This is a game of riddling proportions! The concept is to take turns posting riddles. Whoever gets the correct answer gets to post the next riddle.

I'll start.

There are four brothers in this world that were all born together:
The first he runs and never wearies,
The second eats and is never full.
The third he drinks and is ever thirsty,
And the fourth sings a song that is never good.

Who are they?

I love riddles, but I tend to answer too quickly. The last one makes me question my answer.

Charlie Eppes is correct! He may post the next evil riddle.

Riddles In The Forum is a parody of "Riddles In The Dark" from Chapter 5 of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Alright, here is a classic:

He who has it doesn't tell it. He who takes it doesn't know it. He who knows it doesn't want it. What is it?

This sounds like that coffin riddle. But it's a little different.

It does sound remarkably like the coffin riddle. However, that is not the answer.

As for herpes, the answer would be no as well. Although, I see how it could work. The only problem would be with the assumption that the person would never tell that they have it.

Perhaps we should reveal the answer after a while to move the game forward on those really hard riddles. How about after 10 days? Then just secret the answer for those that still want to solve it.

Wouldn't be Death, would it? It would seem like a really odd answer to me, but it's all I can come up with.

NiroZ is correct.

I'm afraid I don't understand Monkey's answer, but expect that hearing the rationale would be very amusing.

It made much more sense to me before NiroZ posted. Maybe I should just stay out of these threads. :|
Sorry, I'm currently in 'boring' mode. Don't look to me for humor. :look

anyone else note that that guy's eyes are transparent? kinda been bugging for a while

Your respect, like a bill shot down in the Great Constipator due to purely political reasons, denied of both its own glory and that of the lives it would improve by the simple act of its BEING, selfishness again standing in the way of progress?

You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What are you eating?
