    The man who invented it doesn't want it. The man who bought it doesn't need it. The man who needs it doesn't know it. What is it?

    yep.. coffin is right.

    yours is easy... it's a STAMP!

    Ok i have one with a little bit of Math

    Asif asked his mother for a $90 toy. His mother told him he would have to the make the money himself. To help him, she said she would match however much money Asif made in the first day of his job with the exact square of that amount. "So if you earn $2, I'll give you $4", his mother said. On the first day, twenty people each bought an item for 15¢, bringing in $3. At first the mother thought that she had gotten off lightly, until Asif told her that she owed exactly as much as the toy cost. How did Asif outwit his mother?

    Square of $3=$9
    $3=300c(cents)
    Square of 300c=90000c=$900
    I think Asif got 10 times more than he wanted, if he told his mother that he earned 300 cents.

    Another quicky
    Forwards I am heavy. Backwards I am not. What am i?

    Hey that was cool. Square of 3$ = 9$ but square of 300¢ = 90000¢ = 90$. How did this happen?

    Ok the above riddle is easy... it's TON!

    Let me get another quickie.

    What can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?
