Riddles.

Anyone know any riddles ?
Let's start with this.
What is it someone buys you, it's made to measure, used once only and it's not something you want ?

Re: Riddles.

I'd guess 'e'.
Not so much a riddle, but one I've set for our family Christmas Quiz:-
On what date did?  A man become a father, another turn to drink, a monarch become provincial, and another Monarch put on weight.
(should be easy for Shutter)

Re: Riddles.

A man become a father
The man was Peter............he is now called...............
To be fair it was a bit of a conundrum and not a riddle
The date when Peter became 'Papa'  -- William (another man) became 'Whiskey' (a drink), - A Monarch (Queen) turned Provincial 'Quebec' and another Monarch (King) turned weighty 'Kilo'.
The date was 1st Mar 1956 when the current phonetic Alphabet was adopted.
