RIDDLE, n. A bureaucratic form of denial (see DELAY) that invokes the principle of confusion rather than that of silence.

Life's a riddle. Then you live until you figure out the answer, I think

Riddles? I'm not good at riddles. Aside from wondering just when the little wear in my jeans turned into a gigantic split. The only good news is that it's not in the butt region. My ego couldn't have handled that.

RIDDLE, it is disgusting because I always get them right! (Example: what animal is very unique in Australia?)

RIDDLE, ruler election riddle solved for Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court elects the winner!

RIDDLE, how do you catch a unique rabbit?

The last one is easy, those are the only two unique jokes I know.

Sorry I'm so late.

Mireille, do you mean you know the father?

mireille said...

Could it be The Great Sphinx of Giza (Arabic: أبو الهول "The Father of Fear")? xoxo

Pop, that market is up, actually.

Sorry to hear, TLP. Kleenex?

Amoeba, confusion is a lot more effective than silence to keep things quiet.

Pia, some punchline, huh?

Jenn, I'm glad to hear the rip was flattering.

Terry, the crows I think.

Alana, a bunch of Bavarian monks.

Quilly, when is a pun not a pun?

Sauerkraut, I have to admit I don't get the first reference.

Bear, that's a good riddle.

Mireille, I'm not sure but he walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon and three in the evening, that rake.

Jim, with sole hare power?

Ariel, this whole conversation is making me uncomfortable. I've never even been to Thebes.

Mireille, that must be it. Well solved!

Doug said...

It's true, Ariel!

Ariel the Thief said...

Doug said...

It didn't look like Thebes, anyway.
