Riddle:

Ralph is a very controlling person who totally dominates his partner, Sam. When Sam is in Ralph’s presence, Sam is never allowed to speak, eat, or drink anything without Ralph’s permission. Perhaps this is because Ralph is 6 feet six inches tall, and Sam, being less than 5 feet tall, is intimidated by Ralph’s stature. Whatever the cause, most people hearing these facts would think this situation is nearly criminal; but not Sam. In fact, there are certain times when Ralph gives him permission, that Sam speaks some very sarcastic words right to Ralph’s face, and sometimes even verbally abuses Ralph. In retaliation, Ralph once again silences Sam, deciding when and if Sam should ever be allowed to speak. Ralph, when in the presence of others with Sam, appears to put on a good front by putting his hand on Sam’s back, hoping to show his friendship and concern for Sam. Why hasn’t anyone called DCFS on behalf of poor Sam ——— and what about Sam’s right to free speech; or are things not quite what they appear to be? Just what is going on here?

Answer:

Ralph is a ventriloquist, and Sam is his dummy.

Riddle:

A man and his wife were doing missionary work near the city of Nairobi in the country of Kenya in eastern Africa. Their housing had not yet been completed, so the man, the woman, and their six year old daughter were spending a few nights in the jungle in three small pup tents. During their third night there, the woman was awakened by the call of a hyena passing by, so she got out of her tent to see if her young daughter had been frightened by the noise. As she peered into her daughter's tent she was surprised to see the dark figures of lion, a panther, and a cheetah which were curled up next to her daughter. Seeing her daughter was asleep and unharmed, the woman slowly and quietly withdrew from the tent, and simply returned to her own tent and went back to bed. How could this child's mother leave her daughter in such a dangerous situation, and simply ignore what she had just witnessed without intervening in some way? How can such emotional coldness ever be explained; or is there something here we are missing?

Answer:

The woman was surprised to see that her daughter had talked her father into allowing her to bring her three favorite stuffed animals on the trip with her (the lion, the panther, and the cheetah).

Riddle:

It's Halloween and 4 friends (Steven, James, Amy, and Ashley), that are all in high school, decide to go to a costume party. They decide they will wear matching costumes. They all use wheelchairs in their costumes. One friend is paralyzed, and the other 3 friends can walk. Steven says, "I have been paralyzed for 25 years and I need my wheelchair for mobility." James says, "I am not paralyzed, so I am just using my wheelchair for my costume." Amy says, "I have been paralyzed for 5 years. I was walking home from school and a drunk driver hit me." Ashley says, "When I was 9 years old, I fell 3 stories off the edge of my balcony and broke my C9 vertebrae." Two of the friends are telling the truth and the other two friends are lying. Which friend is paralyzed?

Answer:

Amy is paralyzed. Steven is lying because he is in high school which means he is less than 25 years old, so he couldn't have been paralyzed for 25 years. Ashley is lying because there are only 7 vertebrae in the cervical section of the spine, so she couldn't have broken her C9 vertebrae. James is telling the truth that he is not paralyzed. This means Amy must be telling the truth that she is the paralyzed friend.
