Question

Guest

Ok boys and girls, for all of you still up and running, here's a light one for good night

I look forward to the answer in the morning ^_^

In a cave they make me dwell

And strong men learn to keep me well

Though I am source of much delight

They often frown when I take flight

I do say this bit in jest, I feel I serve a mad man best

tongue?

:thumbsup:

Espianne welcome to the group! YOU'VE GOT IT! Why do you say probably not? It works in every clue - let me know if something stumps you. In not, put your explanation in a spoiler for those who are done thinking.

The rest of you, this is an end of day riddle, light and easy. Figure it out.

yeah it's pretty. but requires previous specific rather then common knowledge so not simple. and "strong men"? "mad man"? doesn't work.

most miners were STRONG men since they had to hit the rock with the pick axes.

yeah but why do they "serve a mad man best", even if I say so in jest :D

I don't understand what the strong men have to do with the answer? Please clarify? Funny, I always subconsciously choose one part of your riddles to run wild with, as my starting point for finding my answers. It's always the part I should NOT be starting with. I should learn to watch out for that.

well, why can't they?

-_-

how could you keep light? and why would you need to be strong to do it? You tell me.

and the rest of the riddle - serves mad man best? How do you figure that?

so nope.

Memory or intelligence?

nice. I see where you'd get it. but "often grown" as in not always, when it takes flight? would be taking it lightly.

something else fits better.

So as I have to go,

And you really dont need clues on this one (trust me) plus we already had the correct answer,

The solution is below for all who want it

A Tongue

In a cave they make me dwell MOUTH

And strong men learn to keep me well CONTROL WHAT THEY SAY AND WHEN

Though I am source of much delight FOOD AND DRINK

They often frown when I take flight BABBLE; RUN LOOSE; ALL TONGUE RELATED METAPHORES

I do say this bit in jest, I feel I serve a mad man best[/spoiler THINK OF A MAD MAN, WHAT DOES HE DO? HE RAVES, LETS HIS TONGUE DO WHAT IT WANTS]

And you have the clue in the title of the post that means more then I'm off to bed
