I Turn Polar Bears White

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 champagne bubble.
If you squeeze me, I’ll pop.
If you look at me, you’ll pop.
Can you guess the riddle?

The answer to this admittedly lame riddle is, “No.” The reason is that the question at the very end asks if you can guess the riddle and there is nothing that satisfies the requirements above. Some say that pressure is the answer, but they can’t explain how it turns polar bears white or pancakes brown. Nothing turns polar bears white, any more than something turns a white person white, and heat makes pancakes brown, not pressure.

Actually, polar bear hair is clear, it is translucent. Their skin is black, and as a sort of ‘nature’s fiber optic’ light travels down the hair to their black skin and warms them. So due to layers refraction of light really makes them look white. Nearly all these have an energy transference / exchange or matter shift … Id actually say EXPOSURE. Exposure to the sun, Exposure to the elements. A lot of exposure can make a popular person look bad and a normal person a rock star. Exposure to the elements or cold, weather. etc.I originally thought entropy but that doesnt meet all qualifications. The ‘You will pop’ thing is still not right.

Actually, the answer is the riddle itself because the question asks what the riddle is, not what turns polar bears white, etc.
Soooo yeah. Both of you guys are wrong.

I would assume this is pressure.
Because turning polar bear’s hair white could be symbolic of pressure giving grey hairs.
Pressure makes people cry.
Guys gotta pee when they’re bladders are under pressure.
Girls brush their hair cuz of societal pressure to look good.
Celebrities do stupid things under pressure.
Normal people can become heroes after completing something great under pressure (or somethin’ like dat)
Heat is a form of energy… so I suppose that’s considered pressure to make pancakes brown. Or if you have those machines which press pancakes, those can turn em brown using pressure.
The released pressure for chapaign allows for bubbles,
Putting in pressure causes things to pop,
If you look at pressure, you may pop? You feel pressure and feel like popping or it literally pops u under pressure.

That was what I thought when I first read.

I think the answer is Jesus. Every answer is Jesus so you can’t say I’m wrong.

Easy the answer is ‘No’, why? the only thingy that you need to read is ‘can you guess this riddle?’ so you say no.

@Mia lala

What? It never asked why, maybe you should re-read. x’D

Clint says

I think the answer is pressure

TAMIA says
November 7, 2016 @ 09:48

its no because it asks you “can you answer this riddle” so you say “no” because it confuses you so you’re unable to answer it

Aaron says
November 20, 2016 @ 16:51

The answer is actually no because it says “can you answer the riddle” no you cant

John Paul says
February 28, 2017 @ 13:48

No why can you answer the riddle (last line)

ponzu says
October 25, 2017 @ 02:00

The answer is “no”, but not because of what you guys wrote. The answer is “no”, because a riddle, any riddle, cannot be “guessed”. A riddle can be solved. An answer can be guessed. If the question at the end was “Can you answer/solve the riddle?” or “Can you guess the answer?”, then… well, then it would have been a bit harder, because maybe it’s pressure, and maybe it’s light, and maybe it’s atoms, and maybe it’s Jesus, and maybe it’s all nonsense and there is no answer. But as it is, the answer is “no”, because riddles are not guessed.

Ponzu I hadn’t thought of that! That is really smart! Me being a little kid, I would have guessed life.

the answer is no bc u can’t answer the riddle

miike says
December 10, 2018 @ 22:03

The answer is yes.

If your answer is no, that means you answered the riddle with the word no. So in turn, you answered the riddle even though you said you couldn’t answer the riddle.

The answer is Something! Answer: Something

Chris says
August 13, 2020 @ 18:43

Aside from the ‘something’ answer (which is good), I think the answer is “Mom”.

