RIDDLE 1

5 is 4 and so is 9.

2 is 3, 3 is 5, and again 5 is 4

Based on that, 8 is 5, and 5 is 4.

And since 4 is 4, 4 is magical.

So what's 10?


RIDDLE 2

A man built it but didn't want it.

Another man bought it but didn't need it.

Another man used it but didn't know it.

What was it?


RIDDLE 3

Throw me out the window

And I'll leave a grieving wife,

Bring me back, but through the door,

And I'll be giving out new life.

What am I?

Riddle 2---No idea.

You're all so rubbish at these. Roger is in butterfly mode and Tarks seems to think the first two are about him.

The first is about letters and the third is about a letter.

The second (which could be about Norton Antivirus) is actually about something made of wood.

The answer to the second one is "coffin" and it's one of the most contrived and pointless riddles I've ever heard. It's awful.

You're better than this, Mince.

Or maybe it's a magazine rack. I told you it was awful.
Or an ark. Or a shed.
I'm going to bed now.

I wrote two simply because of the Norton Antivirus answer.

Another:

We stand on lines: when together, it's a crime. What are we?
