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...

While walking down the street I met a man. He tipped his hat and drew his cane and in this riddle I told his name. What is the man's name?

And the answer is...


Andrew (and drew).  Hooray for Angelo for getting very close, and, also to Carolyn for agreeing with Angelo.  I must say, however, that Andrew is also the middle name of Tippy Hat Mc Cane, so Darcy was also right.

Thanks for playing!  Come back next Friday for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles.

And, if read aloud, it synchs up with the Wizard of Oz.
