A Blind House & A Backwards Kingdom

Question

Posted · Report post

Though secretive I am not

We'll have a ball, but -have a care!

Suspended, nigh unchanging

(In use, you cannot breathe in here)

I've been screwed over many times

My lips are sealed up tight

Because of me, many learn

And some laugh at the night

Good stylish riddle but I think it's been nailed already.

That's too good an answer to not take it as an alternate. (That's what I get for changing the riddle at the last minute.)

I'll let it keep going for today at least in case anyone wants to take a crack at my intended answer.

The "original" version, if you want to give it a go:

By many names yet made by one

I keep what grows under the sun

Though secretive I am not

We'll have a ball, but -have a care!

Suspended, nigh unchanging

(In use, you cannot breathe in here)

I've been screwed over many times

My lips are sealed up tight

Because of me, many learn

And some laugh at the night

Not what I'm looking for with this one Shakee.

(& I understand about the spoilers. They take some getting used to.)

Generally speaking, I believe you to be headed in the right direction.

This seems a little off-the-wall, but I can't help thinking of

plastic bags for produce from a grocery store, complete with twist-tie

Mason Jars, also commonly known as glass canning jars, jam jars, fruit jars, & Ball jars

All of them are now made by the same company in the U.S.

Used mainly to hold & preserve foods, especially fruits & vegetables ("canned")

Made of transparent glass to see the contents. Free Masons - often considered a secret fraternity/organization.

Ball & Kerr (pronounced like car, but often mispronounced as 'care') are common U.S. brands of mason jars.

Many people enjoy home canning, but it requires you to follow careful rules.

Mason jars are used for canning in order to preserve foods.

Air is removed during processing (creating an anaerobic environment)

Modern jars use screw-on rings/bands that are reusable (until they get rusty, fyi)

and flat lids with a sealant to keep the vacuum

Ball State University, named for the Ball brothers of Ball Canning fame

David Letterman, famous alumnus of Ball State, late-night comedy

And the title? Maison - i, Raj reversed = Mason Jar
