    Here's one...

    Every day, a cyclist crosses the border between Spain and France carrying a bag. No matter how much customs officials investicate him, they do not know what he is smuggling. Do you?

    I finally thought of one!
    It may be really easy, but here it goes anyways,

    What walks on 4 legs at dawn, 2 legs in the afternoon and 3 legs at night?

    For Bay's the answer is Humans. They walk on four legs when they are born, two legs in the middle of life, and three as they get older.

    applause to woofer and amidala wannabe for cracking that pun-tastic riddle.

    But y'know, I always thought the answer to Bayley's riddle was a donkey.

    In the morn. it's got four legs. It loses two of the in a wheat thresher accident around noon. The vet's able to graft one back on by the time night rolls around.

    I wanted to get a complete version of the Oxford English Dictionary, but they couldn't complete my copy because the river was flooding.

    It was abridged over troubled water.







    See? Tragic isn't the only punster around here!

    I think the word would be QUEUEING, as in "queueing" up for a week to see Episode II.

    Here are some more, if you have some valuable time to waste:

    1. What is a 6-letter word which begins and ends with a vowel, but with no vowels in between? (there are 2)

    2. What is a word with 3 dotted letters in a row? (there are 2)

    3. What is a country whose name has only 1 syllable? (there are 4)

    4. A palindrome is a word that is spelled the same forwards and backwards. Can you think of any that are 7-letters long? (there are 5)

    5. What is a word with 3 double letters in a row?

    6. What is a word that begins and ends with the letters UND (there are 2)

    7. What is a 5-letter word that contains 5 personal pronouns? (he, her etc.)

    8. The word PINK has 8 separate meanings. What are they?

    9. What is the only commonly used word in the English language where F is pronounced like a V?

    10. What is the only letter not to appear in the names of the U.S. states?


    English Rox! ( Hmmmmmmmm......would that be the Cliffs of Dover?)
