Here goes, It's the Moon.
Now for one I heard recently ( I'm not good at making up riddles ):
I'm more valuable than gold, yet I don't cost a penny,
I'm difficult to find but easy to lose.
What am I?

I got one:

The word has 7 letters.
It's greater than God,
More evil than the Devil,
And if you eat it you will die.

What is it?

A friend or friendship? Perhaps...

Here's one I just came up with.

I can be very difficult to handle and even more terrifying to face...
I am feared by so many, yet often bring joy that can not be replaced.
I have made the strongest of men cry and even the saddest soul sing.
Cascading tears of both joy and sorrow, I am surely known to bring.

What am I?

Here's one I heard the Riddler say once:

What can be cracked,
What can be made,
What can be told,
And what can be played?

The closest I can think of is the truth, or maybe fire.
Also, I have one:
He who makes it tells of it not,
He who takes it knows it not,
He who knows it wants it not.

Here's a riddle from my childhood:
Little Nancy Etticot in a white petticoat,
And a red nose.
The longer she stands, the shorter she grows.

Well that would be a pretty good answer too, Esperanza. But the Cornelius of thy Voodoo was correct in saying 'the truth'. In all fairness though, since it was a 'just made up by me' riddle, it's not as cut-n-dry as some of the other ones and a little more open to interpretation.

And I can't believe it.....I thought for sure that I had guessed right about that Twinkie! Oh well, time to ponder some more riddles! Wait just a sec! Did you just answer with 'is it a fart?'

Decius' tarantula would be quite proud of that one!

Counterfeit money.

Little Nancy Etticot in a white petticoat,
And a red nose.
The longer she stands, the shorter she grows.


I've not seen this phrased exactly this way before, but it's surely a candle.

And now for mine:

My sides are firmly laced about, yet nothing is within;
you'll think my head is strange indeed, being nothing else but skin.
The better I serve, they beat me more:
to dance, to play, to speak, to war.

Quite masterfully done, of course...

'Tis but something that my kids love to make the most horrifically loud, yet wonderful noise on.....all the time, along with some other overly loud accompaniment and off-key wailing.

If spelled backwards it rhymes with bird!

If the word is split in half it is an inquisitive and uncertain way to personally address a physician.

And it is also a way to use persistent efforts to obtain business and or support.

Oh wise and clever Ratbeard, yes, it is a candle. And it's now obvious that my answer ( of a fart ) was completely wrong.
