hi mates. in honour of the britain thread, i will be sending a parcel filled with cross cultural english fun and joy to three people who answer my riddles.... the contest will be open for four days, and on saturday i shall pick 3 names out of my cyber hat pm me your answers... 1. One afternoon, a retired air force pilot and his family were driving through Texas on a vacation. They pass a road sign. One of the children remarks on the fact that the sign is named after a newspaper comic. After about five minutes, they pass another sign, which reads, "Golf Road". As soon as they pass it, the man turns to his wife and says he knows what the next sign will say, and that he'll bet her twenty dollars that he's right. She agrees, and they drive on. After passing the next road sign, the wife finds that her husband is right, and hands him twenty dollars. What did the last sign say and how did the man know? 2. An Arab sheikh is old and must will his fortune to one of his two sons. He makes a proposition. His two sons will ride their camels in a race, and whichever camel crosses the finish line last will win the fortune for its owner. During the race, the two brothers wander aimlessly for days, neither willing to cross the finish line. In desperation, they ask a wise man for advice. He tells them something; then the brothers leap onto the camels and charge toward the finish line. What did the wise man say? Explain your answer 3. Who killed one-fourth of mankind? Explain your answer. Depending on how many people get them right, i might accept 2 out of 3 correct answers.
