Riddles for life…..
Q: What’s green and wears a mask?
A: The Lone Pickle.
A harmless joke
One of my favorites when I was a little girl.
But is it harmless really?
Why is the Lone Pickle all Alone?
Why doesn’t he say “Hi-Ho Sandwich Away!?”
And what about his Deli-cious sidekick
salty but loyal PotaTonto chips?
Q: Where did the first donuts come from?
Did they really?
I know it’s just a play on words
But now I have to Google that.
Q: Have you ever seen an elephant hide in a tree?
A: Hide pretty well, don’t they?
When I was a kid I always said “Hide pretty good.”
But it should be an adverb describing
how the elephant hides, even Word’s grammar check
underlines that with a green squiggly line.
So I’m teaching my stepson to say “hide pretty well”
Before he tells that joke to my mother-in-law.
