The Impossible Question

Ok, I know this thread’s gonna die when someone gets it right, but let’s see… answer this

What’s greater than God,
more evil than Satan,
rich men need it,
and poor men have plenty of it?

Nothing… bye bye thread. :slight_smile:



Ok, any non-theists have an answer?

The way I originally heard the joke was a little more interesting:

What is more powerful than God,
more evil than Satan,
and if you eat it you will die?

I originally heard it from my 8-year old cousin-in-law. Not bad for a kid.

I first heard this as a UL that claimed that this was a survey question that children correctly answered far more often than adults.

Leave me out of your stinkin’ riddles!


Yer pal,

Three weeks, one day, 23 hours, 9 minutes and 55 seconds.
918 cigarettes not smoked, saving $114.82.
Life saved: 3 days, 4 hours, 30 minutes.

What’s greater than God?
Well, in my own experiences… sex.

What’s more evil than Satan?
Well, if you hear a lot of ultra-right-wingers… sex.

What do rich people have?
Well… since they don’t have anything else to do (except charities and fundraisers)… sex.

What do poor people have plenty of?
Well… I suppose I COULD say “sex”, but I’m not entirely sure… for this one, I’d say “numbers”.

Three out of four ain’t bad, and sex is better than nothing, isn’t it?
