Here's a good riddle that only works if spoken, not read, so say it to your friends:

One knight (people will think you're saying night), a king, and a queen get on a bus. There's no one else on the bus except the bus driver. After 15 minutes, without picking up or dropping off any more passengers, the bus stops, and everyone but the bus driver gets off, yet three people get off. How is this possible?

Because "knight" sounds like "night," people will think the king and the queen got on a bus at night. At first, they won't realize that a knight, a king, and a queen were on the bus.

:)

How about this:

You're in a cement room with no windows or doors. (The ceiling, floor, and walls are all made of cement.) The only thing you have is a mirror and a piece of wood. How do you get out?

This is a bit of a play on words and it would not work in real life, just so you know.

Here's the answer to the riddle. If you still want to try to figure it out, don't read any more of this post.

 

You look into the mirror and see what you saw. You take the saw and cut the piece of wood in half. Two halves make a whole, so you put the halves together, put the whole on the wall, and climb through the hole.

:)

I warned you it would be a play on words. :)
