    $\begingroup$ If it's the answer then the riddle is almost all "chaff". I'm sure we're not the only people who've noticed rot13(gur npebfgvp) but not posted an answer because surely there must be more going on. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I feel like this can't be the answer, but I'll give it a go anyway!

This puzzle seems to be an acrostic puzzle, as the acrostic gives us CARROT. Also, adding to the "confusion", carrots do in a way resemble Cheetos. More specifically, the carrot could be baby carrot as one of the lines says "stop teasing me for my height". Lastly, thanks to Belhenix, a baby carrot tends to split through the middle thus explaining the last line.

So the answer I am going with is:

It is a baby carrot

    $\begingroup$ I saw that acrostic too but what do you think the lines are referring to? I didn't really have any idea $\endgroup$
