To share our appreciation of all things “riddle” we thought we would share 10 of our favorite riddles. Answers are at the bottom of this blog.
But, first…

What is a riddle?

A riddle is a statement, question or phrase which has a double or veiled meaning, put forth as a puzzle to be solved (thank you Wikipedia).
Riddles can be two types. They can be (1) enigmas; or (2) conundra.
Enigmas are problems expressed in metaphorical or allegorical language that requires careful thinking in order to solve (for example, I’m tall when I’m young and I’m short when I’m old. What am I? A candle). These are more logical based riddles.
Conundra are usually difficult questions that rely on using a play on words (for example, what is the longest word in the dictionary? Smiles, because there is a mile between each ‘s’). These are the types or riddle that make you think riddles are silly or non-sensical.
