Riddles!

Postby Matbow » Thu Mar 02, 2006 5:34 pm

Monsoons riddle in the quiz thread has got me flumoxed, but it gave me a good idea - a whole riddle forum! The one who answers asks the next question!

An easy one to start off with:

A woman has 7 children, half of them are boys. How can this be possible?

Is that easy? I'm obviously not very good with Riddles. Monsoon's just brought a blank expression on my face. Not a clue about his or this one! :oops:

Okay, having cleverly answered the riddle, I must say I can't think of one right now, so I'm leaving the floor open to someone who isn't as silly as me :)

While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.

Ok lets see..

Being at the same time both little and tall and sometimes found in toilet,
this creature is known to sit atop a castle in a dragon's land.

Who or what is it?

Nobody playing here or what? :cry:
Find one word from the first line and another word in the second line to make a complete name.
Regular forum members will know this, although a change has occurred which i wasn't aware of. :roll:
