I turn polar bears white
and I will make you cry.
I make guys have to pee
and girls comb their hair.
I make celebrities look stupid
and normal people look like celebrities.
I turn pancakes brown
and make your champane bubble.
If you squeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop.
Can you guess the riddle?
No idea what the answer is..help please =/
Update: Besides 'Time', 'God', 'Pressure' and 'Air':
The #1 solution is 'NO' or 'YES' (as anybody can 'guess' the riddle)See more detailed answers below..
The answer to the riddle is "no i cant...."
Thats because the question was 'can you guess the riddle?'
I turn polar bears white (fur is white because they adapt to the altitude. higher atmospheric pressure slower melinin)
and I will make you cry. (peer pressure)
I make guys have to pee (pressure in bladder)
and girls comb their hair. (peer pressure)
I make celebrities look stupid (stress = pressure)
and normal people look like celebrities. (again peer pressure makes u wanna look nice)
I turn pancakes brown (pressure causes heat. heat makes pancakes brown)
and make your champane bubble. (bubbles are the release of air and aire pressure)
If you sqeeze me, I'll pop. (if you somehow squeeze a container of pressurized gas, it explodes)
If you look at me, you'll pop. (could refer to peer pressure. u snap under the pressure, every body staring at you.)
i think its pressure..
alright onion compound guy, do you REALLY think a child is going to guess that?!? sure the statistic may be bogus, but they're giving you a thinking reference. in other words, don't over complicate the situation. some mystery compound is about as complicated as you can get. this goes for all you that think it's pressure too. if you're working on something like this the first thing you should think when you come up with any kind of an answer is would a kid think of this. stop trying to make it more than it is. "no i can't" makes sense. kids don't understand everything, they're aware of it. the statement said it took kids about 6 minutes to figure out the answer. that's probably about enough time for a kid to say duck kitten baseball playground etc. finally settling on "i don't know" or "no i can't" when they're shut down on all their other answers. as we grow and become more and more educated, we tend to think we know all the answers, or at least can figure out all the answers. a "harvard grad", in my opinion, would refuse to be bested by some silly little riddle and, since all the statements leading up to "can you guess the riddle?" have little to do with the actual answer, they would get wrapped up in researching those rather than simply answering "i don't know". the other possiblilty, which is a good one. is some guy made this up, like so much other crap on the internet, to see how riled up he could make people with his answerless riddle. believe it or not, not everything in life has an answer.
Obviously the answer is time, according to this riddle.
I turn polar bears white - Their coats are not always pure white.
and I will make you cry. - When someone gets old and dies. When evbents occur
I make guys have to pee - He can't wait forever.
and girls comb their hair. - They comb it because it gets long over time.
I make celebrities look stupid. - There is always propaganda and rumors as people become well known over time.
and normal people look like celebrities. - Events in their lives can be amazing over time. And when everyone's old they basically look the same.
And with the popping. Time goes by fast, especialyl when you try to hold on to it. If you watch it go by you eventually die (pop).

I make guys have to pee (cold air)
and girls comb their hair. (air)
I make celebrities look stupid (cold air)
and normal people look like celebrities. (air)
I turn pancakes brown (hot air)
and make your champane bubble. (air in the bubbles)
If you squeeze me, I'll pop. (air in like a balloon)
If you look at me, you'll pop. (im not sure about this one maybe your ears pop)
Can you guess the riddle?
This is just my point of view but they say that 97% of Harvard graduates don't get it but 84% of kindergarten kids do under 6 miniutes. So that leads me to believe God. I was just thinking about it today. Because kids think on a simpler level than most Harvard graduates do. From my experiences most kids believe in God, and that God can do anything, so they would pick that answer. But the graduate wouldn't because they would think on much more complex terms, they would not say God because as you get older you realize that religion is a much more controversial and complicated thing so people would be more hesitant to pick that as an answer. Sorry I gave you a long, boring, jumbled explaination for that answer.
i think it could be light....
light or the sun
or god as said, cause heaven is abouve.... and if you lok up... youll see the sun. and ull pop if u look at it?
celeberities im stuck with? and boys pee, girls comb bit...
im thinking celebrities, depends what light you see a celebrity in? like not in a litteral scence of light.
god knows. who made this riddle to give no one the answer.
God is the most probable answer,as Bubblebee said,He can do everything..
Um...so if you squeeze god, he'll pop? Interesting. I don't think that's the answer somehow. And assuming that a child didn't write the riddle, the answer would probably make a little more sense than that.
yeah I've been thinking about it for a while now (since you came into the chat and posted it...) I still don't have a clue.
(btw, I changed the title so others can find it better )
"Can you guess the riddle?"
i read somewhere the answer is "no i cant"
the reason most of the kindergardeners knew the answer is because they DIDNT kno the answer. as for the harvard students, they think to complex and think there's an actual answer to the riddle.
i would have to agree with the answer "no i cant". at the end it asks "can you guess the riddle". it adds up right.
Well, the Bible does say that "With God, all things are possible." So that would mean that there is a possibility that you could pop God if he willed it... But I dont think little kids who answered this would pay that much attention to detail, and I don't think the person who made it would either. The answer 'No' seems to be the best that anyone has come up with so far.
The time has come,
winter is here
and those yellow bears disapear.
The time has past
as man looks back with a sigh
and a tear in his eye.
As time is held
boys cross their legs
but of course the toilet begs
As time marches on
Girls loose their blush
and swap a comb for their brush
As time passes
For those held high
their end is nigh
As time catches up
Everyone is equal
when we get to the final sequal
As time turns
Without it we have flour and water
With it we have breakfast for my daughter
As time revolves
How does one turn water and wine
into something so fine
As time runs out
The more in a minute you try and squeeze
the less you can do with ease.
As time ticks
All the time that has past
man cannot comprehand something so vast.
