What Day Do Soldiers Hate the Most?

Answer: March fourth. (March forth!) 🙂


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?


What do you call four ducks in a box?
A box of quackers!


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


A little round man in a little red coat, a cane in his hand and a stone in his throat. What is he?
A cherry.


Twenty white horses upon a red hill, now they champ, now they stamp, now they stand still. What are they?
Your teeth! (This is an old one – maybe back then, twenty was about all anyone had!)


What goes up the chimney down, but not down the chimney up?
An umbrella.


What is black and white and re(a)d all over?
A newspaper.


What is black and white and black and white and black and white and black and white?
A penguin rolling down a hill. 


Know any good ones? Feel free to post them in the comments section.



P.S. Tomorrow is the last day to post flash-fiction entries for Line in the Sand.
