    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 :cool:

    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.

    Don't cheat people, it will take all the fun out of this AMAZING ONCE IN A LIFETIME COMPETITION.

    Good luck!
  2. I dont know the first two , but i know the last one......

    after one night, we have no new winners. 5 entries, but they were all wrong!

    talkbass, this is your one big chance to win the prize you have always dreamt about!

    remember all those times when you've woken up in the middle of the night craving for something that you couldn't identify?

    well this prize is it!!!!

    it's because you got it wrong the first time isn't it :(

    or if you didn't even enter, it's anger in anticipation for when you don't win because you couldn't be bothered to enter this FANTASTIC SUPER SUPER COMPETITION :mad:

    actually, I have on occasion woken up during the middle of the night and taken note of something nearby which I couldn't identify... I've generally found it quite disturbing. :meh: Ironically enough, on one occasion, that not immediately identifiable item happened to be a half bottle of Olde English 800 (Why is there Malt Liquor in my bedroom? -gasp- Why is this not my bedroom?) ...which by the way, I've always wondered if they have Olde English in England... but, I regress - I have no desire for unidentifiable items during the middle of the night or any other time. So, I was wondering if you are willing to PM the answers to anyone who is riddle solvingly challenged yet is being driven (slightly more) insane by these riddles you have posted. If you would be willing to PM the answers, I promise not to pass on the answers to anyone.
