Riddles Galore
« on: September 01, 2010, 08:46:30 pm »

Okay, I know that this has to have been posted before, but I haven't seen it so...

I'm going to post a riddle then you guys post the answer. first person to answer correctly posts the next one and so on. I'd prefer it if you guys would wait for the person who posted the riddle to tell you that your answer is correct before posting another one.

let's start easy:

I have a thousand holes and yet I can hold water. what am I?

Naboo, from star wars. It has no solid core. You can take a sub straight through it to the other side. Thus it holds water but is full of holes.

You really can both sig it.
But... That would break the laws of sigging! We can't have everyone running around with the same quotes. IT MAKES THEM UNFUNNY FASTER!

You are in a house with four walls that all face south. What color is the bear outside?

A promise.

What does man love more than life?
Fear more than death or mortal strife?
What do the poor have, what the rich require,
And what contented men desire?
What does the miser spend, the spendthrift save,
And all men carry to their graves?

And what contented men desire?

And all men carry to their graves?

Nothing, of course.


A Harpy, winged, watches coldly.
A Satyr, piping, prances boldly.
A Naga guarding, ever more.
A Golem carved as from the floor.
A Werewolf will round out the five.
Choose the right one to stay alive!

Every monster likes to eat,
But which finds Humankind a treat?
Each one dwells in just one place,
A single drink is for each race,
All have colors, one apiece,
The key is which on Human feasts.

One-half-a-goat lives in the Trees,
The Serpentine, on Half-Elf feeds,
The Hairy One fills up on Grog,
Left of the Dungeon are Cliffs Of Fog,
Cliff dwellers all drink Ale, they say,
He who eats Gnomes is fond of Gray,

Deep in the Cave, one favors Red,
In Center is the Wino's bed,
The Feathered Femme lives in the First,
The friend of Brown, for Beer will thirst,
The beast who prefers all things Blacker,
Resides next to the Dwarf-kin snacker,

Tis beside the one in Red,
Resides an Elven eater's stead,
Next to the Pit, the Flier dwells,
The Construct thinks that Green is swell,
A neighbor of the Black of heart,
Feels drinking Water is an art.

No more clues will help your plight,
So give the answer, when it's right.
Though when it's known, they'll be no doubt,
So please don't plead, don't beg, don't pout.
Divine the answer, though it's cruel,
Who eats Humans as a rule?
