Wow, sorry everyone, I've been away for a while. When I moved the server really screwed me up. I couldn't sign on for a long time, but it's great to be back.
I am ready to start riddling again!!!!

Here's a lame riddle:

I come from a living thing
Though I am no longer alive
I help bring your visions to life

Here is my favourtie one of all time.

Five hundred begins it,
five hundred ends it,
Five in the middle is seen;
First of all letters,
the first of all figures,
Take up their stations between.
Join all together,
and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.

The answer to mine is none of what has been listed so far... but I think that "book" may be the closest.

It is neither paper nor story, it is related to both, and writing is soooo close.
All of these are circling the answer.

Geez, I just came up with this one while sitting at the computer and I saw an object near by... I thought, OK, that's a riddle. I didn't think it would stump so many people.

Yes, it is a pencil, Susan!!!! YAY!
It's kinda funny because I just wrote that riddle in 2 seconds when I saw a pencil sitting next to the keyboard on the desk. I didn't even think it was a good riddle. I just thought, "Gee, I haven't posted a riddle in a while, perhaps I should." [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Most are Liers,
Most are Boneheads,
Most are Jerks,
Yet still respected.

This one is kind of funny.

Piosenniel, I have to admit that wasn't what I had in mind, but I guess it fits [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Tigerlily, you got it right. If you had said polititions that also would have been correct.

Wow, it really was lawyers! That's funny!

I was just wondering how many riddlers are still out there...??? I haven't seen many of the regulars anymore & this thread seems to be dying. That's sad, because I really enjoy it.
Are you guys still out there???

Here's a riddle...
What black and green with obsession all over?

Anyone, anyone??
Wow, I am sounding crazy now. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

OK, I know I haven't been on this thread for more than a month, but my son thought up a good riddle and wanted me to post it, so I decided to take the turn I never took when I "won".

What's loud, but doesn't make a sound?
What's bright but emits no light?
What's soft, but has no texture?

His costume is slendid, all golden and red,
And he wears a red flower on top of his head.
You can see he's the boss here,
For one and all come when they hear his call.

I don't know about yours, Tigerlily....a woman with no fasion sense?? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

ooh first time im posting a riddle..well here goes:

Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue and grey,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way.
