Riddles Are Easy When You Cheat

Potbellys always has riddles. I never know the answer even when pressured. They had the same riddle for days last week:

A sundial has the fewest parts of all time pieces. What has the most?

I thought about it once, decided it was making my head hurt and never thought about it again. On Friday, when I was in there, a guy strolled up behind me and said, without any preface:

"I haven't given this much thought but an hourglass?"

Bastard! At first, I thought "What a show off" and then I thought, "why is he so much smarter than me?" Then I realized that a mere moment before, I had heard the sandwich guy ask him "same thing as yesterday?" Obviously he had been in there the day before, read the riddle, and Googled the answer! Sure enough, when I got home, I googled it and found the answer. You know what that means, don't you?

That bastard is STILL smarter than me.

So there you have it...the first real riddle on this site courtesy of a sandwich shop and the answer courtesy of same random guy who cheated with Google.

you gotta admit though he was being pretty sneaky and clever sayin he hadn't really thought much about it.. obviously if he googled it... and that's just cheating. so he doesn't count anyways and doese NOT make him smarter than you.

Blaez - you are right - what a sneak! I need to be more sneaky.

Catherinette - no kidding! schooled by some dweeb in a tie and shirt sleeves or whatever they call those things now.

I never would have figured that out. That guy was a cheater and was totally trying to look cool. Maybe he was even hitting on you and was looking to impress you.

Jenny - actually, he may have been trying to pick up the guy making the sandwiches. Just saying.
