English Riddles

English Fun 3 March 2010 | 4 Comments

I’m in a silly mood today, so I thought I’d post a few English riddles to get you thinking…perhaps you have similar ones in your country?

Q – What has 2 hands, a face but it doesn’t have arms or legs?
A – A clock.

(Explanation – The front of the clock is called the face. The 2 arrowed lines that show the time are called hands in English.)

Q – What are the most 3 important rings in a person’s life?
A – Engagement ring, Wedding ring, and suffering.

(Explanation – Suffering has ‘ring’ at the end of it. This is a play on words. Also, note that in the United States, the man gives the woman an engagement ring when he proposes and then a wedding ring at the wedding ceremony. Men only receive a wedding ring at the wedding ceremony. Lucky girls – we get 2!)

Q – Why are baseball stadiums so cold?
A – There is a fan in every seat.

(Explanation – Fan is a word for someone who cheers on a sports team and also it is a word for an eletric device that cools down a room.)

Q – Which word in English has 11-letters and everyone pronounces it incorrectly?
A – Incorrectly!

(Explanation – I think this one speaks for itself, since we all say ‘incorrectly’ as it is said.)

Q – Which room has no doors and no windows.
A – A mushroom.
