...just for fun

Easy one to start with, my personal favourite:

I'm a little round man
In a red red coat
With a stone in my heart
And a stick in my throat

What am I?


No cheating through the net  beat
Person who gets it right posts the next one!

Okay my first inclination was that this man was in obvious need of medical assistance!!

I'm not sure if I'm playing this right!!   Wink

No one else is guessing.  I'll try a shot.  Is it an apple?

 Huh?

I'll go ahead and post the next riddle since I came so close.  (Actually, I feel kinda stupid--an apple doesn't have a stone, it has seeds...)

What is it:

In the grey evening
I see a long green serpent
With its tail in the dahlias.
It lies in loops across the grass
And drinks softly at the faucet.
I can hear it swallow.


And your answer doesn't count unless you tell me where I got it from!!!   Cheesy

Is a hosepipe the same as a garden hose?  If so yes.   Wink

Ah,.... now where's it from...
Aren't there any 30 something folks out there (American or Canadian)?  (Or the parents of a 30 something?)  It was from a little show made by TV Ontario many years ago...

Q

It's not a shirt
Yet it's sewed;
It's not a tree
Yet it's full of leaves;
It's not a person
Yet it speaks volumes.

Huh?

Gotta be a book!

How about this one:

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word?

Hahaha OMG i was sitting there going CRAZY thinking of the word  faint

Ok I've got one from *huge clues* a Jane Austen novel (written by an obnoxious character), so you have to guess where it's from as well  Grin

My first displays the wealth and pomp of kings,
Lords of the earth! their luxury and ease.
Another view of man, my second brings,
Behold him there, the monarch of the seas!

But ah! united, what reverse we have!
Man's boasted power and freedom, all are flown;
Lord of the earth and sea, he bends a slave,
And woman, lovely woman, reigns alone.

Thy ready wit the word will soon supply,
May its approval beam in that soft eye!

hah! finally one i know jane austen of course...

courtship get it... court and then ship and together courtship and although i didn't remember the riddle i'm pretty sure it's by that odious guy that liked Emma in the novel Emma. can't think of his name tho...

here's mine:

Taken from an Andalusian Poem, what is it:

Eyelashes thick
And a pupil
Among flowers
The secluded pool
How beautiful

How they leap
In fun and pop up
Clad
Moss green

Squabble
For places at
The pool's rim
But come winter
Plunge deep

Down and all
Stay hidden
At any time
When they are playing
Watch them flip

And peer around
For all the world
Like Christian
Soldiers with
Shouldered shields
