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

Good tries!

Okay, a hint. The rock is green, and the size doesn't matter.

What does "wayhey" mean? I heard it on Quidditch World Cup and wondered what it meant.

Right next Riddle, a simple one I think

QUOTE
The poor have lots of it. The rich don't. Eating it will kill you. What is it?



One rule to add to this thread as I have seen similar things spoilt on other sites

Only the poster of the Riddle may say whether your answer is correct or not and then pass the baton on to you so please wait for them to post/congratulate you etc etc should that someone not pop in for a day or two only then start a new clue
