    Riddle Me This

    Is anybody here good at riddles? (I stink at them)

    Anyway we have joke threads, story threads, word-association threads, and so I thought I'd start a riddle thread, just because I know we have some good riddlers here.

    I'll start. This one isn't original, but it's got a nice literary tie-in. I came across it in a Stephen King book:

    What's the difference between a cat and a comma?
    .
    .
    .
    .

    (C'mon it's easy)
    The thread rules are simple - Solve the riddle and then give us one of your own.

    What begins with T, ends with T and has T in it?

    Bah-hahahah!

    A circus is a cunning array of stunts.

    Sorry 'bout that one Papaya. Me and PB were - and this speaks to my last riddle - engaged in a little locker-room talk.
