Riddle Me This!

Everyone loves a puzzle.  Test your mind.  Challenge your friends.  Take this opportunity to truly think outside the box.  You have 48 hours.  I’ll post the answers on Thursday, April 2nd.  There’s only one rule — NO GOOGLE!

Good Luck!


A truck driver is going the wrong way on a one-way street.  A policeman sees him but does not stop him or even write him a ticket.  Why?



A wise old king has no sons or daughters to leave his kingdom to, but he has 11 nieces and nephews.  He decides to test them to see which one is worthy to rule his kingdom after he dies.  He gives each one a pot of dirt and a seed and says, “Here is a chance to prove yourself.  You must plant this seed and honestly nurture it with no help from your parents or your friends.  In one year, I will see who has done the best job, and he or she will inherit the kingdom.
One year later, each of the nieces and nephews brings their plants back to the king.  Some have flourished, some are doing well, a couple are sickly and one pot has no plant at all.  The king says, “I now know who will inherit my kingdom.”  Who does he give his kingdom to, and why?

Two men are sitting at a bar.  One man is bragging about how well he knows popular music.  He says, “I know just about every song imaginable.  I’m so good, I’ll bet you $1,000.00 I can sing a popular song with you girlfriend’s name in it.”  The other man says, “You’ve got a bet.  My girlfriend’s name is Celeste Janelle.”  The braggart wins $1,000.00.  What song did he sing?

A black car is driving down a lonely rural road.  There are no street lights and the car does not have its headlights on.  There is no moon or starlight.  A black cat is sleeping in the middle of the road, but the driver stops before he hits the cat.  How does the driver know where the cat is sleeping?

  1. These were easy.

    1. The policeman is incompetent.
    2. Someone who is allergic to water.
    3. Marty – he always liked him best.
    4. Two bags of Funions and a half-eaten granola bar.
    5. Most of the women I dated in my 20’s.
    6. The Celeste Janelle Song – sung by Johnny Dark & The Midnighters circa 1959.
    7. I think all numbers are positive – but hey – I’m a glass half full kind of guy.
    8. The man is his father’s son. No wait – that’s an answer to another riddle.

    1. Great answers! I said “Think outside the box” and it looks like you succeeded beyond my wildest expectations. i think you and I may have dated the same women back in the day.
