Default Riddles

THE QUESTIONS

1. The maker doesn't want it, the buyer doesn't use it, and the user
doesn't see it. What is it?

2. A child is born in Boston, Massachusetts to parents who were both born in Boston, Massachusetts. The child is not a United States citizen. How is this possible?

3. Before Mount Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain on Earth?

4. Clara Clatter was born on December 27th, yet her birthday is always in the summer. How is this possible?

5. Captain Frank and some of the boys were exchanging old war stories. Art Bragg offered one about how his grandfather led a battalion against a German division during World War I. Through brilliant maneuvers he defeated them and captured valuable territory. After the battle he was presented with a sword bearing the inscription "To Captain Bragg for Bravery, Daring and Leadership. World War I. From the Men of Battalion 8." Captain Frank looked at Art and said, "You really don't expect anyone to believe that yarn, do you?" What's wrong with the story?

6. What is one thing that all wise men, regardless of their religion or
politics, agree is between heaven and earth?

7. In what year did Christmas and New Year's fall in the same year?

8. A woman from New York married ten different men from that city, yet she did not break any laws. None of these men died and she never divorced. How was this possible?

9. Why are 1990 American dollar bills worth more than 1989 American dollar bills?

10. How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?

11. A taxi driver was called to take a group of passengers to the train
station. The station is normally an hour away, but with traffic being extra heavy, it took a full hour and a half. On the return trip the traffic was still as heavy and yet it took only 90 minutes. Why?

12. How could you rearrange the letters in the words "new door" to make one word? Note: There is only one correct answer.

13. Even if they are starving, natives living in the Arctic will never eat a penguin's egg. Why not?

14. Which is correct to say, "The yolk of the egg are white" or "The yolk of the egg is white"?

15. In Okmulgee, Oklahoma, you cannot take a picture of a man with a wooden leg. Why not?

16. There were an electrician and a plumber waiting in line for admission to the "International Home Show." One of them was the father of the other's son. How could this be possible?

17. After the new Canon Law that took effect on November 27, 1983, would a Roman Catholic man is allowed to marry his widow's sister?

THE ANSWERS

1. A coffin.
2. The child was born before 1776.
3. Mount Everest--it just hadn't been discovered!
4. Clara lives in the Southern hemisphere.
5. World War I wasn't called "World War I" until World War II.
6. The word "and."
7. They fall in the same year every year. New Year's Day just arrives very early in the year and Christmas arrives very late in the same year.
8. The lady was a Justice of the Peace.
9. One thousand nine hundred and ninety-dollar bills are worth one dollar more than one thousand nine hundred and eighty-nine dollar bills.
10. Only once, then you are subtracting it from 20.
11. An hour and a half IS 90 minutes.
12. "one word"
13. Penguins live in the Antarctic.
14. Neither--the yolk of the egg is yellow.
15. You have to take a picture of a man with a camera, not with a wooden leg.
16. They were husband and wife.
17. He can't because he's dead.

9. Why are 1990 American dollar bills worth more than 1989 American dollar bills?

That's EASY!!!! 1,990 American Dollar bills are more than 1,989 American Dollar bills.

13. Even if they are starving, natives living in the Arctic will never eat a penguin's egg.

Because they ARE penguins?

Which is correct to say, "The yolk of the egg are white" or "The yolk of the egg is white"?

Neither, because the yolk of the egg is yellow.

Whoops, didn't see the answers at the bottom.[sm=red_smile.gif] My bad.

Here's one:

An electric train is moving 65 mph down its tracks headed south. If the train's going south, then which way will the smoke blow?

Wrong. The smoke won't go anywhere. It's an electric train.
