good variation on the one mum told when I was little...2legs sat on 3 legs eating 1 leg(chicken drumstick).4legs(dog) stole 1 leg,2legs hit 4 legs with 3 legs. What's going on. It took us ages to figure it out.

Definately one of my favorites! The hint was very good; it helped a lot but still took thought.

Nice one 'cept, didn't like the part when the farmer hit the cow with the stool. But it is just a teaser, right??

microniums version was the one I remember from my Childcraft books. I read that one about 40 years ago, and loved it.
Thanks for the memories.......

How about a guy (2) in a bar sitting on a stool(3) next to another guy wearing crutches (4).
One of the crutches slips (1) and the irate guy (2) hits the other guy with crutches (4) with the stool (3).
Doesn't this meet the criteria?
Alternative answer from a bar hopper!

I never would have gotten it, even looking at the hint. and I spent my summers as a youth on a farm
packerfan
Jul 22, 2006

Well, that was about 30 seconds of thought that I will never get back. Either I am terrible at these type of teasers or it was a waste of web space. Thanks for sharing it though. Maybe it was just me.

I liked this. I was gonna LIE and say I got it, because I think that if I had been focusing, I would have gotten it! But, no cigar, no banana, Yes! I got no, banana, I got no, banana, today!!! Thanks, good one!

Raised on a farm. Even looked at the hint, still no idea But it made me think , and that is always good

Thinking and living are bound together:We think in order to know how to live and we learn what is true through living

This still IS very imaginative and quite fun to work out. I have heard different versions with different animals, but it does make you think...

Nice variation on a VERY old riddle:

Two legs sat upon three legs,
With one leg in his lap;
In comes four legs,
Runs away with one leg;
Up jumps two legs,
Catches up three legs,
Throws it after four legs,
And makes him bring back one leg.

One leg is a leg of mutton, two legs a man, three legs a stool, four legs a dog, and yes I do have sympathy for the poor hungry dog.

Jul 26, 2006

This one was too simple for me because at one time I was that two legged using a three legged to strike the four legged who had kicked the three legged out from under the two legged along with the bucket which had taken an arm and a leg to produce. My little hands were smaller than the job I was trying to master. Cute teaser tho.
