Hey guys. I hope you have all have left your opinions on the Blog Blowfish vote you can find here.
I have decided to give the Thursday Teaser a bit of an overhaul with a completely new way of doing it. Now that I have a BBF Facebook account, I shall post a riddle each Thursday as normal but only on Facebook. You can get a link to the teaser on the top right hand on the blog. This will be updated each week so that you can find the new one each week. If you don’t want to miss out please follow me on Twitter or Facebook.
Well. We are back with our Thursday Teasers. If you don’t know the format by now, I will give you lovely readers a riddle you have to solve within a week. Leave a comment on this post and if you are right you can expect your name to be given with the answer next week when we reveal all, and give you a new riddle to ponder.
This week’s riddle is named Greedy Gary, and goes as follows;
Greedy Gary is happily eating his bag of sweets, until his friends, Hungry Harry, Starving Sammy, and Well Fed William seek to get in on the action. Gary didn’t want to give away any of his sweets, but William (Who wanted to get his friends something to eat) gave Gary a challenge – Gary was to make a solitary statement. If what he said was true, he was to give a sweet to Hungry Harry, however if what he said was false, he was to give a sweet to Starving Sammy. What did he say which allowed him to not give away any sweets?

This weeks riddle is title Punch of Death
A man walks into a party and pours some punch and ice into a cup. He was really thirsty and drank it really fast. Then he left the party.Later he hears that everyone at the party died. There was poison in the punch.
How did the man not die if he drank the same punch and didn’t poison it?
The poison was in the ice, so because the man drank his drink quickly the ice didn’t have time to melt into the drink.

This weeks riddle is:
What is strange about Boris’ Day out?
Boris was walking back from a visit down in Aubry Down’s manufacturing district on a Saturday night. A busy day’s traffic had had its noisy run; and with not many folks in sight, Boris got along without having to stop to grasp a hand, or talk; for a mayor out of City Hall is a shining mark for any politician. And so, coming to Mayfair, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Mayfair’s night shopping crowds. Boris, walking towards that group, saw a young girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration …
Enjoy, I have a feeling this will keep you occupied for a while.
I thought this would be a hard one for you guys, but DrQAlias spoilt that.
If you notice the text does not use a single “e.” How about that!
Congrats to JustJoey on Reddit for guessing last week’s answer for the Shirt Numbers Riddle if you missed it you can find it here.
A soldier runs up the the front line with a bag of 12 cannonballs. Unfortunately, one of the 12 cannonballs was 100g instead of the normal 200g. If the 100g cannonball got put into the canon it would stick and blow the canon up, so he really needed to find the lighter cannonball. They all were the same size and shape, so the only way he could tell the difference would be by the weight. Luckily, there were some scales they used to weigh gunpowder which he could use on the battlefield. He desperately needs to find the lighter cannonball in the quickest possible time.
What is the least number of times you can use the scales to find out which of the cannonballs is the 100g one?
No one managed to answer this riddle. I gave out a few hints saying how you didn’t need to use maths, but the answer uses even less. You don’t even need to use the scales.
You don’t need the scales because the weight difference will be able to be felt just using your hands. The soldier would have been able to find the lighter cannonball just by comparing them in his hands.
If you remember last week’s riddle concerning the 4 kings blocking a jack in a room. Unfortunately, no one got the right answer so I will have to reveal it. The King you should go past is the King of Hearts, because if you look closely the sword in is hand and is in his head!
This weeks riddle is simple…
How do you add 2 to 171 and make it less than 18?
If you know the answer put it in the comments and if you are right you will be mentioned in next week’s Thursday teaser!
