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...


Where are kings usually crowned?


And, the answer is...

On his head.

Kudos to all for not actually answering this very obvious riddle.  I continue to be amused by your collective cleverness.  Come back next Friday for another of "Mr. Punch's Puzzles."  Maybe it'll be more difficult.  Maybe not.










Mr. Punch wants you to always know “the way to do it,” so why not check out our “That’s the way to do it!” products which are available only at our online store.

Almost never in sweat pants.

But sometimes on Bourbon Street if they're the VooDoo king.

King Crabs are crowned in a bad mood.
