Morbid Death Riddles (For Fun!)

At my work, for entertainment, my co-workers have been giving each other riddles to figure out over the course of the day (or some days for the hard ones). I thought that I would share some with you and see if you can figure them out. In three days, I'll post the answers. The first four have to do with death, because they are more fun (its like we're detectives or something!). You have to figure out how they died (except the fourth one). The last three are more kiddish but still kinda fun. If you look hard enough, you can find the answers on the Internet but please don't spoil it for everyone else if you do decide to cheat. Good luck...

1. A man is lying dead in the desert with a match next to his hand. He is nude.

2. A man is working at his occupation when he realizes there is a tear in his shirt. 15 minutes later, he is dead.

3. A man is lying dead in a pool of blood and water. He has wounds but there is no weapon.

4. A man must draw a piece of paper out of a hat. There are two possibilites. One piece of paper says "Life" and one piece of paper says "Death". If he draws "Life", he will live. If he draws "Death", he will be shot. An enemy, seeing this opportunity, switches out the "Life" paper with a "Death" paper so that both papers say "Death". The man, though knowing this, cannot tell his captors that he knows that it is rigged. How does he survive?

5. What is brown and sticky?

6. Why is six afraid of seven?

Go ahead and post your answers if you know it!

#5 rice?

Stace-Ghost said...

#3 did Chuck Norris roundhouse kick him in the face?

Bullet for Babs said...

#5 is not rice and #3 was not Chuck Norris...

Inside Stories said...

I know 3, 4 and 6. 3 - he was stabbed with an icicle in the heart. 4- he draws out one slip, somehow destroys or loses it to look like it is accdiental, then tells the person to draw out the other slip, which would of course be the opposite of the one he'd drawn, forcing the person to say the one he drew was "life". 6-because seven ate (eight) nine. I will have to think about the other 3. :0)

Inside Stories said...

Is number five masking tape?

Bullet for Babs said...

3, 4, and 6 were right...5 is not masking tape...

Delirious said...

I figured the first one froze to death. lol

Nene said...

These sound like those questions on the Net Flix commercials. :0)

Stace-Ghost said...

number 1 is driving me crazy...why would you be naked in the desert with a match?!?!

Inside Stories said...

Is # 2 a scuba diver or an astronaut or someone who works in a poisonous environment?
Was #1's match lit or unlit?

Nene said...

#1 was hot so he took off all his clothes, then it got night so he got cold, got a match out (of where I don't know) but died of thirst or exposure before he could light it? This is a REALLY wild guess! :0)

Just because its a desert doesn't mean its hot. The Gobbi frequently plunges to subzero temperatures. A desert is classified by percipitation, not heat.
#3- Inside stories is right. He just needs to eat the first piece of paper he pulls out, without looking at it.
#5-- come one people... does rice or tape sound morbid to you? Its probably something like coagulated blood.

number 1.. the parachute was crashing so the had to take of their clothes. It was still crashing so one of the guys had to jump out. The guy with the shorter stick had to jump out. That's why he's naked and has a match stick.

#5 - a stick

Anonymous said...

isn't #5 a stick? brown and "stick"y?

Anonymous said...

#1- the guy was in a hot air balloon with other people. it was going to crash so first they lightened the load by getting rid of their clothes..then they had to lighten the load again, so they drew short sticks (or a broken match) to see who would jump out and sacrifice themselves for the survival of the others.

#1 is the mn burned himself so his closes burned off and he was naked and dead. :) --sleepey--

I know #3 is an icicle and #5 is a stick. My dad used to tell me that joke. -.-"

Anonymous said...

i know 2 is he was an astronaut and his suit torn so it let the oxygen out

the man is nude and holide a match is because he was in a hot air balloon and it was crashing of a highweight and they drew matches to see who would jump and it was him who got the short. he is nude because they took their clothes off as a 1st resort to lighten it up. the alternative answer is he burned himself to death

#5 Its stick, dude. a stick.

Anonymous said...

#2 is a soldier, the tear is a bullet hole in his vest or uniform, the he died in 15 minutes from blood loss :/ my guess

I think number one is that a group of 3 was in a hot air balloon, and there was too much weight so they took off their clothes to lose some weight, to no avail. They then drew matches to see who would be forced to jump out. that man lost.
