eady for some headscratchers?
Everyone loves a good riddle. They're a great way to flex your brain muscles and think about things in a way you might not have before. Or, in the case of some riddles, a great way to make you feel pretty dumb.
But the only way to eventually feel smarter is by continuing to practice thinking outside the box! With that in mind, here are 15 riddles designed to stretch your brain to its limits. (The answers are underneath each riddle, but no cheating!)
Riddle No. 1
Forward I’m heavy, backward I’m not.
What am ?
(Because “not” spelled backward is “ton.” Get it?)
Riddle No. 2
A man has a bee in his hand.
What’s in his eye?
(Because “beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder.”)
Riddle No. 3
A man wants to enter an exclusive club, but he doesn’t know the password, so he watches the bouncer to figure it out. A woman comes up and the bouncer says, “12.” The woman replies, “6.” The bouncer lets her in.
Another woman comes up and the bouncer says, “6.” The woman says “3” and the bouncer lets her in.
The man feels he’s heard enough and goes up to the door. The bouncer says “10,” and the man replies, “5.” The bouncer tells him to get lost.
What should the man have said instead?
3 — the number of letters in the word “ten.”
