I don't know about Afgncaap5's riddle but Garius' one is easy. Actually a smiliar riddle is in Zork Zero. The answer is 'e'.

I tell you, I spent loooong time figuring that out and finally I used the walkthrough ::) ( :-[).

You're right, Basse. :-D

And wristwatch isn't the only thing we can't say. We can't go off half-cocked. In fact, we can't cock a gun at all. And, as everyone knows, a male chicken is a cock, right? Now let's see, what if my dog was a cocker spaniel? What if I went to Chicago and visited the John Hancock tower?

Now, if I was at a glacier, could I look at the meltwaters, or would I have to look at the melt-waters?

Or, what if I was from eastern Africa and spoke Cushitic? That's C-u-s-h-i-t-i-c.

(Am I having fun with this, or what?  ;D ;D)

(Don't worry, DataAngel, I don't mind at all - it's just fun to play with it.)

You sound pretty cock-sure, Nemesis. Hope it doesn't result result in a cock-up. Was the last word you typed "bitch" (i.e. a female dog)?

Go ahead and give us your riddle.  ;D

Um, DataAngel - it should be "female dog" not "pregnant dog". Any female dog is a b-itch, not just pregnant ones.  ;)

And I guess that isn't what your last word was, Nemesis.

Here's a riddle, why does this post go from a thought provoking discussion, to flaws in an over-sensitive filter?

Sorry, I've been away for a while. I'm not so good at riddles but I'll try.

I might be clean, I might be dirty
But you need me, I will become a part of you
And if you keep removing the green, I will dissappear

Hey no fair! No riddles when I'm not here! Oh well, I wouldn't have gotten it anyway.

To keep the flow going I'll just post my next riddle, but tell me if I didn't get it right, Basse, so that we can keep guessing.

Okay, this is an easy one and it doesn't even rhyme, but I just wanna see if it'll stump anyone.

Why is a supermarket like the alphabet?
