Does answering this riddle make me the hero? (edit: guess not!)
I'm pretty certain it should be zero.

Emjay shows that there is nothing to it,
Even a geico caveman could do it.

Emjay you did what I did once before
Made a rhyming answer but not in due time
Takes a few minutes to come up with a rhyme
Knew the correct answer, poetry takes up some time

So if I may suggest,
How about you post the next!

I'm thinking every one is worn out or busy,

I just reread this thread and it's making me dizzy!

I hope that you all, have a great night,

Cause you guys are truly, out of sight!

Maybe a few RiddlePoems will be posted,

Into this night some should do a lit'l boast'n.

To the many clever minds here,

Your creativeness is perfectly clear.

I have a little house in which I live all alone. There are no doors or windows. If I want to go out I have to break through the wall.

A critter in an egg?

To leave my house makes me sicken
for my fear you call me chicken

It's easy to answer the question in time
when you don't bother to make it rhyme
