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 is a bad cold like a great humiliation?





And, the answer is...

BECAUSE BOTH BRING A MAN TO HIS SNEEZE.  (HIS KNEES).

I think I rather regret picking this riddle today.  But, you all made lemons out of lemonade...or something...and came up with some really clever answers.  Come back next Friday for another of Mr. Punch's Puzzles.  I'll try to make the next one a little less...stupid.







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.
