The game's very simple. You just have to post a riddle, and the person who posts next should try answering it, and should post their own riddle.

Example:
Why do birds fly South in winter?

something easy for the googl'ophiles:

Two brothers we are,
Great burdens we bear,
By which we are bitterly pressed;
The truth is to say
We are full all the day
And empty when we go to rest.

What are we?

Are they a pair of shoes?

Two brothers - a pair
Great burdens we bear - our weight
By which we are bitterly pressed - pressed by our weight?
...
We are full all the day - when our feet are in them
Empty when we go to rest - when we remove them

So are they shoes?

A human for Mr. Lacrimosa's riddle (old riddle and a well known one btw! Absolutely love this one, because of the explanation) : As a child/baby 4 legs (crawling), 2 as an adult (2 legs) and as an old person 3 (walking with a cane + 2 legs).

Nice one!

Ok. I've got one:

The paragraph below is very unusual. How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about it?

"Gatsby was walking back from a visit down in Branton Hill's manufacturing district on a Saturday night. A busy day's traffic had had its noisy run; and with not many folks in sight, His Honour got along without having to stop to grasp a hand, or talk; for a mayor out of City Hall is a shining mark for any politician. And so, coming to Broadway, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Broadway's night shopping crowds. Gatsby , walking towards that group, saw a young girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration ... "

The most common letter in the English alphabet, "e" does not appear anywhere in the paragraph.
