1. We are little creatures;
all of us have different features.

One of us in glass is set;
one of us you'll find in jet.
Another you may see in tin,
and the fourth is boxed within .
If the fifth you should pursue,
it can never fly from you.
What are we?

3. A boat has a ladder that has six rungs, each rung is one foot apart. The bottom rung is one foot from the water. The tide rises at 12 inches every 15 minutes. High tide peaks in one hour. When the tide is at it's highest, how many rungs are under water?

4. One morning as Paul was getting his newspaper, he noticed on his new house something that needed to be fixed. Heading over to the hardware store, he spoke to the manager, describing his problem. The manager said, "I know just what you need". He led Paul down some aisles and stopped in front of some bins. Digging down into some of the bins, he set something up on the shelf. "I saw your house when it was built", the manager said. "Here's all that you'll need and how much it'll cost... five will be 15 cents while fifty will be 30 cents, 250 will be 45 cents, while 2507 will only cost you 60 cents. One lady, about 20 blocks from your house, bought 30247 and only paid 75 cents! These are black, but they also come in gold and silver." What was the manager selling?

Who is this Will Power you keep talking about <img src=/S/munch.gif border=0 alt=munch width=19 height=17> ?

I had Will Power here once but he just disappeared...must be a contractor or part timer

Jerry, he's a superhero who comes to the rescue of damsels in puzzle distress.

My grandfather said Will was a bad name to have in the army.
He'd always be asking "Why me?" when they ordered "Fire at Will."

...but I suppose it didn't really matter because apparently he is a super hero and as you know super heros can dodge bullets and leap tall buildings <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

9. ## Re: A few more...

Some superheroes do not even need to dodge bullets, since they are invulnerable...

10. ## Re: A few more...

...or they can catch them (Superman), freeze them (Frozone from The Incredibles), melt them (Human Torch), or....

Ok, I'll stop now before I really embarrass myself!
