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.
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...
Why have chickens no fear of a future state?
And the answer is:
Because they have their next world (necks twirled) in this.
Yes, that's right. It's a barnyard slaughter joke. Hooray! Thanks to all of you who answered. I think we've officially all given up trying to come up with the "right" answer. All the better! Your responses are far more amusing!
Come back next Friday for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles.
