Oh, yes, I know that one (grins)

The letter "e".

Yes, priest (or minister, or other reverend authority) is right for my riddle.

More, more!

Most riddles I know are in Dutch, and most of them only work in dutch too. But maybe I can translate some...

What's red and it flies around the church?

What's white and it runs through the desert?

What's red and it goes up and down?

What's yellow, it flies through the sky and it weighs 50 kilos?

The next three questions belong together:

What's one elephant in a tree?
What's two elephants in a tree?
What's three elephants in a tree?

I used to know a bunch of these. I hope they're also funny in English :p

I think I know number four of Irid's....  :)


A giant winged banana!




And Irid, how do you get four elephants into a Volkswagen Beetle?

Okay, kind of a snarky guess for Irid's first riddle:

A (red) hot rumour?


All right, I just couldn't resist that.  Sorry (but not very)  :D

Sorry, neither of you are correct. Judith's answer was absurd enough to be possible, but it's even absurder *grins*

And I don't know the one to Judith's riddle :p

What about this one:

The man who makes it doesn't want it, The man who buys it doesn't need and The man who uses it doesn't know it?

Deci is right about the elephants in the Volkswagen!  Aurora, you've nailed the coffin (sorry, couldn't resist) riddle.

Another try at some of  Irid's:


What is yellow, 50 kilos, and flies through the sky?              Dumbo the elephant with a raincoat on!
What is red and flies around the church?                           A pigeon with a bad sunburn!
What is red and goes up and down?                                 An embarrassed yoyo!
What is white and runs through the desert?                      A melting snowman!

Nope, sorry. They could be the answer though, as I said, they're absurd enough... If you want me to give the answer to one of them, so you can still try to answer the rest, just tell me :)
