Maybe it's time to retire this thread for now.  After all, you all seem to have backed into your shells and this just doesn't chime with the fun anymore.

    Carry on the fun, new members such as myself would like to play.


1. Bloodless and boneless
It travels about.
Yet it never leaves home.

2. You hear it speak,
For it has a hard tongue.
But it cannot breathe,
For it has not a lung.

    My answer for #1 is GLOVES and for #2 is...maybe SPEAKER

Well I'll keep it up but your answers are wrong.  I gave some clues in the quoted comment.

That's right.

1. You seek it out
When your hunger's ripe
It sits on four legs
And smokes a pipe.

2. Has feathers
But can't fly
Rests on legs
But can't walk.

3. When they are caught,
They are thrown away.
When they escape,
You itch all day.

Ah, I was thinking 'snail' for that last one, but I didn't think snails were bloodless.

All three were correct.

1. He stands beside the road in a
Purple cap and tattered green cloak
Those who touch him, curse him.

2. All around the house,
With his Lady he dances.
Yet he always works,
And never romances.

3. All across the countryside,
To front doors he travels.
But you never invite him in.

Don't give up on the first one, I know it's a thorn in the side but smell the flowers.

Well if you can't think of the first one, think of pleasant Sounds you Like and Whistle.

While, I'm waiting for that, here's another riddle:

Moving at your current speed, how long will it take you to go completely around the sun?

The answer to 1 was:

Spoiler: ShowHide
Thistle


1. Axes and swords will not help you through.
Yet it and a little push will do.
Some in the road would have fought and soon died.
Were it not close at hand, to let them inside.

2. Pounds all day,
Beats all night,
Never rests.

3. This old one runs forever,
But never moves at all.
He has not lungs, nor throat,
Still a mighty roaring call.

Yes, your answer to the other riddle was correct.

1 and 3 are correct, 2 was technically correct but it wouldn't open the chest in the game.  Think more water based things.

#2 was "Surf" but that's one of those things that's a little too hard to figure out with the amount of info I gave.

1. (4 letter word)
You can count on them, though
Some would rather curse them.
You can speak dear to them,
Though we all know 'tis just in vain.

2. (4 letter word)
They have not lips nor tongues,
Yet lead them green to the pit,
And as they die you will hear,
Them sputter, hiss and spit.

3. (10 letter word)
There is a shoemaker in the dell.
Makes his shoes with steel and nail.
Although his goods last right well,
Folks need two pair, without fail.
