Riddle Me This

Hi all!


 Could you believe just writing about my experience with that awful movie ( It starts with~~~ The E------) I finished my post and then had to go down to the laundry room AKA The DARK SPOOKY BASEMENT and I was freaked out a bit! I am such a wimp!




Anyhoooo


I thought I would have a bit of fun today.


Do you like riddles?
                           
                                                  source


                         I LOVE them!


Here are some I found that are fun. You don't have to guess all or any for that matter...no rules here. No stressin'  OK?
             
                              source 
                                                                    

                                        Here goes.


    1.   You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the 
       outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?
  

     2.  Paul's height is six feet, he's an assistant at a butcher's shop, and 
        wears size 9 shoes. What does he weigh? 

     3.When you have me, you feel like sharing me. But, if you do share me,
        you don't have me. What am I?


     4.  I can sizzle like bacon,
          I am made with an egg,
          I have plenty of backbone, but lack a good leg,
          I peel layers like onions, but still remain whole,
          I can be long, like a flagpole, yet fit in a hole,
           What am I? 



     5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out 
         what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing
         was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual
         though. Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything
         odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out! Try to do so without
         any coaching!

OK do you think you have the answers? Tomorrow I will post them.

    Here's one for you:
    He who makes it, sells it.
    He who buys it, doesn't use it.
    He who uses it, doesn't know it.
    What is it?

  4. I once lived in a house that was well over 100 years old. The basement was made of the old barn block. Well let me tell you.... talk about spooky. Snakes would sneak in UGH!!! I hate snakes. I would tip toe down looking all around to be sure I didn't see any.

    So glad we moved, but other than that, I loved the place.
