Correct!

So things don't get out of hand i would prefer it if i was the only one to post riddles in this thread! I will add some rules to the first post.

Riddle #2:
A cold night in the cemetery two men are digging a grave.
The first man turns to the second and says: "Where's the shovel?"
The second man replies: "Sure Does!"

Why was this his response?

He is actually a psycho killer cannibal. His reply "Sure does" is not actually about the shovel. He is actually referring to his inner thought "He looks tasty". The reason he has this inner dialogue is because he suffers from multiple personality disorder.

Times Up

The Answer: The second man misunderstood, thinking that he had stated "wears" instead of Where is. As in causes the shovel to wear out.

Riddle #3:

Between us lies the perfect line,
The man of grain forbid me to dine,
Together in murder but alone all the time
What am i?

Clearly you are a CROW....

The men of grain get angry when the crows eat their grain.

When theres a group of crows, they're called a murder, but crow's usually travel alone.
