    You might have heard this one, oh well, kinda easy.

    Once a man claimed that nobody could solve his riddle. It was, what is the answer. He gave them one hint-"the answer is everywhere" one person took a guess and got it right.

    What was the answer and why was it so hard? :biggrin:

    The exact wording of the riddle was: "What is the answer."
    Is that correct? (I wasn't sure from your post).

    This reminds me of an old TV program called "You Bet Your Life". Groucho would tell his guests "Say de secret woid an win a huner dollas". A far as I know, no one ever said "the secret word".

    "What is 'Everywhere'"? For a million dollars, Alex. I will take that in tens and twenties.
