    Yes, it's a wheelbarrow - an airplane would have been a decent answer as well.

    Ok. I have one for you.

    A man lives on the 10th floor of an apartment building. He gets up in the morning and takes the elevator to the ground floor and goes off to work.

    When he gets home he takes the elevator to the 6th floor and takes the stairs the rest of the way.

    Why?

    P.S No the elevator is not broken.

    I've heard that one - so I'll refrain from answering this one. It's kinda funny.

    He has a phobia of pressing any button with a number higher than 6.

    Okay, since everyone agrees I got that one, and since he hasn't replied, I will go on ahead and post a riddle.

    "Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is."

    I know the answer and I also know that some people don't use it every day...

    Yea, thats right. I was just reading a answer to this riddle at: http://www.greece.k12.ny.us/taylor/topics/grypuzzle.htm

    Read that page, it makes since. I was sent the 'incorrect version' a while back and remember not being able to figure it out...now I get it. Your turn...

    PS, this is a awesome thread.

    Cool My turn:

    I'm not really more than holes tied to more holes; I'm as strong as steel, though not as stiff as a pole. What am I?

    I just saw that one yesterday, so once again I will refrain from answering.

    I've never heard of it before (that I can recall) but it seems pretty easy. A chain?

    Yeah, close enough. The official answer is a metal chain.

    I knew I should have posted a harder one!

    Congrats MattR Your Turn

    Ok one I found on the internet (don't search or you'll find it pretty easily):

    What's black when you get it,
    Red when you use it,
    And white when you're all through with it?
