I Accompany Life

I move very slowly at an imperceptible rate, although I take my time, I am never late. I accompany life, and survive past demise, I am viewed with esteem in many women’s eyes.
What am I?

I am your hair.

Wingless I Fly

I love to dance and twist and prance, I shake my tail, as away I sail, wingless I fly into the sky. What am I?

A Kite.

Drive Me In!

I know what my job is,
The point has been made.
You say I have a big head,
And you’re right, I’m afraid.
Put me in my place,
And then leave me alone.
What I need most,
Is someone to drive me home.

A Nail!

Move by Request

I have two rings. I move by request.
If the mixture is not right, I just sit at rest.
What am I?

I am a Piston.

Squash Sized

About the size of a squash,
He robs the whole village.

A rat.

Eight Spears

Holding two swords and eight spears
Dressed in a cow-leather tunic,
He peeks through a hole in the door.

A crab.

Legs But Walk Not

I have legs but walk not, a strong back but work not, two good arms but reach not, a seat but sit and tarry not. What am I?

An Armchair.

Space, Enter, and Keys

I have keys that open no locks,
I have space, but there is no room,
You can enter, but you can’t go in.
What am I?

A computer keyboard, or typewriter.

Spit ‘Em Out!

It has rib bones and back bones.
It swallows human beings whole, then spits them out alive.

A house.

Long Neck and 100 Legs

I have a hundred legs, But cannot stand.
I have a long neck, But no head.
I cannot see, and I’m neat and tidy, As can be.
What am I?

I am a broom.

Red and Blue Socks

I have 10 red socks and 10 blue socks in a drawer. How many socks must I take out to ensure that I have at least one matching pair? One how many to ensure I have at least a pair of red and a pair of blue?

Three for one pair, and twelve to ensure one pair of each color.

White and Empty

I don’t have eyes,
But once I did see.
Once I had thoughts,
But now I’m white and empty.
What am I?

I am a Skull.

Weep for my Death

I come out of the earth, I am sold in the market. He who buys me cuts my tail, takes off my suit of silk, and weeps beside me when I am dead. What am I?

I am an Onion.

Only One Right Place

I come in different shapes and sizes. Part of me are curves, others are straight. You can put me anywhere you like, but there is only one right place for me.
What am I?

A Jigsaw Puzzle Piece.

From There to Here

I can travel from there to here by disappearing,
and here to there by reappearing.

Slash, Dash, and Pound

I can slash but I have no knife, I can dash but I have no legs, I can pound but I have no hammer, I can star but I have no stage. What am I?

I can be written,
I can be spoken,
I can be exposed,
I can be broken,What am I?


Short and Hot

I can be short and sometimes hot.
When displayed, I rarely impress.

I am your temper.

Any Color You Imagine

I can be any color you can imagine.
You see me in everyday life.
I have been around for many, many years,
Look around, you can probably see some of me right now.What am I?


Stone to Fruit

I buried a stone in the ground, and it grew and produced fruit. How is this possible?

The seed of a cherry is called a stone.
