# I Almost am a Chicken

I almost am a chicken,
Not quite a famous horse.
Confined to my domain,
I'll help you see the course.

I almost am contagious,
Not quite a Youtube part.
Use a pencil when you're ready
And light me when you fart.

Each line is a clue.
Together they target what specific object?

Hint #1:

The object is not a phone.

Hint #2:

How many lines are in the riddle? There are not quite the past tense of "to eat."

Hint #3:

Each line is a clue except the one that says, "Each line is a clue."

Hint #4:

Each line is almost a phone, but not almost a rhyme.

• Sorry, no, the object in question is indeed physical. It can be touched, dropped, kicked, smelled, used as a paperweight or bookend, bought, sold, stolen, given as a wedding gift, ground up into little pieces, melted, pawned, etc. Some would say it could be eaten, but probably only once. – Chowzen Sep 14 at 13:03
