# It's not you but me who can solve this riddle!

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!

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

• Very answer. Many clever. So like. – Will Jan 12 '16 at 19:01

• @question_asker maybe Will meant "Very clever answer. Like so many" – manshu Jan 12 '16 at 19:15
• @manshu I like you, manshu – question_asker Jan 12 '16 at 19:16

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.

• Nice catch on using zero! However a joke isn't necessary for the answer, it's something else! – 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

• it's not the correct answer but it does gives me a giggle =P – Alex Jan 11 '16 at 23:21

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 ;)

• If this isn't the right answer I will be extremely surprised – question_asker Jan 12 '16 at 17:37
• Isn't semicolon more like "half-colon" by definition? – orion Jan 12 '16 at 18:08
• good try but this is not the answer – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 18:08
• @question_asker you should be extremely surprised by now..:D ;) – manshu Jan 12 '16 at 18:21
• @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 – 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!

• Not the right answer but upvote for imaginations! 8) – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 18:03

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.

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

• Not the answer but good attempt! – Alex Jan 12 '16 at 18:05
