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






Each Friday, Mr. Punch, with my help, presents a true Victorian riddle. The first person to answer correctly--by posting in the comments--will receive public congratulations. Be on the look-out! Sometimes--not today, because, frankly, I don't feel like it--the winner will receive a fabulous prize from our online store.

So, here's this week's riddle. And, for the love of Punch, don't Google the answer. That's not cool, and most of all, it's very un-Victorian. Must be sporting, Chums, what.


Who is the greatest chicken-killer in Shakespeare?


And...the answer is...

MACBETH for he does murder most foul.  (fowl)

We had many clever answers today, especially from Darcy, Dashwood, Gene, Carolyn,   Barb and Matt, but I say that the best one came from Angelo!  Well done, Angelo!  We are all impressed.  Come back next Friday for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles!



And, remember Mr. Punch wants you to never forget that, "That's the way to do it!"  A good way to recall that is with one of our exclusive Mr. Punch products, available only in our online store.

Puck. He hates the clucks.

Joseph Crisalli said...

With good reason.

Carolyn said...

Duncan because he's always dunkin them in batter.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Clever!

April said...

Ophelia.....crazy bitch.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Ummm...true.

Gene said...

Caesar salad.

Joseph Crisalli said...

That was my joke yesterday.

Darcy said...

King Lear.
The original tittle was "Lear"s KFC"
In the first draft. Lear wanted his three daughters to run a fast food chicken restaurant for him. They refused.
Thus the line " How sharper than a chicken's beak to have a thankless child."

Barb said...

Richard III. Just a hunch.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Oh, you.

Beth Ann said...

Juliet was good with a dagger.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Also true.

Dashwood said...

Hamlet and Eggs?

Joseph Crisalli said...

Ha!

Angelo said...

I'm gonna surprise you.......ready? FRIAR LAWRENCE. Get it? Fryer.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Oh, Angelo. I'm so proud.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Darcy...that's a very good answer up there. Sorry I missed it.
