Mr. Punch's Puzzles: The Riddle of the Week








Once, again, Mr. Punch, with my help, is offering up a true Victorian riddle.  The first person to answer correctly--by posting in the comments--will receive public congratulations.  And, since this is his birthday week (350!), Punch is ever-so excited anyway.


So, here's this week's riddle.  We ask that you don't Google the answer.  Mr. Punch would not find that sporting at all.  Give it a shot and see what you can come up with.  Here we go... No cheating...


When you see a man scratching his head, what time is it?


UPDATE:
And, the answer is...


"Five after one."


Thanks to all who answered! Your responses are always so much fun.  Look for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles next Friday!

Time for a trip to the drugstore for lice shampoo and a tiny comb.

Why does it have to be a "tiny" comb? No--nope...let's not think about it.

With what kind of men do you guys associate?

Most of my friends can't scratch their heads without getting their fingers stuck in all the gel.

Thank you for sharing, Angelo.

This was mt grandmother's favorite joke, so I won't answer so I won't spoil it. But, I love this joke.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Thanks, Book Gurl. Your grandmother had great taste in jokes.

Ha! For some reason, I hear Groucho Marx saying that, Dashwood.

Maybe time for a new toupee adhesive?

Old toupee tape is very itchy! Funny!

Time to ask him what he's thinking about.
