# Riddle of the Week

## Recommended Posts

Here's a fun game that everyone can play. One person starts with a riddle, and gives everyone a week to try to guess the answer. Whoever guesses first gets to post their own riddle, and it goes on and on. If no one can get the riddle after a week, the answer will be posted along with a new riddle. Here's the starter:

You use a knife to cut my head

then weep beside when I am dead

What if we know the answer but don't know many good riddles to post in return...

##### Share on other sites

Then post the answer and post an easy riddle, it doesn't matter really how hard it is.

##### Share on other sites

Alright, I guess I'll take a shot at the answer...

[hide]an onion[/hide]

a man walks out on his porch, shoots a bear, and proceeds to walk one mile south, one mile west, and one mile north back to his home. What color was the bear?

edit:

whoops... sorry

Oh well, I know yours too...that was the one I was going to use. It's one of the best I know. And spoiler tags are [ hide ].

[hide]white[/hide]

[ hide ] onion and white

Someone explain the white one to me. I think it has something to do with the poles?

##### Share on other sites

when youre at the north pole the only direction you can head is south, from there you may then travel east or west, but if you travel north again youll end up where you started from, having walked in a triangle.

the most likely color of a bear in the north pole is White

Oh yeah, I forgot to post one. Like I said, I don't know too many so here goes:

What goes up and down the stairs without ever moving?

YT, I dont think you're supposed to put spaced between the brackets.

##### Share on other sites

And you need to put [/hide] at the end.

Am I right, Jordan? If I am, I get to post the next riddle because I posted before YT.

##### Share on other sites

Haha, YT sorry if I confused you with the tags earlier. Yeah, take the spaces out and put the one at the end like the two above said.

Kyrisch, I'm going to have to give this to YT. YT had the correct answer, though banister was close. He hasn't given a riddle yet, might as well let him go. But for future refrence you might need to make a rule about stuff like this.

they dont weigh the same the pound of feathers weighs more because gold and feathers are not weighed using the same measurement.

Not quite. Although gold would be measured in troy pounds and feathers in avoirdupois pounds, when comparing the two you can only assume that the person who measured them out would not be stupid enough to use two separate scales.

lets update that riddle to Killograms for future ref

Are you drunk?

"If neither "avoirdupois" nor "troy" is specified, the international pound (avoirdupois) is meant and is by law the only proper definition in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada;"

I'll slip one in while everone's arguing. Which is worth more, a barrel of nickles or half a barrel of dimes? (US 5 cent and 10 cent coins, respectively)
