I think the answer is water. Snow and ice are a form of water, it makes you cry because tears are water, you drink water and it makes you pee, girls put water in thier hair to help comb it, make celebrities looks stupid (remember Tom Cruise being squirted by water?) champagne bubbles are caused by carbonated water, the whole "pop" section makes no sense though.

Update: you'll find the answer here

Like a previous post stated, this riddle came from a poem. someone somewhere made a riddle from a poem..... though their "pop" analogies could have been better...
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
The answer is the sun.

"I turn polar bears white"
Polar bears have clear hair shafts, so when light from the sun's rays reflect off them, they appear white.

"and I will make you cry."
When you look at the sun, your eyes water, making it seem like you're crying.

"I make guys have to pee"
The sun coming up in the morning wakes you up if you've been sleeping, and most of you know that soon after you wake up, you have to pee.

"and girls comb their hair."
The sun brings light, which brings visibility to our world. Girls, once it is light, worry about being seen. They comb their hair to look better in the light from the sun.

"I make celebrities look stupid"
Everyone who's read People Magazine knows that celebrities can look stupid. The sun is the provider of light for the stupid pictures that have been taken.

"and normal people look like celebrities."
Just like the sun sees/makes celebrities look stupid, it can make normal people look like celebrities. Both are possible with the right lighting.

"I turn pancakes brown"
The brown on pancakes is just reflected light, which comes from the sun.

"and make your champane bubble."
The sun's light catches the champagne bubbles, causing them to sparkle. Without light, they wouldn't be visible.

"If you squeeze me, I'll pop."
This line probably originated from the previous line's image of champagne bubbles "popping." But if we were to squeeze the sun, which is a ball of gas, we can imagine that it would pop.

"If you look at me, you'll pop."
Again, the word "pop." The repetition is obvious. "Pop" in this situation means to destroy. Did your mother ever tell you not to look at the sun? Mine did. She told me that it would destroy my vision, making me go blind.
AnonymousUmmm...

Did any of you guys look at the first page? I mean, this riddle was written off a nice little poem that was actually posted on the very first page of this forum, which answered it.

Time does turn polar bears brown, they are yellow in the summer and with the coming of winter they turn white. That's time bud.

Time does turn pancakes brown. Without time and heat all you have is flower and water, time is essential.

Time does make girls comb their hair. As they grow up Emotion: time they start to want to look pretty (for various reasons), so they comb their hair.

Time makes guys pee, because the longer Emotion: time they hold it the more they have to go.

It's funny how prejudices we gain as we grow older inhibit our ability to think critically. It's also funny how people don't pay attention to anything, the answer is very clear on the very first page.

As for the "God" answer, this riddle isn't about what is possible if a deity wills it to be so, it is about what IS and what IS TRUE at all times, so long as you look at it from a certain point of view. The god answer requires an act of God himself to be true, while the time answer is always true. Besides, if you were to squeeze God, you would more than likely be the one dieing, not God.

At least "I don't know" was farely clever, "God" doesn't fit 3/4 of it, and is a wussy, unthinking way out.

BTW, I almostgot the answer right, given another 10 minutes before I saw the poem and I'd probably have had it. Emotion: stick out tongue
you've got it!
the answer IS air; let me clarify.
the polar bears thing: yellow in the summer, white in the winter or whatever u said.
Make you cry: mid-life crisis? depression? tragedies/deaths?
Have to pee: After you hold a pee, yes, you will.
Girls comb their hair: older girls will comg their hair.
Celebrities look stupid: when they get old, they look stupid.
Normal people look like celebrities: when little children grow up, yes
Pancakes brown: that happens OVER TIME.
champaigne bubble: champaigne from like, the 60's and stuff is always bubbly.
squeeze me, i'll pop: if you "squeeze" time (euphemism for wasting time), you'll run out of time (i.e. time will pop)
look at me, you'll pop: this makes the most sense. when you are pressed for time while doing something, you will constantly look at the clock, and as time runs out, you (pop).
the only way i could see a kid saying this (if that part's true) is if, like in the hobbit, they say something to the extent of, "Give me more time!"
and for those of you who said God, that can fit pretty much any riddle.
where is this poem from that the riddle is from?
i can't find it anywhere
who's the author?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I'm totally worned out by this riddle..can someone give the answer,the true one???..please!! Emotion: indifferent
Well the anwser cant be no because if u anwsered it no then u did anwser it so it wouldnt be no cause if you did anser it then u can anwser it so sayin you cant wouldnt be the anwser follow? i thought it was time to but can a kindergardener anwser that .. i say they would prolly say god ... it must be love .. j/k my bf it trying to get me to stop thinking abotu this so he told me it was love or mom cause thats what kindergardeners say hehe i also thought preasure but the kindergarden thing and i also thought time but would they get that .. ct hats what throws u off but i like the chuck norris anwser hehe that rocks
This poem makes total sense. Time has got to be the answer to the riddle.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
actually the answer is pressure!

this riddle is old:polar bears are white because the pressure at the poles is low, so they have to be able to absorb heat.
pressure makes you cry if it's too much.
pressure in your bladder makes you have to pee.
peer pressure makes girls comb their hair.. otherwise we wouldn't bother!
celebrities usually crack under pressure.
many normal people will shine under pressure.
pancakes turn brown thanks to pressure generated by the heat.
champagne will bubble until the pressure of the carbonation has disappeared.
if you squeeze something under pressure, BAM, there it goes.
if you are "looking" at pressure, you're in it, like in an airplane, and your ears pop.
