Riddle Me Rain

I got such a good response from yesterday’s post I found I had no idea what to do today. I am obviously aiming way too high. So today, you get a riddle. I suck at riddles so I hope this isn’t one you’ve heard before. Please do not look it up online, there is nothing fun about that. Just give it a guess.

Captain Frank was out for a walk when it started to rain. He did not have an umbrella and he wasn’t wearing a hat. His clothes were soaked, yet not a hair on his head got wet. How could this happen?

    I, as a bald man, am going to guess that he was bald.

    You want to touch my head, don’t you?

    Captain frank placed a large fish which he had slit open at the belly upon his head as a hat. This fish-hat kept his hair dry from the rain, but, unfortunately was quite smelly. The overwhelming fishy smell caused poor captain frank to pass out as he walked the long and lonely road home. The rain did not stop the feral cats who feasted upon his body.

    Fish was not served at Captain franks funeral

    He was bald. Der.

    How much dirt is in a hole that measures 12ft x 10ft x 8 ft?

    What about this one:

    You’re driving a car at a steady, set speed.
    On your left hand there’s a ravine.
    On your right hand is a fire truck, driving at the exact same speed even though it looks like he wants to pass you.
    In front of you there’s a pig, bigger than your car, also running at the same speed.
    Behind you is a helicopter flying close to the ground at, again, the exact same speed.

    Question: How can you stop, without causing any accidents?

    gwen if there is dirt in the hole, its no longer a hole, however, it has become a convenient place to leave an inconvenient body!

    and coffee in kits – i thought there were age limits on merry go rounds…

    Duh. He walked upside down. :avi:

    Of course, even bald men have errant hairs on their heads.

    why is the pig bigger than your car? Is it hogzilla? or is your car tiny?

    Amanda – Depends on how you look at it…
