Okay folks, it time to share!

Anything goes: Jokes, anecdotes, riddles, thoughts, funny quotes, thoughtful quotes (any quotes!), anything!

Want to share something deep, funny or just plain curious, here you can.

Okay, to start the ball rolling, I'll pose this one question:

There's a cabin in the middle of the woods. There are no tracks leading to or from it and its the middle of spring. Inside the cabin are several people. They are all frozen to death.

Question: Using these facts, determine how these people died.

Is it rain? A cabin in the woods, springtime, it rains, would wash away all tracks that might have been there. And if there's only fire... wouldn't the wood get wet? This wasn't my response, but rather, me posing the question to my surrogate brother, who suggested it. Wink Wouldn't want to take his credit... that and he's breathing over my shoulder, so I can't really do anything but. tongue

Nope, they all died at the same time in the same instant and it was not more than two hours before hand. No, there was no rain, sorry.

Fine, seeing as nobody can figure it out.

Its the cabin of a plane. They all froze in the atmosphere when the plane failed and they crashed in the middle of the woods.

There.

LOL, don't worry, most people don't get that one.

Anyway, I've got a joke for you.

Just a shortie, but a goodie.

Here it is:

Q: Why do men like love at first sight?

A: It saves them a lot of time.

I've got a really bad joke...

Two men walk into a bar.
The third one ducked.

And here's a riddle for your clever minds:

As I was going to St. Ives
I met a man with Seven Wives
Each wife had Seven Sacks
Each sack had Seven Cats
Each cat had Seven Kits
Kits, Cats, Sacks, and Wives,
How many were going to St. Ives?

Purely mathematically... I would say that it adds up to 2753. Including yourself and the man.

Though, if it were that easy, I hardly think this would be called a riddle.

Is the answer 1, perhaps?

It never states anywhere in the riddle that the man and his seven wives were going to St Ives. Just that you met them along the way. I think....

*blink* I got it? woah.... kewlies!!

Okay... here's one from a while back:

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills
and empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

Very very close, but not the exact word I'm looking for.

Here's one for you all;

A cowboy in the Old West rides into a town on Thursday. He stays for three days and never leaves town. At the end of the third day, he rides out again on Thursday.

How is this possible?

The horse is most definitely named Thursday because it says that the cowboy rides in on Thursday...

Now I have one...

Voiceless it cries
Wingless flutters
Toothless bites
Mouthless mutters

Can you get this one?

Yes. Smile

How about this one...


A black dog stands in the intersection of a town painted all black. Because of a recent storm which has passed, none of the lights in town are working. A car with two broken headlights is racing towards the intersection, but at the last minute, the driver sees the dog and turns to miss it.

How did the driver see the dog?

It doesn't seem to say that its night time.

If its in fact day, then the driver could see the dog just fine.

Is that it?

These all seem too easy for you all, but let's try one more:

Suzy is a devoted nature lover who lives in the woods and is very devoted to the land. But every once in a while, she walks through the woods and finds her favorite tree and then cuts it down. The tree is then dragged back to her home for a short time, then Suzy chops it up and burns it.

Why would she do that?
