A while ago AOM had a trivia group that played a game where one asked a question and who ever got the answer first was allowed to pick the next trivia question. Maybe we could do that with riddles in this thread?
I will start it off.
A beast of iron lies in a dark tunnel. It is deadly but can only attack when pulled back. What is it?
You got it! Your riddle now!
Or a cane.
I guess you could say he's a little man with arthritis who needs a cane on rainy days because the rainy weather bothers his arthritis
He's trying to put a little exercise into his life!
‘This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays kings, ruins towns,
And beats high mountain down.’
Correct. That was quick. Figured it wouldn't take long. I was actually listening to the audible version of The Hobbit and heard this on the way to the office this morning.
When there is fire in me then I am still cold;
When I own your true love's face then you will not see me;
To all things I give no more than I am given;
In time I may have all things and yet I may keep nothing.
No a reflection in a mirror.
Good thinking Rick, if it's not the answer sought for, you are still right!
