# Riddle for a fine Thursday Morning

You'll see me when there's an illegal action,
you'll hear me when the parents request.
I'm an answer when you're stressed.

I am not a super hero,
I'm beyond average,
but I'm not the best.

I am....?

• "nor your grandma undressed" Oh my boy.

• "Violence", because the answer to all the questions and the solution for when I'm stressed is "Violence". May 26, 2016 at 15:17
• @Marius Violence does not solve problems at all =\

• @Alex. If violence does not solve your problem you are not using enough. And just for the record...I was trying to be funny. Aparently I failed. May 26, 2016 at 17:47

I think it's

Fine

You'll see me when there's an illegal action,

People can get a fine for an illegal action

you'll hear me when the parents request.

Parent: "Time to do the dishes." Kid: "Fine :(" (Thanks, Davie Brown)

"Fine" is a common answer to "How are you?"

I'm an answer when you're stressed.

People often just say they're fine when they aren't but don't want to talk about it

I am not a super hero, nor your grandma undressed.

Pretty women can be called "fine," but I guess your grandma undressed doesn't qualify...

I'm beyond average, but I'm not the best.

Pretty much the definition of fine

Also

Fine is in the riddle's title

• "You'll hear me when the parents request." I guess "fine" fits with this where it's you agreeing to fulfill your parent's request. Parent: "Time to do the dishes." Kid: "Fine :(" May 26, 2016 at 15:50
• Nicely done! This is the answer

• It's a good riddle, but in my opinion it's a bit unfortunate that all uses of fine except in the first clue are basically the same, namely okay. There are much more meanings of fine, e.g. delicate or not coarse. May 26, 2016 at 17:51
• @MOehm, I think OP wad going for fine with the "grandma undressed" bit. May 26, 2016 at 21:04

Are you

Pizza ?

You'll see me when there's an illegal action,

You eat pizza when you watch an action movie (and they always do a lot of illegal stuff)

you'll hear me when the parents request.

"Hey kid, there is pizza for you in the kitchen, it's dinner time"

What I am going to eat today ? ---> pizza !

I'm an answer when you're stressed.

Keep calm and eat a pizza

I am not a super hero,

There is no pizza man

Pizza has cheese, grandma has not.

I'm beyond average,

obvious

but I'm not the best.

Pizza does not really fit here :/ PIZZA IS THE BEST !

• Ha ha ha....This actually makes sense. Ha ha ha. May 26, 2016 at 15:19
• Pizza has cheese, and what??

Whistle

You'll see me when there's an illegal action,

Someone may blow the whistle on you

you'll hear me when the parents request.

Your parents may whistle for you to come

thinking on this one - the day whistles by?

I'm an answer when you're stressed.

Whistle while you work

I am not a super hero,

I know of no -Superwhistle

some people give a wolf-whistle to a pretty lady but not to your grandma undressed

I'm beyond average,

With bells and whistles

but I'm not the best.

a whistle-stop is a tiny stop on a trip

• interesting thought, +1
