Posted:A friend of mine sent me this riddle and I am stumped:

People say you can tell nothing from my face.
I sound like I am useful in a fire.
I have connections to Royalty
People get undressed around me

If you can help me with the answer to that one, try this one:

"The beginning of eternity
The end of time and space
The beginning of every end,
And the end of every place."


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Perhaps something to do with poker?

As in:
1) poker face
2) poker, as in a fire poker
3) king, queen, jack
4) ??? can't think on this one? something w/a suit, perhaps?

Just my 2 cents...

(tries to remember this right)

What is neither fish nor flesh
Feathers nor bone
But still has fingers
And a thumb of its own?

Do I at least get a lousy copy of the "home version"?


Dance like it hurts; Love like you need money; Work like someone is watching.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.

Posted:Here are two that I've come across before:

What has one voice,
walks on four legs in the morning,
Two during the day,
And three in the evening?

(A version of the Riddle of the Sphinx)

What is greater than God, more evil than Satan,
The rich want it, the poor have it, and if you eat it, you will die?

Posted:"Is" is not "not."
"Not" is "not."
"Is" is "is."
"Is not" is not, is it not?

It most certainly is.

You could do it without the quotes but it's tougher to understand when reading. There are a few variations you could do as well in terms of commas and such but this is the first one that I could think of...

That was fun! Thanks!

The comma don't make no kinda sense...

good eough grammer for ya?

From house to house he goes,
A messenger small and slight.
And whether it rains or snows,
He sleeps outside at night.

An iron horse with a flaxen tail.
The faster the horse runs,
the shorter his tail becomes. What is it?
