    LOL!!! That's not what I had in mind but an incredibly funny answer. I suppose the 'red' would be the blood in plastic surgery? Oh my. Should I grant him the win, everyone?

    Close -- but you've got the right idea. 'Charcoal' -- like match light and such? You're up skipper!

    A schoolkids one:

    Thirty white horses
    On a red hill
    First they stamp
    Then they champ
    Then they stand still


    I'm pretty sure everyone knows that one.

    Well, it looks like teeth could be the right answer, but nobody is replying. Polymath, is teeth right?

    That's very similar to the riddle Golum asked Frodo (was it Frodo in The Hobbit ?)

    Nope, it's Bilbo, and I think it is spelled "Gollum" - but I could be wrong.

    Yeah, it's a bit like that. All of the riddles Gollum asks are similar really. Pretty clever, as well.

    Yea, I have to admit I just read that answer the day before when I was looking at riddles on the internet. But I answered anyways cause I want to go...

    You have two coins that total 30 cents. One of the coins is not a nickel. What are the two coins?

    A quarter and a nickle - the quarter is not a nickel, so therefore, ONE of the coins is not a nickle

    Sounds way too easy though am I right?

    Let's see. . . one coin is not a nickel, so that would be the quarter, and the other one is a nickel. You only said one coin. Am I right?

    LOOK ABOVE

    Yeah TWT, I was trying to type fast because I had a strange feeling somebody was typing at the same time. My instincts are right like always

    Someone else can go - how about WebWizard, he just barely missed it anyway. I'd much rather try to answer new ones than go dig up one online again.

    Great. I'd love to go, Chris
