Riddle: The characters in this riddle are a bottle of shining cream that would turn to metal, a president of the chess club, a bald guy with a beard, and a pistol with one bullet left. Each character would be used, but the president will die. How is that so?
Answer: The bald guy spreads the cream on his beard, and the president aims his gun at the guy. He shoots and then the bullet deflects off of the beard and shoots elsewhere. The president died of sheer amazement.
