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...


What is broken when you name it?


And, the answer is...

SILENCE.

Excellent answers from everyone today.  Special mention to Matt, Darcy, and Dashwood.  Well done!  Come back next week for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles!

A teenager's first crush.

Joseph Crisalli said...

The crush is broken? So, let's say Karen has a crush on Johnny. In your hypothesis, Johnny is broken. By what? Goons? Bo Peep? The Springfield Legitimate Businessmen's Club? Or do you mean Karen's heart is broken because Johnny has a crush on Pete?

I kid.

Sam P said...

I had a crush on Pete. He liked some chick named Stacy. I cried for days.

Now I forgot my answer.

Joseph Crisalli said...

Sorry.
