Riddle Me This

Post by Ballistic Muffin » Fri May 25, 2012 2:41 am

You might riddle me, "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
I, in turn, ask: "Who says it was a road?"
And so you say, "That's how the joke goes," and I shall reply, "Who says it's a joke?"
So you say something along the lines of, "Because I said so," while I reply, "Who says you said so?" to which you have nothing to reply, and you may finally shut your mouth.
All the while, I know exactly why the chicken crossed the void between life and death: To get to the other side, and to be at peace.

Who says there's a void between life and death?

There is if you believe there is, and you're only there for a trillionth of a nanosecond before death either keeps its promise or changes its mind.

I intended the question as a witty, natural extension of your drabble, for which reason I was unable to even welcome you to the forum, (which lapse in etiquette was nicely covered by Mr. ROU, TYVM).
