This one is slightly harder then the previous two.

I'm not a pool, a tree, a slave, a website, or a shirt.

But all have something that is related to me.

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ I think there are many possible answers (anything other than pool, tree. slave. website and shirt can be the answer. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Like i said, this one is slightly harder ;) In this case i think the hint actually needed to be part of the question so its fine by me @AeJey $\endgroup$ Jan 14, 2016 at 8:42
  • $\begingroup$ Well actually, i dont think this riddle can result in only one answer, although i have a specific answer in mind the answer to this riddle may actually be different then the one i anticipated at first. $\endgroup$ Jan 14, 2016 at 8:50

I think it's



Pool and book have cover
Tree and book have leaves
Slaves and books are bound
Website and book have pages
Shirt and book have sleeves.

    $\begingroup$ Slaves and books are bound, not bounded. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ have please, not has $\endgroup$ Jan 15, 2016 at 9:31

maybe you are

a dog
- a tree has a bark
a slave has a master
a shirt has a collar
a pool can have a guard (ie guarddog)
... though i'm struggling with website...

  • $\begingroup$ Nice try but not the right answer unfortunatly $\endgroup$ Jan 14, 2016 at 8:47

maybe you are

website has links
tree has wood
slave has irons
shirt could be a tee-shirt
pool has water

  • $\begingroup$ Another good try although the reasoning on the pool is pretty far fetched ;) $\endgroup$ Jan 14, 2016 at 9:01

    $\begingroup$ thanks @Macro Geertsma - maybe the pool had a leak? - a hole-in-one! ;-) $\endgroup$