Mom’s turn polar bears white because the polar bear develops in the womb
Mom’s will make you cry., especially when they die
Moms make guys have to pee by feeding/caring for them
Moms make girls comb their hair.
Moms make celebrities look stupid (either the Celeb’s mom showing embarrassing photos or Moms going off on Celebs to protect their children)
Moms make normal people look like celebrities, like cheering for them loudly and clapping at little events
Moms turn pancakes brown from cooking..
Moms make your champagne bubble by opening the bottle to celebrate you
If you squeeze me, I’ll pop. Because mom’s love hugs from their kids, makes them pop on the inside in joy.
If you look at me, you’ll pop. Babies/Kids/some adults look at their moms with emotion/adoration, especially in passing.

What do you think internet, did I solve it? Moms for the win.
Can you guess the riddle?

-flash on a camera makes clear polar bear fur look white
-ppl cry when looking at old photos and kids cry when taking them
-girls comb there hair before taking a picture and guys always have to pee before(might be a stretch)
-if taken in poor lighting a photo can make a pancake look brown
-if you squeeze the camera the flash will pop
-if you look at the flash youll jump or “pop”
Im reaching but i say its photography/light related lol

Shy says

Jobama says

who else is here because of a guy on tik tok??

Dayne Ernestberg says
August 16, 2020 @ 23:23

Actually I think the answer is Yes, because technically the question asks if you Could answer it. It doesn’t imply that you have to be correct.

tia stewart says
August 17, 2020 @ 04:02

I actually thought camera/filters maybe? Photography.

Gabe Silk says

My answer is air/wind (I know the real answer is “no”, which is kind of stupid, but if there was a real answer, this is one of my ideas):

The air and general cold in the Arctic causes polar bears to develop coats of hair to stay warm, and those hairs are white.
Wind in your eyes makes you tear up (which could also make you “pop”)
Wind will tangle up girls’ hair, causing them to need to comb it.
Wind in celebrities’ hair can make them look weird sometimes, and wind in normal people’s hair can make them look like celebrities at the right times.
If the air is too hot around a pancake, it will warm up and eventually turn brown.
The certain air properties found in champagne when a bottle is opened is what cause it to bubble.
And the main reason why I think this works – if air is squeezed into a tight space (like in bubble wrap), it pops.

The answer is ‘you’ because the person saying the riddle can (apparently) do all these things.

The answer is ligma

enigma says
September 9, 2020 @ 16:31

The correct answer is : shot

1) I turn polar bears white : black skin interspersed with white fur
2) and I will make you cry : a critical or hostile remark can make someone cry
3) I make guys have to pee: many shots of liquor make a guy piss more
4) girls comb their hair: the only time a girl combs her hair is when she’s streaking it
5 & 6) I make celebrities look stupid and normal people look like celebrities: a bad shot or photo can make celebrities look ordinary and a good shot can make ordinary people look extraordinary
7) I make pancakes brown: over time certain areas of the pancake become darker than others which are lighter or mottled – shot
8) and make your champagne bubble: when opened bubbles shoot (past tense) out.
9) If you squeeze me, I’ll pop: when you squeeze off a shot it makes a popping sound
10) If you look at me, you’ll pop: if you stand in the direction of a shot fired from a gun, you’ll probably die (pop off)

Pressure of the harsh environment turns polar bear white and the heat pressures on a pankake turning it brown idk

kk says
January 26, 2021 @ 23:07

the answer is no

Hi everyone says
February 1, 2022 @ 23:59

The first thing that came to mind was water but that doesn’t make sense and came up with other answers. Then I came up with pressure! Pressure pretty much makes sense for this riddle so that’s my answer.

