RIDDLE, n. Who elects our rulers?
2008 Update: A daughter of the sphinx that tests the wit of boys and the surrender of men.
No one - they buy the job [the old sage]
Riddle: What can you catch but not throw?
I've got one right now: a cold.
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.
Who rules our elected?
Getting rid of the dull.
Riddle: Tom! Plague and lover of Hahrree Pottah.
Or, Tom DeLay. (enjoy the silence. ...)
diebold voting machines,now known as "premier election solutions"...when is a coup,not a coup...2000

Sorry I'm so late.
Mireille, do you mean you know the father?
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?

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!
Riddle's are daughter's of The Riddler?
I prefer crosswords.
Me too, Cooper.
It's true, Ariel!
It didn't look like Thebes, anyway.
