    I am slim and tall,
    Many find me desirable and appealing.
    They touch me and I give a false good feeling.
    Once I shine in splendor,
    But only once and then no more.
    For many I am “to die for”.
    What am I?

    Kind Regards

    you’re a cigarette! [cigar]

    nice riddle jetdollars here’s one for you…

    What is greater than God,
    more evil than the devil,
    poor people have it,
    rich people need it,
    and if you eat it you will die?

    Why is Sam Mann dropping off clean clothes and picking up dirty ones?[blink]

    Or am I being sexist in assuming that Mrs Mann does the laudry!![blush2]

    “remember you can wear your underwear four times without washing it, forwards, backwards, inside out forwards, inside out backwards”[biggrin]

    okay the answer would be 15… he leaves 7 (a weeks worth) and takes 7 (the dirty laundry) plus she’d be wearing a pair… i think that’s right [thumbsup2]

    here’s another:

    Riddle no. 4

    A man walks into a bar and requests a glass of water, on hearing him the bartender pulls out a gun and aims it at him. The man says ‘thank you’ and walks out. Why?

    Here’s another one.
    You’ve got a bag with 50 gloves inside. 25 left and 25 right. How many do you have to take out before you have a pair.

    Is the answer 2 – you just need a pair, not one left and one right ?

    … or if you wanted to have one left and one right, then 26 ie worst case scenario is you pull out all 25 left, then the next one must be right and vice versa.

    Landt – was it 26 or 2.

    I have no idea about the one with the man walking into the bar – but I have heard it before a while ago. Can’t remember it – I think alcohol has killed too many brain cells.
