Some say we are red
Some say we are green
Some play us
Some spray us

What are we?

Pepper?

haha, not even close.  This was a tough one.

Silly string is a very close fit to the riddle. If the third line were "Some play with us" it would have to be regarded as a correct answer.

What I didn't understand after I looked up the answer was how one could play with pepper. I am not great with understanding sports.

It's also a derivetive of Euchre that uses just 24 cards.

Either way, I wouldn't have gotten it. I don't even know how to play poker.

The sports angle was what first came up from a google search:

Tried to edit my initial post, but was outside the 2 hour limit.

Just wanted to add:
5. If a riddle gets answered correctly, but that person neither passes or poses a new riddle, the default is a pass after a reasonable time (say, 4-6 hours)

Nice! I really wasn't sure about that one.

I'm a bit busy right now, so I'll pass this off this time in order to keep things moving.

I realized it could kill the game if the person with the correct answer never posed or passed.

RE: Riddle me this.
You also have to factor in the fact that not everyone is awake 24/7.

So far, it seems there are only three of us responding here.

So, maybe slow it down a bit.

Sorry if I have changed my roll, but my thought processes are not always on point considering my mind is always on multiple things at once.
