A riddle for you.....

I thought that this was cute and had to share...

A survey taken shows that

80% of Kindergarten students got the answer to this,
where only 17% of Stanford Unniversity seniors got this one right.

Here it it.....

What is greater than God? More evil than the devil? The poor have it, and the rich need it? And if you eat it, you'll die?

What is is?

I will post the answers after you Einsteins have your go at this one.

I'll take a guess, I haven't heard this riddle before!

Indeed, the nothing thing sounds rather good, i will go with that one also. Good thing there are people in here who can think, cause i would have said something like "a train".

hmmm... I agree, the answer is nothing.

the poor have nothing, the rich want nothing, and it you dont eat, you will die...

does this mean that I can finally graduate from kindergarten now?

Okay, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be proud to have the equivalent brain of a kindergarden student!!! LOL

I just love riddles! Hmmm, maybe I'm a hobbit!
