Sorry for the last riddle

But this time I'll try not to fiddle

The important lines will begin now

This time it'll be better I vow

The prefix is where mad white workers work

With strange liquids that will make you berserk

The suffix sounds like how you walk through a wall

Drop one of 4 letters and you will have appall

The infix is best known as letter 4 times 2

Cause of a male stereotype I wish I never knew

How am I talking though? Don't bark up a storm as to why...

All you need to worry about is... what am I?

  • $\begingroup$ That first one, I forgot to give a slight hint at the end, many of these type of riddles do that $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 17 '18 at 3:50
  • $\begingroup$ Adding to what @Duck wrote above, is the prefix Rot13(yno)? $\endgroup$ – Feeds Aug 17 '18 at 3:51

I want to say

labrador

because

The first clue -> 'lab'.

and

you walk through walls using doors. 'dor' sounds like 'door' and is 'door' with a letter dropped.

and

not too sure about the infix--maybe the male name 'brad' is stereotyped with aggressiveness? (no offense to any brads out there), and letter 4 x 2 or d2 is associated with dopamine which is associated with aggressiveness.

but most of all

dogs can bark up a storm!

  • $\begingroup$ Was the last part too obvious? For the infix, think about 2 Ds $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 17 '18 at 5:55
  • $\begingroup$ The part about barking? I mostly came up with the word using the prefix and suffix hint, and then saw it was supported by the barking clue. $\endgroup$ – 1848 Aug 17 '18 at 6:03
  • $\begingroup$ Not sure about the infix--maybe Philipp is onto something in the comments under the question? $\endgroup$ – 1848 Aug 17 '18 at 6:06
  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, I can't read the cryptography that you guys do, you'll have to translate it. Sorry $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 17 '18 at 6:21
  • $\begingroup$ @XavierStanton to decrypt the messages, copy and paste the ciphertext into this website, rot13.com. Hope this helps! $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 17 '18 at 12:34
