Sunday's drive up your blog… with Ramblin' Rooster

The official blog of

Riddle Answer #2

with 23 comments

Not as many answers this time, but some real zingers none the less. I think thus far, my favorite part of this whole thing is the answers y’all come up with, (especially that Claire, the hardest thinking blogger of them all).

As always; in my heart of hearts I wish I could say that they were all right, but alas that would be anarchy. I can say that there were no wrong answers, (see how I did that there?), but much like the dreaded game of “pick a number” the goal is to say the exact thing I’m thinking of.

Without further ado, I give you the answer to the riddle of,

What’s short in length

but hard to write

fun to read

but hard to say

easy to know

but embarrassing to get wrong?

Right after this…

“Before I was a rooster, I was a chick. Thanks to Dr. Snipit and Dr. Sewon, I’ve gone from chick to dick overnight and you can too. Just give ‘em a call and see what he can do for you!”

OK, we’re back and ready for the answer.

Again, I’d like to thank all of the answers and submittals that I received. All of them were gems of thought and humor to savor. Each one was immensely enjoyed.

We’d like to thank our sponsor and thoughtster behind the riddle game:

And now, for the answer:

“Sound Effects”


Egg On!

                • Claire Collins, that’s the one, but the one I hear is the old, album version that didn’t make me sad that ageism isn’t practiced in rock n’ roll.

                  • I couldn’t find a good youtube of the original. I Looked 😦

                    But, to make up for it, I heard the damn song in my head ALL day long! Does that help?

                    • Claire Collins, I love that I put music in your head all day long. Usually it’s me that falls victim to having a song put in my head for humming. I’m glad I could finally see the other side.

                    • I’ve always had songs repeating in my head. Of course, there’s not much else in there so things tend to echo for a really long time.

  3. Damn, I should have gotten it! Well played old chap, well played indeed!
    They sure are embarrassing to get wrong to! I remember that time I inserted canned laughter instead of the shocked gasp that I was supposed to use. Talk about EGG-ON my face. Ha ha!!

    • Scott Oglesby, OK, maybe the line about embarrassment was a tad of a reach, but that’s just the riddlers life. Hate the riddle not the riddler.

    • Claire Collins, it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game. I’m just glad you didn’t say wascally wooster.

        • Claire Collins, if Elmer Fudd’s spirit lived inside of you, nothing would hold it back. You’re just not Looney Tunes yet… you must keep reading my posts.

  5. I remember back in the day when riddles still meant something. Like the classic one about sneezing. These days it’s all non-sequitirs and pop-culture vomit.

    Why, just look at me. Disappointing all around. Nothing but new-wave gonzo blogging with nary a point in sight. And yet, people still read it.

    Watching a rooster argue with a published writer.

    Whatever happened to rational discourse like Frost and Nixon going at it with the enthusiasm of an insane man arguing with a gloryhound.

    It almost makes me weep huge fake-tears of faux-dismay.

    • Capitalist Lion Tamer, rational discourse fell between the crack caused by monster truck rallies and extreme ironing.
