I know that everyone's doing it, but here's my cute little collection of riddles. I have some rules, though.
1. Please don't submit a comment if you know the answer.
2. I will tell you if you are right in your comment.
3. If you haven't seen them before and are having trouble, don't scroll down to comments! It's more fun doing it yourslef...:D

1. You're in this race, right? You're running, and you see someone up ahead! They are coming second. You boost ahead, and overtake them! Yaaaay! What position are you in now? 2. It's still the race, you're still going. But that doesn't necessarily mean you are in the same position as last time. Now, you overtake the person who is coming last. What position are you in now? 3. The race is over so you decide to go home. But first, you must go buy some sunglasses. You are at the pharmacy, and you see a mute man (that means he cannot speak, for those who don't know) queuing up. He needs to buy a toothbrush, so he mimes out brushing his teeth. He successfully buys a toothbrush. But YOU are blind, and you need sunglasses! How do you act this out? 4. You look great in the sunglasses, so you go to a cafe to show them to your friend. You and your friend order a pie to share. You are about to cut it when your friend says, \"Can you give me the biggest half?\" You say, \"Yeah., sure, but, grammatically speaking, you would say the biggER half.\" Your friend shakes their head. \"No way! It's biggest! That's the correct spelling.\" Which one of you is right? 5. You both apologise, then go back to your house to play some tennis on your backyard tennis court (yeah, you're super rich, too). Unfortunately, being blind, you hit it into a deep, deep hole in the court. It's your only ball, so you must get it out! The court is concrete, so you can't dig. And the hole is too narrow to get a hand through. What will make it come out unpunctured and clean? 6. Your friend isn't great at tennis either, so he nearly hits it onto the roof. \"Hey!\" he says. \"That reminds me of a riddle. A rooster has laid an egg on the very top of the barn roof. The roof is slanted, so it could fall down either way. If this farm was in America, in winter, which way is the egg likely to fall?\" 7. You peer over your fence, and see that a circus has been set up in the empty lot, but there are no performers. They are all gathered around an old oak tree, and are having a competition. They want to see who will get the apple at the top first. Will it be the trapeze artist (agile), the strongman (strong), the ringmaster (intelligent), or the clown (invulnerable due to puffy clothes)? 8. Once you figure this out, you and your friend walk into your round house to find your mother screaming. Her necklace has been stolen! At the time, the butler was washing the brown clothes, the maid was sweeping the corners and the gardener was watering the orchids that were planted yesterday. Who must have taken it?

Um... okay I'm going to guess, but I prob. won't be right... for #1) 2nd place #2) 1st place #5) If the court is concrete how can there be a hole in it? and #8) The Gardener because if you planted the flowers yesterday, they shouldnt't need watered today. How'd I do? Lol

One and Two are correct, great work! My answer to number 5 is that I am stupid, and it is irrelevant that the court is concrete, I'm just dumb. Let's say that the court is impenetrable, okay? There is a solution. And that's not the answer to number 8. I guess it's not necessary to water new plants, but it's not too suspicious. Good job!

The answer to number 8 is obviously the Maid. If they live in a round house, she needn't sweep the corners because there aren't any. ;)

Yep! I'm thinking that these questions are either too easy, or Booksie is too smart for my feeble cognitive developement system. Great thinking!

Ah, 2 makes my head hurt. If you're behind the person who's coming last, then doesn't that make you the last person? >.< I'm going to guess, for 2) you're last. 3) you don't have to act it out, you're blind not mute. 6) Roosters.....don't...lay eggs XD

The answer for the first question can be guessed. coz question 2's '2' is right next to the question mark from question 1 and so you have the answer.

2.last
3.You're blind you dont need sunglasses
4.You are blind so you cant see which one is the biggest or biggER half
5.You didnt play tennis because your blind
6.Roosters dont lay eggs
7.Oak trees dont have apples on them
8.The clown because the needed to use the necklace as a belt to unpuff his clothes

About Question 1; Oops. Sorry! You're correct.
About Question 2; Correct!
About Question 3; Sorry, this is wrong. Some blind people need sunglasses as their eyes can be sun-damaged. Try again!
About Question 4; Sorrry, but this is wrong too. Let's say you can see in this question.
About Question 5; Sorry, but let's say you can play tennis.
About Question 6; Correct! Good job.
About Question 7; Correct! Good Job!
About Question 8; What? I don't get it.

hmmm....
1. 2nd place
2. Second last
3. You aren't mute, so you ask for the sunglasses
4. Technically, if it's a half, both sides are equal... and in the question after that, you said "we" both apologise.
5. Your pour water inside the hole, and the ball will rise up?
6. Neither, because a rooster doesn't lay eggs
7. Oak trees don't have apples on them?
8. The maid :)

Remind me to show you a riddle at school. It'll get EVERYBODY frustrated beyond imagination! i got pretty frustrated myself!! Interesting riddles!! Loved 'em!

Hi,
Yes, if you were blind, you could just say that you wanted the sunglasses!
Thanks for commenting!
