Bingo. Now here's some harder ones.

Why not?

Second one: $.05
 captain is sailing through the arctic. The first mate runs up and says to him, "captain, there is an iceberg dead ahead. What should we do?" The captain looks at the iceberg, then glances at his map and says, "there's no iceberg here! Keep going!"

Well played.

Ok, here's the last one for tonight. I'm sure a lot of people already know this one, but it's worth a shot.


The dying king wanted to pass his crown on to the wiser of his two sons, so he held a horse race. He told them: "The son whose horse rides to the lake and returns to the castle last will inherit my kingdom." The younger son immediately jumped on a horse and rode away. Instantly, the king knew the younger son would inherit the kingdom.
How did he know?

Surely you want somebody else to use the drug - not yourself.

But then why would you buy a coffin if you didn't want to use it?  Maybe you didn't want to have to use it, but surely you wouldn't want to just waste money, and you would want this person to have a nice funeral.  I say date rape drugs must be an alternative answer.

When you buy a coffin (which is the answer the original riddle) you use it too - you put your loved one in it.  I don't see how coffin can be a legitimate answer but date rape drug is not.

Funny, I seem to recall the person who was likely to say things like that, and I seem to recall him not meaning it as a joke...

Anyway, I agree with that date rape drugs is as valid an answer as a coffin.  You have to make exactly the same allowances on "use" for it to make sense as an answer.  It is also more topical to today's youth!
