RIddle me, riddle you!

YAY! Riddles...

----------

Here's a few for y'all...

This guy living on the 20th floor in an apartment building got up early each morning to go to work in a downtown store. He always went into the elevator on the 20th floor and rode down to the entrance (1st floor). When he came home he always rode the elevator from the entrance and up to the 8th floor. He walked out of the elevator and walked the stairs up to his apartment on the 20th floor.

Why don't he take the elevator all the way up to his apartment?


Answer: He's a midget and can't reach the 20 button, can only reach up tot he 8 button.


A man is found dead in a field. A package is lying next to him. He has not died of natural causes, nor has he been shot, strangled, poisoined etc. How did he die?

Answer: He's a skydiver. The package is his unopened parachute.

What being, with only one voice, has sometimes two feet, sometimes three, sometimes four, and is the weakest when it has the most?

Answer: The riddle the SPhinx asked Oedipus. The answer is "Man".


I have no wings, yet I can fly. I have no flippers, yet I can swim with the dolphins. I have no hope, yet I fight anyway...what am I?

Answer: A person.

I am a room without walls, windows or doors. What am I?

Answer: I'm told this a mushroom. I worded it wrong. I intended it to be egg but...

----------

OK, maybe five but...

1. He wasn't tall enough to reach the 20th button. He was able to ride down to the first floor in the morning because the first floor button is at the bottom, but when he comes home, he can't reach all the way up to the 20th button, therefore he reaches up to the 8th which I'm assuming is the highest one he can reach, and walks the stairs up the rest of the way.

2. The unopened package is a parachute I'm guessing, since falling from a plane doesn't fall under any of those categories. Possibly more than one answer to this one.

3. In the words of Oedipus, "Man." Now throw yourself in the sea, Sphinx!

4. A pothead? I dunno about this one.

5. A mushroom.

You got the first three right...and you're the only one so far to pick up on the Sphinx's...wherever else I've submitted or posted them, no-one has seen the link...

(out of interest...you haven't got the book of Greek mythology by Robert Graves have you???)

Keep on guessing at the last two...anyone else wanna try??

By the way, I'm pretty sure my answer to the 5th one is correct. I have no idea about the 4th one though.

I know for a fact you're wrong about the fifth...

As for the fourth...you're nearly there...just don't think of drugs etc...

My bad if the wording isn't perfect, but look in the Hobbit, and I'm pretty sure you will find that riddle and the answer as an egg.

Btw, googling riddles is lame.

Oh, and the riddle is from the Hobbit is as follows:

A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

(All the riddles he asks rhyme.)
