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...


Can you explain how long cows should be milked?

And the answer is...

In the same way you'd milk a short cow.

Bravo for the wealth of amusing, if not salty, answers today.  You're a fine and witty lot, you are.  Come back next Friday for another of Mr Punch's Puzzles!
