Riddle Me This...
« on: July 16, 2008, 02:17:06 PM »
I think we need a riddle thread.
whomever gets it should post their own to keep it uncluttered.
I'll try to get back here often to answer questions (unless there are no questions and this thread falls into past pages of obscurity).

A harvest sown and reaped on the same day
in an unplowed field,
which increases without growing,
remains whole though it is eaten within and without,
is useless yet the staple of nations.

*sigh* i guess i'll have to come up with something better then.

A man walks into a restaurant and orders albatross. he eats it, and then goes home and kills himself.

it's one of those yes/no question thingys.
try not to give it away (unless everyone has heard it already).

Do you mean where someone asks a yes/no question to reveal more details about the story?

It's a lateral thinking problem.

Was it something about the albatross that made him want to kill himself?

Would he have killed himself if he had ordered the chicken?
