Couple tricky riddles, eh? The correct answer to number one was "Corn", though I'll give points to the answers of "chicken" and "fish". The second, a simple play on words; the answer was "and".

Two of the fastest horsemen in the kingdom proposed to the king's daughter. The king didn't like either suitor, but he wanted to look fair so he suggested a horse race in which the winner would have the daughter's hand. The only catch was that the winner would be the person whose horse came in second. The king was certain the race would never take place because he felt that neither horseman would let the other win. Finally, the king's daughter made a suggestion to the two horsemen that would guarantee a fair race. What did she suggest?
Try that one on for size.
