Short Funny Riddles With Answers

Looking for some awesome riddles and answers to awaken the fierce, yet funny Edward Nygma within you or a friend? Look no further, we got you covered.

Some like it easy, some like to keep their brains busy. If you fall in the category of the latter, I believe you wouldn’t mind sparing some brain storage for short funny riddles, provided by Gotham’s one and only inventor of tricky questions – The Riddler.

The main difference between people that say “tell me a joke” and those who say “tell me a riddle” is their personal definition for funny jokes. Some people prefer being passive and listen, some prefer to use every single chance they get to test their intelligence. Whatever the case, if you are a person who likes to entertain guests and doesn’t want to leave it all to chance when it come to having fun, you have to do some digging and make sure you’re well prepared.

In a previous article we’ve already filled your humorous gun with funny bullets in the form of jokes. Ever, if the joke is on you, and you’re in need of a good comeback we’ve covered that too. In the light of that, I figured it’s time to combine both intensity and laughter because what’s the good of gathering with your gang if there’s no funny repertoire for everyone’s taste.

The reason why I used the Riddler to guide the way to some more or less demanding and puzzling questions, along with their answers is because he’s one of the few guys that are able to drive the Dark Knight mad. Well, maybe not mad, but on the edge of losing his patience, yes.

And while you’re having fun with these riddles with your friends, don’t forget to mention that that most of them were constructed by the Riddler for the purpose of confusing Batman. I mean, who would feel cool to walk a bit in Batman’s shoes?

You can even turn the experience into a fun game by dividing the gang in two teams and see which one can get more correct answers and win. Also, you might want to try to talk in a more dramatic way and make use of rhyme. This way, you’ll create a more authentic Riddler experience.

Now, here’s the best of the Riddler on a silver platter.
