4. Answer the 5 riddles that are provided by the lovely person (or people, in my case) who tagged you.

Jane's Riddles:

1: This old one runs forever, but never moves at all. He has not lungs nor throat, but still a mighty roaring call. What is it?

Hmm... I think I know the answer to this one!

2: What meets you at the end of everything?

 I might have an answer for this one.

3: What do the letter 'T' and an island have in common?

Not sure to be honest...

4: What has a head, a tail, is silver and has no legs?

...I may need to recruit Zach's help... Thank you Zach :)


5: What do you throw out when you want to use it, but take in when you don't want to use it?

I know! I know! At least I think I know...

Clare's Riddles:

Riddle One: A man went on a trip with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. He came upon a stream which he had to cross and found a tiny boat to use to cross the stream. He could only take himself and one other - the fox, the goose, or the corn - at a time. He could not leave the fox alone with the goose or the goose alone with the corn. How does he get all safely over the stream?

Isn't one of these a bird that can swim? I have no idea...

Riddle Two: A farmer in SA owns a beautiful pear tree. He supplies the fruit to a nearby grocery store. The store owner has called the farmer to see how much fruit is available for him to purchase and ask if he can pick it up in five days time. The farmer knows that the main trunk has 24 branches. Each branch has exactly 12 boughs and each bough has exactly 6 twigs. Since each twig bears one piece of fruit, how many plums will the farmer be able to deliver?

And I thought I was finished math for the day... Luckily I had a Zach with me!

Riddle Three: Why was the belt arrested?

Ahahaha.... I have absolutely "no clue."

Riddle Four: You heard me before
Yet you hear me again
Then I die
'till you call me again

'Might know and I might not... This could be a lot of things.


Riddle Five: Can an English man legally marry his widow's sister?

Wait-a-minute...


5. Tag 5 or more  bloggers (Please please please don't tag me back!).

I hereby nominate Corey at CJR Odyssey!

(I'm just gonna ignore the "5 or more" part of that rule...)


6. Provide 5 different riddles in your post for the people you tagged.

The First: There were 10 horses and 9 paddocks. How do you fit all 10 horses in the paddocks with only 1 allowed in each paddock?

The Second:  When you don't have enough of me, you feel a kind of gloom. But when you are using me, it is time that you consume. What am I?

The Third: Imagine you are swimming in the middle of the ocean and a bunch of hungry sharks surround you. How do you get out alive?

The Fourth: A man who couldn't speak went into a store to buy a toothbrush. He pretended to brush his teeth with his finger to tell the cashier what he wanted. The cashier understood and the man went home with the toothbrush. Then, a blind man came into the store wanting to buy sunglasses. How could he tell the cashier he wanted sunglasses?

The Fifth: What has rivers but no water, forest but no trees and cities but no people?


Have fun! (If you decided to do it, that is... I ain't forcing you to do it :) )


7. Comment the link to your post on each blogger's blog or let them know in some way or another.

  1. Yay, you did the post..... I think I am going to find your answers amusing.... I tried to answer your riddles and when I thought I had answered them looked them up..... I got the 3rd one wrong... I figured you could just climb into the boat next to you.... as it never said there was no boat....

    1. Hmm... I didn't think of that! (Probably because I had already seen the answer.) It would make sense if there was a boat next to you though... Especially if you're in the middle of the ocean!

  2. Obviously you got tired of my continuous asking every time I saw you and decided to do the post! :D I did try to find fairly easy riddles for you. I hope they weren't too hard. :)

    1. Aye, something like that :)

      The riddles were a bit hard at first glance but once I stared at them long enough (and recruited Zach) they did seem much easier :D

  3. I'm just gonna go straight to the point and put my answers down because I just realized this is kinda one week over due... Teehehe... Oops.

    Alright! Answers for Jane's riddles:

    Riddle One: A river

    Riddle Two: The letter 'g' ?

    Riddle Three: They are both in the middle of water :D

    Riddle Four: A coin... I think.

    Riddle Five: A net.

    Answers for Clare's Riddles:

    Riddle One: Now, I'll admit I had to look this one up because I could not figure it out. Apparently you take the goose over first, then the fox, bring the goose back with you so the fox doesn't eat him/her and then dump the goose back at the starting point and then your mission is accomplished... I hope that made sense!

    Riddle Two: None. (Because I'm pretty sure he owns a PEAR tree and not a PLUM tree...) :D

    Riddle Three: Because it held up the pants?

    Riddle Four: An echo or a breath... I'm not really sure!

    Riddle Five: Nope!
