    I heard this riddle on the radio today, but then missed the solution.

    Caveat: I cannot remember the exact wording. Here are two possible variations:

    You will touch this 25 times before you will buy it.
    This will be touched 25 times before you buy it.

    Now I'm dying to know.

    A "dollar roll" contains 25 coins -- so someone will have touched 25 quarters before you buy a dollar roll. That's the best I can do!
