Thanks, Nyamandlovu.

This is an easy one.

Two mothers and two daughters were fishing, and they managed to catch three fish. How is it possible that they each took a fish home?

Daughter, mother and grandmother, each catch one fish. (Daugher and mom = mother and daughter. Grandma and mom = mother and daughter.)


Let's keep with the animals, even though non-South African.

You walk out your front door, due south, for 1km. Or 10, doesn't really matter. You turn due east, and walk another 1km. Or 10. You turn due north, and walk another 1km (or 10 again if you're fit, unlike me). You are right back at your front door. Before you walk in you see a bear.

What is the colour of the bear? And more importantly, why is it that colour?

Is this a trick question?
The bear is brown because that's what colour bears are?
:pray:

:redface: Sorry, I didn't realise it had to be animal related. Some of the previous ones weren't, and mine was about fish!

What's that? I'm actually on my way now :tongue:

Let's throw out another one.

You are driving a bus into town.
At the first stop 5 people get on.
Next stop, 2 get on, 3 off.
4 on.
3 off.
2 off
6 on
5 on
2 off
1 off

You're at your destination....

What's the name of the bus driver?



Anitagibbs,

My apologies, you misunderstood my post! :redface: My meant "let my next post be about animals again!" Nothing to do with anybody else's posts. As far as I'm concerned, I may be wrong since I'm not the quiz starter, this is a open-anything-you-like RIDDLES quiz.

Reading your post again I see that now. :D I thought you meant that even a non-South African must keep the riddles about animals! :doh: :roll:
