1, 5, 3, and 6 bring out the best in food.

1, 8, and 9 are a form of offspring.

nice riddle! yay, first comment! I guess that's because I am the only person on the computer at this hour Don't you think the Santa one can break some little kids hearts? Still a good teaser though!!!!
Jun 03, 2010

Good one; thanks. As for breaking little kids hearts ... well ... my kids refused to give up their Santa 'belief' until they left home ... and even now, if we visit them on Christmas Eve. they insist on continuing the reality!! However, maybe this would not be best as TOTD for Christmas!

Actually I think you should let kids know the truth about Saint Nicholas--that he's not magical, he's dead, and you give them their presents--early. That way they don't think "WHAT?! I WENT MY WHOLE CHILDHOOD BELIEVING A LIE?! WHAT ELSE DID THEY NOT TELL ME?!!!!"

I agree with you, Trickster. If your caution was relating to my comment, ket me assure you that my children were aware from an early age that "Father Christmas" was really Dad, and that our home was free (almost!) from the commercial pollution of the season. "F.C." placed, under the tree, a board game to "all the children" to be played by "all the family".

Two years ago, our eldest son and his wife were with us on Christmas Eve and delivered a yummy stocking to my wife and me, while we slept.

It is possible for families to enjoy the best of both worlds - faith and fun, but wisdom is required.

Haha, I always thought "Father Christmas" just meant winter.

Not in the Antipodes!

c'mon people! This is a family website!

Other than that, it's good but very hard!

This is a family site and when they see the santa thing their gonna be sad!!! Just saying...

Almost good. Just some correction: saliva do not spread germs, in fact it has antibacterial compunds. Even if it's full of germs it still can't spread germs all by itself, to say something is spreading something, then that something must be alive or moving. And the son thing, isn't a form of offspring. The word child or baby is more appropriate because a 40 year old man is still a son to his living father. And please take note of your grammar, makes things more confusing that it already is. 2/5 stars, lacks creativity.

You have obviously never caught mono, or "the kissing disease"...

It is a horrid nonfatal sickness that feels like it's fatal, that you get from other people's saliva.
Jun 16, 2010

Therefore, the person is the one who spreads the germs. If a person spits with his saliva full of germs, he is the one spreading the bacteria/virus.

When I did this, I thought the first word was boy, the next was breath, and it all went downhill from there. Sorry kids! 1-5-9-6-2 is not real! Or so we think...
Jul 31, 2010

I don't know about in your country, but people here in America generally don't deliberately spit at people in order to make people sick. If it is both accidental and beyond our control, then it is not the person's fault. It is therefore the spit's fault. It's not like a gun.

And, Santa was real at some point in history...just not magical, and not immortal, as he's long been dead now.
Aug 03, 2010

Hmm.... I see someone has something against this teaser... Well let me tell you this: A son IS a type of offspring. It doesn't matter how OLD it is.
Also, saliva CAN spread germs. If you spit into somebody's hands while you're sick they'll probably be sick sooner or later. It's not the person's fault, it's not like he told the germs to go attack the other person...
