Riddle: What is it?


This week's Friday Funny is a riddle.  See if you can figure it out: It gives me orders or tells me nothing. It butters me up or it insults. It  has a point yet it makes no sense. Uses too many words or also none. It’s an annoyance, but also funny. "I" cannot do it, yet "it" will not stop. I try to stop it, but it keeps coming. I tire of its cunning. What is it? You can post your answers here or post this riddle and your answer on your own blog with a link back here.  I'll post the answer in a few days. Check back to see if you were right. [NOTE: The answer is now in my comment to this blogpost] For more communication fun, visit Art of Eloquence.com!

    Ok. Here’s the answer. I wrote this with a particular email issue in mind. Something we all suffer with each day.

    Drum roll please…

    SPAM! Read my poem again and replace the word “it” with the word “SPAM”.
