Hope this one's fun, what the heck?
With a perfectly good ship,
Unless it breaks and takes a dip,
I would say never!
Isn't that clever?

Have a happy doomsday everyone!....

No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball."

Ok so I will chime in and give you a riddle
something to do whilst you sit and fiddle
and ponder your time here on Earth.
Are the Myans correct, what is the worth?
Whatever it is, what comes of may
We wake to celebrate this 21st day
of December unknown
Let our hearts be light and our wrongs be unsewn
So heres to you my fellow beer kin
Merry Christmakwanzahanauka to all... let the games begin!

A man, whos son is bleeding to death, walks into a hospital with his son in his arms screaming, "Help my son is dying!" A doctor turns to help and says, "My God, he's my son!"

and so its begun...

(I apologize if this has already been done!)

Hmmm either it's the young boys mother,
Or possibly it could be another.
It could be another pa,
If gay marriage is within the law!

What I have I got in my pocket?

Or...

One man builds it but sells it
Another man buys it but doesn't use it
Another man uses it but doesn't know it.

Ill give it a try to see if I can
So riddle me this Batman

Play my music, if you dare. Turn my crank, although I'm square. Stand back, or get a scare, when you see my surprising glare. What am I?

Are you sure?
The future is scary (I know I was there tomorrow).

Well, you got it.
You're smart and from me will get no sorrow.
