My first question, and I made this riddle.

Given a person you do not know, add me and they become more dangerous

Given a rehearsed speech, add me and then put it on a Victrola

Given an extinct bird, add me and it becomes a popular Indonesian treat

Given an eel trap, add me and it becomes a scheme

What am I?

I expect this to be answered quickly, but have fun nonetheless!

The answer is

The letter L

Given a person you do not know, add me and they become more dangerous

STRANGER becomes STRANGLER

Given a rehearsed speech, add me and then put it on a Victrola

I guess this is supposed to be PATTERdef. 2 becoming PLATTER

Given an extinct bird, add me and it becomes a popular Indonesian treat

DODO becomes DODOL

Given an eel trap, add me and it becomes a scheme

POT becomes PLOT

Answer:

The letter L

person you don't know:

stranger becomes strangler

Extinct bird:

Dodo becomes dodol which is a toffee

eel trap:

Pan to plan?

rehearsed speech:

Patter to platter.

Couple of them are a stretch.

  • $\begingroup$ I thought of the same thing for the speech, but that word really doesn't mean "rehearsed" at all. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Apr 24 at 20:26
  • $\begingroup$ @GentlePurpleRain Yeah, way down the list of definitions was to speak or sing rapid-fire words in a theatrical performance. So I went with it lol $\endgroup$ – likwidfire2k Apr 24 at 20:27
