Question The Riddle Thread (read rules in first post!)
I was thinking, why not have a little thread with riddles to exercise our mind? Big Grin

I'd like to lay some rules to avoid chaos. Tongue

  1. Don't post more than one riddle.
  2. Don't post new riddles until the last one has been answered.
  3. The one who answers the riddle will post the new one. So, you guess it, you propose the next one.
  4. Obviously, you cannot answer your own riddle.
  5. Let's avoid suggestions and hints (also, no-one will check you, but let's avoid Google aye? Otherwise where is the fun?) Big Grin


---

This is my first riddle:

A group of tourists visiting a city enters a square. In the middle of the square there is a statue, and they instantly understand that it represents Adam. However there is no sign with a name below it and there is not fig leaf on his male parts. How did they understand it then?

Let the dance begin! Smartass Big Grin

Nope, the statue is in the middle of a square, so it's outside. No, it's not the apple.

Got it. No belly button.

Need to think of a riddle. Give me a bit.

Riddle me this:
A gangster was killed by her pimp friend when he found her with five of his best girls. Why?

I know you said no hints but... Should I?

Uhm let's modify that rule. No hints, unless someone doesn't solve it in the next day? Big Grin That way we don't get stuck. Ok, give us a hint. Big Grin

The Gangster was killed in the same room as the girls but there were only three witnesses to the act.

Edit: Typo
