Riddle this Riddle that.

“What’s green and can say Hey, I’m a frog.?”
—the talking frog.

Well, that’s one of the stupid jokes I got from Friends. Hehe. A Riddle can be amusing, if it’s not confusing. I like solving those, particularly the ones with words. Word gaming is fun, forming verbs, twisting meanings, or arranging letters. It’s the simplest game. Like what they say about Scrabble, “A minute to learn, A lifetime to master.

You have been given nine numbers. One until Nine.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

These numbers are displayed in this specific array below :

8 5 4 9 1 7 _ _ _

The last three positions are being left out for you to fill in. What number comes next after 7? And what will be next? It’s your job to think. I may remind you that this may seem like a math problem. But if you’re as bright as I hope, you will be able to see the answer right away even with no math skill at all.

Well, have a try. I’ll have the answer for you in the end of this post. Be an honest person and don’t cheat! I know you won’t stoop that low.

Another riddle for you today. Read this sentence below thoroughly and meticulously.

Tom Cruise walks to the end of Wall Street. There he finds a Sphinx whose ass is stomped in the middle of the MET. Agatha Christie is the first person to see. Tell me, what would they like to drink best?”

Well, that one is easy. Hehehe.

Visual Riddle

While you are thinking and soliloquizing, I shall serve you with these fun quotes from Friends below.

Monica : Hey. Where is he, where's Richard? Did you ditch him?
Joey : Yeah, right after we stole his lunch money and gave him a wedgie. What's the matter with you? He's parking the car.

Phoebe : [Right after playing a song in the coffee shop ] If you want to receive e-mails about my upcoming shows, then please give me money so I can buy a computer.

[Commentating at her girlfriend’s dirty house…]
Ross : You know how at the end of the day, you throw your jacket over a chair?
Joey : Yeah?
Ross : Well at her place, instead of a jacket, it's a pile of garbage. And instead of a chair, it's a pile of garbage. And instead of the end of the day, it's the end of time, and garbage is all that has survived.

[Phoebe is cutting Monica's hair]
Phoebe : Relax, I know what I'm doing, this is how HE wears it.
Monica : How who wears it?
Phoebe : Demi Moore
Monica : Demi Moore is not a he.
Phoebe : Well, he was HE in ARTHUR and in 10 eh,
Monica : THAT'S DUDLEY MOORE! I said I wanted it like Demi Moore.
Phoebe : Oh, OH!
Monica : OH MY GOD!
Phoebe : I'm sorry, I'M SORRY! Which one is Demi Moore?
Phoebe : OH! Oh she's got gorgeous hair.
Monica : I KNOW!

[After Monica gets a disastrous haircut…]
Ross : How's Monica?
Phoebe : She's calmed down a bit. I put a clip on one side, which seems to have stopped the curling.
Ross : How's the hair?
Phoebe : I'm not gonna lie to you Ross. It doesn't look good.
Joey : Can we see her?
Phoebe : No, your hair looks too good. I think it would only upset her.
Rachel : Oh.
Phoebe : Ross, you can go on in.

[While arguing about the next Thanksgiving…]
Monica : Also, just so you know, I'm not making a turkey this year.
Joey : What?
Monica : Well, Phoebe doesn't eat turkey...
Joey : Phoebe!
Phoebe : Turkey's are beautiful, intelligent animals.
Joey : No they're not! They're ugly and stupid and delicious!

Rachel and Hoey

[Will gives a cake to Monica]
Will : It's no fat, no sugar, no dairy...It's no good, throw it out!

Ross : What are you doing tonight?
Chandler: Why, do you have a lecture?
Ross : No
Chandler: Free as a bird, what's up?

Ross : What is the name of Chandler's father's all male burlesque review?
Monica : Viva Las Gay-gas!
Chandler: Unfortunately, that would be correct.

[Chandler is complaining about his parents]
Chandler : The Bings have horrible marriages! They yell. They fight. And they use the pool boy as a pawn in their sexual games!
Ross : Chandler, have you ever put on a black cocktail dress and asked me up to your hotel room?
Chandler : No.
Ross : Then you are neither of your parents!

[Monica knocks]
Chandler : You can't come in!
Monica : Why not?
Chandler : Because, uh, Ross is naked.
Ross : What?
Chandler [to Ross]: Well, I couldn't tell her *I* was naked. She's allowed to see me naked.
Ross : Why does *anyone* have to be naked?

Monica : Oh my god. How cute is the new eye doctor?
Rachel : So cute I'm thinking about jamming this pen in my eye.

Monica : Joey, what would you do if you were omnipotent?
Joey : I'd probably kill myself.
Monica : Excuse me?
Joey : Hey, if Little Joey's dead, then I got no reason to live.
Ross : Uh, Joey... Omnipotent.
Joey : You are? Ross, I'm so sorry.

For the numbers, I bet you try to think of a formula. The correct answer is
