Tit for Tat I see!

Find a word for a cooking utensil, then add a letter to find a word that means "bridge".

Find a word that means "to move fast" then add a letter to find a Viking (also Tolkienesque) written character.

Give me all 4 words.

Thats strange because I picked that riddle before realizing that there was an obvious Tolkien refference, that I figured you would pick up on quickly.

well.........no one has posted a new riddle.........so i post one, well thinking problem, not riddle!!!

and this time its NOT a play on words.........so there....:P


Jack weighs 100 pounds. He needs to cross a rope bridge that can only hold 120 pounds. Jack is carrying three bowling balls, weighing 10 pounds apiece (30 pounds total). The bridge is too long for him to roll or throw a ball across and the bridge will explode the second Jack crosses.

How can Jack cross the bridge with all of his balls?

You and your buddy are asked to join a giant orgy of 50 of the hottest women you've ever seen in your life, but between the two of you, only one has a condom. You cannot go alone, because your friend is the ride, and you have only enough time to get there (no stopping at stores to buy more, or time to make a 'makeshift condom'). What do you do?

Does this riddle have anything to do with Jack being a Eunich?


Seriously though, I think that the answer is to JUGGLE the balls, though I really don't think that this would work in reality.

Thats easy! Just take turns and rinse out and reuse the condom after each turn. Thats what I do with them anyway!
