, 2008

It was easy enough to figure out, but I still wasn't 100% sure of my answer. I like how you explained all the different points, unlike so many others which leave you wondering.
Feb 28, 2008

Great teaser, a bit too easy for me, but it was very well written, and the explanation is good.
Sometimes one or two lines in a riddle don't make sense to the reader, and an explanation helps the reader undrstand where you're coming from.
I know all those nasty comments by other readers were written ages ago, but incase the general sentiment from the rest of us isn't clear, just ignore them, you've done a great job.
Feb 28, 2008

Great teaser! Fun, but easy. The first thing I thought of was paper, but I thought that answer was too obvious. Hehe, oops.
Anyway, I enjoyed it. Thanks for posting this!
Feb 28, 2008

I got this one right away, good one
Feb 29, 2008

PAPER!!! Liked it!
Mar 01, 2008

great teaser... i had the answer by the end of the first verse, so the rest was just a read through ... and i didnt read the explanations either sorry... kinda in a hurry... excellent job overall though
Mar 28, 2008

Holy crap! I got a daily teaser. I just decided to pop back in, I haven't been here in a couple of months. Thanks guys!
Feb 28, 2011

How do you see through most paper?
Feb 28, 2011

You see through paper by holding it up to the light - very good teaser!
Feb 28, 2011

So you are claiming that translucent equates to seeing through?
Feb 28, 2011

Easy! Loved it!
Feb 28, 2011

Paper cuts definitely gave it away but I don't know how paper has many hats-colors to me don't seem like hats- clothes do Also I cannot see through paper unless you mean sideways, where I see only a line- or unless you mean there is like a light shining on it and there is something on the other side.
Feb 28, 2011

Interesting teaser. I'd appreciate it a bit more, however, if the lines were clearer and more grammatically correct. "Say, Johnny, do you want to have a racing?" Also, of all the things you could've said about paper, you chose the fact that it's sometimes maybe sort of see-through?

Still nice to read, though. It certainly doesn't deserve all the nasty comments.
Mar 01, 2011

Great riddle! Funny, I finally gave up and went to look for the answer. Just before I looked at the answer, I muttered to myself, "I don't know, some kind of paper. LOL
Jun 20, 2013

Great teaser. Loved the part about its "famous bite"
Feb 28, 2014

If stating an opinion is rude, then I am rude because I thought some of the statements were misleading and not like paper at all. The fact the author had to go into great detail in her answer proves my point. Nice try though
Feb 28, 2014

Got it, but wondered if "kids use me for a race" or "kids use me for racing" would be more grammatically correct?
Feb 28, 2014

Good work, I like this one. Very good content. However, I have some issues with the construction. Every stanza is one big run-on sentence. Just that it's a poem doesn't mean that it can flout the rules of the English language. I can't make heads or tails of the middle stanza, structurally. But again, good content, good thinking. Great riddle, just needs work!
Mar 01, 2017

I thought this riddle was very clever and well written!
