    Correct Friday was the name of the horse, the winner may pat hism/herself on the back and look smug for 10 minutes. That was only the easy one though...
    Monday - what a way to spend a seventh of your life

    And two only in me.

    Im black blue and grey,
    Im read from both ends,
    And the same either way.

    well i did say that one was easy but you would be surprised by the number of people who answer 0 degrees to that one lol

    heres another old one maybe you know it:-

    In the desert there is a large lorry next to a tall building.Inside the building there is nothing except a man hanging from the rafters dead. There is no obvious way for him to have got up there so how did he hang himself?

    S_C:

    He used the truck to bring the large ice cube he was standing on when he tied the rope to the rafters. This has now melted in the desert heat and the water evaporated.

    That's actually the answer? That's awful! Is there anyway you could figure that out if you hadn't heard it before? It's like the riddle from Wizard and Glass - "Why did the dead baby cross the road?"

    Note: This is like the 6th or 7th post in a row that I've had to refresh to post correctly.

    I've been having the same problem - I posted a note about it on the moderators board about 10 minutes ago.

    And... stapled to the chickens tail.
