|A cad, a bounder and a fiend!|
When The Wife and I were on our travels the other week we naturally bought some books. Mine was one discussing The Hobbit but her's was a study of Early English riddles. My intention (and this shows how behind I got with the blog) was to post a couple of riddles each day this week. But the problem is that they are seriously dull: they make "What have I got in my pockets?" look like Dorothy Parker.
Q. What is it that never was nor never shall be?
A. Never mouse made her nest in a cat's ear.
Q. Why drive men dogs out of the church?
A. Because they come not up and offer and also because they shit on the dead.
Q. Why come the dogs so often to the church?
A. Because when they see the altars covered they think their masters go thither to dinner.
Q. Why doth a dog turn him thrice about ere he lieth him down?
A. Because he knoweth not his bed's head from the feet
Q. What beast is it that hath her tail between her eyes?Personally I prefer
A. It is a cat when she licketh her arse.
Q. What's red and doesn't fit in a fridge
A. A fire-engine.
