Okay, I know a lot of boards have a riddle thread. I thought it may be fun to have one here. I'll start with a riddle that many may know . . . feel free to post your answer below, or add a new one!

A man is lying dead on the ground. Next to him is a rock. The man's death is because of the rock, but he did not get hit with the rock, nor did he trip over the rock. Who is the man, how did he die, and what kind of rock is it?

Feel free to ask questions, and good luck! wink.gif

Ok, here's another riddle.

I am, in truth, a yellow fork
From tables in the sky
By inadvertent fingers dropped
The awful cutlery.
Of mansions never quite disclosed
And never quite concealed
The apparatus of the dark
To ignorance revealed.

Good Luck!!!
