HawksBrewer - that was my answer too! I think it is easily understood why that would be the correct answer as well..

Keeping my word, I'll play you a song.

It has to be the right answer! Especially if I have hardwood throughout (aka no carpet on stairs).

Good point, but what if you have carpeting and no hand rail? Catch 22

Here's the next one. I guessed it correctly myself by chance but my answer didn't make sense until I heard the explanation.

Oh, I forgot to put this to a rhyme
Which recently takes up a lot of my time

So this is about as well as I can do
Hoping it keeps everone happy too.

You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?

That's not a catch-22, that's a code violation!

Oh by the way

I just have to say

I'm not posting riddles

That have not turned my head in some strange way

But the ones I post, I've all figured out

You can find the answers on interwebz

Without doubt.

But I will not post one that I didn't answer

Most riddles here, are my way to avoid brain cancer.

Not really, and I shouldn't joke about that

Just having fun and petting my cat.

Pretty sure it is around here, if there are at least three steps you need a rail. Had to install one on the old house before we sold it. Not that anyone really cares!

Dan, do you write poems for a living, by chance?

PS - how about corn.

[QUOTE=GilaMinumBeer;4184814]Chicken.

You're sort of close GilaMinumBeer.. It does start with C

I've now given away the answer

What do you say about that Sir?

TyTanium, I didn't see your post before my last answer

But your answer is correct, quite a chancer.

No I don't write poems for a living

If I did I think my mind would stop giving.

I do this just for a little fun

Recently too... but I have to say

I believe I'm going crazy in some weird way.

Next Up!

I have holes in my top and bottom, my left and right, and in the middle. But I still hold water. What am I?
