Hi Chaps,

Thought this might be the kind of place someone might appreciate a riddle, so I've got some here! They all work the same way, see if you can get any - answers coming soon:

My first is a drink, to sup from a cup,
My second aghast, realisation, doughnut,
My third is from Tony, a toy do I take,
My fourth is a bend or the shape of a snake,
My fifth is to see with, or stuck in the middle,
My sixth is French, she's the end of the riddle,
Do you still have me, or am I not there?
The answer is not the disease we could share.


The joint on your leg wasn’t formerly known,
Take the sound of a bird from the top of your skull,
Yes, right and sure, said in Yorkshire man tones,
Could be sharp, maybe flat, on the clef you should mull,
It’s function’s explained when you add this to ear,
The definitive article, without him it’s all here,
What is this thing that ‘could’ travel in dark?
If the middle is near, you’re not wide of the mark.


My horse that I ride on, I tell you to speed up!
For me, well, I am but for them, well, they what?
A celestial body means true excellence here,
And fowl on the wing when migrating appear,
To scarper is correct, not the insect that jumps,
It means I’ll stop my slouching if you take the lump,
When we are alone always grim is our bearing,
And sometimes a hat that a letter is wearing.


A jumbled up metal from sweet flavoured plant,
They have this in common, your uncle and aunt,
Small thank you backwards from tattle tale ‘mole’,
Big stream from a stick to hit ball towards hole,
Informal boy from a clue to a crime,
We’ve had this one before, it’s the end of the rhyme,
I could be described as a group of something,
If you ride this horse backwards, you’ll definitely win.


A German No. But in Roman, had no marker for the spot,
And the opposite of do, had removed from it a dot,
To look, or ‘yes’ in Spanish tongue, a single letter’s what you need,
An aqua brief, known by make, has totally no need of speed,
A raw material is gone, from something extra, additional,
And backwards smallish entrance rug, from a shrew that’s not feral,
If you’ve got a job but not a slave, this will help you fuel your car,
Or mix this word up just a bit, a host will say this when door’s ajar.


And if you've made it this far, congratulations!

I'm rubbish at riddles. I don't understand how they work and don't know how you'd even start solving them.

Assuming direct control...

no idea but i'll add an easy one if you like Tolkien


What has no padlock, key or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid?

methinks it's a beehive

and you would be incorrect (as long as my memory on that book is reasonable accurate -although i beg your forgiveness if i'm wrong, it so often happens )

Tonsil ... tonsilitis?
the drink is tea (T)
Dougnut is O shape, and surprised mouth shape,
Tony minus the toy leaves only N left,
Windy snake sounds like an S
I is in the middle,
I don't know about french ladies, but tonsilitis is a disease ...

This is one I made earlier

The common folk speak of Hades,
Lay something with no initial good growth,
and a tasty exclamation.
No seems endless without it,
and yet the end is in sight!
