  1. The strongest chains will not bind it
    Ditch and rampart will not slow it down
    A thousand soldiers cannot beat it
    It can knock down trees with a single push
  2. The one who made it
    Didn’t want it
    The one who bought it
    Didn’t need it
    The one who used it
    Never saw it
  3. Buckets, barrels, baskets, cans;
    What must you fill with empty hands?
  4. Every creature in the world has seen it
    But to their dying day they’ll never see
    The same one again
  5. Look in my face
    I am somebody
    Look at my back
    I am nobody
  6. A man leaves home and makes 3 left turns.
    When he returns home he is met by two men
    one of whom is wearing a mask. Who are they?
  7. We love it more than life
    We fear it more than death
    The wealthy want for it
    The poor have it in plenty
  8. The light one breaks but never falls
    His brother falls but never breaks
  9. Which four letter sport begins with a ‘T’ ?
  10. Assume there are approximately 6,000,000,000 (6 billion) people on
    Earth. What would you estimate to be the result, if you multiply
    together the number of fingers on every person’s left-hands? (For the
    purposes of this exercise, thumbs count as fingers, for five fingers
    per hand.) If you cannot estimate the number then try to guess how long
    the number would be.
  11. An archeologist proudly told that he had found four silver coins which, according to the inscription “649 B.C.”, should now be 2720 years old. The press considered him a fraud and a dreamer. Why?
  12. He got it in the woods
    And brought it home in his hand
    Because he couldn’t find it.
    The more he looked for it
    The more he felt it. When he
    finally found it he threw it away.
  13. This wondrous thing, though not
    An herb, can help comfort the weak
    And the dying. It can even be used to
    Rally the troops, or make one start
    Laughing or crying
  14. A New York city hairdresser recently said that he would rather cut the hair of three Canadians than one New Yorker. Why?
  15. This sparkling globe
    Can float on water
    And weighs no more
    Than a feather
    Yet despite its weight
    Ten giants could
    Never pick it up
  16. How could a baby fall out of a twenty-story building onto the ground and live?
  17. Whoever has it is angry
    Whoever loses it is even angrier
    Whoever wins it has it no more
  18. This engulfing thing
    Is strange indeed
    The greater it grows
    less you see
  19. It can pierce the best armor
    And make swords crumble with a rub
    Yet for all its power
    It can’t harm a club
  20. Today he is there to trip you up
    And he will torture you tomorrow
    Yet he is also there to ease the pain
    When you are lost in grief and sorrow
  21. She has tasteful friends
    And tasteless enemies
    Tears are often shed on her behalf
    Yet never has she broken a heart
  22. What goes with a wagon that
    doesn’t benefit the wagon
    but the wagon cannot move without it?
  23. Passed from father to son
    And shared between brothers
    Its importance is unquestioned
    Though it is used more by others
  24. Never resting, never still
    Moving silently, hill to hill
    It does not walk, run nor trot
    All is cool where it is not
  25. Though easy to spot
    When allowed to plume
    It is hard to see
    When held in a room
  26. Brought to the table
    Cut and served
    Never eaten
  27. Has feather
    But can’t fly
    Rests on legs
    But can’t walk
  28. This side of a cat
    Has the most hair
  29. What has keys that open no locks
    space but no room
    and you can enter but not go in
  30. I am slim and tall
    Many find me desirable and appealing
    They touch me and I give a false good feeling
    Once I shine in splendor
    But only once and then no more
    For many I am “to die for”
  31. This old one runs forever
    But never moves at all
    He has not lungs nor throat
    But still a mighty roaring call
  32. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?
  33. You are visiting an island on which two tribes of natives live. One tribe has black soles and always lies; the other tribe has white soles and always tells the truth. There are three natives standing near you. You can’t see the bottoms of their feet, and indeed you find out it is extremely rude to look at another’s soles, but you are curious so you ask the first man, “Sir, what colour are your soles?” Now he happens to understand English, but he can’t speak it, so he replies in his native tongue, “Glub Glub.” You turn to the second man and ask, “Sir, what did he say?” The second man replies, “He said he has white soles.” Now to be sure, you turn to the third and ask, “Sir, what colour soles does this second man have?” The third man replies, “Sir, he has black soles.” Now the question is, what colour are the third native’s soles?
  34. A man lives in the penthouse of an apartment building. Every morning he takes the elevator down to the lobby and leaves the building. Upon his return, however, he can only travel halfway up in the lift and has to walk the rest of the way – unless it’s raining.
  35. A police officer saw a truck driver clearly going the wrong way down a one-way street, but did not try to stop him. Why not?
  36. There was once a recluse who never left his home. The only time anyone ever visited him was when his food and supplies were delivered, but they never came inside. Then, one storm winter night when an icy gale was blowing, he had a nervous breakdown. He went upstairs, turned off all the lights and went to bed. Next morning, he had caused the deaths of several hundred people. How?
  37. You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?
  38. What can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?
  39. I never was, am always to be,
    No one ever saw me, nor ever will,
    And yet I am the confidence of all
    To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.
