Alright folks, get cracking!


  1. By "original" do you mean "has never appeared in any other source" or do you mean "no one has posted it as a comment to enter the contest"?

  2. by original i mean "created by you", not found n the net or a book or a movie or...

  3. "I can move north and south, but never east and west. When I hold a thousand, I am just as big as when I hold a hundred. I can walk, I can ride, and I can fly, but I can't move without being pushed. I cannot attack until I am punched. What am I?"

  4. "I was led by gold, then gold supported me. Four bore my name, but two others followed them. I fight, but I have children. Many love me, but many have tried to destroy me. I see that which men cannot see, and I move where men cannot move. What am I?"

  5. I come at the beginning of everything, but I don't appear until the end of time. You can't see me in morning or afternoon, but you see me twice in evening.

  6. I can carry a tune, support a bridge, and grant you access to your desire. What am I?

  7. I fill a hole and yet I make one.
    I am of great value but I have no worth.
    I am skeletal but I have no bones.
    I alone accomplish nothing and cannot move but when used I cannot be imprisoned.
    I have teeth but cannot bite.
    I am straight but live in rings.
    What am I?

  8. When I see my foe,
    I always retreat -
    Such flight is required
    To cause my enemy's defeat.

  9. I am always facing you,
    even when you cannot see me.
    I am desert,
    to your oceans.
    We dance together,
    in shadow and light.

  10. What has head of a dragon, walks on three legs and farts blue flames on saturday mornings?

  11. I rise and fall though I am small. Through water and fire I fill men's desire. I am not a beast, but domesticated, and a staple, at least. What am I?

  12. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    (the rooster came first, and left before the check arrived)