Guys…. GUYS
This is sooooo easy
The answer is Bee
And that’s why
The riddle is” I turn polar bears white, and i will make you cry, make guys have to pee, and girls comb their hair, make celebrities look stupid, and normal people look like celebrities, I turn pancakes brown, and make your champagne bubble, if you squeeze me I will pop, if you look at me you will pop

That means: I turn polar bears white= without bees, the world would become much hotter, so the ice would melt, and then, polar bears would evolve and stop being white, without ice and snow, why would they be white?
and i will make you cry, make guys have to pee, and girls comb their hair= bees are scary and people would be afraid and cry, or, bees would sting you, and you will cry
Guys, would be afraid and then pee, and girls would´nt pee because guys pee easier than girls
Girls, would comb their hair because like this, would be harder for bees to get stuck on their hair, that is usually long
make celebrities look stupid, and normal people look like celebrities= celebrities usually dont go to the nature, so they would scream and runaway fron the bees like kids
And normal people, wouldn’t be more scared than celebrities, so they would look like celebrities
I turn pancakes brown, and make your champagne bubble= pancakes are made of milk and eggs, without bees there wouldn’t be cows or chickens, so there wouldn’t be pancakes to turn brown with the heat
And champagne is made of a microorganism, and this microorganism make champagne bubble, and without bees, this microorganism wouldn’t exist anymore
if you squeeze me I will pop, if you look at me you will pop= if you squeeze a bee it will pop and die
If you look to a bee it would sting you, and make a bubble, that eventually will pop

And that’s why
Your welcome

Lol the answer is soo simple, TIME. Think about it carefully and you’ll understand.

Kosta says
April 27, 2022 @ 19:09

The answer IS NOT A NO OR A YES, SIMPLY BECAUSE THE QUESTION FALLS OUTSIDE THE FKING RIDDLE!!!!!! It’s not pressure either simply because polar bears are white because of the snow, the snow is white because of temperature, you could technically say pressure but it’s definition should be quite large! Time for sure is not the solution simply because of the polar bears and the fact that pancakes are brown already. The only correct mathematical solutions i propose is that the answer is undefined, like 0^0, because there is not such word with it’s single definition that could satisfy all of the options. And once again i refuse to believe that the answer is yes and/or no simply because they fall outside of the specification!

I put myself in my 6 year old state of mind and my answer is, No. There’s too many riddles in this one particular riddle. I play 4-word so it was fairly easy to figure out that there is more than one riddle to consider. At First i thought of lights, Camera, and exposure. Then I realized as a kid a riddle was no more than 2 sentences. There are more than 1 riddle.

Gage says

The answer is 42. It’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything. This falls under the everything clause.

How exactly does one, “squeeze time”?

Tianna says

I think the answer is “no” it doesn’t make sense so it is “no”

Paul says
August 19, 2022 @ 23:59

The answer can also be yes. The question is can you guess, yes I can guess, what I guess wil not be the correct answer. But that is not the question.

llama says

ummmm i think the answer is no because the question is not who am i its can u answer this riddle and only 97% cant answer this so the answer is no

Shubham says
November 14, 2022 @ 20:42

The answer is sun
It’s matching with every answer
Eyes pop if you look at sun
Champagne bubbles with exposure to sun which gives heat.
Polar bear hairs white because of light given by sun
If science tryna squeeze the sun it will pop meaning super nova
Celebrities look bad because of sunlight sometimes
And normal people look good because of sunlight sometimes
Looking at sun makes you cry
Sometimes in open sunlight

can i guess the riddle….the riddle is….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 champagne bubble. if you squeeze me I’ll pop, but if you look at me, I’ll pop…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………it asks you to guess the riddle, not solve the riddle

I understand why the website says “no” and why some of you guys say “time” if you think about it, there both right. The riddle states “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 champagne bubble.If you squeeze me, I’ll pop.If you look at me, you’ll pop.Can you guess the riddle?” the website says no bc it asks you can you guess the riddle? Another good answer is time bc When polar bears are born, they are yellow and they turn white over time,time and time again, we humans cry, in time, girls have to comb their hair….., in time, celebrities do something stupid, in time, a child can grow up handsome just like a celebrity, in time, pancakes turn brown with heat , in time, champagne bubbles in its process of being made
if you squeeze,crush a clock it will “pop” or break, if you stare at a clock, it goes so slow, so you will ‘pop’.
