Ummm... Although I thought a few of the riddles were clever, I have to say, that I hears some before.  Which means that this stuff is not original work...

Shere did you get it from?  I didnt find it quoted or even a link to antoher site.  Isn't that plagerism?  I graded this a 5, because like I said earlier I thought some were intriguing, but not original.
