School-Safe Puzzle Games

Either good or bad…

My first is either good or bad,

May please or may offend you;

My second, in a thirsty mood,

Can very much befriend you.

My whole, though called a cruel word,

Is often deem’d a kind one;

With smiles it sometimes may be heard,

With tears, at others, blind one.

What am I? You may submit your answers below in the comment section. Will unmask Wednesday or Thursday. If you’re not sure how to solve, here’s a similar rilddle.

    […] 3 items up at once late Sunday night, so some of you may have missed the grasshoppers, and a neat word riddle.  Also, Roly poly cannon now loads quicker with mochi ads disabled, thank you […]

    Hey Hex-what are you doing over here in word territory! Aren’t you just supposed to be getting the ultra hard math ones :?:

    Fuzzy, Hex, and Smarty got this hard word riddle right- Farewell

    Kiss and Fairplay are also interesting and work to a degree.

    Sorry I initially missed your answer there, bizarette18.

    You, Hex, Fuzzy (and Shawn usually too) are actually impressively good at both the math and word puzzles.

    it was just a guess. didn’t much understand that sentence:”My first is either good or bad,

    May please or may offend you;” Could someone just explain it to me?
