Riddle #1 A Tale of the Cats….. To get your brain thinking again. The lucky cats in Strafton Street Had seven mice a piece to eat. The rest made do with only two: The total score Being twenty-four. How many cats ate mousie meat?
Riddle #2 An Ugly Monster… no not me, thanks a lot. A freak, a most unusual pike, Was caught at Jackson’s Point by Mike The fish was ugly, huge and strong, With head alone twelve inches long. Its body equaled, so Mike said, Just half its tail plus twice its head: A third the monster’s total length was tail, grotesque, but build for strength. So now maybe you’d like to see How long this curious fish would be?
