Here's a few more

1)A boy was at a carnival and went to a booth where a man said to the boy, "If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me $50, but if I cannot, I will pay you $50."

The boy looked around and saw no scale so he agrees, thinking no matter what the carny writes he'll just say he weighs more or less.

In the end the boy ended up paying the man $50. How did the man win the bet?

2)George, Helen, and Steve are drinking coffee.
Bert, Karen, and Dave are drinking soda.
Using logic, is Elizabeth drinking coffee or soda?

- this one's a bit dumb

3)What kind of cheese is made backwards?

- this one's kind of cheesy (If you'll pardon the pun)

4)There is an English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?

5)The word CANDY can be spelled using just 2 letters. Can you figure out how?

6)Bill bets Craig $100 that he can predict the score of the hockey game before it starts. Craig agrees, but loses the bet. Why did Craig lose the bet?

7)I soar without wings, I see without eyes.
I've traveled the universe to and fro.
I've conquered the world, yet I've never been anywhere but home.
Who am I?

8)A magician was boasting one day at how long he could hold his breath under water. His record was 6 minutes. A kid that was listening said, "that's nothing, I can stay under water for 10 minutes using no types of equipment or air pockets!" The magician told the kid if he could do that, he'd give him $10,000. The kid did it and won the money. Can you figure out how?

9)I am the ruler of shovels
I have a double
I am as thin as a knife
I have a wife
What am I?

10)What force and strength cannot get through, I with a gentle touch can do.
And many in the street would stand, were I not a friend at hand.
What am I?

I have decided not to put any more riddles up tonight as Downunda has kindly put some up, and I am now busy racking my brain trying to figure out some answers.

Number 5 - the two letters you are looking for wouldn't be "C and Y" would they .

Another one bites the dust!!!
