I am half of who I am,
yet I am twice of who I am.
Show me, the answer of this riddle,
and I will give you a little giggle.

What am I?

The answer will explain all 4 lines!

Hint 1: I've added a comma to the 3rd sentence

Hint 2: Someone got 'half' of the answer here already!

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Am I right in thinking that the punctuation in the 3rd line has useful meaning? $\endgroup$ – G-man Jan 12 '16 at 16:12
  • $\begingroup$ All I will say is, it gets you closer to the answer =) $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 16:14

I think it's

meme

I am half of who I am,

"me" is half of "meme" ("I" as a definition, "me", is half of ["who I am" = the answer])

yet I am twice of who I am.

"meme" is twice "me" (["I" = the answer] is twice "who I am" as a definition, "me")

Show me, the answer of this riddle, and I will give you a little giggle.

The answer is "meme" which is usually supposed to be funny and make people laugh.

The answer is

the number zero.

I am half of who I am:

$\frac{0}{2}=0$.

yet I am twice of who I am:

$0 \times 2=0$.

Show me the answer of this riddle, and I will give you a little giggle:

This one is on you, OP. You better make a joke about the number zero or you'll unfairly invalidate this answer.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nice catch on using zero! However a joke isn't necessary for the answer, it's something else! $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 15:36

It is:

Butt?

I am half of who I am,

A butt can be made of two butt cheeks

yet I am twice of who I am.

Same as above

Show me the answer of this riddle,

Butts are usually hidden behind clothing so you can't really see it

and I will give you a little giggle.

Seeing or saying "Butt" can cause lots of people to laugh

I think the answer is

Semi-colon (sign is ;)

I am half of who I am,

Half of 'fullstop'

yet I am twice of who I am.

Twice of comma,

Show me, the answer of this riddle, and I will give you a little giggle.

It is used in the wink emoticon as ;)

    $\begingroup$ If this isn't the right answer I will be extremely surprised $\endgroup$ – question_asker Jan 12 '16 at 17:37
  • $\begingroup$ Isn't semicolon more like "half-colon" by definition? $\endgroup$ – orion Jan 12 '16 at 18:08
  • $\begingroup$ good try but this is not the answer $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 18:08

    $\begingroup$ @question_asker you should be extremely surprised by now..:D ;) $\endgroup$ – manshu Jan 12 '16 at 18:21
  • $\begingroup$ @orion i learned in my school that semicolon halts the sentence more than comma but less than a full-stop. But I am not sure why is it called semi-colon, you may find something useful here $\endgroup$ – manshu Jan 12 '16 at 18:27

Is it:

Infinity?

I am half of who I am,

Infinity divided by two is still infinity and infinity can be cut into two equal pieces.

yet I am twice of who I am.

Infinity times two is still infinity

Show me the answer of this riddle,

Infinity is kinda hard to comprehend. It is more of a concept rather than a number but everyone probably disagrees with that.

and I will give you a little giggle.

To write infinity in its opother form, you have to draw a sideways 8, or sometimes a BUTT!

The answer is

the word "me"

I am half of who I am:

"I am" has 4 characters (including whitespace). "me" is 2.

yet I am twice of who I am:

Twice of "I"(1character). "me"(2characters). "I" and "me" have synonymous meanings.

Show me, the answer of this riddle,

You're saying "me" is "the answer of this riddle"

and I will give you a little giggle:

The answer is so obvious it's in the title and in the third line, it could be considered a little funny it took so long to figure it out.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Not the right answer but very close! $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 18:06
  • $\begingroup$ @Alex, is it I, which is still an I when its length/width is halved and doubled? $\endgroup$ – user1717828 Jan 12 '16 at 18:27
  • $\begingroup$ @user1717828 nope, but this answer is the closest so far $\endgroup$ – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 18:32
  • $\begingroup$ Nice puzzle but I find this answer even better and original than the actually correct answer =P $\endgroup$ – Andre Jan 13 '16 at 16:08

Brain

I am half of who I am, yet I am twice of who I am.

As per the title hint, brain is the thing that solves the riddle. Brain has two hemispheres, so it's two halves.

Show me, the answer of this riddle, and I will give you a little giggle.

The brain is the thing that will see the irony in the answer and it controls your actions, so you will giggle.
