# A Funny Riley Riddle

Riddle me this:

My prefix can rip and tear, pointy or curled,
Where ours mainly grip unless werewolves exist.

My suffix is greener in one perfect world.
Some yellow is seen, where some gardens consist.

My infix has rules unlike the underworld.
It governs like schools; do not break or resist!

And now change the vowel to between the IP.
Or throw in the towel, but that works if you see.

What could I be?

The answer is just $$5$$ letters long, and the title owns a clue.

• as always a pretty nice riddle, and the rhyming was good too.. Sep 19, 2018 at 8:27
• @ShahriarMahmudSajid thank you, again. I am actually going to edit just one other thing to make it rhyme a little better... annd done :P Sep 19, 2018 at 8:27

Is it:

My prefix can rip and tear, pointy or curled,
Where ours mainly grip unless werewolves exist.

My suffix is greener in one perfect world.
Some yellow is seen, where some gardens consist.

lawn

My infix has rules unlike the underworld.

law

And now change the vowel to between the IP.
Or throw in the towel, but that works if you see.

Here is the part that tells us to change the A to O, and you get -> clown :)

• Yes, you got the answer! Everything is correct... but where is the infix explanation? Also, there is another explanation for the "throw in the towel" part, which I am sure you would figure out, as your main explanation for the last verse is correct. Sep 19, 2018 at 8:18
• Oh, sry, forgot to write, I'm editing it! Done ^^ Sep 19, 2018 at 8:20
• I'm guessing the Infix is ROT13(ynj) Sep 19, 2018 at 8:22
