Thursday Morning Riddle

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

I get schooled by a Globetrotter, just as we planned;
I’m the final election; high-ranking command;
The attorney or surgeon for all of the land;
I’m a Hospital soap; or Electric-named brand.

Who am I?

Thursday Morning Riddle

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

I’m the plate and the flatware that make up a space;
I’m to purchase an ad; put a name to a face;
I’m to put down a bet; number two in a race;
And the spot where a digit exponents its base.

Who am I?

Thursday Morning Riddle

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

I’m a station off-air; I’m a stage with no show;
I’m the absence of light; I’m a bat or a crow;
What you say when you don’t want much cream in your Joe;
And your place when there’s something you’re not meant to know.

Who am I?

Your Move: Thursday Morning Riddle

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

The Shakespeare Teacher is out. It’s your move.

Today’s challenge is the Thursday Morning Riddle. The answer is:


PLACE

PLACE is correct. Way to go, Bill!

Now, you write the riddle.

Entries should follow the same format as earlier riddles: four lines of anapestic tetrameter with rhyme scheme AAAA (all four lines rhyme). Riddles are written in the first person (i.e., from the point of view of “Place”). Semicolons are used to mark a change in word meaning. The word “Place” should not be in the riddle, in any form.

Entries are due by February 8, and a winner will be chosen after that time.

UPDATE: Contest deadline extended until February 15. Good riddling!
