Except at a funeral,

I am a welcome guest.

Those who want me, honestly,

Leave little room for jest.

Though I am worth a bundle,

I do regret to say,

No one yet has beaten mine,

in cheaper ways to pay.

dirt?

funeral - hole, no dirt

honestly wanted - land/real estate

Cheap - dirt cheap?

laughter?

To help a bit - just in terms of summing up wrong answers

It is not laughter, joy, smiling, rejoicing...

It cannot be because the riddle says "those who want me honestly leave little room for jest"

If it helps you can ask specific questions about parts of riddle if you need to.

Personally, I thought of something more physical when I first read the riddle:

Except at a funeral,

I am a welcome guest.

Those who want me, honestly,

Leave little room for jest.

Though I am worth a bundle,

I do regret to say,

No one yet has beaten mine,

in cheaper ways to pay.

My answer is an Excavator Machine, and I'll explain in a perfectly logical way.

Guest part - Obviously seeing the Excavator sitting there at a funeral would be a little disturbing, knowing that it is about to bury your beloved one.

Honesty & Jest - Excavators are very big, expensive pieces of equipment and I doubt someone would joke around about spending that much money to buy or even hire an Excavator Machine.

Worth - Same as above

Cheaper way - They can probably dig up a grave 1000 times faster than a guy with a shovel.

Logic stands. Cookie please.

I like the puzzles I've seen from you so far dancer, although I'm greener than you...

No the answer will be simple and apparent, no need to stretch your imagination that far. I would suggest start from the beginning, translate lines so they make sense to you and go from there.

Here is a my FIRST BIG HINT, for those who want it

I mentioned the funeral only because I needed to make an additional clarification, as in make a distinction between something appropriate vs inappropriate, where the two are actually very similar but in this setting quite different.

Respect

You show respect at a funeral for the person who died, but any other time people want to be respected.

Respect is something serious, so you would laugh about it or make fun of it.

Being respected can be a valuable thing, and it gives authority and power.

It also costs nothing to pay someone respect.

dancer, have you broken your trend of simple, tangible things? Is this one a bit more abstract?

You've got me thinking on this one...

i don't see it but if you want break it down for me line by line - I accept as correct any answer that fits all my clues but I think only the answer I have in mind can do that.

Interesting try though.

I shed green quickly cool newbie. This is by far the most original answer EVER. But you get no cookie friend. You are making clues fit your answer but your answer doesn't really fit the clues.

But I am, you know, charmed. Thanks so much for liking my riddles.

But the answer we are looking for is NOT WELCOME at a funeral. So can't be respect. But all this you say is relevant to the answer.

You know palmerc7 if I break that trend it will be because of you but the time it seems has not yet come.

All the answers to my riddles are something one sees all the time, or does all the time, or uses

Simple. Always simple.
