Thursday Morning Riddle: Ambiguous Edition

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Today’s riddle has two possible answers.

If you’re not wearing pants, I’ll leave marks on your rear;
When you’re taming a lion, I’m time-honored gear;
A Congressional leadership role for the year;
And I’m used in a punishment most find severe.

Who am I? And who am I?

I’m the opening scenes before “Shrew” has begun;
I’m to prove a first case, and then prove the plus one;
The event where you join; how electrons can run;
And to bring about birth, once a pregnancy’s done.

I’m that unpleasant reflex that comes when you choke;
I’ve been worn on the mouth so that nought could be spoke;
I’m a present that’s funny — a practical joke;
And an order from courts that’s a secrecy cloak.

Who am I?

I’m unfolding events, as a tale recollects;
The land under a tombstone, to pay last respects;
Place a point where the x with the y intersects;
And a plan hatched in secret that no one expects.

I’m a spot to get sun, or for grilling out back;
I record a cassette tape, or play an eight-track;

And the thing you should hit when you’re under attack!

I’m keyed into machines where transactions are made;
Struck by balls in the lanes; also, in the arcade;
To post pictures online where they’re often displayed;
I keep wrestlers down; and restrain the grenade.

And the spot used for serving a meal that you cook.

And an adjective used for describing Clark Kent.
