    Kings blow their nose into a hanky and pocket it. Peasants blow directly onto the ground (like sportsman, I suppose)

    Anyone, take it away.

    Theunis - that was a very "think of of the box" riddle. My answer now sounds lame.



    Put a coin into an empty bottle and insert a cork into the neck. How can you remove the coin without removing the cork or breaking the bottle
