Not only do I love old books, I also love old riddles. Since today was the inspiration for one of my lifelong favorites (I got it out of a Cracker Jack box in fourth grade), I am making March Fourth “Official Riddle Day” on Layinda’s Blog. A few of these are from when I was little, and a few are from when my grandparents were little, but do riddles ever really go out of style?

A box of quackers!

What’s 5q + 5q?
10q. (You’re welcome!)

Twenty white horses upon a red hill, now they champ, now they stamp, now they stand still. What are they?
