1. ## Riddle me this...

Just killing time at the shop, started looking at riddles.

SOLVED by littlematt

B This number is the only one of its kind: 8,549,176,320

SOLVED by littlematt

C A dozen Royals gathered round, Entertained by two who clowned.
Each King there had servants ten, Though none of them were also men.
The lowest servant sometimes might, Defeat the King in a fair fight.
A weapon stout, a priceless jewel, The beat of life, a farmer's tool.
What are we talking about here folks?

A busy day's traffic had had its noisy run; and with not many folks in sight, His Honor got along without having to stop to grasp a hand, or talk; for a mayor out of City Hall is a shining mark for any politician. And so, coming to Broadway, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Broadway's night shopping crowds. Gatsby, walking towards that group, saw a young girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration ...
