O/T Riddle for you

Post by hector » Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:52 pm

Here is the situation:



You are on a horse, galloping at a constant speed.

On your right side is a sharp drop-off.


On your left side is an elephant traveling at the same speed as you.


Directly in front of you is a galloping kangaroo and your horse is unable to overtake it.


Behind you is a lion running at the same speed as you and the kangaroo.


What must you do to get out of this highly dangerous situation?

Just keep going. The lion isn't catching up anyway, and they aren't known for running for very long.

Many times have I had to sit and watch my daughters on them, still might not be correct!

This is the answer as was sent to me:

Get off the merry-go-round and go home you old fart,
you've had enough excitement for one day!
