Thursday Morning Riddle

November 12th, 2015

I’m to let loose your tongue to spread word or defame;
To reproach with a finger when calling out shame;
I’m a mischievous wit; I’m a footballer’s flame;
And I’m shaking your tail to convey that you’re tame.

Who am I?

Shakespeare Anagram: Richard III

October 31st, 2015

From Richard III:

Since you will buckle fortune on my back,
To bear her burden, whe’r I will or no,
I must have patience to endure the load

Shift around the letters, and it becomes:

We’re unrelieved Ryan buckled and “without ambition” will become Speaker of the House.

But not our concern, Hillary.

October 1st, 2015

I’m to end a night’s sleep as you rise up in bed;
I’m the waves left behind when a ship moves ahead;
I’m the group name for vultures that’s used when they’ve fed;
And a party that’s held to watch over the dead.

Who am I?

I’m the North to the South from when they would combat;
But abroad, an American, separate from that;
I’m on base in the Bronx when the home team’s at bat;
And a dandy named Doodle with feather in hat.

Who am I?

Shakespeare Anagram: Measure for Measure

September 12th, 2015

From Measure for Measure:

Do you your office, or give up your place,
And you shall well be spar’d.

Shift around the letters, and it becomes:

Davis, you loud bully, offer up a license or go. We pay you.

Preach, Lord!

Thursday Morning Riddle

September 10th, 2015

I am closing a building, or folding a store;
Power off a computer, or nuclear core;
To become so stressed out you don’t try anymore;
And a government stoppage, its branches at war.

Who am I?

Shakespeare Anagram: Othello

August 29th, 2015

From Othello:

Farewell the neighing steed, and the shrill trump,
The spirit-stirring drum, the ear-piercing fife,
The royal banner, and all quality,
Pride, pomp and circumstance of glorious war!

Shift around the letters, and it becomes:

Marble renter Donald single-handedly ruining prim GOP presidential hope with hateful quotes, gruff actions, and racist thralls cheering him.

We truly appreciate it, Mr. Firer.

August 27th, 2015

I proceed on the clock; on the farm, I assist;
I’m a round of applause; I’m attached at the wrist;
I’m a pledge asked for marriage; where gentlemen kissed;
And the cards you are dealt playing poker or whist.

Who am I?

August 20th, 2015

I’m a liquid dispenser for water or beer;
I’m a kind of a dance you can see and can hear;
Send a message in Morse; install listening gear;
And remove from the spine excess fluid that’s clear.

Who am I?

I’m a sack for your back that a camper might use;
To put clothes in your suitcase to take on a cruise;
I’m a new deck of cards; I am ice for a bruise;
I’m a cigarette box; and six linked cans of booze.

Who am I?
