Riddles Contest- Updated

You never know what you're going to get on this blog. Sometimes it's jokes and inspiration, sometimes it's family and adoption updates...but today it is Riddles. Let's see if you can figure these out:

1) One morning while she was eating breakfast, Laura's diamond ring slipped off her finger and fell into a full cup of coffee, but the ring didn't get wet. Why not?

2) What grows down while it grows up?

3) What is the only professional sport which neither the players nor the spectators know the score until the match is over?

4) What turns everything around but does not move itself?

5) What is the worlds greatest world-wide use of cowhide?

6) I know a man who can shave 10 times a day and still have a full beard. Who is he?

If you think you know the answer to any of these riddles please post as many answers as you can in the comments section. I'll post the answers to them soon!

Encouraging bible verse:
I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark. John 12:46, NLT

Here are the answers to the above riddles:

1) The cup was filled with dry, ground coffee
2) A goose
3) Boxing
4) mirror
5) to cover cows
6) He's a barber

Another update: Smarty pants! I showed Jim (my husband) the riddles without showing him the answers and then sat back and listened to him processing each question and got every one of them right!!!

Way to go Jim: You are the winner of the riddles from Uncle John's Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader. I'll work on getting you a trophy. I consider it my "duty" to do so!

Wow, I'm impressed. Some of these are correct. No ones got a guess for #4 yet? These are tough. I'm surprised how many you guys figured out already. The ones that are not correct are also really great guesses.

Joyfully, Angela
