Clean Up Your ActRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I venture steep chasms, up to thirty
Removing remnant particles dirty
Eliminating unwanted debris
In a post-consumption activity
To your daily regimen, I belong
Well, that is enough stringing you along
What am I?
lines 1-2: Since, for humans, there is a maximum of thirty-two teeth, sixteen upper and sixteen lower, there are, at most, thirty gaps ("chasms") between these teeth, fifteen between the upper teeth and fifteen between the lower teeth.
lines 3-4: One usually flosses "post-consumption", or after eating.
lines 5-6: It is a good practice to floss daily. Dental floss is like string, therefore the play on words "stringing you along".
