In each of these puzzles, there are two double blanks.
Fill in the blanks with the same pair of letters to complete an English
word. For example, use the letter-pair ac in b__ckp__k to make the word backpack.








1. v _ _ lat _ _ n



2. h _ _ dw _ _ e



3. _ _ rses _ _ e




4. a _ _ a _ _ a




5. s _ _ tim _ _ t

I have a riddle for you.

1. The owner of the pet shop
guaranteed that the Guatemalan parrot repeated every word it
heard. The customer found that the parrot wouldn't repeat a single
word that he said. Nevertheless, what the pet shop owner said
was true. How could this be?

2. What is black when you buy
it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

3. Which side of a cow has
the most hair?

4. An island and the letter
"t" have something in common. What is it?

5. What can you hold without
it ever using your arms or hands?

HAHAHAHAHA.... Oh holy cow.....this is a slap on my face because I'm addicted to the feeling of freedom when riding and actually love to hear the click-clack-click-clack sound of horsehoe against pavement when I lead Ringo out or back to his stall. Thanks...

Hi Tags,

Okay here we go.... first, I need to adjust my mind-set and think like I’m a 5th Grader, thinking in a manner less complex and outside of the box. :-D

Will try to solve them in a sequence where it seem to make sense.

2. It is summer, too hot to cook inside so I grill on the deck a lot. I think this is --- Charcoal.

5. When I’m fascinated with something... works of art for instance, or a newborn baby peacefully asleep on her bassinet, I hold or fix my gaze at it. If I’m totally shock or surprise... I gasp, suck air, cup my mouth with my hands, and hold my breath ‘til I’m almost blue in the face. >>>> I’m turn between gaze and breath but I’ll go with breath because when I swim under water, I definitely hold my breath without using my "arms or hands". :-D

4. Ah huh!!!! This is a trick question and I think thanks to the thought process put to solve # 5. The answer is ---- both in the middle of water. Like: What do you see in the middle of the sea? ;) :-D

And with that…it sort of make solving 3 and 1 easy:

3. I would have to say, the.... outside because if you peel off the skin the underside of course is hairless.

1. Hahaha only one reason… since the shop owner is speaking in past tense… “parrot repeated every word it heard” instead of present or future tense, the poor parrot must have gone deaf!!!!

Hope I'm not too far off. :oops:

Tags, let me try.


1. Some months have 30 days,some months have 31 days. How many months have 28 days? = 1 month, Feb.

2. If a doctor gives you 3 pills and tells you to take one pill every half hour, How long would
it be before all the pills had been taken? = 1 hour

3. I went to bed at 8 o'clock in the evening and wound up my clock to and set the alarm
to sound at 9 o'clock in the morning. How many hours sleep would i get before being
awoken by the alarm? = 1 hour. Because I used a wind up clock that didn't recognise the AM and the PM.

4. Divide 30 by half and then add ten. What do you get? = 70. My formula, divide 30 by .05 (half) equals 60, then add 10 which makes 70 he he.

5. A farmer had 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many live sheep were left? = 9

6. If you had only one match and entered a COLD and DARK room, where there was an
oil heater, an oil lamp and a candle, which would you light first? = the match, as it is the first one you light among other things. he he

7. A man builds a house with four sides of rectangular construction, each side having
southern exposure. A big bear comes along. What color is the bear? = white, most if not all bears are white. Am I right, ngeeee.

8. Take 2 apples from 3 apples. What do you have? = nothing. Because I don't have apples with me. Ngekkkk.

9. How many animals of each species did Moses take with him in the ark? = This one seems easy, I hope. The answer is nothing because it was Noah's ark not Moses'.

10. If you drove a bus witj 43 people on board from Chicago and stopped at Pittsburgh
to pick up 7 more people and drop off 5 passengers and at Cleveland to drop off 8
passengers and pick up 4 more and eventually arrive at the Philadelphia 20 hours
later, What's the name of the driver? = Insomada because I'm the driver of the bus.


Piniga mo naman ng husto ang utak ko. But this is a good mind game.
