Seven letters are we,
Four different words we make.
Guess us or be ridiculed;
Your reputation's at stake.

The first has pictures,
Paintings and such.
The second causes sneezing,
From ragweed or dust.
The third is an adverb,
It's hard to explain
It's the same as immensely
But it's much more plain.
If you can act like a king,
this word you will sing.

These clues are sparse
This riddle may be tough.
But if you are smart
Then it will be enough.


Answer

Gallery, Allergy, Largely and Regally
A gallery has pictures and paintings
Allergies make you sneeze
Largely is somewhat difficult to describe - it is certainly a synonym for immensely, but not as strong.
Regally means to act royally, or kingly.

Very well written! Good job. I got them all but I thought the three words were going to be a small quote or something

Jul 19, 2005

thats great! i'm gonna add it to my favourites.
nearly got it but as usual looked at the answer before i'd really thought about it. i thought of greatly or largely for the immensely thing, and maybe gallery, but i hadn't really thought it through and now I'm annoyed i didn't get it! but great teaser keep it up!

Good one!

I just looked back at this a year later and realised that you already have "regally". OOps. Sorry.

Jul 20, 2006

Piece of cake! Great teaser!

Had to unscramble the other words to come up with regally, but I got it. Thanks for a perfect teaser.

Great Teaser! Although I was having a Monday morning this morning....I saw the word pain instead of plain and therefore didn't get the third word because I was looking for a word to discribe immense pain...lol Got the rest though and got a good laugh!!!

Very unique, and cleverly written! The royal clue is the one that gave it away for me. My parents have been anagram solvers for years These get the mind working, in the morning. TY

This was a tough one for me - maybe my brain hasn't turned out yet today...
shawneeo*us*
Jul 20, 2006

I got it, yay!!! I got them all, I got them all... na na na na nah nah, ha ha haha ha... !

This was a good 'un! I never would have known that those four words all had the same letters, very interesting, and the riddle and poetry were very well-done also! I thought that the first clue gave it away too easily, for me that was the easiest one. I think one of the harder ones should be first; not that anyone asked, lol!

I saved my reputation i got them all It was fun and it was very stimulating on the ole brain cells They don't do anything on my morningtime and this is great for them keep them coming

QrystalAca**
Jul 20, 2006

Cool! I got 'allergy' first, then went back to tackle 'gallery', pondered the adverb... thought about kingly... wondered if 'legalry' was a word... then got 'regally', and puzzled a bit longer ('greally?') before I finally got 'largely'! Very good riddle, I had so much fun I had to join this place and say so out loud!

Jul 20, 2006

I also thought of allergy right away and from there on it was easy to rearrange the letters for the other three. But it was lots of fun--and I always feel so great after I've solved a teaser.! Thanks for a good time!

Jul 21, 2006

I got this in my email a few days ago, so just getting around to it today. After getting all but REGALLY, I find out I already voted on it. Hmmm...must have found it on the website in someone else's favorites--ya think? Anyway, it was fun--even if I missed one!

One of the funnest most well written riddles ever, in my opinion, I got the first three fairly easily, but for the life of me i couldn't come up with regally.
wordmama*
Jul 20, 2009

Couldn't get off 'museum' at first, but knew that would not create anagrams! When 'hugely' wouldn't work for adverb of immense, I went straight to 'largely', which gave me gallery, allergy, and regally in quick order. Thanks for the great fun!!

Jul 20, 2009

Got the first three but the last one stumped me. Great teaser!

All I got was gallery.

I didn't remember doing this teaser before. I got allergy right away and then thought of answers to 1 and 2, but could not get number 4. Now as I read the comments I see I did this a year ago and got them all! Is this what happens as we grow older?

But I enjoyed this teaser a lot both times.

I got gallery and allergy but didn;t understand it until after I looked at the comments.

Jul 20, 2009

wow REALLY good teaser!!! i tend to just quickly look at the answer before solving the riddle, and i did that this time!!! after i saw the answer, though. i realized how everything fit in! very clever teaser, thanks!!
auntiesisAus*
Jul 20, 2009

Very nice, very clever, and easy. I thought of museum for a second, but realized it was wrong, and the only other word I could think of was gallery. The rest were easy after that. Thanks for a good one.

Reasonably easy but good fun. Suggest you try to make the rhythm of your lines a little more regular - in the introductory lines, anyway. Thanks!

dalfamest! It is a riddle, not a poetry contest. She did good! Nice one!

Once I saw the answers, I was upset at myself for being so stupid. For some reason, I misread the first part and thought the answers had to be 4 letter words. I'd like to think that, had I read the first part correctly, I would have gotten it. Still, the riddle was well written!
cutebugAus*
Jul 20, 2012

I notice that all the teasers are repeats,and very few people respond w/answers. I think that the editors should put out some new material,therefore retaining people,instead of chasing them away.
bestgirl*
Jul 20, 2012

Given the number of oldies, I have begun to wonder if not enough people are creating new material.
iggy39Aus*
Jul 20, 2012

I liked it but I can't remember what an anagram is, I always forget it. I had to read twice to see if they meant 4 letters or seven. I did get allergy which got me the answers. Good quiz
mejajones
Jul 20, 2012

That was fun -- got it with allergy, and the rest were easy. The adverb clue helped a lot.
