# Holy as the elements

Everybody should be able to solve this one!

You might try to pet me or kick my butt
but you can not touch me no matter what

If you gave me presents I'd leave you for sure
but take what's around me and I will endure

You can search the whole ocean or even beyond
in sometimes for sure, a loch or a pond

If you see what's behind it
you are very close
And as you assumed

are not available for this is a really easy one!

Since it is an easy one I want every single line ripped apart!

Are you:

A HOLE

?

You might try to pet me or kick my butt but you can not touch me no matter what

You can caress the abyss or kick it but you will never make contact. "No matter" may be a clue here. There are some more graphic and direct applications of petting and kicking with regards to a HOLE, but never mind.

If you gave me presents I'd leave you for sure

If one fills a hole it is no longer a hole

but take what's around me and I will endure

You can make a hole bigger and it is still a hole

You can search the whole ocean or even beyond in sometimes for sure, a loch or a pond

Very clever. "Whole"=HOLE. "Loch" = HOLE (in German). Also note the presence of "O" in all the key words.

If you see whats behind it you are very close

If you can see the bottom of the hole, you must be close to it (or even in it).

And as you assumed its right under your nose

Your mouth is a HOLE of sorts :O

• Sounds like it could fit! Was having a bit of a hard time seeing how it fits in with If you see whats behind it but guess the 'nothing' here could be the space before the word 'it'. Nov 13, 2014 at 16:59
• I will be picky on this one. Let the cops deal with the water. Nov 13, 2014 at 17:05
• @DavieBrown Only an hour :O Well, you got away easy if it's right Nov 13, 2014 at 17:05
• @avigrail So, it's right but you want a better explanation for the water clue? if so, I will stay up all night if I have to :p Nov 13, 2014 at 17:06
• @avigrail All right, let me consider this problem further. Your puzzles sind ausgezeichnet :D Nov 13, 2014 at 17:12

Bacteria
you cant touch them
present as in medicine
it feeds of whats around it such as a host
they survive underwater
you look through them so youd be close looking anywhere
they are in and around your nose.

• That's a nice solution, however, not the correct one here. Nov 13, 2014 at 16:05

Well, it's definetely an interesting riddle. My try will be:

space (maybe empty space)

or

air

• I like this one a lot. Space makes more sense than air, though, with the water part. Nov 13, 2014 at 14:51
• I can't comment your solution for mysterious reasons. But I will get back to you as soon as the riddle will be solved! Nov 13, 2014 at 16:10
• I encourage you to try again for there are some new opinions on the market that will support you. Nov 13, 2014 at 17:18

I'm stumped with a few of these lines, they're always excluding some ideas I have.

But my best shot is a "riddle".

You might try to pet me or kick my butt

Implies liking it, and / or trying to solve it

but you can not touch me no matter what

A concept

If you gave me presents I'd leave you for sure

but take what's around me and I will endure

You can search the whole ocean or even beyond in sometimes for sure, a loch or a pond

Not sure how this could fit though.

If you see whats behind it you are very close

Seeing the tricks / word plays for what they are

And as you assumed its right under your nose

I have a riddle in front of me

• "but take what's around me and I will endure" - maybe removing letters from the sides leaves 'i'... riddle Nov 13, 2014 at 16:34
• Wow! That's what I'd call a very good attempt (although it's wrong). Nov 13, 2014 at 16:34

Kim Kardashian

You might try to pet me or kick my butt but you can not touch me no matter what

She's pretty much unavailable

If you gave me presents I'd leave you for sure but take what's around me and I will endure

She's not into nice guys

You can search the whole ocean or even beyond in sometimes for sure, a loch or a pond

She looks good in a bikini (near bodies of water)

If you see whats behind it

Giggity

you are very close And as you assumed its right under your nose

She shows up everywhere; the media love her for some reason
