Riddle #1

A farmer was going to town with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. When

he came to a stream, he had to cross in a tiny boat, and could only take across

one thing at a time. However, if he left the fox alone with the goose, the fox

would eat the goose, and if he left the goose alone with the corn, the goose

would eat the corn. How does he get them all safely over the stream?



Riddle #2

A frog fell into a hole that was 14 1/2 feet deep. He could jump 3 feet, but

he slid back a foot each time he jumped. How many jumps does it take him to

get out of the hole?

Goose can swim, farmer can swim, corn and fox in boat.

Or, goose and fox can swim across, farmer and corn in the boat.

And why do you need a boat to cross a stream? :lol:
