Riddle Me This

Postby silverphoenix » Fri Jan 16, 2009 12:34 am

Hey guys, do you know any great riddles/brain teasers/mind-bogglers/cerebrum-strainers? Share them here!

I actually need to find a good riddle for a homework assignment so help me out, thanks.

I'll start with a lame one:

Fred and Angie have been found dead on the floor with spilled water and pieces of broken glass next to them. There was no one else at home, only the cat. How did Fred and Angie die?

(I can't remember if there was already a thread like this already *if there is, I don't know where* or not... so I'll post anyway)

Death by fish. The glass and the water are from a fishtank.

The cat is trying desperately to get to the goldfish inside the fish tank located above (or near) Angie and Fred. When it is knocked over they either A) get hit on the head with a plummeting fish tank B) choke on a fish C) drown in the water or D) shards of broken glass cut something important and they die.

Or something like that.... that's my best guess.

What runs all around a feild but never moves?

The answer to the first one is Fred and Angie are fish.
I don't know the latest one. Hmmm.
Cools!

ZOMFG is that a COIN?! :shiny:

A fence. And fowl111 is correct, Fred and Angie are actually the fish. Smiley for you! :thumbsup:

You have to admit, I was close to that one. And yeah, it's a fence. I suck at riddles. XD

A key, right?

I've got a fun one. ^^

I am black and white, but not a zebra
I can be flat as a paper, or sharp as a knife
I flip open and closed, yet I am not a door
I can be quiet as silence, and yet loud as an orchestra.
I often appear in cartoons, killing a few
What am I?
The quandary of Autumn's child
I'm not sure if falling leaves
are merely butterflies that
have died or photographs
we don't remember taking.

Oh, I've got another one if anyone's interested.

What do you get when you drop a piano down a mine?

Or is this a joke? I can't remember.

A flat miner!!! (A flat minor) Yes, it's a joke. I'm pretty sure there's already a thread for this. Who cares.

OH! Hahaha I get it. This is from my favorite movie:

What's green, hangs on a wall, and whistles?

It's actually "A minor B flat!" but that's close enough, gooooood job :D

This one's a classic:

You're trapped in a room with nothing but a mirror and a table, how do you get out?

I'm sure there was, too, but it's pretty obsolete now, so I think this is ok.

I've heard a different version of the joke. As for the riddle, walk out. There are no walls or doors or anything. I don't even know if that would classify as a room.
