Riddle Me This

1. A man spends one fifth of the money in his wallet. He then spends one fifth of what remains in the wallet. He spends $36.00 in all. Question: How much money did he have to begin with?

2. Y Y U R Y Y U B I C U R Y Y 4 M E

3.My brother, the local bus driver, was telling me that recently he was driving a bus full of people and no-one got off on the way. However, at the end of the journey, there was not a single person left on the bus. How?

4.Food Item: You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?

5. A drawer contains ten brown socks and ten black socks. Question: How many socks must you remove (in total darkness) before being sure of having a pair of brown socks?

Looking forward to seeing your answers.



  1. Oooooo I'm going to have to check back with you on these. My brain is on pause at 10:30pm. lol Now you'll have me thinking about them all night long!

    BTW - I'm tagging you for a Meme. Check my blog tomorrow morning!

  2. 1. Didn't even attempt the first one. Too much deep thought for this late in the day!

    2. Too wise you are, too wise you be; I see you are too wise for me.

    3. Did the people get off the bus on the way back and "the journey" refers to the entire round trip?

    4. Not sure if this is right, but I will guess chicken. You throw away the skin and cook the rest. Then you eat the meat and throw away the bones.

    5. Finally, I will guess 12 socks.

    Thanks for the riddles and mind-stretch. I hope I got a couple of them correct.
