    Here's an easy one for ya; probably been posted before.

    It is in the rock, but not in the stone;
    It is in the marrow, but not in the bone;
    It is in the bolster, but not in the bed;
    It is not in the living, nor yet in the dead.

    What is it?

    P.S. - Plenty more easy ones where that came from.

    Correct.

    It got stuck in the exhaust pipe of someone's car??

    err,... something to do with a carriage?

    heh, even if a "dead baby" did cross the road, it can't do it without aid from something else.
    think only with code.
    write only with source.
