Riddle me this

Post by redserpent on Tue Aug 11, 2009 2:52 pm

Bout time we get a riddle thread. I dunno about you guys, but I love riddles. Almost too much. Anyway. I was thinking I post a riddle, and the person who guessing correctly posts the next one, and so on. They can pass if they want, in which case the next poster can post a riddle. Shall we begin?

Oh, I should also mention that I personally like the riddles where people guess yes or no questions to work towards the final answer, so yeah.

A man is found dead in a room with 53 bicycles. How and why did he die?

He was shot for cheating at cards. Bicycle is a card brand, and there are only 52 in a deck.

My turn.

A plane crashes and evey single person dies. But a couple survives. How?

Hmm. I would guess that it's a word play on the word "single", implying that since the couple were not single, they lived. maybe?

What strength and force cannot break through,
I with a gentle touch can do
and many in the street would stand
were I not a friend at hand.

what am I?

You, my friend, are a key.

The sheep will sleep under the tree.
The cattle sleep in the barn.
The horse sleeps in the stables.
The dog slumbers in the farmhouse.
Where will the cat sleep?

The cat sleeps in the barn! ^_^


Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue, and gray,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way.
What am I?

March!

Though not a plant,
Has leaves.
Though not a beast,
Has spine.
Though many wouldn't need this thing
'Tis more valuable than wine.

What is it?

(Warning: this one has three possible answers)

There was a guy stuck in a metal room with a metal door. The door was locked and there were no windows. The following items were inside the room:
a piano, a table, a saw and a bat.
How did the man get out?

Oh, another one is that he saws the table in half, then puts the halves together to make the table whole, then he climbs out the hole.
