Sixth Weekly Riddling Derby

Greeting once again readers, for the latest riddling derby (appropriate applause)! This time, as is accredited to Iron Wyvern, we shall be changing the Riddling Derby of the Fourth Week, give or take. We shall in fact be publishing three riddles of exceeding difficulty, so as to give a brain work out to several proven riddle whizzes in our readership. 
I  like Riddle Three, and it might take a while.


Riddle One: I spit like bacon, am made with an egg,
I have plenty of backbone but lack good legs,
I peel like an onion but still remain whole,
I'm long like a flagpole, yet fit in a hole
What am I?

Riddle Two: What are these three related items? When I am placed somewhere I will never stand up. Whatever you give me I will eat. When I go I never return.

Riddle Three: The answer to each clue is a single, 100-point word, or a word whose letters add up to 100, with a = 1, b = 2.

i. Peanut butter tastes like this.
ii. The hat a Dad wears.
iii. To fire a chef,
iv. A smart timepiece.
v. Figured it out again.
vi. Where a kid can sleep.
vii. The magical fruit leaves you doing this.
viii. Betrayed for this much silver.
ix. A baked good that is height challenged.
x. A sticky way to neaten your hair.


  1. The first one is a snake. The second one is stove, fire, and smoke, and for the last one....

    I know the first one is nutty, and the last one is honeycomb, and I forget the rest. :P

  2. Great solving, and now I'm glad i added the hard one as the new third. I actually got the stove, fire and smoke, though I couldn't get the snake.

    1. I think I figured out the third one! Took a lot of thesaurus searching and calculator calculating. :P

      1. Nutty
      2. Fatherhood
      3. Cookout
      4. Clockwise
      5. Resolved
      6. Boycott
      7. Tooting(?)
      8. Thirty
      9. Shortcake
      10. Honeycomb

  3. Nice one Hyperlinkzer, I would have used the thesaurus too. I now present you with the invisible but still honorable holographic laurels. CONGRATULATION! ADULATION! You've won the Riddling Derby, and i look forward to next week's addition.
