1)What is it that you can keep after giving it to someone else?
2)What is round as a dishpan, deep as a tub, and still the oceans couldn't fill it up?
3)Scarcely was the father in this world when the son could be found sitting on the roof.
4)What goes up the chimney down, but can't go down the chimney up?
5)When one does not know what it is, then it is something; but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing.

My mind is a sieve with the holes getting bigger every day.

I can't believe no one said herpes for #1!


Silly Neal.... thats what you give.... others don't :)

1)What is it that you can keep after giving it to someone else? Any number of STD's, Your word, I like the hand one.....
2)What is round as a dishpan, deep as a tub, and still the oceans couldn't fill it up? My dogs stomach.
3)Scarcely was the father in this world when the son could be found sitting on the roof.
4)What goes up the chimney down, but can't go down the chimney up? Umbrella makes sense... yet not.... why would you put an umbrella in the chimney? (thats the real riddle)
5)When one does not know what it is, then it is something; but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing.

1. herpes?
2. a tube without a bottom?
3. Was the father an astronaut who's son sat on the roof while he was in space?
4. a burning feather pillow?
5. a question?

these are just my guesses...

#5 Is that supposed to be a question or when something is nothing then nothing is something?

3)Scarcely was the father in this world when the son could be found sitting on the roof.

3)Let the father be the light and light creates a shadow, so the son is the shadow. So when the shadow is sitting on the roof, light scarcely exists where the shadow is.
