Ok, this is a obvious one.

A man goes to a train station on Friday, he is then taken somewhere else and stayed there three days, he then got back on Friday also. How is this possible?

  Haha, this is a clever one, Aurora!  Is the train station named Friday?  I don't know, that's my best guess.

So...any more riddles?


Here's a simple one while we're waiting for some harder puzzlers:


One man married over twenty women--yet he was not a bigamist, he did not get divorced, and none of the women died.  How did he do this?

A few more oldies: 

 "Brothers and sisters, have I none, but that man's father is my father's son."

Little Miss Etticoat,
In a white petticoat,
And with a red nose.
The longer she stands,
The shorter she grows.


And a good one for Santharia:

I have a heart that never beats,
I have a home but I never sleep.
I can take a man's house and build another's,
And I love to play games with my many brothers.
I am a king among fools.
Who am I?

Um...because marrying over twenty people is not technically bigamy?  I'm not sure.

I think he's referring to himself, though using 'that' in this case is rather weird.

For Alysse question, was the man who married over twenty women a priest?

Yup, the 'marrying man' is a pastor/priest.

Miss Etticoat is indeed a candle!

And the brotherless man is pointing to a picture of himself or into a mirror....


The 'Friday' one is cute - it reminds me of an old joke we used to tell each other - though with that hint you'll probably guess right away.  Alysse, I know you know this one, so don't say anything!

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

strange name, 'What do you think'

Reminds me of the one we asked about a chinese man, which is kind of hard to translate into english. The dutch version is 'Hoe lang is een Chinees'. It's difficult to translate, because 'How tall is a chinese man' doesn't sound chinese *grins* and 'how long is...' isn't really the right question, at least that's what I remember from my grammar courses.

Here's one that undoubtedly many of you have heard already, but nobody has typed yet.

The beginning of eternity
the end of time and space
the beginning of all end
and the end of every place.
