Riddle Me This…
We all know how fond Hobbits are of riddles and just how clever Bilbo is in his riddle competition with Gollum in the bowels of the Misty Mountains! Here are some riddles created by my freshmen that might stump even the most clever Hobbit!

Yet it can let them slip away

Yet sometimes see through it you may

I have chords but can never talk;
You can play me and never win;

I don’t give up without a fight
Without me, the mornings aren’t very funny
I am like your energizer bunny

And turns on when day becomes night?

What does man love more than life,
Fear more than death or mortal strife,
What the poor have, the rich require,
Amd what contented men desire,
What the miser spends and the spendthrift saves,
All men carry it to their graves

It has no mouth but can sing and talk;
Can take you anywhere but cannot walk;
It has no eyes, but through it you can see anything;
Not alive, but requires energy.

Due to a blow,

I am the color of snow.
