Forgive me if i'm stale,
but I am not frail.
Who am I?
I thought of an answer mostly based on stale
but I'll hold my breath and my answer
for fear I will fail
I will check in late tonight
to see who gets it right

After my recent embarrassment
do I dare,
to venture a guess, the answer
is air?

LabRatBrewer I think you got it
Throw out an answer a wins in your pocket
Same thought I had after reading this question
And your repsonse is full of helpful suggestion

Edit: Looks like Clifton was giving the answer as I was a typing.
If both you guys aren't right I'm gonna start wiping.

You are very much right,
There is no need to fight.
The answer is air,
I hope the riddle was fair.
I will wait for the next riddle,
Whilst listening to the fiddle.

Here is a riddle and it is old
remember the age as you have been told:

My mother deserted me, but people picked me up.
They cut off my head, scoop out my heart and gave me drink. Then I began speaking.

If I were to take a guess and answer this song,
I am almost positive i'll be wrong.
A Jack-o-Lantern for Halloween,
Like a made when I was a teen.

A Jack-O-Lantern friend you did say?
It doesn't cover the topics of the riddle today.
But I do admit I thought the same too
It just doesn't explain all things in this stew.

I hope that you are right of course my good man
LabRatBrewer brought upon a devious plan.
Wouldn't be the first time somebody gave the right answer
And my lethargic brain didn't follow it by chancer (bad)


Here are some of my foolish own thoughts.
Not one of them worthy a good sleep in a cot.

My answer was Moses floating the river Nile,
But that really does not make one smile

They cut off my head, scoop out my heart
I thought artichoke, artichoke
But I'm wrong from the start.

And gave me drink. Then I began speaking
This one is just way to hard
Tonight I'll sleep in the yard.

I can come up with crappy answers for certain sentences
But to answer it whole... it's like looking through a prism.

A horse?

I'm cheating of course and had to look this up...


"A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a horse of course
That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister Ed.
Go right to the source and ask the horse
He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse.
He’s always on a steady course. Talk to Mister Ed.
People yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day
But Mr. Ed will never speak unless he has something to say
A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And this one’ll talk ‘til his voice is hoarse.
You never heard of a talking horse?
Well listen to this: 'I'm Mister Ed.'"
