    I just heard this stupid riddle so I thought I'd put it here. lol. I'm not sure if anyone's heard it, but if you have, could you keep it to yourself for a few days so as not to ruin it for others. OK here it goes.

    What walks on four legs at dawn, 2 legs at noon, and 3 legs in the evening?

    Yeah,
    I wasn't sure how wide-spread this riddle was, but I guess everyone knows it. That's why it's under the title "stupid riddle". That and the fact that the answer is not very good (in my opinion).

    Hmmmmm, it's been almost 40 years since I was in high school, but I believe that was from Sophoclese's Oedipus Rex, a 2500 year old greek play. Oedipus solved the riddle of the Sphinx. Then killed his father. Then married his mother and gouged out his eyes. Happy happy, joy joy.
