Hello and welcome.
This week I thought we would have a little fun with the word of the week so our word this week is Conundrum.
collinsdictionary.com defines Conundrum as:
1. a riddle whose answer contains a pun
2. any puzzling question or problem
I like the word conundrum because not only is the word fun to say (or maybe I’m just a little
weird eccentric) the definition, a riddle, pun or puzzle, can be fun as well.
Here are a couple examples:
1. A poor old farmer had three roosters. One was a beautiful, robust, golden color, Buff Orpington; the second a prize winning Rhode Island Red; and the third an scrawny old leghorn.
Which one laid the golden egg?
2. If a plane crashed on the boarder of Canada and the USA where would they bury the survivors?
(answers at the end of this post)
Currently we are dealing with a bit of a conundrum in that the dog eats the cat food and the cat eats the dog food. It is a puzzling problem but we haven’t considered this too big of a problem since they do not fight over the food, none of them gotten sick, and they all seem to get enough to eat. I told my husband I will worry about it if the cat starts barking or the dog starts meowing. LOL!
Do you have a conundrum you would like to share? (go ahead make me laugh) Did you get the answer to my two examples?
Answers: 1. None of them – because roosters don’t lay eggs. 2. They wouldn’t bury survivors (those are the people who live). 🤣
