    The first is needed to make quotes you see,
    And it often sticks up when it's time for noon tea.

    The second's biggest distinction is found
    Bearing the symbol of love that is bound.

    The third should be biggest but that can depend,
    Never standing alone or it may offend.

    The fourth is oft used when making a selection
    Or if you should need a gun for protection.

    The fifth is the fattest and oddest by far,
    And can sometimes be found in a wrestling war.

    What are they?

      I have never heard the riddle until now and honestly some change is needed on this forum as some of the posts are repetitive and boring so who cares about this one it is a simple riddle. smile

       Off the King's kitchen door

    2. A coat of brown, and white therin
       But sunshine yellow mine inside...

    3. Within a spiny green house,
       A soft brown skin,
       A house of yellow is therin,
       Then purest white,
       To crunch and bite...
       Within a green house, a brown house;
       Within the brown house, a yellow house;
       And a white house within.

      is #2 a banana?

      Fine! I won't be as involved in forums anymore...

      PPS I knew it was a simple riddle... I wanted to see if anyone liked solving them before I chose a hard one...

      I'm not sure what #1 is, but I think #2 is a brown egg and #3 is a pistachio nut.

        curio has seemed to hit it on the nail...but I think he is probably one of those very intelligent superfreaks or something

    Think I've worked out the Riddle Asher, from AEvans.

    I might even use it as an ice-breaker at work sometime.

    Nice one.
