Riddle Me This? Mysteries of the Universe

1. When you get nits, does one or two jump onto your head? Or a pregnant one? If it's just one, how do you end up with eggs? (if this is common knowledge, I really don't know so tell me - I may be more stupid than you realise)

2.Is there a language where Q stand alone? If it always has to be Qu, then why doesn't Q just make the Qu sound by itself?

3.How does the song 'Dem Bones' end up talking about 'Hear the word of the Lord'? Is the skeleton hearing it? Or is the skeleton walking around the work of God? Or was it just written when everyone chucked a bit of religion into every song?

4. Why don't more people rob banks in ambulances?

5. How can you get too scared to do something you worked up the courage to do the year before?

6.Why does your phone lose internet connection whenever your car breaks down?

7.Why does the cold snap suddenly end whenever you accidently leave food in the boot of your car?

8. Stealing from They Might Be Giants, but who put the alphabet in Alphabetical Order?

9. Why do kids tattoos come off every time with olive oil until the day you put them on her face?

10. Can you send your kid to school with tattoos on their face? Will you or the kid get in trouble?

Linking up with Things I (don't) know


  1. I love your Riddle Me This posts - they always make me think because 99.9% of the time I haven't thought about it and even if I had, I still don't know the answer !!!
    Have a good one !
    Me xox

  2. Funny! That face tattoo thing is so true. My son had one for 4 weeks, I had to attack him with a flannel in the shower when he wasn't expecting it, because he just wouldn't let me get it off.

  3. Oh tattoos! Argh! I only let them put them on their bellies now. Nits... do they just all reproduce perhaps. One great part of living in Tassie is that your groceries are hardly ever (year round) in danger of spoiling in your car. #teamIBOT

  4. Nits, why o why do they even exist! And just learnt something new, kids tattoos come off with olive oil! Did not know that one....

  5. LOL. I would just like you to know that I scratched my head the whole way through this post, just at the mere suggestion of nits! #teamIBOT

  6. I really hope any would-be thieves do not read this post. An ambulance robbery is sheer, Hollywood genius.

  7. Who put the bop in the bop she bop she bop? I love your riddle posts too. Always lots of food for thought.

  8. Ha ha that is funny about tattoos, the cold weather not so much. As for nits, I have no idea, itch itch! Off to get an ambo and rob a bank!

  9. Ooh I can easily see how you could lose the confidence to do something you worked up the courage to do a year earlier. The mind is a powerful thing and can talk you in or out of anything. The dem bones one is an interesting one. I'd love to hear the history on that.

  10. I don't have any answers for you I'm afraid... I don't even understand #4?

  11. Mr 5 has gotten nits for the second time, they are spreading like wildfire through his daycare at the moment. I wish the little buggers didn't exist!

  12. #9 made me giggle. I'm assuming you're asking that one "for a friend", right?

  13. Hmmm I was sure I commented on this the other day??
    Anyway I love and hate these posts by you as they make me laugh and confused all at the same time!!
