Well, you all seem like a swell group of folks, so I wonder if you could help me out with something that has been bothering me for the past 10 years or so.
I was on the Green Tortoise (alternative bus service, mostly on the West Coast) and the group of people I was traveling with were feeling a bit loose (read: stoned) when we got into a riddle contest. One fellow presented a riddle which he said came from, IIRC, Plato. Problem is, the bugger didn’t bother to tell us the answer. Perhaps someone out there would be kind enough to provide an answer, or at least a well thought out clue?
It goes like this:
What I caught, I left behind.
What I brought, I could not find.
I’m sure the answer is so blatent, it’s not even funny…
And while we’re on the subject, anybody know of any good riddles they would like to share?
